Democratic Senator Lends a Helping Hand

Anita Kumar

On Friday, Sen. R. Creigh Deeds (D-Bath) sent his political action committee's five staffers to volunteer for targeted Senate races as part of a get-out-the-vote effort a week before the Nov. 6 election.

Deeds, a possible candidate for governor in 2009, has contributed or raised almost $250,000 to campaigns this year.

"At this late stage, the most important contribution we can make is to provide people who can spread
our candidates' positive message and get voters to the polls on Nov. 6," Deeds said. "We have an historic opportunity to take control of the state Senate and give Gov. Kaine the partners he needs to keep Virginia moving forward."

Staffers will volunteer with the following campaigns: J. Chapman "Chap" Petersen running against Sen. Jeannemarie Devolites Davis in the 34th district (Northern Virginia); John Miller running against Tricia Stall in the 1st District (Hampton Roads); Albert Pollard running against Richard Stuart in the 28th District (Stafford-Fredericksburg); Karen Schultz running against Jill Holtzman Vogel in the 27th District (Fauquier-Loudoun); and Mike Breiner running against Ralph Smith in the 22nd District (Roanoke).

As a former Fairfax County Police Officer living in Loudoun County, I find the Republican candidates stance on "ticket fixing" outrageous and flies in the face of what law enforcement is all about. I am amazed that he think it is ok to fix tickets for friends. How fair is that? I do NOT want anyone like this to be the top law enforcment officee in my county. What's next - ok to embezzle funds to pay for his friend's trips? I never fised a ticket in my career even when I was asked to do so by a superior who is now the chief of Montgmery County. He should never even have a badge.
