RISHELL CAMPAIGN CHAIRMAN GOES TO WAR

26 July 2006 | Prince William County, 50th HOD District | 3 Comments

You would expect the campaign manager for Jeanette “Moonfruit” Rishell to be tightly focused on Jeanette Rishell’s campaign, and rarely speak on other races. But this morning, Matt Harrison decided to go to war against another candidate.
Was it Frank Wolf? No. Was it even a Republican? Not at all. Matt […]

Rishell’s deafening silence

26 July 2006 | 50th HOD District | 6 Comments

Jeanette “Moonfruit” Rishell conducted polls about a week ago testing her message and issue positions with voters in the 50th District. I heard from several people who had received calls, which makes me believe this was a major committment of financial resources by this somewhat underfunded campaign. Often, after poll results come in, you see […]

Caddigan is in?

25 July 2006 | Prince William County | 4 Comments

Virginia Virtucon reports that according to her husband and campaign manager, Maureen Caddigan will not run as an independent for Chairman of the Board of County Supervisors. This is good news, and reflects a pretty solid understanding of recent political history regarding Republicans who decided to make a run as an independent.
Jim Riley writes:
Contrary to […]

Gay “marriage” rally planned in Manassas

25 July 2006 | 50th HOD District | 1 Comment

The nice folks over at “Equality Prince William” have decided to come to Manassas on August 5th at noon in order to have a rally against the marriage amendment. Of course the only downtown location which would agree to hold such a rally would be the Bull Run Unitarian Universalists, and wouldn’t you know […]

No thanks are necessary

25 July 2006 | Humor & Satire, 50th HOD District | Comments Off

The breadth of visitors to Black Velvet Bruce Lee never ceases to amaze me.
I just checked over at the website for Jeanette “Moonfruit” Rishell’s website, and noticed that they’ve updated their press releases with corrected information about the composition of the 50th District. Yesterday Black Velvet Bruce Lee pointed out that while they were […]

Miller’s Transportation Plan

25 July 2006 | 50th HOD District | 9 Comments

In his interview with the Gainesville Times (which Greg discussed below) Jackson Miller outlined a policy position which could get him into trouble. It could also be the best idea any politician in Virginia is discussing this year.
In that interview, Miller raised the issue of utilizing some cutting-edge technology to ease traffic conditions. […]

Potomac News talks about 50th HOD debates

25 July 2006 | 50th HOD District | 11 Comments

The Potomac News actually did a fairly decent job tonight reporting on a proposed debate between Jackson Miller and Jeanette Rishell. Although the article starts off with the fallacy that Miller is responding to a “challenge” from Rishell, it does talk about the candidates stands on several issues, and for that, I’ll give them a […]

RISHELL’S ALTERED STATE

24 July 2006 | 50th HOD District | Comments Off

Jeanette “Moonfruit” Rishell has now put out a press release “challenging” Republican nominee Jackson Miller to a series of debates. I’ve been hearing from the Miller campaign that they’ve been eager to debate Jeanette Rishell for several weeks now, so with both campaigns now committed to the idea of having at least one debate […]

LEFTYBLOG TRASHES RISHELL CAMPAIGN

24 July 2006 | Blogs, 50th HOD District | 3 Comments

Over the weekend the blog Anonymous Is A Woman wrote up a piece entitled “Jeanette Rishell: June Without A Cleaver and Labor Advocate” which provided this little tidbit:
As she ended her speech she said that she had been told that she had to present herself like June Cleaver, the famous 50s TV character who was […]

PWC BOCS RUMBLINGS

24 July 2006 | Prince William County | 7 Comments

As the timeline seems to compress with a fast-track confirmation for Sean Connaughton it seems that the behind the scenes work for potential candidates is going into overdrive. Here’s a roundup of the rumblings, rumors and generally unverifiable details that are flying around the rumorspace. Take all of these with a grain of salt:

RISHELL ENDORSES MINUTEMAN PROJECT

23 July 2006 | 50th HOD District | 2 Comments

Anonymous is a Woman blogged last friday about a talk Jeanette “Moonfruit” Rishell gave to another group not in the 50th District on the subject of Labor. This rather benign looking grandmother had this to say:
“As she ended her speech she said that she had been told that she had to present herself like June […]

VPAP DATA IS POSTED

21 July 2006 | Virginia Politics | Comments Off

The Virginia Public Access Project has posted data on the latest Campaign Finance Disclosures filed for the current reporting period. Although their data lags by a few days the data posted by the Virginia State Board of Elections, it’s a lot easier to access and cross references information in a way that makes it a […]

JACKSON MILLER INTERVIEW

20 July 2006 | 50th HOD District | 9 Comments

The Times Community Newspapers posted an interview with Republican nominee for the 50th District Jackson Miller this evening. In it he discusses being targeted by MS-13, his record on the City Council, transportation issues and illegal immigration.
One thing I didn’t see in this interview was the kind of attacks that Jeanette “Moonfruit” Rishell has been […]

THE ZAPATISTA CONNECTION

It would appear that the Woodbridge Worker’s Committee, which joined with the Bull Run Unitarian Universalist Social Justice Committee to protest overcrowding restrictions in Manassas early this year, is strengthening it’s ties with the radical Zapatista movement in the metropolitan Washington area. The Committee of Indigenous Solidarity/DC Zapatistas is […]

HOW FAR DOES THE RABBIT HOLE GO?

20 July 2006 | 50th HOD District | 10 Comments

You may recall that Jeanette “Moonfruit” Rishell is closely associated with the Virginia Partisans Gay & Lesbian Democratic Club if you’ve been visiting here lately. These folks have contributed to Ms. Rishell’s campaign (they’re her largest non-individual donors, in fact), provided her first endorsement, and hosted her first fundraiser. They seem to be […]

MJM DOESN’T ADD UP: CAMPAIGN FINANCE ARTICLE

20 July 2006 | 50th HOD District | 1 Comment

Well, the local rag finally gets around to covering what has been known for a few days…. Jackson Miller raised more money than Jeanette did in the last reporting period. Nice spin by Jeanette’s campaign to explain why she did not raise as much money as Jackson did. No wonder […]

BOCS RACE CONCERNS

20 July 2006 | Prince William County | 2 Comments

Craig Vitter has been hearing that Sean Connaughton’s confirmation hearings will be scheduled for July 26th. Although I don’t have any independent confirmation of this, a hearing within the next week or so seems consistent with the general behavior of the insiders, who have rescheduled the PWCRC meeting for July to the 31st in order […]

State Board of Elections Loses Forms

19 July 2006 | Humor & Satire, Manassas City | 7 Comments

It appears that the Virginia State Board of Elections has lost the most recent campaign finance disclosure forms for some candidates. While it is not clear how many of these forms have been misplaced, in at least one instance forms from a candidate who must have filed do not appear on the Board’s website.
As you […]
