Anna Lee Likely To Challenge John Whitbeck for 10th CD Chair

By Loudoun Insider

It isn’t fully confirmed yet, but it looks like long time Republican Party stalwart and super volunteer Anna Lee is going to challenge failed candidate John Whitbeck for the position vacated by Howie Lind.

Whitbeck and his handlers are doing their best to line up endorsements, and they have secured a few, but some of those people are already having regrets after hearing about Anna Lee’s interest.  Remember, Whitbeck performed in much the same way in his failed bid for the 10th HOD nomination – he got out early, lined up endorsements, and ultimately lost with the same people pushing him then as now.

10th District convention goers will need to decide who they want as the leader of the 10th overseeing the various units and sitting on the RPV Executive Committee.  A woman who has worked hard for years in the trenches at all levels, or a Johnny Come Lately who has told people he has caught the political bug and really wants to be elected to something, and is eying this important party position as a stepping stone to his next run for office.

I’ll have more on Howie’s last minute decision not to run for re-election and some related issues soon.  There’s a lot more to this than meets the eye.


  • Jim G says:

    Whitbeck’s closeness with certain unnamed individuals is turn off enough for me.

  • Greg L says:

    Anna Lee would be an utterly deplorable choice here. If you want an insider cabal running things like we had under the Jim Rich regime, vote for Anna.

    She was the one behind making sure no cameras could film at the 10th CD Convention in 2010. An utterly non-grassroots dicatorial wench, and an utterly nasty person. I get a long with all sorts of folks, but I wouldn’t piss on this witch if she were on fire.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    Real classy, Greg.

    Look for Greg to be doing a film for Whitbeck soon.

  • Greg L says:

    To defeat Anna, I’d work for free.

    I really can’t think of anyone I personally loathe more in politics than Anna Lee. That includes Democrats. She’s gone out of her way to be nasty and mean, and every encounter with her has been an ordeal. There is no one I have ever met, ever, who has been so persistently unpleasant to be around.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    Greg, you can dislike her all you want, but this:

    “I wouldn’t piss on this witch if she were on fire”

    is really a bit too much.

  • look in the mirror says:

    “She’s gone out of her way to be nasty and mean, and every encounter with her has been an ordeal. There is no one I have ever met, ever, who has been so persistently unpleasant to be around.”

    That sounds a lot like Greg L actually.

    Its ok, LI, we can’t all have the selective morals and principles of Greg L.

    Wait til Anna Lee endorses a client of Greg’s…she’ll be the best thing since sliced bread.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    I personally find Greg pleasant to be around, but this was way over the top, and he has supported several candidates now that I would just about guarantee he wouldn’t have supported if they were not paying him.

  • Facts says:

    Lee’s campaign is rumored to be run by JoAnne Chase…who is still sore over the ramadan thing…this campaign goes nowhere and Whitbeck wins big…we cannot go back to the losing ways of Jim Rich and company, talk about GOBGN LI, shees…

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    Good grief, Joanne Chase won’t be running Anna Lee’s campaign , Anna Lee will be running her campaign. More will come out about the wheeling and dealing to get this handoff of power to Whitbeck and things won’t go as well as the wheeler dealers think.

    I was wondering whether they used the carrot or the stick to push Howie aside. I think it was a bit of both now.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    Looks like the tactic of the Whitbeck Worshipers is going to be to link Anna Lee and Joanne Chase at every opportunity.

  • Wait… Loudoun Insider giving us lessons in civility?

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    Willie, while I may be pretty over the top at times, I have never said anything along the lines of “I wouldn’t piss on that witch if she were on fire”. That’s pretty misogynistic and way over the line.
