Steve Shannon Had To Pay People To Watch Him

By Greg L | 24 October 2009 | Virginia Politics | 14 Comments

Isn’t it kind of sad when a campaign has to pay people to attend their campaign events and wear their campaign stickers, but they can’t manage to pay them emough to stay there for the whole event? Maybe next time Steve Shannon will pick someone else other than a bunch of union members from Arlington to prop him up.

    What’s even more sad is that this was doubtless funded by union forced dues. Hence, Republican/Conservative union members subsidized Shannon’s show of “support.” I wonder if they were even Virginia voters?

    Nothing new here. The “progressives” have been paying people for years to attend their seances and also to walk the neighborhoods distirbuting their tissue paper.

    Ken Cucinelli better become very vocal on his plans to eliminate sanctuary cities in VA for illegal aliens.

    While in Hampton, Virginia, last week I turned on the TV and saw our sheriff, Glendell Hill, in the limelight, hamming it up in a commercial for Ken Cuccinelli. In the commercial, Sheriff Hill says, he (Ken Cuccinelli) will help them (law enforcement officers) with crime, drug dealers and gangs. Couldn’t Ken find a more credible sheriff to do this commercial? Sheriff Glendell Hill couldn’t care less about crime, drug dealers or gangs. What has he done about these problems in Prince William County?

    What’s funny is that sometimes unions hire people to picket for them. A lot of the drum beating, marching, union folk seen downtown are actually hired hands, sometimes homeless hired hands who will march for the promise of a few bucks and a sandwich.

    I am not anti-union in the least, but I have to wonder how many of the guys in the orange shirts might be hired stand-ins.

    Funny….but the over generalization that all Union members are lazy and only work “office hours” is childish and this site is usually above that….

    You’re the one making that generalization. All I noted was that right in the middle of the debate, every single one of them got up and left. If you think all union labor is like that, mabye you have more experience with it than I.

    Looks like a two-for from here. Both organized labor and the Hispanic community. As Steve Shannon fails to make the illegal or legal immigration topic an issue of his campaign we can only assume he is satisfied with the status quo.

    One other note of interest is that while he has on his web page a multi page down load covering his solutions to the gang problem in Virginia, he fails to address the illegal immigration contribution to the problem or the benefits of combating illegal immigration would have on the gang problem.

    Perhaps a pre Election Day ace- in- the- hole would be a public salute to La Raza ala Gov. Tim Kaine?

    I sat near all these union folks and noticed that when the Pledge of Alliegance was said ONLY ONE of them recited it along with us. Real patriots, all of them!
