Correcting The Record

22 June 2007 | 51st HOD District | 30 Comments

While I was out of town there was this interesting post by James Young which blasted at what he considered some of the myths of the 51st convention process. Since James only showed up at the very end of the convention, I’m going to forgive him for some of the errors in his post, […]

The Math Error

13 June 2007 | 51st HOD District | 41 Comments

At the 51st District Convention, the elections committee report showed there were more votes than qualified delegates in three precincts.  In two of those precincts Faisal Gill won (Lake Ridge and Penn), and in another, Julie Lucas won (Civic Center).  When RPV was asked how to address these “overvotes”, their answer was that these precincts […]

13 June 2007 | 51st HOD District, PWCRC | 25 Comments

The war within the PWCRC has apparently expanded into a fight between PWCRC Chairman Tom Kopko and 11th Congressional District Chairman Becky Stoeckel according to a post that appeared yesterday on Skeptical Observer. Kopko’s tirade against Stoeckel, prompted by what is reported to be a call for a meeting to consider Julie Lucas’ appeal […]

Lucas Files For School Board, Appeals 51st Convention

12 June 2007 | 51st HOD District, Prince William County | 23 Comments

I’ve gotten word that Julie Lucas has filed as a candidate for the Prince William County School Board, and filed her appeal with the 51st Legislative District Committee, which is comprised of Tom Kopko.
The world awaits with baited breath to see what decision Tom Kopko will render.  Will he toss Faisal Gill under the bus […]

Gainesville Times Coverage of the 51st Convention

9 June 2007 | 51st HOD District | 11 Comments

Dan Roem, who writes for the Gainesville Times has a pretty good write-up on the 51st District convention, which Citizen Tom denounces as juvenile and biased.  Since Dan stuck through the whole ordeal from the beginning, and Tom to my knowledge didn’t attend any part of the convention, I think I’m going to rely on […]

Judge For Yourself

7 June 2007 | 51st HOD District | 24 Comments

Not Larry Sabato has posted audio from the 51st District Convention which should allow readers to judge for themselves whether this post in Faisal Gill’s fan website is accurate or a steaming pile of horse manure.

New Blog

5 June 2007 | 51st HOD District, Blogs | 18 Comments

Our friend Charles has started up a new blog called “Fans of Faisal“.  So far it’s pretty much limited to his previous postings regarding Faisal Gill’s candidacy.   Since it appears that Faisal is the Republican nominee at this point, it makes sense, although I don’t recall anyone doing something like this for any other nominee […]

An Unrealistic Solution

4 June 2007 | 51st HOD District | 70 Comments

I hadn’t intended to write about the 51st until there were some official statements available to talk about, but this latest attempt to quell the rancor by enticing Julie Lucas to post a last-minute challenge to Toddy Puller needs to be addressed.

51st District Appeal Possibilities

3 June 2007 | 51st HOD District | 79 Comments

If the 51st District convention is thrown out by the 11th District Committee Ccommittee, and that decision is not overturned by RPV, there are only a few options available for selecting a nominee by the state-mandated deadline of June 12th. Article VIII of the Party Plan requires that conventions are announced thirty days prior […]

An Irregularity Confirmed

3 June 2007 | 51st HOD District | 16 Comments

I had a chance to interview Chris and Barbara Cummings, two delegates from the Penn precinct that participated in the 51st District convention this weekend. They observed one of the more troubling irregularities at the convention that I reported on yesterday.

Paul Nichols Scores Big

2 June 2007 | 51st HOD District | 33 Comments

I’ve heard that Mark Warner has donated one million dollars to the campaign of Paul Nichols for Delegate. That is an unprecedented campaign war chest for a House of Delegates race in Prince William County.
Do Democrats smell blood in the water?

Observations On The 51st District Convention

2 June 2007 | 51st HOD District | 33 Comments

The 51st District convention was a pretty strange event on many levels. Although the intent of having conventions is to increase the number of people who are actively participating in the political process as Republicans, to at least some degree we’ve done a good job of poisoning the well of potential activists out there. […]

Keep Fighting Julie!

2 June 2007 | 51st HOD District | 22 Comments

I’ve heard that there are witnesses willing to testify that Fasil Gill’s son gave a ballot to someone not a delegate in the Penn precinct who cast the one over-vote in that precinct. Had that precinct not been over-voted, and the other precincts (Lake Ridge and Civic Center) been thrown out as suggested by […]

NOTE: This is a corrected version of an earlier post. Rather than leave incorrect information out on the web, I’ve opted to correct the entire post. This is going to be a complicated situation, so I want to keep the facts as clear as I can.

Twenty Four Hours

31 May 2007 | 51st HOD District | 77 Comments

Desperation apparently has a real potential to lead to atrocity. Instead of answering criticism that Faisal Gill may have been violating federal laws governing lobbyists, apparently violated campaign finance laws in his latest mail piece, and that his current law partner has been a lobbyist for several entities listed by the Treasury Department as […]

The press is starting to weigh in on some of the unusual goings-on within the Prince William County Republicans today, noting the controversies in the Clerk’s race, the Sherrif’s race and the 51st District. Now that the conventions and primaries that will decide these races are fast approaching, it seems that the local […]

Another Faisal Gill “Oops Moment”

30 May 2007 | 51st HOD District | 42 Comments

Mr. Attention To Detail (aka Faisal Gill) is apparently at it again.  I’ve gotten word that a six page letter has been showing up in delegate’s mailboxes today that doesn’t have the required disclosure regarding who paid for and authorized the mailing.  This would seem to be a violation of Virginia Code Section 24.2-956, and […]

Faisal Gill Evades Lobbyist Disclosure Laws

29 May 2007 | 51st HOD District | 39 Comments

After Julie Lucas mailed out a flyer to 51st District residents mildly criticizing Faisal Gill for lobbying for increased government expenditures on behalf of his clients, Faisal Gill responded with his own mail piece saying that there’s nothing wrong with being a lobbyist, and includes pictures of RPV Chairman Ed Gillespie and Mississippi Governor Haley […]

NLS: Faisal Gill The Anti-Hero

29 May 2007 | 51st HOD District | Comments Off

Not Larry Sabato gave his readers something to consider on Memorial Day:
Faisal’s problem is not just that he associates himself with people that are thrown out of places for security reasons.  It’s the disrespect he shows the professionals that are trying to keep us safe from another terrorist attack.
Remember that on Memorial Day.
