I guess the powers-at-be in Manassas Park are pretty concerned about Brian Leeper winning a spot on the Manassas Park Governing Board after his endorsement by the News & Messenger, otherwise they wouldn’t have kicked him out of the Fall Festival today. While other candidates were present and campaigning, Leeper was told that he couldn’t. When he complained, they told him he had to leave. Too bad he didn’t call their bluff on this and force the public official that pulled this garbage to tell the police to have him arrested. That would have been quite a story.
This is a powerful demonstration of precisely why the Manassas Park Governing Board would be vastly improved by having a few potentially dissenting voices present. If about a week out from an election Manassas Park will try to prevent selected candidates for office from campaigning at public events, there’s hardly any limit to the kinds of shenanigans of dubious legality they’ll be willing to engage in. If Leeper is viewed as a potential threat to this state of affairs, it’s all the more reason to ensure that he is elected.
Throw the bums out, and vote Ham Sandwich for Mayor.
