I wanted to kill this rumor that has been floating around for the last week that I would be running for Fairfax County/City Clerk of the Court in the June primary. It's my fault that the rumor went as far as it did because I was asking people what they thought when they called me about it.
Unfortunately some of the threads we had about the radical lobbying career of David Miller turned into a debate on me instead of on the announced candidate for the seat.
So now, let's get focused back on the issue at hand here. We have a "Democratic" candidate who has never voted in a Democratic primary, accepted 1.6 million dollars to lobby for the Scientologists, including helping them get tax-exempt status like a mainstream church. That's right- he got a cult tax-free status.
There is still over 10 days to file for this seat. We are in crunch time here people. This will hurt the entire ticket. If you don't understand why- think about the conservative churches. What's going to get them out to vote in huge numbers in this low turnout election? Transportation? Public Schools? Or a Scientologist Lobbyist on the Democratic ticket? Even if that only drew a few hundred additional voters in key legislative races- that could tip the balance this year.
Will anyone stand up to stop this man from hurting the entire Democratic ticket? I'm sorry I can't do it- but I have too many other things going on right now to take on a countywide campaign in Fairfax.
