Gerry Connolly was the chairman of Fairfax County’s Board of Supervisors. Under his leadership, taxes have soared and the county is in deep trouble financially, with a projected $400,000,000 deficit in the new fiscal year. For this, the wise voters of nothern Virginia elected him to congress. There will be a special election on Tuesday, Feb. 3 to elect a new chairman. In this video, Gerry Connolly urges Democrats to lie about the date of the election to Republicans. Is it just a bad joke? Perhaps. But as Connolly makes clear in the continuation of his speech, he wants to make sure that Republican turnout is non-existent. In my book, there’s nothing “democratic” about that.
