Jeff Dion Called On To Drop Out?

By Greg L | 21 May 2007 | 51st HOD District | 17 Comments

NLS is reporting that another Democratic candidate for the 51st District is interested in running, but doesn’t want to run unless Jeff Dion drops out of the race.  I would imagine that Ben isn’t talking about Paul Nichols, since he doesn’t seem to have a reputation for being shy about what he wants.  Of note is that the candidate filing deadline for Democrats in the 51st District expires tomorrow, at which time we should have a much better idea about who the eventual Republican nominee will face.

One, two or three candidates?  Tomorrow we’ll know.

    I hope that Mr. Dion will drop out.

    One problem is that Mr. Dion has recently run for and lost a lesser elective office, and is not likely to improve when seeking a higher office such as delegate.

    The second problem is you-know-what.

    The Dems would have a great chance at peeling Republicans away from Gill with an open or covert “Google Faisal Gill” campaign. But that will be less effective if an openly gay man runs as the Democratic nominee.

    Incredible as it may seem, some people find gays more frightening than terrorist spokespersons, and will choose the latter as the lesser of two evils. But if someone who is not openly gay runs against Gill that person will win.

    I am all for openly gay people running in districts where they can win. Open gays are better than closet cases like that allegedly conservative molester Rep. Mark Foley in Florida.

    Yes, I like Barney Frank, who is the congressman in my homo, I mean home, district in Massachusetts. Incredible as it may seem the world did not come to an end when Frank won. In fact, my nephew and niece who live in his district seem somewhat prejudiced against gays, if that is any comfort.

    I notice that if my nephew is mad at my niece, who is very feminine and has boyfriends, then he will call her “gay”

    So the problem is not gay candidates, but Democratic gay candidates in conservative Republican districts. I hope that Mr. Dion will run for a position for which he is more electable than HOD-51 delegate.

    This is what some have tried to get Pandak to do. She’s running for Chairman again just months after she got solidly beat for that position in 2006 — a year that greatly favored Democrats (Dems in PWC have much better turn-out in Congressional/ Presidential years and horrible turn-out in off-year elections). She’d have a damn good chance, however, at the 51st, a district that is trending blue.

    “the 51st, a district that is trending blue.”!?!?!

    Not sure about that. After all, it was the last district held by a Democrat in PWC. I always considered it a Democrat district, until Michele McQuigg won it, and thought that, if they’d run a decent candidate, they might have a shot at winning it back.

    They’d have a better chance running an inaminate object like a potted plant — which is who they ran in four VA congressional districts in 2000 — the 5th, 6th, 7th and 10th.

    A lot of Dems have a loss-wish. They are happy being in the minority and complaining. So when the Gill kool-aid drinkers try to hand them HOD-51 on a platter some of them try and boot it away.

    Well, Michele isn’t exactly “conservative”.

    And the precincts in the 51st trend toward the middle ground. Michele was well suited to that district. Dion’s policies are probably even well suited to the district. Unfortunately, for him, the fact that he is gay moves him far to the left of that district. Whether he is, in actuality, to the left, is irrelevant. Perception is everything.

    I agree, Anon. It’s hard to call someone who supports homosexual “marriage” “left.” Nihilist is certainly more accurate.

    Well, if the Dems did nominate Dion their slogan could be “Ecce Homo!” (Behold the man!)

    IF they did nominate him, I would say “Ick, Homo!” which translates to “Gross, a Fag”.

    Have you SEEN what Paul Nichols looks like?

    For a change, “Batson,” I have no dispute with you.

    I find the gay-bashing a little offensive. Dion is the wrong choice for delegate, but not because he is gay.

    Does everything have to be so shallow?

    I expect JM next to explain how we couldn’t elect a Jew to office here because there are too many Catholics.

    Sorry, charles, but lighten up a little. “Batson” made a play on words, an effort at humor. Maybe it wasn’t funny (I think it was), but it wasn’t “gay-bashing.” “Gay-bashing” is like “homophobia”: a belitting label which belittles people for daring to hold others responsible for their questionable personal choices.

    “”"I expect JM next to explain how we couldn’t elect a Jew to office here because there are too many Catholics.”"”

    We shouldn’t nominate someone who isn’t likely to win.

    “We”!?!?! Who’s “we,” JM? You’re a Democrat. Most of the others who sign their names here at least call themselves Republicans.

    “”"James Young said on 22 May 2007 at 8:41 am:

    Charles and I and whoever else Charles was referring to. He used “we” and I responded in kind.

    “”"Most of the others who sign their names here at least call themselves Republicans.”"”

    So? The Lee District Democratic Committee told me that I was not a Democrat, unanimously voted to deny me membership while unanimously approving everyone else’s, and complained that I criticized Democrats and supported Republicans (Lisa Marie Cheney, later George Allen.)

    I was there, and that was what they said. James can argue with them if he wants to.

    A better question is why James supports Faisal Gill, a partner in an immigration law firm who advertises that his firm can delay or evade deportation orders by belatedly filing for asylum status. Sounds like a Democratic thing to me. James and Faisal are stabbing people in the back on illegal immigration.

    Let’s not bash Paul Nichols just yet because of his looks (http://www.ganglandnews.com/gotti21.jpg). Paul was my divorce lawyer and a real shark in the courtroom. That being said, if he is the Democratic candidate (which IF the Dems were smart, he would be), then when Julie faces him after the Convention, then a tough fight it will be, indeed.
