More Far-Left Guilt-By-Association Tactics

So now the boys and girls at Ranting Kids ... er, Raising Dough ... er, "Raising Kaine" are attacking Jeff Frederick because he was endorsed by former Dumfries Mayor Mel Bray, recently accused of "keeping a bawdy place," a misdemeanor under the Virginia Code.

I don't know Mel well, though I've met him a few times over the years, and I have to say that, knowing his record, I am dubious about the charge and his knowledge of the activities in the business. But the assertions of Ranting Kid James Marting is assuredly interesting:
The only thing I can say is, "The best judge of a man is the company he keeps."
I guess the point is that Jeff simply didn't notice --- assuming Bray's guilt, as Martin appears to (never mind that pesky Sixth Amendment presumption of innocence) --- the scarlet "P" that is issued to keepers of a bawdy place. Perhaps Bray kept it hidden under an article of clothing (assuming his guilt, which I don't). Perhaps he wears in as a tattoo, in a region where "the sun don't shine."

In any case, I'm certainly happy to play the Martin game, and apply his standard, though, to him: wing-nuts Cindy Sheehan, Mike Gravel, and Dennis Kucinich; adulterer Jesse Jackson; adulterer and prevaricator Bill Clinton; convicted tax-evader Dan Rostenkowski; Democrat David Duke; former KKK member Robert Byrd.

I don't know who comes out worse in this game, but Martin doesn't come out so well, based upon the above listing of the flower of Democrat pulchritude.

I, for one, am fully prepared to reserve judgment on the charges against Bray, as I assume (but don't know) Frederick has.

You can play, too!

Of course Bray is presumed innocent until proven guilty but how about them pork chops and pit bulls for him if he is guilty?

Afraid you're mistaken about David Duke. He was elected to the LA House in 1989 as a Republican and participated in that party's caucus. In 2002 he was elected to the Executive Committee of the Republican Party in St. Tammany (LA) Parish.

Also, forget the fact that it was 2 years ago when Bray was an elected offical and not involved with this. However, its not like Raising Kaine lets facts stand in the way of his low life comments. I suppose according to that moron that if you befriend someone when you are 10 years old, and he does what Bray is accused of 50 years later, your guilty by association?? What an idiot....

LL, I feel pretty certain in saying that the type of punishment I described as a possible sentence for Vick is not, let us say, "proportional" to Bray's alleged offense.

And no, Anon 3:25, I'm not mistaken about Duke. Duke was a Democrat before he declared himself to be a Republican, and was, has been, and is condemned by virtually every Republican leader. To be sure, there are Republicans who are racists, and --- taking you at your word --- perhaps there were enough such individuals in the St. Tammany (LA) Parrish to elect him to a local GOP leadership post in 2002. But the GOP is, of course, NOT stained with the institutional racism that the Democrat Party is.

Jeff was endorsed by Mel Bray in 2005. The Fredrick press release that Raising Kaine quoted was from 2005 when Bray was an elected Democrat who endorsed Jeff, not 2007, when now, Bray is no longer in office.
