Democrat Tom Shields has virtually withdrawn from the 73rd House District with his latest ad, mailed by his bosses Tim Kaine and the Democratic Party of Virginia. His campaign has also taken money from Acorn / SEIU sources and supporters.
If there were any voters left that had not decided to vote against Tom Shields, this mailer should do the trick. The desperation is unmistakable and the accusation laughable and downright fraudulent.
Seems Shields’ beef is with Delegate O’Bannon’s position against using Virginia’s dwindling funds to support fetal stem cell research. I personally heard Dr. O’Bannon, a noted Neurologist, tell Shields that fetal stem cells have shown far less potential than adult stem cells.
This is Dr. O’Bannon’s field of expertise!
Shields is not a doctor and has no expertise in the medical field. Stem cell research is closely related to Neurology and the potential discoveries are watched and monitored closely by O’Bannon. As a physician, if fetal stem cells has shown any promise over adult stem cell research, Dr. O’Bannon will always do what is in the best interest of his patients.
See, those with no understanding of stem cell research like Shields really don’t care about the issue. Shields simply sees this as a way to force more abortions to harvest such cells. This is nothing more than a nod to the radical pro abortion lobby that own Tom Shields.
Voters are smart enough to realize a fraud when they see one. Tom Shields fits that bill perfectly.
While Shields whines about laughable issues like this, his party plans to place a massive tax on pacemakers, stents, artificial heart valves, defibrillators, automated wheelchairs, mechanized artificial limbs, replacement hips and knees, surgical gurneys, laparoscopic equipment and more.
If Shields were really concerned with others, wouldn’t he be screaming that Obama is trying to kill us all? Especially seniors by making these devices which help the elderly live fuller lives unaffordable?
Vote no to Shields and send him back to New York where he came from. Tell him we don’t need his radical politics in Virginia.
