Well, I am certain you have been receiving a litany of e-mails from each of the Republican statewide candidates recently. While they all seem to tout some sort of positive achievement, there is one candidate who has displayed a negative streak that no one else wants to touch or even analyze. Patrick Muldoon, who is running against Bill Bolling at the Republican State Convention, has been sending out last ditch desperation e-mails to the delegates for support. However, each of these e-mails is filled with many fabrications of Bill Bolling’s record as a legislator and as Lieutenant Governor. Bolling has been a tireless leader and public servant, who has a proven record on behalf of working on behalf of families, whether it is having a 100% pro-life voting record, advocating for school choice, and fighting for lower taxes.
Muldoon’s desperation keeps getting more interesting. Each day up until the Convention on May 30th, Muldoon plans to send out an e-mail each day stating why he should be elected, along with attacking Bolling’s record. Today, the 9th District, Muldoon’s home district, sent an e-mail out stating they are supporting Bolling, because of his dedication and service to the Commonwealth of Virginia. This e-mail also noted that they assisted Muldoon, when he ran for several public offices and failed to win, but he did not take their advice when they encouraged him to stop the attacks. If this is not a sign of desperation, I don’t know what else could be considered under this category.
The most recent fabrication is Muldoon’s recent attacks of the McDonnell/Bolling Energy Plan. Muldoon states in his e-mail that Bolling is taking a page out of Al Gore’s Global Warming Agenda by not signing Americans for Prosperity’s pledge to “oppose legislation relating to climate change that includes a net increase in government revenue.” The truth is that Bill Bolling has signed this pledge and remains devoted to ensuring that we address our energy needs in Virginia by utilizing offshore drilling, clean coal technology, and utilizing renewable resources. There is no correlation between the McDonnell/Bolling energy plan and Al Gore, so how can Muldoon claim this without proof.
Virginians do not need desperation or liars leading them, rather they deserve a honest leader, who will work tirelessly for them. Muldoon’s web of lies only hurts himself, not Bill Bolling, who is an effective leader.
