Jeff Frederick Thumps “Tito The Builder”

By Greg L | 15 July 2011 | 36th VA Senate, Fairfax County, Virginia Senate, Prince William County | 25 Comments

Virtucon was the first out with the news of Jeff Frederick’s stunning campaign finance report for the second quarter, albeit without the analysis this news really deserves.  The implications here go far beyond the 36th District, making a big statement about the 2012 US Senate race and George Allen’s ability to reward political allies and deliver punishment upon those who aren’t.  Right here on George Allen’s doorstep, his political proxy is getting hammered.

If you have been following the blogs that cover state-level politics and seen what Brietbart is up to, you’d think Tito Munoz is a shoo-in for the Republican nomination in the 36th District.  Everyone allied with the political establishment has been pushing the idea that Tito Munoz is the saving grace for Republicans in that he’s Latino, speaks with a heavy Spanish accent, promotes conservative fiscal and economic policies and regularly calls anyone who doesn’t agree with him a socialist.  For the whole crowd that thinks that unless we pander to specific ethnic and racial groups there’s no hope for Republicans in the future, Tito seems like a perfect candidate.  He’s actually quite a likable guy, and while I might not agree with him all the time, I agree he’s quite worthy of consideration as a candidate and a great asset to the Republican Party.

So in weighs George Allen, who doubles down on Tito Munoz with a big endorsement.  Whether that’s because he actually likes Tito, or is fighting with Jeff Frederick I’ll leave for readers to decide, but my gut tells me that this has a lot more to do with Jeff than with Tito.  Frederick has been throwing rocks at establishment Republicans for years, and they’ve hit back, leaving little love lost between the two camps.  I figure if Gerry Connolly was in a matchup against Jeff Frederick, Connolly would get Allen’s support, even if it had to be quite a bit “under the radar.”

What do you expect when you have an establishment candidate (Tito) running against an anti-establishment candidate (Frederick)?  That the establishment candidate is going to utterly crush the other guy in fundraising.  The establishment talks to their donors and suggests they help out their guy, and the wallets open, and before you know it some knucklehead who otherwise would be begging for $20 donations is getting five figure checks.  So when Frederick out-raises Munoz by an order of magnitude, something is seriously amiss in establishment land.  They got their butts handed to them.  Big time.

Tito Munoz raised a paltry (for a Senate race) $11,800 from a total of  38 donors.  Frederick raised about $91K from 184 donors and got another $20K in in-kind donations.  This leaves Frederick with a war chest of over $90K compared to Munoz’ $11K with a primary battle looming in late August.  For a George Allen-backed establishment candidate against the grass-roots anti-establishment candidate, this is awfully lopsided in the wrong direction.

For some strange reason, even if George Allen is telling his donors that Tito is the guy, they’re not giving him money.  Allen pulled in $1.1 million this last quarter, but his guy Tito is swinging in the wind with campaign finances holding only about eleven thousand in his campaign account.  It seems like there’s a huge disconnect happening here.  Where are the establishment bucks?  Or is Allen sucking all the oxygen out of the Munoz campaign so Allen can run for Senate with a big cash advantage?

Whatever the real explanation is here, there’s a repeating pattern at work here that we’ve seen time after time.  The establishment writes off Jeff Frederick and underestimates him.  Jeff doesn’t give a hoot about what they think and works his butt off, and does it smart.  The establishment gets caught with their pants around their ankles and Frederick stuns them with the results of his efforts.  It happens to Democrats, and it happens to Republicans.  When you think Jeff Frederick is an easy mark, he’s going to surprise the heck out of you and you won’t know what just happened after the final buzzer sounds.  You just know you got thumped.

This finance report is just the beginning.  Just watch Jeff Frederick roll over Tito Munoz like a tidal wave while the establishment wonders once again how that could have possibly happened, even though I’m telling them right now.  Then Frederick goes on to deliver the same lesson to Toddy Puller.

I am really looking forward to that.

    While I rarely agree with jeff on anything, he is the ultimate fund raiser in elections, just look at his history in the GA as a member of the HoD.

    My response to you is that obviously the establishment here IS Jeff Frederick, his lobbyists, PACs and party machine supporters! Follow the money trail, that’s all you need to do, case closed!

    Cantor, not known for his support of the Civil Rights act, can’t negotiate with an African American President, the Virginia Republican Party can’t support an ultra-conservative Hispanic-American, then there’s the Party’s immigration history.

    This is an honest observation… I can’t help but suspect that the Republican Party just might be racest… Not a good thing in Northern Virginia with our growing Minority poplatuon. It is a very “white” group. Minorities may not have the “big bucks”, but they still have one vote each.

    This election may not be about the “money”.

    I can’t help but think that liberals are insane for making comments like the one above. Perhaps they ought to talk to Glen Hill about how Republicans are supposedly all a bunch of secret racists.

    For the record, Jeff Frederick’s mother is a Latino immigrant. Maybe he’s still “too white” for your racial quota standards, but the rest of us just don’t care what people look like.

    Listen up, liberals:

    If you’re going to call everyone you disagree with names, you might at least learn how to spell those names correctly.

    It’s spelled “racist”. Not “racest”, “raceist”, “raciest”, or any other way.

    Come on, …said on, give him a break; he was concentrating so heavily upon getting “poplatuon” correct that he just didn’t have time to worry about the ones he knew, like “racest.”

    This election should be about putting the best man or woman in office, not the color of someone’s skin. Glendell Hill is mentioned and brought up because of the color of his skin, not that he does a good job in office.

    When it comes to public safety, the citizens of Prince William expect very little from their county sheriff, and Sheriff Glendell Hill certainly has not exceeded their expectations. However, Sheriff Hill claims he is giving the citizens what they deserve.

    Sheriff Glendell Hill, has overseen an office where it’s members have engaged in activity such as trafficking child porn on the internet from their collection of over 900 pictures, drove drunk and almost killed their wife, ran citizens illegally on the state VICN system, made illegal land deals, and locked down schools for hours because they left the rear window of their patrol car down and the prisoner simply reached out the window and let themselves out causing a manhunt for hours.

    While Sheriff Hill’s deputies were running a muck, Glendell was been busy cutting services to the community, increasing his budget by over 50% and increased his staff by 15 full time employees even though the sheriff’s office does less work today then when he took office.

    For as much as we repeat it doesn’t matter what people look like, it is a fact that the GOP is a very white and homogenous group, and having a diverse slate of candidates both ethnic and cultural will in fact attract that population. When you have a candidate that a voter can identify with and make a connection, you have an advantage. For example: I’m a conservative working mom, and very excitedabout all our school board members running, as many are conservatuveworking moms like me. There is no question that in NoVa having a diverse slate of candidates will appeal to those communities, that is human nature. I think Tito, with his work and outreach to the Hispanic community for the last couple of years will certainly give him an upper hand with Latinos. This election is nit about themoney, and will not be won with lots of money, but the outreach and grassroots activism that Tito has been engaged in not only across Virginia, but nationally with Latino communities in Florida, Texas, Nwvada and California! Virginia will be a battleground state in 2012, and this year’s elections are critical fir next year’s and beyond.

    Oh, yes. Tito will do good job reaching out to non citizens in Nevada to vote for him in Virginia senate district. Maybe even tito will do good job reaching out to non citizens in Virginia by telling them that Sandinistas are taking over general assembly and they need to send him to fight them, and need their money to buy weapons and ammunition for fighting.

    Dang, we haven’t recruited a one-armed African American lesbian with Turret’s Syndrome as a Senate candidate this year, and completely blew our racial and ethnic diversity targets. Crap. Hold on, I think I know a Native American transvestite who converses entirely in Serbo-Croatian we can run as a Republican in the 39th District! Hooray, I’ve saved the day and we’ve properly demonstrated our commitment to tribalism, uh, I mean “diversity.”

    Now maybe there can be a discussion about the qualities of the candidates rather than what racial and ethnic group they might belong to, since I got this “diversity” quota issue resolved.

    You know what?mtgs bigotry and hatred you just spewed as a response to my comments tells me that in fact you are racists. I am as Caucasian and ultra conservative as can be, and find your comments about tokens and quotas offensive. You really don’t get it do you? Caucausians are no longer a majority in many urban areas accross the country, and NoVa will soon have whirtes be a minority. Just look up the numbers and statistics recently published from the census. As far as the illegals comments, are you accusing Tito of being, hiring or promoting illegal inmigration and amnesty? And homosexuality? Get a grip, folks! You sound as if you would want to wipe out of Novas surface all non-Caucasian, not-straight individuals off the Nova population!

    And it is NOT about tokens and quotas, it’s about the character, integrity and values of an individual, not their race, gender or ethnicity. Having said that, I would not vote for a conservative working mom that is a progressive; if I have the choice of 2 candidates that represent my values and one is a white old male, and the other is a young working mom that I look at and say she really knows what it’s like, what I struggle with and my concurs because she is just like me, I would pick her! Now if you think that’s all about tokens and quotas, good luck in finding candidates that will actually be white, Caucasian male Protestants from now on, the population trends are not that way now and will continue to change dramatically in the next 25 years. The 2010 census analysis and numbers show it.

    If Tito is running does that mean the rest of the Jackson Five is running as well?

    The reality is that yes, people are naturally racist. Its in our DNA. Why do you think whites fled Manassas and dumped there home to hispanics and moved to Gainesville/Haymarket? The schools were becomeing dark.

    Homes do not sell well in Minority school districts period!

    Thats a reality folks.

    I dont want my child to go to a school that does not reflect his social upbringing. Who goes to church with whom on Sunday?

    Whites will allways want to place there children in a majority white school system. Real estate reflects that reality.

    Greg acts as if he has social blinders on when confronted with this. If Tito was outside the 7-11 as depicted in Gregs famous photo, whos to know if was here an illegal or not if you did not know him and he was outside a 7-11 speaking spanish?

    I am quite shure there is nothing wrong with who we decide to associate with personally with? Modern racism does exist and to denie that fact is to say you should not be woried when young black youths approach you in south east DC at night asking you for a cigarette.

    Fact of life folks! deal with it.

    I have heard this before. That people naturally have big problems and are by nature very bad. It then becomes duty of state to fix problem and make better society.

    Kruschev called this making “new soviet man” Two decades later we learn new soviet man lives in gulag and works in siberian mine 18 hours every day. He cannot cause problem anymore. Society is fixed.

    mamma grizzlie,

    I have seen your future, and it doesn’t work that way.

    New York City, the great melting pot, went minority-majority in 1990. In the five elections for Mayor since then, the NYC Democrats have tailored their nominees to the populace by choosing two African-Americans (both elected to city-wide office previously), one Hispanic borough president, one female borough president, and one white male. The local GOP, having clearly missed the white-is-bad-marketing memo, went with a white male in every election.

    The score so far: GOP 5, Democrats 0.

    Even now, with the 2013 election on the horizon and the Democrats choosing from among an Asian-American, several women, a couple of Hispanics, and the African-American nominee in 2009, most New Yorkers would vote for a Republican white guy (Ray Kelly) if he chose to run.

    I’m just sayin’

    I shouldn’t even be commenting because this is all so stupid. I’m talking about the comments, not the post. As far as the post…very interesting indeed. My instinct is that the Tito/Allen fundraising is likely nothing more than laziness and taking their “establishmentism” for granted. Remember Occam’s Razor and all that…

    Now these comments…. I read through them and just shook my head. Sometimes - usually - I think people are generally good and generally smart about most common sense issues. I’ve written at length about American exceptionalism. I think freedom brings out all kinds of creativity and street smarts in people.

    Then I see comments like many of those above and I begin to fear for the future of humanity.

    Here’s how it works, folks: It doesn’t matter what color you are. It doesn’t matter what your sexual proclivities are. It doesn’t matter where your mother came from. It doesn’t matter that your father was a polygamist communist (see Obama, Barack).

    None of these things matter.

    What matters is what a person says, does and seeks to do.

    For crying out loud, have you people learned ANYTHING over the past 40 years. (No, I’m not talking to everyone - just the knuckleheads.)

    I think Walter Williams is a brilliant economist. I am supporting not one, but TWO, women in county Supervisor primaries. I think Marco Rubio can brilliantly articulate the conservative position.

    And guess what?

    I don’t give a d*&m what the race, ethnicity or gender of any of these people happens to be.

    Of course, what the h*&l do I know. I’m a white (gasp) Catholic (double gasp) man (triple gasp).

    Actually, you know what? That should preclude me from commenting. I’m inherently a racist.

    Sheesh.

    PS - sorry to rant in the comments, Greg, but good night, there’s some misguided thinking going on here…..

    You can’t get anymore grassroots or tea-party than Tito, Him and Debbie have been putting in the work that has got us to where we are today - a rejuvenated party. They had a “Tea Party” event in their home after the 2008 elections before anyone knew what a tea party was. Tito went to Florida to help Marco Rubio when Crist was certain to win, look what that election has done for the movement. They were a huge part of getting McDonnell-Bolling-Cuccinelli-Anderson in office, all while Jeff Frederick was doing his best to undermine our candidates. He’s a solid conservative, my only disagreement is that I don’t think we should do ANYTHING to prevent businesses from hiring undocumented workers. Interesting contributions for Frederick though - $20,000 from GXS Strategies (Jeff Frederick), $5,500 from Amy Frederick, $2,500 from “Black Republican PAC” to name a few, any public choice economist will tell you that special interest contributions usually mean that they’ll get their moneys worth.

    You hit it right in the nail, the establishment here is no other than Jeff Frederick! And he is sell g himself as the anti-establishment, “change” candidate. Change to what! I’m 100% satisfied with the state of Virginia and the fantastic turnaround achieved by our governor, Lt. Governor and AG. Frederick has publicly thrown under the bus all of the above, he’s criticizing the candidate leading the GOP race for US Senate against Kaine, and dozens of other gaffes, mishaps, allegations for which he was FORCED out of the RPV chairmanship. And that’s who you want to run against Toddy Puller? I’m not sure what y’all are smoking in your neck of the woods, but it surely is something pretty strong…

    Marta, why do you bother? You scream about how I’m such a racist to folks and then come here like you’re some sort of honest broker saying untruthful and often ridiculous things about Jeff Frederick? Give it a rest.

    I can understand you pining over your preferred candidates and saying nice things about them, but hiding behind a thin cloak of anonymity and trying to trash people just makes you look little, petty, and rather foolish.

    If your candidate is so good, he probably doesn’t need you to act this way.

    Frederick is bad news. Fired as chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia and quit the house of delegates. Under an ethical cloud. If his ethics were in line, I wouldn’t write him off, but the establishment is against him because of bad ethics. He was Chairman of the Republican Party, that is established as you can get, but his bad ethics roont it for him and the voters will not like that.
