WMAL has a fascinating report of an exchange between Congressman Gerry Connolly and two Prince William County Supervisors where Congressman Connolly announced that Prince William County was going to have all their federal highway projects cut off after the election. This isn’t too surprising given the past behavior of our local federal “representative,” but that Connolly actually admits he’s going to punish Prince William County for political reasons should he be re-elected to the U. S. House of Representatives is rather shocking.
Covington says he said something to Connolly about the need for federal dollars for infrastructure improvements. Covington says Connolly’s reply was:
“After November 3 we wouldn’t have to worry about any more federal money.”"
At that point there was kind of an awkward silence,” said Covington. “I couldn’t tell whether he was kidding or not. It was kind of a weird moment.”
It kinda bolsters the argument that we better elect Keith Fimian on November 2nd, doesn’t it?
UPDATE: Virtucon is all over this as well.
