Simpson Supporter Ken Reid aka “Black/Delgaudio Fan” Files To Run As Republican Candidate
Ken Reid just announced yesterday that he is filing to run against Kelly Burk for Leesburg Supervisor. He is the worst possible choice to do so, and will absolutely lose, ensuring a return of Edgar Hatrick’s employee to the BOS. Surely the LCRC can find someone more likable who has a better chance of winning in strongly Democratic Leesburg. Ken Reid is not that candidate.
Ken Reid got in a lot of hot water with the NovaTownHall crew in 2007 for his blogging under assumed names in defense of Steve Simpson and strongly against LCRC nominee Greg Ahlemann (see here for just one example). You would think that maybe he would have learned his lesson. Naaaah.
I’ve been battling with a character named Black/Delgaudio fan for some time here on TC, about Black and Delgaudio of course, but lately more about BDF’s love for Steve Simpson. I’ve been talking about stealth LCRC support for Simpson for some time, and some people refuse to believe it exists. Well, it does, including by BDF.
I don’t make a habit of outing commenters, but have no qualms doing so if they step way over the line with me, or if they are public figures who are blatantly bullshitting the public under assumed names. Ken Reid just challenged me on this issue at NVTH, and this is my response.
BDF has commented as a number of entities from several IP addresses, all with the same gravatar. One of those IPs has a number of comments from Ken Reid posting as himself, along with Black/Delgaudio Fan, Rabble Rouser, Leesburg Joe and others. I am putting some of his choice BDF pro-Simpson comments below the fold. I guess this could be someone else using Ken Reid’s computer, but I highly doubt it, especially given his history at NVTH last time. So, LCRC, if you want a Steve Simpson supporter as your Leesburg candidate, pick Ken Reid. Otherwise, find someone else who actually has a chance of beating Kelly Burk.
UPDATE: I guess it shouldn’t be too surprising that Ken Reid would support party jumper Steve Simpson, and have party jumper Jack Ryan jump to his defense in comments – Ken Reid jumped the party in the last election. Here’s one mention of it in the press, and here’s a link to his Loudoun Electoral Board folder when he filed to run as an Independent against Republican Jim Clem. Party jumping is all the rage in the LCRC, isn’t it?
Mark Davis is a Leesburg cop and lives in Hoity Toity Middleburg. I keep telling all you RINOs here — Steve Simpson is the real deal!
Another swipe at a fine sherriff and fine American named Steve Simpson. He’s the real conservative in this race He’s the real deal, but you always gotta slap him, don’t you — LIar!
All these posers need to back out and let Steve Simpson run the department and let him win!
I say simpson — IN! Go Steve!
Here we go again. LI and all you RINOS are trying to destroy a good civil servant like Steve Simpson, just because Dale Polen Meyers, another fine citizen, is behind him and VRTA. It was a mistake for crying out loud! A Mistake!
