The TeaParty Leaders who have taken over the Bedford
Co. Republican Committee, in addition to other Virginia units, have “censured” three
republican supervisors (who were elected by and are accountable to the voters) and who apparently either will not or do not salute the
Aparently charging forward under the snake-banner were Nate Boyer
and Travis Witt.
These are leaders of the same team that threw the 5th
District Republican Caucus at Farmville into disarray. After loosing that fight, they then launched
a September sneak attack against the 5th District Republican
Committee members at Prospect where they again were thwarted.
The fact that a highly motivated minority special interest clique
can take over a unit's committee does not mean or even imply that they represent
the majority of Republican voters in that unit.
As an example, in Franklin County one such person ran for county public office and was rejected by 87% of the voters.
Something about delusions of grandeur.
It is difficult to comprehend that this group would choose
to take such a negative and divisive action at this time, 11 days from a major
critical election that has the potential to shift the balance of power in Washington.
Why aren’t these “good Republicans” out campaigning for Ed
Gillespie and Robert Hurt instead of fermenting sour grapes?
