Chuck Colgan To Sponsor Massive Tax Hike

18 December 2009 | 29th VA Senate, Virginia Politics | 12 Comments

I hope those of you out there who voted to re-elect Chuck Colgan are as pleased with him today as you were when you cast that vote.  Colgan announced he is going to be the chief patron this session for a bill hiking the state income tax by two billion dollars.  Although the measure is […]

Colgan And Barker Break Another Promise

8 April 2009 | 39th VA Senate, 29th VA Senate | 25 Comments

Two Democratic Senators switched their votes on HB 1851 (introduced by Scott Lingamfelter R-31st) today and made the difference in upholding the Governor/DNC Chairman’s veto of a bill that would allow active duty and reserve military personnel to be excepted from Virginia’s “one gun a month” rule.  George Barker and Chuck Colgan, who had previously […]

Chuck Colgan Votes For Illegal Aliens, Again

28 January 2009 | 29th VA Senate, Virginia Senate | 33 Comments

Remember when Chuck Colgan told people last election he was going to be tough on illegal immigration?  Guess what folks — he recently voted to provide illegal aliens with preferential in-state tuition rates in SB 1037 even though federal law prohibits providing such benefits.  I guess campaign promises aren’t what they used to be. Of […]

The King’s Clothes Vanish

19 February 2008 | 29th VA Senate | 34 Comments

Ken Cuccinelli, who is unarguably the best Virginia Senator from Fairfax County reminded readers of his “Cucinelli Compass” today about some interesting, well, changes in the policy outlook of Senator Chuck Colgan.  I had been somewhat hopeful that Colgan’s campaign promises actually meant something, especially after he introduced SB 90 which would have required that […]

E-Verify Moves To Subcommittee

28 January 2008 | Illegal Aliens, 29th VA Senate, Virginia Senate | 22 Comments

Senator Colgan’s SB 90 moved to the Senate Courts of Justice Special Subcommittee on Immigration today where it faces an uphill battle to survive given that Dick Saslaw heads this subcomittee. SB 90 would to require that all Virginia employers participate in the federal E-Verify program, making it tremendously more difficult for illegal aliens […]

Colgan Introduces E-Verify Bill

4 January 2008 | Illegal Aliens, 29th VA Senate | 114 Comments

Apparently, not all Democrats are following the lead of those such as Democrats on the Loudoun Board of County Supervisors and Arlington Chairman Walter Tejada in trying to align their party with illegal alien lobbyists. After hearing from constituents in his district about their concerns about illegal immigration during the elections and seeing the […]

Manassas-Manassas Park Post-Election Analysis

7 November 2007 | 29th VA Senate, Manassas Park, Manassas City, 50th HOD District | 63 Comments

Manassas is a pretty solidly Republican area with strong affinity for long-time Senator Chuck Colgan, and a jurisdiction where the immigration debate has been hot and heavy, especially with the construction of the “Liberty Wall” billboard in the city’s historic district.  The 50th District rematch with Jackson Miller and Jeanette Rishell was largely a referendum […]

Chuck Colgan’s Best New Buddies

5 November 2007 | 29th VA Senate | 33 Comments

One of the best arguments I’ve heard lately for voting for Bob Fitzsimmonds in the 29th Senate District are the endorsements by Republicans Russ Potts and John Chichester of his opponent Chuck Colgan. Chichester played a huge role in Mark Warner’s historic tax increase which resulted in tax surpluses ever since enactment, and along with […]

Election Eve Desperation

5 November 2007 | 29th VA Senate | 54 Comments

I was at the VRE this morning with Jackson Miller when something odd happened.  A team of Colgan supporters showed up and began putting Colgan signs up all over Old Town Manassas.
In Fairfax this would not be remarkable, but it is illegal in Manassas to put political signs on public property.  I would have thought that […]

Chuck Colgan: Public Benefits For Illegal Aliens

1 November 2007 | 29th VA Senate | 14 Comments

Today we take a look at another element of the “Colgan Straight Talk”, which so far is proving to be nothing but a collection of last-minute horse hockey designed to obfuscate Senator Colgan’s voting record.
Colgan: I do not support state benefits for illegal immigrants
Well, this must be another recent policy conversion on the part of […]

New Yorkers To Rescue Colgan Campaign

1 November 2007 | PWCDC, 29th VA Senate | 31 Comments

Last year, Jeanette Rishell had to bring in a field director from New Hampshire during the last few months of her campaign in order to help out her campaign.  This year, Riley is reporting that Senator Chuck Colgan finds the local pickings so meager that he has had to hire folks from Maryland and New […]

Colgan’s Support Of In-State Tuition For Illegal Aliens

31 October 2007 | 29th VA Senate | 18 Comments

Recently, Senator Chuck Colgan’s campaign manager Roger Snyder made a comment giving us “Colgan Straight Talk” that is anything but straight. Today, we go to the second item on this list:
Colgan: I do NOT SUPPORT allowing in-state tuition for illegal immigrants

Has Chuck Colgan Lost His Mind?

30 October 2007 | 29th VA Senate | 37 Comments

Recently, Senator Chuck Colgan’s campaign manager Roger Snyder made a comment giving us “Colgan Straight Talk” that is anything but straight. Over the next few days, I’m going to work through some of these statements and expose them for the bald-faced lies that they are. Despite my previous convictions that while I disagreed […]

Chuck Colgan Sets Trap And Catches Himself

29 October 2007 | 29th VA Senate | 35 Comments

For some unknown reason, Senator Colgan’s campaign has been busily denying parts of his voting record that are very easy to verify.  Bob Fitzsimmonds has responded to some of these ridiculous claims in an email today, and they make for fascinating reading.  Did Chuck really think no one would challenge these statements?

Colgan Endorses Abortion In Recent Mailer

26 October 2007 | 29th VA Senate | 69 Comments

This is part of a campaign mailer sent out by Chuck Colgan today (click here to see the whole thing) that again complains about Bob Fitzsimmond’s positions, based not on what work he has done in the past, but for what Senator Ken Cuccinelli did after Bob Fitzsimmonds stopped working for him. What’s worse […]

Chuck Colgan’s “Biblical Justice” For The Retarded

24 October 2007 | 29th VA Senate | 50 Comments

So far there’s no indication that Senator Colgan intends to re-introduce legislation that will permit mental health staff to inflict corporal punishment using straps and paddles on retarded children.

Colgan’s Recent Mailer Dissected

22 October 2007 | 29th VA Senate | 84 Comments

Senator Colgan’s recent foray into the rather ill-advised false negative campaign strategy of the DPVA received some well-deserved condemnation today from Bob Fitzsimmonds.  It’s pretty amusing to see a candidate brush off these false negative attacks so easily, which really makes me think that Colgan must be getting awfully desperate to find issues upon which […]

Colgan Goes Anti-Second Amendment

20 October 2007 | 29th VA Senate | 23 Comments

Now that Chuck Colgan has pretty much failed to counter Bob Fitzsimmond’s criticism of his voting record, he’s decided to go on the attack in a rather unusual way that really makes me wonder whether he understands this district at all.  Noting that Bob Fitzsimmonds has worked for Senator Ken Cuccinelli in the past, he’s […]

Colgan Steals Fitzsimmonds Plan, MJM Drives By Without Noticing

17 October 2007 | 29th VA Senate | 66 Comments

The Manassas Urinal Massager, which has never failed to take an editorial position aligned with the illegal immigrant lobby, has blacked out Bob FitzSimmonds in today’s issue while attempting to give cover to their good buddy Chuck Colgan after Colgan failed to sponsor a single bill addressing illegal immigration in the last 32 years.

FitzSimmonds and Miller Out Fundraise Opponents

15 October 2007 | 29th VA Senate, 50th HOD District | 6 Comments

Manassas area Republicans Bob FitzSimmonds and Jackson Miller both bested their pro-illegal immigrant Democratic opponents in September fundraising.  FitzSimmonds beat Colgan $161,346 to $134,494 while Miller beat Rishell $60,648 to $38,028.  This is quite a turn from earlier reporting periods, where cash from Richmond was giving local Democrats the edge in campaign finance.  Although the […]
