Delegate O’Bannon Joins Fight to Disenfranchise and Silence Conservatives

I just received the same letter from Delegate John O’Bannon that I got from Jimmie Massie calling on liberal Republicans to use “slating” to silence Conservative voices and disenfranchise our votes.
Several years ago I got to know John O’Bannon and I fought very hard against a Progressive Democrat named Tom Shields who posed a threat to Dr. O’Bannon keeping his seat in the Virginia House of Delegates.
I got to know Dr. O’Bannon and have always considered him a friend. And I have stood at the ready to defend him from any challenger, and I am sure he knows that.
But I feel like I was punched in the gut when this email arrived a few seconds ago. I had already read it and commented on it here, but that same exact message was from Delegate Massie.
But Massie is not Dr. O’Bannon.
But the thought of someone I consider a friend working to disenfranchise me and my Conservative friends and silence my voice after I went to bat for him, gave up time I could have spent with my family, and got muddy and bloody in the trenches for him, is beyond my ability to express. My words fail me.
How much work did this Conservative do on O’Bannon’s behalf? Here is a list of some of the posts.
He welcomed my help in 2009. And now he wants me to be quiet.
I responded with this short reply:

Dear Dr. O’Bannon

After fighting for you to keep you in the house, I am very disappointed that you would join the fight to silence Conservative voices and support this horrible slating that is going on.

My voice, my vote and that of my fellow Conservatives is being disenfranchised by what you are doing.

This rocks me to my very core.

    Thanks for showing up and getting the information out there.

    I’m in favor of throwing all the politicians out of office. We need real American’s willing to
    serve one term without forever benefits in every political office from President on down.

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