Manassas City residents will be really pleased to learn that Senator Mark Warner has asked for $100,000 in taxpayer money to be given to H.O.M.E of Richmond, the outfit that litigated against Manassas City resulting in a settlement that severely challenged the city’s budget during difficult economic times. While Senator Warner lavishes your taxpayer dollars upon these organizations, they use those funds to promote ridiculous lawsuits against municipalities in Virginia that have to be defended with, of course, more of your taxpayer dollars. How nice.
Instead of doing something, anything, to reign in these irresponsible organizations that seek to blackmail municipalities into providing them with financial support, Senator Warner actively seeks to subsidize them. Those who have suffered from this sort of abuse should be furious with Warner, who once again shows that the Warner we get as an elected official is a lot different than the Warner we saw on the campaign trail, touting how “moderate” he was.
