Jeanette Rishell Caught In A Lie, Again

By Greg L | 6 September 2009 | Jeanette Rishell, 50th HOD District | 9 Comments

The Manassas News & Messenger’s editorial today points out that just like last year, when the campaign of Jeanette Rishell couldn’t tell the truth to voters about Delegate Jackson Miller’s voting record, she’s not being honest about his campaign this year.  For someone who proclaims to be standing up for Virginia families, you’d think that she could at least start with being honest.

We would say that its irresponsible for Rishell to make public allegations before verifying the facts carefully, but the truth is that doing so only hurts her campaign.

Miller can easily expose the falsity of poorly vetted allegations against him, so his reputation isn’t harmed; however, Rishell’s image is sullied each time.

Jeanette Rishell seems uniquely adept at self-inflicting mortal head wounds to her campaign, and she’s eclipsing quite a competitive field.  It seems sometimes like every Democrat running for office this cycle is making positively dumb errors these days.  Ken Cuccinelli calls for a special session of the General Assembly to deal with a problem, Steve Shannon smears it as a “political stunt,” and DNC Chairman Tim Kaine sides not with his party compatriot, but with Republican Ken Cuccinelli.  Jody Wagner makes budget mistake after mistake during her tenure in the Kaine administration, amounting to hundreds of millions of dollars, and then somehoe thinks she can credibly run for Lieutenant Governor against Bill Bolling.  And Creigh Deeds relegates himself to a “me too” campaign as Bob McDonnell continues to issue inspiring leadership idea after inspiring leadership idea that he can’t answer.  It’s positively comedic. 

And that’s just the big races.  In the House of Delegates you’ve got Chuck Caputo saying all felons are Democrats, and Luke Torian wheeling around in an expensive Hummer at the same time he preaches to his congregation about materialism.  These heights of utter stupidity are difficult to surmount, but Jeanette Rishell not only does so with prodigious frequency, but in a way that makes all others utterly pale in the level of creativity they can exhibit.  What Democrat would ever imagine trying to use a campaign operative to undermine the non-partisan status of the NAACP?  Why not just throw molotov cocktails into the windows of the NAACP headquarters and then put your opponent’s yard signs in front of the firestorm as you wait for the fire department?  This throwing of the NAACP under the bus here for political gain is pretty much equivalent, and thoroughly disgusting.

That’s not all.  Jeanette Rishell herself has had to decline debates in the past because of scheduling issues, despite that she’s campaigning full time and can’t legitimately claim a job conflict.  Sometimes she’s even suggested it’s better that Delegate Paul Nichols stand in for her, because he would be better suited to speak to the issues.  Miller never raised a fuss about those, ever.  Here’s Jackson Miller, who is serving as a police officer and actually working for a living, so when he has a the first scheduling problem of their perennial campaign face-offs Jeanette Rishell starts issuing press releases about how Jackson Miller is somehow refusing to debate her, which aren’t true?  How utterly ridiculous can you get?

It’s deja vu all over again, folks.  Jeanette Rishell can’t tell the truth, and once again it’s so bad that even the News & Messenger is calling her out on it.  I’ll bet voters in the 50th District are getting awfully tired of this, as well they should.

    And, as you have posted in the recent past, Rishell and Caputo were taking advice from Ben Tribbett. Is correlation causation here? You decide!

    Interesting headline. It would probably be more newsworthy if it could read “Jeanette Rishell Stumbles Unwittingly Into the Truth.”

    Jackson Miller is a very good candidate running in a norrnally
    Republican district in what appears to be a Republican year in
    Virginia. Guess Jeanette and pals thought they needed to
    shake things up so she shot her self in the foot - again.
    How did that work out, Jeanette?
    Many of us would have liked an issue oriented campaign
    worthy of our community. I saw Jackson and his fine family
    at the OHS football game Friday night and he is more
    than ready to defend his record and share his views on the
    future direction of Virginia.
    We are fortunate to have him representing us in Richmond.

    Jackson Miller is a rising star in the State GOP. He has increased his vote margin, has stuck by what he has campaigned on. He keeps in touch with his constitutes through telephone conference calls and newsletters. Another team as a Delegate, and he should be ready to move onto the State Senate.

    Then we have Jeanette, who can’t seem to tell the truth, has run horrible campaigns, and seems to not have any good ideas to run on.

    I agree COM. Jackson Miller has a very bright future and
    he has earned it.

    What is funny about this is Jeanette was trying to use the media and blogs to do her dirty work, as the general public doesn’t receive press releases, and this very same media is calling her out on the lie. I’ll bet this comes out in a mailer too.

    Another thing I’d be willing to bet on is that she has polled and didn’t like the numbers. Also, she doesn’t like the responses she’s getting when knocking those doors. To do something like this smacks of desperation.

    Doing something over and over again and expecting a different result - didn’t someone identify that behavior as some kind of mental disorder?
