Today I received a robocall from the Wasinger campaign. The call tells voters Barbara Comstock voted for Barack Obama. The call says,
“Several news sources, including the Washington Post, have reported this week that liberal lobbyist Barbara Comstock voted for Barack Obama. Her vote helped elect the most liberal President in modern history. How can we possibly trust her to represent conservative voters when she doesn’t even vote republican?
The call goes on to say we should vote for the real conservative (the elusive) Rob Wasinger. It is true that several news sources reported that Barbara voted for Obama in the 2008 PRIMARY! From the Washington Post editorial, referring to Mrs. Comstock,
She said she voted for Mr. Obama because she thought he’d be the easiest candidate for a Republican to beat in the general election.
Yes, Barbara Comstock has admitted to voting for Barack Obama in the 2008 primary when he was running against Hillary Clinton. She thought her vote would help the republican candidate because Obama would be easier to beat than Hillary. Comstock has been solidly opposed to Obama and everything’s he has done as President, particularly Obamacare. She never, ever, supported Obama for President.
Recently I actually met a staffer for the elusive Mr. Wasinger. (Supporters of Wasinger are as elusive as the candidate himself, nearly impossible to find. This staffer was the only person I have met who supports the elusive Mr. Wasinger.) When I asked the staffer why Mr.Wasinger was running for Congress, this was the response, “Rob Wasinger worked with Barbara Comstock on Capitol Hill and he can’t stand her”. I waited for more. Surely Wasinger had other reasons for running for office? Nope. No other reasons were forthcoming. Apparently Rob Wasinger doesn’t like Barbara Comstock and that’s he needs to mount a run for Congress.
I am angry, furious, at the Wasinger campaign for lying to voters. I came home this evening to messages from two republican friends asking me about the elusive Wasinger’s robocall. Both wanted to know if it was true that Barbara Comstock had voted for Obama. They were both quite concerned and they have many family members who will be voting next week. They had NO idea that her vote was in a PRIMARY and Barbara has never supported or voted for Obama in any general election. They had no way of knowing that this robocall was a lie, a purposeful attempt to deceive 10th district voters one week prior to the Firehouse primary. Disgusting.
