Tonight Democrat John Bell, who is seeking to defeat Delegate Bob Marshall in the 13th District, is out at “Freddie’s Beach Bar and Restaurant” all the way down in Arlington with the Virginia Partisans Gay and Lesbian Club trying to raise campaign cash. Not only is this several districts away from where Bell is mounting his campaign to overturn the Marriage Amendment and replace Marshall, but the place is a well-known gay bar. I imagine many of his would-be constituents would be absolutely appalled.
AOL’s yellow pages has this review on the place:
Karaoke is the focus here four nights a week, and performers can descend the winding staircase from the stage or lounge on the baby grand piano as they belt out ‘I Will Survive.’ Sunday evenings are reserved for the Freddie’s Follies Drag Show, featuring Destiny B. Childs and a rotating cast of characters. Freddie’s is the only gay bar in Northern Virginia, but Lutz says his space is straight-friendly too. With daily dining specials like the champagne brunch buffet and entertainment seven nights a week, you’ll be glad you found a beach in NoVa.
How fabulous. Northern Virginia’s only “gay bar.” What a place for a campaign event.
The site of such cultural highlights as “drag bingo”, “Miss Freddies (Transsexual) Pageant”, and the “Arlington Gay & Lesbian Alliance Happy Hour”, this Arlington establishment celebrates values that are just about as opposed as humanly possible to those of the 13th District. For John Bell to think this is an appropriate place for his campaign events demonstrates a tremendous disconnect between himself and the voters of this district that aspires to world record. Given that voter registration information shows Bell only became registered to vote in the district in 2007, perhaps it’s simply a case of a homosexual activist not really knowing anything about the district he’s running in.
What is it with Democrats handing over the selection of all their candidates in this district to the Virginia Partisans Gay & Lesbian Club? Every time they run a nut against Marshall, and every time they lose big-time.
