One of Mike Messier’s defenders has decided to accuse me of lying about whether a complaint has been filed with the Commonwealth Attorney’s office concerning Mike Messier’s bribery attempt made to the Prince William County Republican Committee on February 26th. Since this particular commenter has actually behaved himself, unlike many of his allies, and this does provide an opportunity to open up the discussion on this again, I’ll meet his bluff and raise by a felony indictment. Or at least what should be one. If you click on the thumbnail on the left, you’ll be able to see the complaint that I faxed to the Commonwealth Attorney’s office on February 28th, 2007. Anyone demanding further proof that the Commonwealth Attorney’s office received a complaint regarding Mr. Messier is welcome to contact Paul Ebert.
Of note is that the meeting minutes approved by the committee precisely substantiate my allegations. It should be interesting to see if Mike Messier’s defenders are willing to accuse the Secretary of the Prince William County Republican Committee of lying, and the entire committee which approved these minutes of being complicit in such a lie. That should encourage some votes, but not votes for Mr. Messier.
I still can’t figure out why it is that Mike Messier’s small but dedicated band of defenders seem so determined to prove just how politically inept they and the Mike Messier campaign really are. When confronted with Mike Messier’s long and uninspiring record, they baselessly accuse Sheriff Glen Hill of being a “corrupt thug” and try to argue that my recollection of Messier’s utterly brain-dead statements, along with over 100 members of the PWCRC, are somehow flawed. Not one of these defenders were apparently present themselves to hear Messier’s comments, but they’re certain that I, and over one hundred witnesses are wrong.
In addition to potentially infuriating the most reliable Republican primary voters in the county, and drawing what I am sure will be the ire of at least one district supervisor, Mike Messier’s campaign is floundering for meaningful policy differences and has become utterly pointless. If the Commonwealth Attorney’s office can complete it’s investigation in a timely fashion and indict Mike Messier for violating state election laws, this campaign should be over.
It can’t come soon enough.
