Exposing The Duck & Weave

By Greg L | 25 July 2007 | 29th VA Senate | 58 Comments

Bob Fitzsimmonds, who is the Republican nominee challenging Chuck Colgan in the 29th Senate District, has this to lay on his opponent:


Though the budget is of vital importance, Immigration is what I hear most at the doors. I continue to get a positive response from voters about my immigration plan. My opponent’s website originally claimed that illegal immigration is a federal problem and proposed no action plan. He has since even removed this statement and his website is currently silent on the issue. Having voted to provide benefits to illegal aliens, it is no wonder that he is choosing to remain silent now.

That’s going to play pretty well with voters this election season.  Are the hopes of Democrats to take the senate going to run into the wall of public outrage over the Senate’s refusal to address the illegal alien issue, and might the steadfast refusal by the Democratic leadership to even consider statewide participation in the Section 287(g) Program hamstring their candidates?

It might happen.  If Democrats don’t get on board, their chances to take the Senate in November could be in serious trouble.

    It’s time for change around here. Bob Fitzsimmons is the man to do that. Bob is very aware of the changes in our area, and the need for action on illegal immigration. He’s yet another fine and upstanding citizen that once upon atime lived here in West Gate along with many others in power during decades gone by.
    There was once a time when West Gate and Sudley were home to members of the PWCBOS, PWCPS, and yes our most senior state Senator(all at the same time). Their children all attended public schools with myself and neighbors. We must have elected officials ready and willing to act on the will of the people(legal), and help get the “red carpet” for illegals rolled up.

    Fitzsimmons, a massively obese individual, was at 3/31/07 campaign kickoff rally for Faisal Gill. You can see Fitzsimmons bloviating at the rally in support of his illegal immigration law firm partner, Faisal Gill, here:


    As if Gill will vote to cause Gill and Gallinger’s clients to be deported! And, behind closed doors, I doubt that Fitzsimmons will vote to deport Gill’s clients either. Fitzsimmons has already shown that illegal immigration advocates (literally) like Gill can get to Fitzsimmons, and his make believe stance is just for the purpose of getting elected.

    Why did Fitzsimmons campaign for the Gill and Gallinger illegal immigration law firm partner Faisal Gill?

    I mistakenly implied that Fitzsimmons is a partner in the illegal immigration law firm of Gill and Gallinger. He is not.

    You can read about the services which Gill and Gallinger offers to illegal immigrants, include last-minute asylum requests for those about to be deported, here:


    You might think that Gill would remove the worst parts of the law firm’s advertising soliciting illegal immigrants for clients. But Gill doesn’t think he has to. Gill thinks the public is too stupid to read about what Gill and Gallinger does about illegal immigration.

    And truly, some are stupid. Perhaps the Gill-endorser Fitzsimmons is one of them. But I think that Fitzsimmons knows full well that Gill is a partner in an illegal immigration law firm. He doesn’t care.

    There is the prattle about illegal immigration for the voters, and then there is what Fitzsimmons would actually do about the problem. Based upon Fitzsimmons alliance with and support for Gill the answer is n..o..t..h..i..n..g.

    Fitz is the most conservative candidate running for Senate, and as such, deserves the support of conservatives. While I wished he hadn’t chosen to support Chapman in the past, and Gill currently, I will still vote for him. The alternative is to vote for Colgan, and I just can’t bring myself to do it.

    Someone had asked about the ID cards being given out in New Haven, CT. I just received the following info - some of you may be interested in reading below and also watching FOX news between 11-12 today.

    America First 2008

    I am scheduled to appear on the ED Hill news program on Fox Cable between 11am and noon. I will be talking about the New Haven ID card.

    Beyond clearly violating Immigration Law, the mayor of New Haven also seems to have a personal finanical stake in this ID Card. Many thanks to Southern Connecticut Citizens for Immigration Control for digging up the facts on this outrage. http://www.SCTIR.com/

    Here is a synopsis of the true origins and purpose of the ID Card. As they say in politics when something is wrong, “follow the money trail.”

    1. When the New Haven Savings Bank wanted to convert from a privately owned bank to a publicly owned bank, Mayor DeStefano and the city administration put the squeeze on them. The New Haven Bank then made a $25 million “contribution” to benefit the residents of the city of New Haven. This money was paid the First City Corporation. Mayor John DeStefano and others were the directors of the First City Corporation.
    2. The First City Corporation then planned to start a First City Bank that would serve the low income “immigrant” community, meaning illegal aliens.
    3. The First City Corporation gave the City of New Haven, some $250,000 to fund the New Haven ID card for illegal aliens. One of the stated purposes of ID Card was to encourage card holders to use banking services. This, in effect, would produce a list of potential clients for the First City Bank.
    Thus, funds that were to be used for the residents of New Haven were diverted to the creation and promotion of the New Haven ID card. While the proposed First City Bank was to be a non-profit bank, this does not mean that directors, officers and employees of the bank could not be paid.
    The ID Card offers few benefits to illegal aliens and exposes them to the risk of exposure, if there is a Freedom of Information Act request for the list of names. Illegal aliens can manufacture plenty of false ID for all types of purpose. Because of a loophole in the banking act. an illegal alien can open a bank account with an EIN number from the IRS. The ID card, in reality, served little purpose for the illegals. But could be used as a marketing tool for the new First City Bank.
    This brings into question whether the use of the $25 million to start a bank with funds that were designated for the residents of New Haven could not be considered a misappropriation of funds and thus a violation of state laws. The Mayor’s being on the board of directors would appear to be a direct conflict of interest and his promotion of the ID card simply compounds that.

    The best news is the terrific efforts of the Southern CT Citizens for Immigration Control has done. They have organized protests, written letters and most importantly investigated the money trail of this outrage. They will have given second thoughts to any other city that considers this.

    Further, it is not over. If we get a President in 2008 who will enforce the immigration laws, the New Haven mayor and his confederates could be facing fines and prison terms.

    Congratulations to all.

    Paul Streitz

    Fitzsimmons has shown horrible judgement by the company he keeps and anyone who has worked closely with him says he’s IMPOSSIBLE to deal with on any level. These are not qualities for someone to legislate effectively.

    And by the way, he did nothing at the General Assembly while he was there but bump into walls thinking he was the elected member and not a staffer whose primary job was to answer the phone and draft correspondence.

    Republicans for Colgan!

    I saw the letter this morning. Thanks for the props. The only thing I neglected to add was that the ridiculous point of the original letter to which I was responding was referring to Greg, a resident of 20109, and anyone else who doesn’t reside in 20110 as an outsider who should have no input where Manassas City Council activities are concerned. Hopefully that was implied.

    I’ve voted for Chuck Colgan, in the past. I just can’t do it this time around. We need change. Chuck, knows how bad it is here in West Gate, yet nothing has been done that I know of regarding illegal immigration. Heck, one of the worst looking houses around here is the one he and Agnes raised their kids in. There are stilling a few original owners here, and they don’t think they’ll be voting for Chuck either. Looks like this is just a vote, that you have to make on issues. I really don’t think Chuck is going to act on our behalf regarding illegals. Chuck is going to be a “newlywed” here in a few weeks.
    Thank you, for setting Mr. Settle straight. He’s letter was outragous to me as 20109 lifelong resident, formerly 22110 the same as the city. There are parts of Manassas in PWC, that have 20110. I think Mr. Settle could use a history lesson or two on PWC, MC & MP.

    Do you really believe that FitzSimmonds is to be trusted Batson? As I recall, the first we heard anything about his stand on the illegal alien issue was when one of the regular commenters on the issue (I believe it was either Patty or Redawn) approached him and his response to her was, “Why don’t you move.” He’s just jumping on the bandwagon now.

    You can bet that all Fitzsimmonds is doing is Jumping on the Band Wagon.
    He will put up a good front and then put that knife in real hard in ones back when he gets the chance.

    Perhaps it is time for a change but we need someone more responsible than Fitzsimmonds .

    He has been a major player in ruining the local Republican Committee. He also is very good at choosing his friends.Friends that will think as he does and
    step on everyone that gets their way.

    These little quirky remarks (Why don.t you move) is typical of the attitude displayed by Fitzsimmonds. People will remember how they were treated.

    Walter Tejada a ‘criminal enabler’
    Washington Times 7/25/07

    Walter Tejada, vice chairman of the Arlington County Board, was quoted in a story on July 13 regarding the resolution on illegal aliens that was passed unanimously by the Prince William Board of County Supervisors (”County’s alien crackdown may spread to other areas,” Metropolitan):

    “‘A vocal, angry minority in their locality has manipulated the system to convince the political leaders to enact a very punitive, anti-immigrant resolution,’ said. ‘We now see in Prince William County an example of government-sanctioned xenophobia. If anger and divisiveness is what they intended to achieve, they have succeeded.’”

    Criminal enablers like Mr. Tejada misuse the term “immigrant” to remove any notion of illegality. He uses the term to place these lawbreakers on par with those who came to this country legally, just like himself, with a firm desire to assimilate, learn English and become part of the fabric of this great republic. Mr. Tejada and his leftist comrades on the board believe they can dupe the legal citizenry with their faux use of the term immigrant, basically dishonoring the term in order to divide the community even more.

    The term “undocumented” didn’t work; now misusing a term that instills a sense of honor on those who earned the right to immigrate legally is core to the current malfeasance under way on the Arlington County Board.

    Mr. Tejada knows that the malcontents who comprise the radical open-border illegal-alien-protection groups that he supports cannot compete with grass-roots groups like Help Save Manassas.

    Fitz Simmons may be just jumping on the bus, but at least he’s finally getting on board. I tried kicking him in his ass (couldn’t miss) several times to take a stand prior to the July 10 resolution, but he did not until he realized if he didn’t get on the bus, he might get run over. Anyway, he’s still better than Colgan, who was in a position to do something about the problem and did not. Let’s elect Fitz, but let’s not let him forget that it was a dump Colgan movement that got him in, and a dump Fitz movement could get him out.

    Why don’t you people leave your name? Mr. Colgan attepted to change the definition of family in the past He was shot down. The family clause in the virginia state code allows the crowding we have to deal with . Mr, Fitzsimmoons buddies in south side are in bed with the developers who want a place for the 11 dollar an hour drywall man to live. Kill the definition and the problem will become enforceable!!! What is the legal definition of family or household member?

    According to Section 16.1-228 of the Code of Virginia, “Family or household member” means (i) the person’s spouse, whether or not he or she resides in the same home with the person, (ii) the person’s former spouse, whether or not he or she resides in the same home with the person, (iii) the person’s parents, stepparents, children, stepchildren, brothers, sisters, half-brothers, half-sisters, grandparents and grandchildren, regardless of whether such persons reside in the same home with the person, (iv) the person’s mother-in-law, father-in-law, sons-in-law, daughters-in-law, brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law who reside in the same home with the person, (v) any individual who has a child in common with the person, whether or not the person and that individual have been married or have resided together at any time, or (vi) any individual who cohabits or who, within the previous 12 months, cohabited with the person, and any children of either of them then residing in the same home with the person.

    We all can do basic math here right?

    FitzSimmonds has been distributing a brochure with a stance on illegal immigration since at least April so the johnny come lately idea ain’t true. Also Bob was handing out a flier on immigration (indicating his support for John’s plan among other policies) at the July 10 meeting so he certainly had a position on that prior to the vote too.

    FitzSimmonds has been on board for a while but even if he was just jumping on, these critics are essentially saying “He is only doing this because the people want it! Senator Colgan doesn’t care and he isn’t doing anything. YAY Senator Colgan!!!”

    FitzSimmonds is clearly trying to find solutions on this issue. That is why he is endorsed by both Del. Miller and Supervisor Stirrup. It seems most of his critics would rather cite hearsay or personal issues than actually address the issues.

    It was posted by batson that “I don’t trust him but I can’t vote for Colgan” - ok, then why vote for Fitz, someone you admitedly do not trust? This looks like an example on why you (read, “anybody”) should not vote for ANYBODY that you do not trust - kind of like Faisal Gill or Tom Kopko.

    I think Batson is INCORRECT, but I think his point was that he doesn’t trust FitzSimmonds on his own but he trusts FitzSimmonds will be more responsive to public pressure while Senator Colgan has been indifferent.

    My point was FitzSimmonds is right on this issue because it is what he believes. Other leaders recognize this and support him. Even if he didn’t though he is still on the right side of this issue. Senator Colgan is aware of the public’s position (one would hope) and doesn’t care.

    Again, FitzSimmonds is trying to find solutions while his opponent says nothing and his opponent’s allies cite hearsay and personal issues rather than the issue.

    1146: I hear you…really, I do. The problem with “Johnny come lately’s” is that their passion about the topic won’t be that intense so that if someone makes a convincing enough argument the OTHER way, they are likely to change their mind yet again. HOPEFULLY that won’t be the case, but let’s face it, illegal immigration is NOT NEW. This is one of those things that you don’t just have a “come to Jesus” moment and wake up one day and decide, “You know what? I think I am against it.”

    When it comes to THIS election, sadly, I would say to sit it out and wait until the NEXT election to get someone who HAS the “fire in the belly” and is passionate about what they do and what they believe in. Someone with strong convictions and beliefs. We had all those years of Clinton where he ruled by Polls…do we really want that with Fitz???

    Since I’m not in the Colgan/Fitzsimmonds district and therefore can vote for neither of them, perhaps I should stay quiet. However, having seen the grinning Fitzsimmonds at Gill’s kick-off and knowing that he supports Gill, despite Gill’s association with bad characters, misuse of the Navy Reserve uniform and blatant disregard for traffic laws, Bob Fitzsimmonds should be taught a lesson…and it shouldn’t be in politics.

    I have finally figured out the “why” behind so many elected officials supporting Faisal Gill — and you all know who they are. For a while, I thought it was simply Gill’s money…as Bill Bolling said, “…he was there for me ($14K) and I’m here for him now…” but that’s only a part of it. What’s more important than campaign contribution?? Votes…and if you’re running for office, guess what ya get for supporting Faisal Gill? You guessed it, a huge “block vote.” Isn’t the underbelly of politics wonderful? :(

    People please, think about the candidate and that candidates experience.

    I vote rebublican most of the time, but I always consider the candidate first.

    Just look at the resume of each individual ;

    Colgan - unfortunately a democrat, but probably the most conservative democrat in the senate.
    War veteran.
    Businessman who built one of the most successful businesses in Manassas. You cant beat his credentials on the business issues facing Virginia.
    Active in many of our most important civic groups including the Knights of Columbus, and the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
    Finally (not that it should matter, but it simply does) the most senior senator in the Virginia Senate.

    I dont always agree with him but simply put - A GREAT MAN.

    Then you have Bob Fitzsimmonds. No resume to speak of outside of conservative (which I do like) political activism.

    No military service (that I have ever heard).
    No real business experience (again, that I have ever really heard. If he did I would think he would have it on his literature or his website).
    Poor decision making - strongly backing Gill over the much more electable Lucas. Also backing horribly defective candidate Steve Chapman over Jackson Miller.

    In the past I never heard Fitzsimmonds talk about illegal immigration. If he did I think he would have backed Lucas or Miller. He has always been the anti-tax/anti-abortion candidate only. I must agree with the earlier post - a Johnny-come-lately.

    Yes, Senator Colgan one of the most conservative Democrats in the Senate. A quick review of what you get with that:

    -Benefits for illegal aliens
    -A proposed $3 hourly increase in the minimum wage
    -A proposed 15 cents gasoline tax increase
    -A vote for a pro-choice majority leader and chair of Education and Health

    Senator Colgan is a nice man with bad policies. I didn’t notice anyone saying Senator Colgan is not a nice man.

    I did notice that again Senator Colgan’s allies have failed to point to anything he is proposing to do about illegal aliens though.

You guys living in gated piedmont can go to hell. How would you like your child going to the toilet in a trailor. Ther are 16 yes over 16 classroom trailors at westgate elementary. The school budget shows the school at 90% capacity . Guess what they are counting the trailors!!!!!!!!!!!Q The developers are in kahotz with the board in allocating funds for american born children. They go by what the builders propose to build, not what the birth rates are. I believe this is a form of blatent racism and classism. And they bitched because brentsville was going to get a few trailors for a highschool.

    Although your uninformed personal criticism is appreciated, could you also add comment on Senator Colgan’s proposals regarding illegal aliens?

    Not to mention the NUMBER of trailers @ Yorkshire Elem. They had to tear up the playground for them too. Sickening.

    Medical transcription? That work has gone to India and Pakistan. In India a medical transcriptionist is typically a university graduate and works for a fraction of the cost of an American worker.

    Is Fitzsimmons outsourcing? Does his transcription business even exist? If so how does he compete with outsourcers.

    Like thirty-something, small law firm partner, four-kids Faisal Gill’s $13,600 donation to Bolling, there is a lot of question as to how Gill and his supporters are making money. No one knows who Gill’s clients are. It would be easy for someone who wanted to do so to pass Gill money in the form of unspecified legal fees.

    They tore up the playground at Pennington School as well to put in trailers.

    From the tone of BVBL contributors, Mr Fitzsimmonds had best hope he has support of a whole lot of voters from somewhere else….Karachi, perhaps?

    Did anyone read what FitzSimmonds “immigration policy” says? Virtually nothing. I think some of you folks would vote for a three-legged porcupine if it called itself an “anti-illegal immigration” candidate and blew a few buzzwords in your ears.
