Threats, Threats, and More Threats!!!
We’ve already covered the bogus threats from the LEA and their work to rule fiasco, which is backfiring nicely on them.
I missed posting about this when it happened, but we also have noted anti-Wolf robocaller John Grigsby threatening Keith Fimian. Fimian is probably the most conservative Republican who ever ran for Congress in Virginia, and Grigsby is apoplectic because Fimian wasn’t scheduled to attend a Tea Party rally. I have no clue if Fimian went or not, but what a bogus threat. The email is provided below the fold.
Then we have a dire warning from Donny Ferguson, Delgaudio’s former aide who has been promoted from PR guy to Executive Director of the never before heard of Western Tradition Partnership (I bet this is a one man office). In true over the top Delgaudio-trained style, Donny has blown the Ches Bay Act totally out of proportion in an attempt to incite hysterical fear with his “final warning”. Another threat sure to be ignored by its intended recipients. The press release is also below the fold.
|This urgent request just in from Organizer John Grigsby|
There will be Congressional forums at the upcoming http://www.vateapartyconvention.com. While the Libertarian candidates in the 11th and 10th Districts are willing to participate in them, many Republicans, including Keith Fimian and Frank Wolf,have refused to participate, or have claimed “scheduling issues”. The latter claim is bogus, as the candidates have wide latitude in scheduling these forums.
In less than two days,the Virginia Tea Party Patriots Federation, of which Northern Virginia Tea Party is a founding member, will send out a blistering press release against Keith Fimian and Frank Wolf, unless we can get them to participate in these forums. If you’d like to save these candidates from bad press, please contact and alert them about this. Frank Wolf already refused to participate in Northern Virginia Tea Party’s candidate forum. Let’s help him recognize how important it is to reach out to us, something both the Libertarian and Democrat candidates did, by attending.

WTP issues final warning to Loudoun Board before Chesapeake Bay vote
Citizen-powered grassroots group warns about 20,000 residents of bigger government, fewer jobs, higher taxes, loss of homeowner rights under Chesapeake Bay Tax and Control Plan
WASHINGTON – The nation’s largest grassroots opponent of radical environmentalism, with roots in Loudoun County, issued its final warning to county supervisors to drop its controversial Chesapeake Bay Act. The citizens’ group sent a recorded telephone alert to nearly 20,000 Loudoun residents Friday evening.
“This radical Board is using fake claims about water as a ruse to seize control of your home,” said Donny Ferguson, Western Tradition Partnership’s Executive Director. “The Board knows they’re lying, but they view private property as a threat to their radical green views. The outdated, unscientific Chesapeake Bay Tax and Control Plan’s massive tax hikes and iron-fisted control of private property is the most ruthless weapon available,” said Ferguson.
“When the Board’s scheme accomplishes their goals of higher taxes, bigger government and bureaucratic control of private homes, but they admit it does nothing to address water pollution, people know what this Board’s real agenda is. Higher taxes and control of your home.” said Ferguson. “The time has come for this Board to drop its radical agenda.”
Residents in the Blue Ridge, Potomac and Sugarland Run districts were urged to call their supervisor at home. Residents in the Leesburg District, where Supervisor Kelly Burk does not offer constituents a way to personally reach her, were urged to contact her government office.
Roughly 5,300 Dulles District residents represented by the frequently-moving Supervisor Stevens Miller, whose business phones have been cut off and does not list a reliable home phone number, were urged to contact him on his cell phone.
Ferguson served as a Board staff aide to Supervisor Eugene Delgaudio from 2002 to 2007. Delgaudio has no involvement in or input into any of WTP’s lobbying efforts or programs.
WTP does not advocate the election or defeat of candidates. Supported by grassroots members from across the nation, WTP is a fast-growing non-profit organization dedicated to fighting environmental extremism and promoting private property and responsible development and management of land, water, and natural resources. WTP is active nationwide.
