Two emails coming from Del. David Ramadan recently have me screaming to myself, “Will someone please primary this guy?!”
In the first. he beats his chest claiming that the State Corporation Commission “ordered” the owners of the Greenway to respond to his complaint, when, if you read the order, the SCC simply allowed the owners to respond. Not a big misstatement, but an exaggeration nonetheless.
The second, however, is a whopper. In that email, Ramadan writes how “an anonymous donor” has pledge to match 20% of any campaign contributions received by midnight tonight. Of course, there’s really no such thing as an “anonymous” donor given election reporting laws. So just what is he selling here?
All this just reminds me of his disgusting, disturbing tactics during the last campaign in 2011, and it makes me sick to my stomach when I think about another round. Keep in mind that, because he’s now the incumbent, he gets to choose the method of nomination: primary, convention or canvass. It will be interesting to where Ramadan thinks his chances are better. It also will be interesting to see who, if anyone, steps up to unseat this first termer who, in virtually all circles, has failed to impress.
UPDATED 12/31 at 4:51 p.m. Looks like Ramadan isn’t the only one pulling the “anonymous donor” ploy. Jim LeMunyon sent a similar email touting a 20% match.
