From the National ABC story on Democrats filming Republicans in Richmond:
""It's an effort to demonize Republicans," said Shaun Kenney, communications director for the Virginia Republican Party. "It's about targeting and embarrassing Republican delegates," he said."
""The concern of a lot of folks, both Democrat and Republican, is that it would be one thing to record votes, but it's another thing to try to catch delegates doing something and use it politically," he said.
Kenney argued a key example is the edited video of Republican delegate Jeffrey M. Frederick.
"Take a look at that one," said Kenney. "This is about shaming or badgering Republicans.""
At Shaun's request:
No, Shaun, that is not about shaming or badgering Delegate Frederick. That's about showing people what an asshole he is. Remember- this is the same Delegate who went up and screamed at a high school student last year- then when he found out it was going to be published called that student up and offered to "be his friend".
I think everyone in his district should watch that video and decide if Jeff Frederick is worthy of being in public office. I'm glad Shaun agrees. And I'm sure DPVA thanks you Shaun for the publicity for their site.
