Faisal Gill Reckless Driving Case Postponed

By Greg L | 18 April 2007 | 51st HOD District | 50 Comments

The case involving Faisal Gill’s pending charge of Reckless Driving (Fairfax County General District Court Case Number GT07035772-00) has been continued from April 19th to June 21st, which postpones adjudication of this Class 1 Misdemeanor case until after the 51st District Convention. That’s unfortunate, since clearing himself of these charges before convention delegates would be asked to cast a vote for him would have answered some of what might be significant questions about his fitness for office. Instead, we will not know the outcome of this case until a nominee for the 51st District has been determined.

If the charges are baseless, I’d imagine that Faisal would be interested in clearing his name before the convention. Instead, we will surely be asked to just trust Faisal when he predictably says that the charges are baseless. The only thing is that we’ve seen this before, and voters should approach such representations with plenty of caution.

When the firm of Gill & Gallinger, of which Faisal is a partner, was cautioned by the state bar regarding an ethics complaint, Faisal Gill reported to James Young at SkepticalObserver that the complaint was dismissed, who then reported that it was time for me to eat crow. Whether it was a case of James Young misrepresenting what he heard, or of Faisal Gill reporting to him inaccurately isn’t perfectly clear, but despite all the issues I may have had with him I cannot possibly imagine that James Young would have done anything other than reliably report the information he received regarding a legal matter. The October 4th, 2006 letter from Assistant Ethics Counsel Barbara J. Balogh actually contained language cautioning Faisal Gill, which is substantially different than the representation made by Faisal Gill through James Young that there were no grounds for the ethics complaints that were filed. Since Faisal Gill has publicly commented on this matter and effectively waived his right to confidentiality, he should release this letter and demonstrate that his “trust me, this was baseless” statements then were accurate, especially since he is certainly about to make similar statements now.

Faisal is also trying to represent to others that his wearing of the uniform for campaign purposes was not a violation of DoD regulations, and is even going so far to say that his commander pre-cleared him taking campaign pictures while in uniform and then using them on his campaign materials. Most of us with any experience in the armed services find it a bit ridiculous that a commander would think he has the authority to waive DoD and Navy regulations, but this is apparently somewhat effective with those who lack such experience. Hopefully Faisal can lay out some public explanations of how to “trust me, this was baseless” on this issue as well, and allow us to evaluate why we should.

We keep hearing “trust me, this was baseless” regarding concerns over his work for the American Muslim Council while it was lead by Hamas supporter and now-convicted terrorist Abduraman Alamoudi. We heard this again about how he inconsistently disclosed information about this connection on various official documents. We heard “trust me, this is baseless” about his long-term association with Asim Ghafoor, a public supporter of imposing Sharia law in the United States. Over and over, concerns continue to be raised, and all we hear is the same thing. “Trust me, this was baseless”.

It’s starting to wear a little thin, don’t you think? Or did he just think we wouldn’t notice something like this?

    In this state, failure to use your turn signals can be charged as reckless driving.

    Reference to a “reckless driving” charge demonstrates just how desperate you are to smear Faisal, Greg. Anonymous is correct, if memory serves, and I know for a fact that a citation for reckless driving will be issued in an accident situation virtually as a matter of course.

    As for the continuance, you irresponsibly imply that Faisal requested it. Either say it, or don’t say it. Reference to the docket sheet (to which you seem to have access; it’s on-line) indicates that it was requested by him, but so what? Any regular reader is aware of the silly and frequently actionable innuendo that passes for fact around here, particularly about the man whose firm represents your litigation opponent, but seeking a continuance in this situation could mean as little as the fact that Faisal has an appearance scheduled elsewhere on behalf of a client that he could not get continued. Continuances are requested and granted all the time, and it is a rather pathetic and/or bored (i.e., no business) litigator who has never had occasion to request one.

    As for what the State Bar actually said, given that this all occurred about six months ago, it is hardly surprising that I cannot lay my hands on the letter Faisal received from the State Bar if, indeed, I ever had it. However, you apparently do. Rather than offering innuendo, you owe your intelligent readers — as opposed to the anonymous/slanderous trash who seem to dominate here — the actual, unexpurgated language of the letter.

    Or are you merely relating to us what homosexual activist Eric B. Bailey, or E. Brandon Bailey, or whatever (the guy who filed it), told you?

    It can also be applied to speeding if you are going 15 or 20 MPH over the speed limit. That can be tricky in some parts of Fairfax County where the speed limit suddenly drops and cops are there waiting to nab people.

  7. anonymous said on 18 Apr 2007 at 12:40 pm:

    It applies in excess of 20MPH over the limit or in excess of 80MPH. So going 81MPH in a 65MPH zone (easy enough to do on, say, I95) will get you nabbed.

    One common speed trap I see is on 28 in the area of I66 and 29–there the speed limit is 45MPH but it really should be 55MPH (and probably was before they improved the road).

    Does anyone know what the procedure with VDOT to ask them to review the speed limit for a stretch of roadway is? In Manassas or Manassas Park I’d just pick up the phone and call the public works director..

    He was going 81mph in a 55 mph zone. His lawyer works or worked with Cuccinelli in a law firm in Fairfax.

    That’s 26 over the speed limit. Hardly a turn signal.

    Well, if it were ONLY the “reckless driving” charge (whatever it’s based upon) and if it occurred just prior to the convention, I’d have sympathy for him; it could happen to anyone, that’s for sure.

    However, the really, really sad part to me is that no matter how much baggage the guy carries — and he carries quite a bit, you must admit — and no matter how little experience the guy has in elected office — he’s like me, none — some persist in supporting his candidacy. Is it the campaign promises? Is it that he has access to a lot of money? Is it that we need Muslim representation in our government? What is the “draw” in this guy?

    The docket entry does not indicate what the charge is, so everything here depends upon the truth of the assertions preceding, which would make Greg’s reference to these matters even more overwrought.

    George, as someone has already noted, 81 in a 55 MPH zone is not necessarily unreasonable, depending upon the location. Moreover, there was a time in Virginia when ANYTHING over 20 MPH over the speed limit was per se “reckless driving” (the law was changed a few years ago), leaving the charge to the discretion of the charging officer.

    As for you, Anon 1:44, it is far more likely that you fear that, if the reader knows your identity, he could learn of the biases/grudges that you hold, and expose them. ‘Fact is, I’ve never picketed anywhere in my life, so the “fear” you express is wholly imaginary. And “trash”? Trash is someone of so little substance or so much baggage that they have to attack their betters without revealing their identity.

    Whatever else I might say about Greg (or Jonathan Mark, for that matter), at least they’re not the kind of trash that engages in that craven behavior.

    On the other hand, I SUPPOSE that your anonymity might be based in humility. From what I can discern from your comment, you have good cause to be humble.

    And as for Jonathan’s remark, Greg had the common decency to permit my access on an occasion where he mentions me in a post. Leave it to the likes of you to use that decent gesture as the basis for belittlement. Then again, leave it to the likes of you to change mere speculation into an accusation. I NEVER said Faisal was in an accident, since I don’t know. I merely noted that it is one among many events that can trigger a charge of “reckless driving.”

    “”"81 in a 55 MPH zone is not necessarily unreasonable, depending upon the location. “”"

    It is unreasonable unless one is responding to an emergency, which I doubt was the case. Being late for an appointment is not an emergency.

    I found out a long time ago, the hard way, that no matter how late you are you should drive at your normal speed. Fortunately no one was hurt in my decades-old infraction. Indeed, the policeman, seeing that I was young and that the only damage was to my own vehicle, didn’t write me up.

    “”"I NEVER said Faisal was in an accident, since I don’t know. I merely noted that it is one among many events that can trigger a charge of “reckless driving.””"”

    Hmmm. I wonder whether Faisal was in an accident. Wouldn’t convention voters want to know whether their possible nominee has a potentially embarrassing trial coming up this summer?

    Wouldn’t Bolling, Cuccinelli and the other clueless Gill endorsers want to know?

    Wow, Jonathan! Perfection must be quite a burden.

    Of course, most of us mere mortals understand that, when driving on I-95 in any reasonably well-maintained vehicle, it is quite possible to get up to an excessive speed merely by the occasional inattention from which we mere mortals sometimes suffer, since 95 is the route number and, frequently, the effective speed limit. Hence, those of us inhabiting the real world understand that, without more, this is quite possibly nothing.

    Just another effort by you to turn a speck of dust into a mountain.

    Ok, so the facts that we know are this, Faisal is a candidate who is being investigated for possible violations of the UCMJ, has been investigated in the past for ethics violations (cleared just like Clinton was back in the day), has ties to known terrorists, and now is being charged with wreckless driving. And to think I used to think we would SCREEN candidates PRIOR to them running for baggage like this.

    Remember, Jim, perception plays A LOT in the way people vote and EVERYTHING in Faisal’s past, and present for this matter, can hold him succeptible to bribery or coercion. Everything I presented above is fact, it cannot be disputed. When Joe voter goes to http://www.google.com to do his/her own research on the two candidates (Julie and Faisal), independent of what literature EITHER candidate puts out, what impression/perception is going to be made.

    Yes, he sent his kids to Catholic schools…but so did Robert Hanssen. And no, no, no, that is NOTHING against Catholic schools, but since you have used it to say that this makes him an honorable person, my example shows that ALL types send their kids there. If I was a cop and doing a profile on the two candidates, it would NOT be good for Faisal.

    As far as I am aware anything over 20MPH is STILL “per se” reckless driving, and the officer still has the discretion whether to charge it as reckless or not.

    The only substantial change in that law is that they got rid of the part pertaining to 35MPH zones which made either 25 or 30MPH over the limit reckless (I do not recall which). With the old law, one driving 56MPH in a 35MPH zone could not have been charged as reckless. With the new law, it can be.

    Apparentlly if you give $14,000 to Bill Bolling’s campaign, as Faisal Gill did, then the rotund gubernatorial hopeful will carry your baggage for you.

    The screening process is “Did the check clear? We cannot have any HOD-51 nominees who don’t support the party (…me!)”

    “”"Was it REALLY necessary to bring up Faisal’s uniform fit again.”"”

    Faisal, like his Democratic counterpart Jim Moran up north of you, seems to have problems obeying the same rules that other people obey.

    If other people obey the speed limit (we don’t know what in fact Faisal did to get nabbed. There may have been an accident involved) Faisal does not.

    If other reservists obey government regulations against using photos of their uniformed selves in campaign lit, Faisal does not.

    If other reservists maintain their weight at required levels (I go to Weight Watchers myself. Faisal could keep himself within military weight restrictions if he wanted to) Faisal does not.

    If other lawyers obey the court’s dictums, Faisal does not, earning a judicial criticism in writing.

    If other government applicants fill out their security forms correctly and consistently Faisal does not, sparking a nationally-covered investigation and a great Michelle Malkin attack column entitled “Who Is Faisal Gill?”

    If other lobbyists, including other Moslems, refrain from working for violent Islamists Faisal does not, becoming the chief lobbyist for the now imprisoned Abdurahman Alamoudi’s American Muslim Council.

    Years ago I shared an office with a Marine Corps officer. He said that in every group of Marine trainees there are two percent who just don’t fit in. If you tell them to march to the left they march to the right. If you tell them to tie up their boots they loosen them.

    At some point PWC Republicans are going to have to ask themselves how someone with Faisal’s unusual record has even gotten close to becoming a House nominee.

    As for not mentioning Faisal’s intentional (yes, intentional. I go to Weight Watchers to maintain my weight. Obesity is not in Faisal’s genes. Very few people in the land of his birth are obese. Obesity is Faisal’s lifestyle choice. Sadly, he seems to be passing it to his children, but that is another unfortunately common story not unique to him.)

    Faisal’s obesity in violation of military guidelines for reservists is part of his repeated refusal to obey the same rules that everyone else does. We are right to mention it.

    …and so I ask again, Jonathan, “What is the “draw” in this guy?” It’s not one mistake — we could all understand one, we’ve all botched it once, but with him…it goes on and on…have I somehow failed to see his redeeming qualities? Yet we have people, even here, with access to sooooooo much information…and through Google too…who continue to support him. I don’t even know Faisal Gill, but with all these things, all these issues, why in the world would anyone even want to “take a chance” with him in our government?? I just don’t get it –why? If the only OTHER candidate were serving a 23 year sentence, perhaps…but that’s simply NOT the case.

    Unfortunately, “Joe Blow voter” doesn’t even know about Faisal’s background and all this stuff…he just sees Corey Stewart or Bill Bolling by his side…:(

    Anything over 80 is wreckless driving and 20 mph over the speed limit is wreckless driving. Both are at the officers discretion as he could as well charge you with failure to obey a highway sign or simply speeding with no actual limit. Many years ago the former chief of Manassas Park Police use to see people speeding and if he didn’t have proof such as radar or a pace he would simply charge people with the failure to obey a highway sign. Needless to say that was put to an end when he was appealed to circuit court after a conviction and was taken aside and told to cease that little escapade.

    Wouldn’t it be nice if “Batson D. Belfrey” — who clearly lives up to his pseudonym — gave his/her real name, so we could learn about his/her respect for the law? After all, “Batson” tells us “The law is the law,” so I guess that he/she has never EVER violated ANY law, whether it be speeding, changing lanes without signaling, spitting on the sidewalk, or a parking violation. After all, “The law is the law,” “Batson” tells us.

    But then again, records — except hiding his/her own — don’t mean much to the likes of “Batson,” who persists in smearing me as “a slip-and-fall lawyer,” contrary to the facts (I don’t know too many “slip-and-fall lawyer[s]” who handle major First Amendment class-action litigation nationwide and have won a case in the Supreme Court, but perhaps “Batson” does). I just guess some people get to cast insults at other commenters without consequence, so long as they’re directed at the “right” commenters.

    Of course, not “Anything over 80 is wreckless driving and 20 mph over the speed limit is wreckless driving.” “Wreckless” is adjudicated on a case-by-case basis, which is why officers have the discretion to issue or not issue a citation based upon observed circumstances. And, of course, nothing has been adjudicated yet.

    To respond to John, yes, John, perceptions matter. What delegitimizes the blogosphere is irresponsible smears, and efforts at irresponsible smears. Talking about “investigations” or “arrests” as though they were facts indicating bad behavior — particularly by the mostly craven cowards here, cowering in anonymity/pseudonymity, lest their questionable actions or motives be revealed — is irresponsible.

    Like me, you’re old enough to remember Labor Secretary Ray Donovan. While my knowledge of him makes me have little use for him as Labor Secretary he, too, was charged, and ultimately vindicated at trial, famously asking after his acquittal “Which office do I go to to get my reputation back?” Some with the resources to fight back — former Solicitor General Ted Olsen comes to mind, as do the three Duke students recently cleared of rape charges — have been luckier. If the latter isn’t a lesson in the dangers of using the justice system and/or throwing around irresponsible allegations of criminal misconduct to advance personal political agendas, I don’t know what is.

    While we are on the subject of speeding tickets, didn’t Gill’s buddy Chapman have a slew of tickets too. If memory serves, wasn’t Chappy dinged for speeding through a residential area, and for not wearing a seat-belt? I’ll bet he’ll be able to give Gilly-Gill all the scoop on traffic school.

    When you are a candidate for public office there really is no excuse for these things. Lets look at stupid Corzine of New Jersey who will get a ticket for not wearing a seatbelt because he thought he was above the law. And his state trooper driver will probably get fired for speeding at 91 mph. Is that reckless driving?

    Most candidates have to take extra care to make sure these things don’t happen. In Gill’s district, speeding is a big problem. Old Bridge road is known as a road where many accidents happen. There are many public schools with kids walking to and from school. Prince William police have been giving speeding tickets in the neighborhoods recently.

    I will share a few clues, and let the readers here guess who I am talking about:

    The person to which I am referring, has been described as a “buffoon”, and was running for office at some point in time.

    The person, while a declared candidate, forgot to file for the office he was seeking.

    James Young defends this former candidate even today, often citing a percentage of the vote that he received.

    Who could I be referring to? Was my reference so obscure that the ever-so-intelligent, always-correct James Young is baffled?

    I was reading this thread, thinking not too much of it all; really just the same old bickering. But then, in the back of my head, I thought “I think thou doth protest too much.” The eagerness to dismiss the “importance” of this one charge made me think … where’s there’s smoke, there’s fire. And ta-da. What do you think I found? Fire. (of sorts)

    Here are some facts from the court records. I’ve copied and pasted for those who doubt everything typed on this blog. If you’d like to look for yourself, follow this link: http://208.210.219.132/vadistrict/select.jsp

    One incident in Arlington County:
    1. 70 in a 55, 2/11/07; Guilty.

    3 incidents in Fairfax:
    1. Failure to Obey Highway Sign (could be a variety of things, including speeding), 5/1/06; Guilty.
    2. Failure to Obey Highway Sign, 10/12/06; Guilty.
    3. 81 in a 55, 2/2/07; continued twice

    An old one in PWC:
    1. 43 in a 25, 5/27/01; Guilty.

    I really don’t have much respect for a person who so frequently violates the law of this Commonwealth. And he also seems incapable of learning from his mistakes. He gets nailed for 81 in a 55 on 2/2/07 and then 9 days later on 2/11/07 he gets nailed for 70 in a 55. Is he exhibiting a complete disregard for the law, or does he think he is above the law, or is it just that what he wants/needs to do at any given moment in time is infinitely more important than everything and everyone around him?

    There is also a photored charge for Faisal Mahmood Gill (same name) of Dumfries, Va (where he used to live) in 2004 in Fairfax County; however, that Gill has a birthdate of 11/11 - must be a popular name in Dumfries. Seems odd, but you never know; it may not be him because there is a birthdate discrepancy or it could be an error. That one was also guilty.

    Well, I wonder if THIS pattern of “failure to comply with law” is important for the common voting public to know….and if it will be exposed before the convention. Seems to me that it is and that it should be. Nice research, anon.

    I’m not perfect, would never even pretend to be, but I haven’t received a moving traffic violation since I was in college, some 40 years ago. The only significance to that is; people who TRY to comply, generally don’t get nabbed…and yes, it could happen to me, or even you today. However, for those who don’t care or don’t even pay attention, it’s far more likely to end up in traffic court.

    Hmmmmmm, I wonder if he will be riding as a passenger, vice driver soon — with that kind of a record, one would think so….

    Great work, anon!

    The following charge is interesting.

    Defendant: GILL, FAISAL MAHMOOD Sex: Male Race: White Caucasian (Non-Hispanic)
    Charge: SPD 43/25/AV Code Section: B.46.2-870 Case Type: Infraction
    Offense Date: 05/27/01
    01 07/13/01 Finalized

    Delegate wannabe Gill, while working as the chief lobbyist for the terrorist-led American Muslim Council, received a ticket on 5/27/01. Perhaps Gill was late for a meeting with AMC founder and leader Abdurahman Alamoudi. Alamoudi is now serving a 23-year sentence for laundering Libyan money, some fungible part of which ended up in Gill’s pocket.

    American Muslim Council chief lobbyist Gill, demonstrating contempt for the laws of Virginia, did not pay the fine in advance and did not show up for trial on 7/13/01. Gill was found guilty in absentia with the fine still unpaid.

    Finally, two weeks later on 7/30/01 Gill got around to paying. The above kind of behavior normally results in a suspended licence until the fine is paid. It could be, however, that there was a grace period after conviction before Gill’s license would have been suspended.

    Was Gill not driving in the last two weeks of July 2001? Was he driving, but on a suspended license?

    If I were Jeff Dion I would be praying that the Republicans are stupid enough to nominate Gill. It would serve Lingamfelter, Stewart, Cuccinelli and Bolling right if as a result of their enabling Gill the Dems took the seat and filled it with a (gasp!) homosexual.

    One way to get out of a ticket is keep postponing hearings. If the charging officer gets tired of showing up to court only to be told the hearing is cancelled the officer may not show up any more for that case.

    Then when Gill shows up the third time and officer doesn’t Gill can win by default. You can also win by default if the officer shows up, but has thrown away his original paper work in the case. Officers get tired of keeping all the paper work from old cases.

    I got lucky myself one time. The officer showed up, but didn’t have the paper work so I was found not guilty on a traffic ticket for lack of evidence. I was very surprised and the officer looked like an idiot before the judge.

    I note that his reckless charge has been postponed and that he has an attorney. That made we wonder about the legal implications of having so many tickets. I don’t know all about points and suspensions in Virginia, because, thank goodness, I’ve never gotten a ticket (knock on wood here).

    Wouldn’t he have a lot of points on his license by now? Could he be looking at suspension if found guilty? I really have no idea, but if someone does know for a fact, could you let us know how points, suspensions, etc. are calculated.

    With these traffic violations alone, THAT would cause him to have to report to his Security Officer IF he held a Security Clearance.

    Except for his ties to Islamic Extremists, numerous violations of the traffic law, alleged Hatch Act violation, alleged UCMJ violation, inability to lead an organization, and who knows WHAT else…he REALLY IS a nice guy - lol.

    Bill Bolling and all other elected officials who continue to support him…this will NOT be forgotten. It doen’t take $15k to get ME to realize wrong man for the job.

    “One way to get out of a ticket is keep postponing hearings. If the charging officer gets tired of showing up to court only to be told the hearing is cancelled the officer may not show up any more for that case.”

    That won’t work because officers don’t show up to court for one case–they show up to court for a bunch of cases. So Gill’s case will be one of many that the officer is there for.

    “Wouldn’t he have a lot of points on his license by now? Could he be looking at suspension if found guilty?”

    With a reckless driving charge, it is up to the judge’s discrection as to the fine, whether you’re getting jail time (keep it under 90, folks) or whether your license will be suspended.

    “”"this will NOT be forgotten. “”"

    It won’t be enough to defeat Gill in June or November. Someone must teach Cuccinelli, Bolling, Lingamfelter and/or Stewart a much-needed lesson about the need for integrity in public office.

    Otherwise the next erratically-driving former chief lobbyist for the terrorist-led American Muslim Council will come along, and Cuccinelli et al will sell out to him as they sold out to Gill.

    $15K in Gill-influenced Safa Group donations to Cuccinelli, and then he compounds the error by endorsing Gill. The poster above is right. This will not be forgotten.

    Gill has about as much chance at getting elected as he does being hired as Jim Corzine’s new driver.

    The test of integrity/honesty is obeying the law when no one is looking. I wonder if Jim Young passes that test based on some of his comments above.

    Batson, I’m not sure….there are a lot of people out there who see his flyers, like that uniform and read endoresements by Lt Gov Bolling, woopee; PWCBOCS Chairman, Corey Stewart; State Senator Cuccinelli; and “Superstar” Delegate Liegumenfalter and look no further — I can hear ‘em now, “If all those elected officials like him, he MUST be a great guy and a great American.” Oh, not to mention the gutless “neutrals,” who despite all the scoop on him, they just can’t seem to make up their minds.

    I’m with you, Jonathan!! If our elected officials aren’t smart enough to find out this guy’s past…OR…. if they don’t have the integrity, knowing his past, to speak up for what is right, they don’t deserve to be in office any more than he does.

    If anyone wants to provide me with a copy of the Gill flyer which mentions Cuccinelli please email a scanned version of it to jonathansamuel@yahoo.com or snail mail it to me at 7055 Chesley Search Way, Kingstowne, VA 22315.

    Just so you know, I want to use the flyer on a pro-gun-control, pro-abortion rights, anti-Ken Cuccinelli website called goodbyeken.com . I hope that I can grow the site to where it can have a marginal impact in Cuccinelli’s district, part of which is a few miles from my home.

    I wonder how may tickets Julie Lucas has had?

    I wonder how many tickets those savaging Faisal here have had?

    I wonder why Greg and anon on 19 Apr 2007 at 8:34 pm have not let us in on that little secret.

    Maybe the answer is none.

    Or maybe the answer is that none of those who support Faisal are so consumed with hatred of Julie that they feel the need to smear her as Faisal’s enemies are smearing him.

    Afraid of a few facts, Jim?

    Would you like to know if Julie Lucas routinely breaks the law?

    Look it up. You were given the links.

    I know the answer to how many tickets she has ….

    I looked up it.

    It is so pathetic that someone posting 100% true facts regarding a person is now “smearing”. In fact, you sound remarkably like a whining democrat.
