Sharon Pandak gets some face-time in front of a documentary crew complaining about the rule of law resolution that unanimously passed the Board of County Supervisors and which was implemented in two phases, again with unanimous votes of both Republicans and Democrats. She wouldn’t have dealt with the illegal alien issue this way, she says, although she offers no details about what her supposed more responsible approach would have been. As far as anyone can tell, her response would have been to do nothing other than to oppose the rule of law resolution. That’s a real winner of a campaign issue.
What’s really funny about this is that she recognizes that this issue definitely increases the level of participation by the electorate in local government policy, but bemoans it. That sounds a lot like sour grapes, as Sharon Pandak certainly hasn’t found any way to energize voters to support her lackluster campaign. While anger over what has happened to our community as a result of the huge numbers of illegal aliens that have unlawfully taken up residence makes a great motivator for voters, she seems to think that Corey Stewart manufactured this anger. Boy, is she out of touch with the reality on the ground in Prince William County. Corey Stewart responded to citizen outrage on this issue, listened to the electorate, and made it his business to address the problem. If Pandak doesn’t get this, she is completely incompetent as a candidate.
Pandak whines about how alternatives to the rule of law resolution weren’t ever considered. Well, what alternative approach has Sharon Pandak offered? What alternative has anyone offered? The only “alternative” that Pandak and her allies have ponied up is to rescind the rule of law resolution, which is the same legislative goal as Mexicans Without Borders. For a campaign strategy, this is just plain stupid. Not only does it oppose what fellow Democrats have done on the Board of County Supervisors, it places her squarely in the crosshairs of an electorate fed up with policies of official neglect towards the illegal alien problem and identifies her as the lead illegal alien apologist candidate in the county.
Pandak is going to be crushed on November 6th.
UPDATE: Riley has the scoop on the owner of a site being used as an informal day laborer hiring site who has put up a big Pandak sign. How can she possibly think that carrying water for Mexicans Without Borders is going to get her elected?
