Democrat Tom Shields is running in the 73rd Virginia House District and calling himself a “New Generation Of Independent Leadership“.
His opponent, Republican John O’Bannon M.D. has pointed out at several debates that Shields’ office is in the Democratic Party of Virginia Office Suites and that the Democrats are sending mass mailings on Shields behalf that are not truthful and totally dishonest.
So far, Shields has refused to acknowledge Dr. O’Bannon’s claims.
So, the latest fund raising figures are out and Tom “Mr. Independent” Shields issues a press release proudly proclaiming that he raised more money than O’Bannon. But Tom Shields dishonestly hid the truth. He is hoping the voters will not realize his soul is bought and paid for by the Democrats.
In order to hide the embarrassing truth that he is not “Independent” as he claims and he has been lying to voters all along, Shields hides almost $68,000 that the Democrats donated with the untruthful mailings.
Here is the truth in the table below. You can also check it out for yourself on the VPAP website.
TOM SHIELDS – YOUR DISHONESTY HAS BEEN EXPOSED!!! HERE IS THE $67,853.00 YOU ARE HIDING FROM VOTERS. IT’S TIME TO COME CLEAN WITH VIRGINIA!

Thank goodness for the disclosure requirements of Virginia and the Virginia Public Access Project. Otherwise, it would be hard to unmask this dishonesty.
And that’s not all. With half his money coming from the Democratic Party that he fails to mention, he also forgot to tell voters that a large portion of the rest of his fund raising prowess came in the form of a loan from James Ukrop. And of course more union money to add to the Acorn/SEIU cash.
Tom Shields are so indebted to the Democrats, Acorn/SEIU, Unions and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered lobby it will take you a decade in office to pay back your new masters.
Tom Shields thought he could fool the voters, but his deceitful, sneaky scheme has been exposed!
