Tea Party Senate Candidate Linked To The Stinky Mark Tate Case
The more I read about Jamie Radtke, the more it looks like Virginia will have its own Christine O’Donnell running for the GOP US Senate nomination. While reading the comments on this post about her at Bearing Drift I came across a comment by JKM that mentioned her involvement in a scandalous State Senate mess. I thought her name sounded a bit familiar, and sure enough, she was the Political Director for the Virginia Conservative Action PAC (VCAP) when they got advance notice of the Tate indictments. Tate’s defense attorney’s motion to subpoena her is in this link at pages 20-21 of the PDF. Here’s an old TC post of mine discussing those motions, even though I did not call out Radtke’s name specifically at the time (Robin DeJarnette, the Ex. Dir. of VCAP got most of the attention).
For all of her newfound Tea Party fire and brimstone, she certainly seems to be pretty well connected in the establishment, touting her work for George Allen and Jesse Helms. This bio touts her credentials as a bona fide RINO hunter. Yeah, that’s the ticket to winning the US Senate seat back for the GOP. For all of my misgivings about George Allen, I don’t think Radtke is the answer either.
