Voters reject GOP’s choice of knuckle-dragging anti-Semite for state senate

And in an easy victory in yesterday’s special election to fill Attorney General Mark Herring’s state senate seat, Democrat Jennifer Wexton defeated the hand-picked darling of the Loudoun GOP far-right wackos, knuckle-dragging anti-Semite John Whitbeck, as well as independent challenger Joe May.

Wexton secured an outright majority, beating the combined total of her two opponents with a solid 52.7% of the vote (to 37.5% for knuckle-dragging anti-Semite Whitbeck and 9.8% for May). Continue reading


An ethics riddle

What’s the difference between long-serving Loudoun Board of Supervisors Chairman Scott York (R) and recent Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell (R)?

They both . . .

• provide special favors in return for large cash contributions

• take free trips and other goodies from people who want something in return

Here, for example, was how he explained his position on public schools and transportation during the campaign:

“My priorities are holding the line on taxes and spending, while at the same time advocating for the continuous improvement of our schools, insisting on our fair share of transportation funding to ease traffic congestion.”

Well, a funny thing happened on the way to Richmond! It took New State Delegate right-wing wacko Dave LaRock two nanoseconds to start filing bills reflecting his own true self this month. Continue reading

Dick Black, first-class weirdo

A thoroughly researched article in Slate the other day reminding us what a very creepy weirdo Loudoun state senator, and now US Congress candidate, Dick Black is.

Still shilling for the Hounds

Our all-Republican Loudoun Board of Supervisors is apparently such a bunch of enthusiastic fans for the increasingly non-existent Loudoun Hounds baseball team that they have even started pasting Hounds logo decals on official county vehicles, such as the one spotted the other day on Battlefield Parkway (below).

Want to know how you can get your company’s logo on official Loudoun vehicles? Continue reading
