You know, I don't always agree with Ben over at NLS (especially when he says I use foul racial language), but I do think that he sometimes nails the point on the head. Today, he quotes Creigh Deeds at a press conference for Karen Schultz.
"Her opponent on the other hand is a DC insider- her campaign just took a huge infusion of Oil money- the choice between these two could not be more clear- Karen is only one in this race with a real connection to community values."
As Ben says, the donation to Jill Holtzman-Vogel came from her father, Bill Holtzman...who owns the locally-owned Holtzman Oil Corp.
If anyone knows community values, it's Bill Holtzman...considering he employs a good chunk of the Northern Shenandoah Valley in some way, shape, or form. C'mon Creigh, why do you have to label a family-owned local business as some kind of evil entity??? If Karen Schultz is going to stand for the slanted depiction of an honest business that does a lot of good in the community, she has no business representing the 27th District in the Virginia State Senate.
