This post doubles as Gerry Connolly Sucks, Part 7- read below for why.
This is an amazing youtube video, showing the clear link between the authoring of the Prince William Immigration Resolution and a hate group.
The situation in Prince William County is totally out of control. Yet, the local elected Democrats have still refused to make any effort to repeal this resolution- even after evidence like this video has surfaced. This goes especially for Prince William's two most prominent elected Democrats- Supervisor John Jenkins, who voted for, and continues to support the resolution- and Virginia Delegate Paul Nichols who has introduced some of the most hateful anti-immigrant legislation in Richmond. Nichols had a bill to attempt to deny bail to immigrants, stop immigrants from buying homes, and even attempted to give immunity to local government workers enforcing immigration laws (presumably so they could use ANY amount of force they wanted without risk of criminal prosecution).
Now we learn the resolution so strongly supported by "Democrats" Nichols and Jenkins looks to have been written by a hate group. Shocking.
But there's something else Nichols and Jenkins are working on (apparently the hate groups don't keep them busy enough!)- they have both endorsed Gerry Connolly for the open Congressional seat.
This June will mark the first time Prince William Democrats have had a chance to weigh in on what kind of Democrats they want to nominate since this resolution passed...
Or they could nominate Leslie Byrne who is not supported by the local Democrats coordinating with hate groups.
What makes this even more important is the 11th District, while taking up over 80% of Prince William has a majority of its population in Fairfax County- meaning even if opponents of this kind of campaign are not yet in the majority in Prince William- they can still elect someone who stands with them with the help of Fairfax County voters.
Nominating Leslie Byrne, and then electing her to Congress will put someone in office who will stand up to Corey Stewart without having their hands tied. Having Leslie as the Congresswoman from Prince William will be a huge step towards reversing Corey's reign of terror.
Connolly, by organizing his campaign around Nichols and Jenkins will never have that political flexibility. If I'm wrong about this- point me to somewhere that Gerry has condemned the hateful legislation Nichols offered in this General Assembly. I don't think it exists.
Thanks to Paul Nichols, who donated to Corey Stewart's campaign for Chairman of Prince William for showing us that once again he has zero political judgment. But at least he gives us a paper trail to see who Gerry is really associating himself with in Prince William.
