Angela Kelly-Wiecek Introduced Dave Brat as Conservative College Professor at Hanover GOP Meeting

P1080511I first met 7th Congressional District Candidate Dave Brat on August 21, 2010 at 8:00 AM at the Mechanicsville library. Not too many people can be that specific as to the time and place they first met someone. So why do I remember this?

That Saturday morning the Hanover Republican Committee held it’s monthly meeting at the Mechanicsville Library and Dave Brat was the invited speaker. And after the usual pledge, prayer and reading of the Republican Creed, the Committee Chairman at the time, Angela Kelly-Wiecek – now a Hanover Supervisor – introduced Brat and made a big deal about him being a Conservative college professor. Kelly-Wiecek was very complementary to Brat and dwelled on his Conservatism and his background as an economist who specializes in ethics – and teaches ethics – at Randolph-Macon College.

And I was truly impressed at the presentation by Dr. Brat that morning and the time went by all too fast. An amazing Conservative who really gets it, I thought.

Fast forward to 2014.

As I see the lies coming from the Eric Cantor campaign calling Dr. Brat a Liberal College Professor,  I am stunned at Angela Kelly-Wiecek’s silence. Angela was the one that told the Committee that Dr. Brat was a Conservative. She introduced Brat to us and made a big deal of that fact. And face it, she wouldn’t have invited a Liberal College Professor to address the Hanover Republican Committee on ethics of all things, would she?

And as I watched her this past Saturday at the 7th District Convention wildly cheering for Eric Cantor, reminding me of a teenage girl at a Justin Bieber concert, other than feeling quite embarrassed for her immature behavior, I couldn’t help but flash back to August 21, 2010 and the words she had to say about Dave Brat as Eric Cantor proceeded to publicly call Dave Brat a Liberal in his Convention speech.

Apparently the words Brat spoke on that warm August morning nearly 4 years ago about political ethics did not stick with Kelly-Wiecek. If they had, she would publicly call Cantor out for his dishonesty. A high standard of ethics would demand Kelly-Wiecek set the record straight. And one of two things is going on here. Either Angela Kelly-Wiecek was being dishonest in 2010 with her characterization of Brat as a Conservative College Professor, or she is being dishonest in her silence, allowing Cantor to spread a lie that she knows to be a lie.

But I can tell you, as I have grown to know Dave Brat over the years, what Kelly-Wieck said in 2010 was the absolute truth. Dave Brat is a Conservative.

And his words on ethics that I heard that day have been a major factor in shaping my writing on this blog. I learned that I am just as ethically and morally bankrupt as the person uttering the lie if I know the truth and say nothing. I will call Eric Cantor or any other politician out when they are being dishonest. It is my obligation.

What say you Ms. Kelly-Wiecek? Were you being dishonest in 2010 or are you allowing Cantor to be dishonest now?

And how do you expect us to believe you when you sit on the Hanover Board of Supervisors with this contradiction in ethics?

You can still jump up on a table or chair and cheer like a Cantor Beibliever AND ask him to be truthful. Because we simply can’t trust those that intentionally deceive us.

And the larger question is, why would Kelly-Wiecek invite a man to a Committee Meeting to talk about ethics if she is willing to ignore the lesson?

    Hypocrite! What else?

    Angela is a politician. She will sway whichever way the winds blow. She was elected, along with the other supervisors, to effect real change in Hanover County. Instead, they drank the Kool-aid. The same old cronyism and pocket-padding is going on, with the supervisors taking care of their development buddies and their political allies, and to hell with the people that elected them.

    Look at what happened with the recent comp plan. Residents told them what we wanted, and they opted to vote with what the developers wanted. Goochland County elected a new board, and they cleaned out the top county bureaucrats. This board did nothing. Wayne Hazzard talked the talk, but didn’t walk the walk. Canova Peterson the architect is beholden to the developers. They did away with proffers, which benefited some of them personally. Ethics is just another word to our Hanover Supervisors and the county bureaucrats who run them.

    We need to purge the board of supervisors and start over.

    Ironically enough, we seem to be hearing more & more chatter like Fed Ups w/ each passing day. He looks to be right and definitely about Wiecek

  5. Dave Z. says:

    Sadly, Wiecek’s political credibility, personal integrity, and trustworthiness are running on fumes. She will need very close examination if and when she is up for re-election. Sit Tight!

    This is very disturbing! She seemed so honest and genuine when she came to my house to ask for my vote.

    It makes me wonder what else she may have deceived me on when she came to my house. I’ll be keeping a much closer eye on her moving forward.

    Thx for the heads up.

    What a hypocrite! You people should VOTE HER OUT at first chance.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
