Dear Howie,Please remove my name from your list of supporters

I am actively supporting Dave Schmidt.I appreciate your help in this matter.

Howie Lind has a long trail of half run and half finished business behind him. Almost all of his failure to the Party is attributable to his day job. Howie is (and all you TEA Party people please sit up and read this one)a LOBBYist to a major corp doing business before the US Government right now.
When he was elected to the Dranesville District, he was non-existant enough that a yound fellow who was full of vigor and drive completed Howie's responsibilities to that District in Howie's stead. And then that enterprising young man was never even given proper credit for the function that he provided. Howie eventually stepped aside for the District Chair position. That enterprising young man who held things together in Dranesville when Howie was absent?? He's openly backing Dave Schmidt.

Howie and his campaign have been using a number of names as endorsements and supporters. Some of the endorsements are outright fabrications. Albert Navas, David Crow, Johanna & Nat Ashworth, Gerrie Smith, Carol Hoffman, Liz & Hunter Richardson, Garnet Dupont, Nancy Ningard, and Larry Ambrogi. All these folks have indicated that they did not endorse Howie, and several have actually hosted events FOR Schmidt!

The point? So how many other names on this list are used fraudulently? How many times does one have to contact Howie to have their name removed from the endorsements?
How many of the folks listed do not even reside in the 10th District??

Be assured that Dave Schmidt's list of supporters is all 10th District grown.
They are your neighbor's endosements...not someone across the State.

See how many Democrats Howie's firm has greased the palms of here.

Visit the official Senate website on Lobbyists, page 6, for Howie's day job.

Appreciate the info.I really hope folks will measure the Party commitments of both men, and common sense tells us that Howie's short in that department.

This TEA party person is more concerned with Wolf's TARP vote and massive spending as appropriations chairman....I'll take Howie - the anti-establishment guy.

The Bulletproof Monk said...

Maybe as a Tea Party person, you'd kindly investigate Wolf's actual vote instead of misguidedly repeating the horseshit you've been fed. Actually, come to think of it, is Lind really just lying his ass off about his priority in re-electing Wolf?? If he is, it should be plenty helpful to spill that bit of info prior to the Convention. That way, we get to observe all the folks who are okay with out-right lies, as long as the right people are doing the lying.

A lobbyist for a major corporation, giving big bucks to both parties, is now anti-establishment!!! Hilarious!

I assume you realize, perhaps you don't, that every major company has a Pac that generally donate to both Democrats and Republicans. Howie Lind has no more control over Fluor's Pac than Jim Rich did with Shell's Pac for over 20 years (which split donations as well). The independent managers of the Pac, not the employee's, have total control. Also, Dave's association does not appear to have a Pac, but his association is supported by big Agri-business who gave $12 million to both D and R's in 2008 - 55% to Democrats. (By the way, Howie has not been in Government Relations with Fluor for over a year. He's now part of their managment for projects in Iraq and Afghanistan that directly support our combat troops.)

The assertion that Howie supports Boxer is simply dishonest, and as a Christian, I assume you'd not want to be part of spreading a lie and a bit of character distortion .

As a Christian, I assume Howie will not want to be part of spreading a lie and a bit of character distortion when he turns on Wolf after his deflection....
That's why it's imperitive to stop this train before it gets to that station, friend.(the last person to post as Michael was Jack Ryan, so I'm already leery of your intent.).

Michael said...

No,I'm not Jack Ryan, I'm Mike Giere out of the 8th - as clearly identified on my log in. So let me get this right; Howie has campaigned, worked and raised money for Wolf for many elections. Last cycle he personally opened an office that primarily helped Wolf. This year, he endorsed Wolf before he got in the race. Now, if I understand you, you have held a communion with a crystal ball and devined that Howie will "turn on Wolf" after his victory Saturday. What the hell kind of thinking is this. I don't understand the level of hate you have in your makeup. Just is beyond me. You need some serious couch time.

Lind has at least one anti-life, anti-second amendment, outspoken Obama supporter on his endorsement page (Donald E. Scoggins). Surely Lind has some control over what's on his website, and who he panders to.

The Bulletproof Monk said...

Oh....SNAP!
There goes the purity test!

Actually, Michael, with supporter Jo Anne Chase (who personally verbally assaulted Wolf at a conservative dinner that I was in the audience of)to Jack Ryan (who I have an e-mail from to Wolf's secretary stating that he will never support Wolf again)to any number of other folks who have stated that they support Howie, because they hate Wolf.
Better yet, why don't you put some teeth to the fact that Howie has ever done anything for the Tenth or Wolf. Howie had to have a fellow finish his business in Dranesville District, because he was never there...
Howie continues to use the names of individuals who do not endorse him to this late date, and he had to have a good show at this last Jefferson Day Dinner, and that introduced the FIRST money Howie has ever given to the 10th District (according to VPAP)
I've actually sponsored Jefferson Day Dinners on occasion.
None of this is personal attacks. It's unanswered facts.

The Bulletproof Monk said...

And Mike....Willie Duetch has either copied your response word for word , or you're him , or he's you. And as for the 8th....Do you want me down there trying to influence YOUR Chairman?
Are you one of the many "outside- of-the-district-endorsements?
