The comment thread in the Verne Dickerson thread has largely been sidelined onto the subject of the new two-headed Sheriff candidate, Verne Davis, or alternatively, Mark Dickerson. At every event I have been to Mark Davis follows Verne Dickerson around like a faithful servant. Which is what I guess he is now that he sublimated himself to Dickerson. More than one person has now told me that Davis seems to regret his decision to drop out and become Verne’s right hand man. Oh well, too late now.
At the last LCRC meeting, Dickerson finally came right out and said what everyone following this campaign thought was going to happen. That he would be giving Davis a high ranking position in LCSO should he get elected. In what appears to be nothing more than old fashioned machine politics, Verne “I’m a better Christian than you” Dickerson (that name coined by a Patrick Henry College activist, not me) promised Davis a job if he dropped out and backed him.
Davis still has his website up, with an absolutely ridiculous statement present as the only information. That statement is provided below with my commentary. This Sheriff/Vice-Sheriff gambit is truly one of the most ridiculous things I have ever seen. It will be dead and gone soon enough.
UPDATE: Just as the Davis campaign itself vanished shortly after we put out his past and present Democratic connections, the Davis website with his “very interesting and unique opportunities” statement is now gone. The above link will take you straight to the Dickerson website now. I did save a copy of that Davis website page before it vanished, however, just in case anyone doesn’t believe what I have printed below. Unfortunately it’s all too true.
