David H. Miller might be the sleaziest candidate of 2007.
This weekend at Viva Vienna, the former national lobbyist for the Scientologists, who claims to have no Scientology ties otherwise was seen campaigning IN the Scientology booth this weekend. Talk about taking a weakness and turning it into a... bigger weakness.
Since then he has ousted his campaign manager Ginny Peters. Ginny is also Chair of the Fairfax County Democratic Committee. Now, I have little respect for Peters who is known to be incompetent, lazy and has signed libelous and false letters under her signature from the FCDC which could leave the committee in serious legal jeopardy. However, I'm going to put that aside for a minute because Miller should have known all that when he hired her.
But more interesting is how Miller used Ginny and threw her out. He kept her on as his campaign manager past the filing deadline for other Democratic candidates while she ran around the county bragging of the job he had offered her and saying no one else should run against him for the nomination. Now that he is the nominee, he ousts her before June. Guess Ginny won't be in the Courthouse everyday after all.
David Miller. Worst Candidate of 2007.
