O'Bannon Responds To Shields About Acorn And Stealing O'Bannon Yard Signs

ShieldsAcorn
I really misjudged Tom Shields in my earlier posts on the man. Not only is he taking money from Congressman Bobby Scott, SEIU/Acorn and others, he still refuses to abandon his support for Acorn. Even after the child prostitution tapes were shown. He is trying to raise money, calls Delegate O’Bannon names for pointing out Shield’s Acorn connection and now, O’Bannon’s signs are being damaged and stolen. And not just a few.

I believe the Tom Shield’s campaign is the most despicable one Virginian’s have seen in a long time. Anti-Catholic attacks, support for Acorn, and lies and distortions on O’Bannon’s record. This is a win at all costs campaign that has fallen so far behind that attacks are all he has left.

It has been a week since we first called on Tom Shields to renounce Scott’s vote to fund Acorn and Acorn itself. Not a peep!

Voters of the 73rd district deserve better than a scoundrel like Tom Shields. So does Virginia!

Below is a Press Release from Delegate O’Bannon:

Greetings!

Our campaign has been very busy lately. We’ve been putting up yard signs, hosting meet and greets, attending candidate forums, going door to door, and making phone calls. We are doing everything we can to make sure we keep John O’Bannon in the House of Delegates.

With so much going on, we wanted to make sure we keep you updated on everything and let you know where you can help out.

In case you missed it, last week we included a link to a blog that has been covering our race. The post we linked was one in which the blogger wanted to know whether or not Tom Shields supported Congressman Bobby Scott’s vote to continue funding ACORN with taxpayer money even after video’s surfaced containing evidence of corruption and illegal activity.

This was a legitimate question for 3 reasons:

1. Tom Shields worked for Bobby Scott for almost 5 years.

2. Tom Shields has been claiming that, if elected, he would stand up to his Party leaders when they made the wrong decision.

3. If Tom Shields is demanding that Delegate O’Bannon comment on a college thesis that is 20 years old, surely he should be expected to comment on corruption that is occuring RIGHT NOW.

Apparently, Tom Shields takes it personally when someone asks him a question, because he chose to respond by claiming that our campaign had accused him of supporting child prostitution and asking his supporters to donate money so he could beat “disgusting” John O’Bannon.

Friends, if you receive anything from Tom Shields claiming that we made any accusations against him, please know that it is a total lie. We simply agreed with a blogger that Tom Shields should let the people know where he stands on that sort of corruption by organizations like ACORN and if wanted to know if he would stick to his word and scold one of his Party leaders for making a bad vote.

Please view our Press Release and if you think we deserve an answer to that question, email Tom Shields (tom@shieldsfordelegate.com) and ask him if he agrees with Bobby Scott’s vote or if he will publicly denounce it and ACORN’s dispicable practice.

NRA Endorses John O’Bannon

This week, Delegate John O’Bannon was honored to be endorsed by the National Rifle Association. The NRA also gave Delegate O’Bannon an “A” rating for his hard work on behalf of protecting the 2nd Amendment.

Yard Signs, etc.YARD SIGNS AND 4X8′s

If you’ve driven anywhere in the district lately, you’ll notice that we have put out a ton of yard signs and 4×8′s. Unfortunately, many of these signs have been vandalized recently. Some people have even had their signs stolen multiple times. If you had a sign that was vandalized or stolen, please let us know asap so we can get a new one out to you.

If you haven’t requested a sign yet, you can do so by sending us an email, signing up on our website, calling HQ or just stopping by and picking one up. Since it looks like our opponent is going to keep taking signs, we need to get as many out as possible to help offset the ones that get stolen.

We also have some 4×8 signs left. If you’d like to trade in your regular sign for a big one, we’d be happy to upgrade you! Just let us know and we’ll deliver one to your house and set it up for you.

Please make sure to let us know if your sign has gone missing. No matter how many times we have to, we will keep replacing them until Election Day. We need to show our opponent’s supporters that resorting to these childish tactics will only make us more determined!

Once again, thanks for your support. We couldn’t do this without you.

Team O’Bannon

  1. First of all, of course the NRA , Chamber of Commerce and the Family Family Foundation along with the Virginia Socierty of Human Life are going to endorse O'Bannon and none of the Democrat challengers to any incumbant Republicans have a chance of getting an endorsement from the NRA and ohers anymore than O'Bannon will get one from Labor, Conservation, Environment or Education Tom. Thats just the paradigm that exists right now.

    Countless signs have been vandalized this year, especially Rheinhart, Grogan and Louspassi signs in near Chesterfield. Its not politicos but rather young folks. The biggest reality check to this point is much of it happens on Friday nights following football games. I traveled down the street last weekend around 10PM only to see countless signs (all not just one Party) all over the streets.

  3. Rumor has it that the O'Bannon camp is not accepting the call for a debate between the two before the lection. If true that speaks volumes about O'Bannon, but given the fact he is facing the greatest potential challenge of any of the local races frankly he may just be better served be not debating.

    In a 367 house canvass in the City portion of the 73rd, Shields is outpacing O'Bannon by a wide margin however a significant number (about 20%) of likely voters were still undecided at this point. What is striking is how many not claim the "independent" designation as opposed to this area some three years ago during the Webb canvass according to participants. Next canvass is Tuckahoe, the heart of O'Bannon support.

  5. Tom White says:

    In many cases, as reported to me by several people, McDonnell signs were left intact and only O'Bannon signs were removed. From what I understand, several properties have now made use of computer cameras to capture motion and one has a night vision device. I will be happy to post the pictures, albeit closer to election day.

  6. Tom White says:

    Actually, there are several more events scheduled between now and election day. With the Acorn scandal looming large and connecting Shields to tainted money, I am looking forward to a debate. O'Bannon killed Shields at the UR debate, I am going to have the stuttering Shields videos up next week. And the next event was even better.

    And frankly, the two city precincts are showing a near tie. I don't know where you are getting your info, but these SHOULD show a large margin for Shields. They don't. That does not bode well for the Acorn candidate. Perhaps the neighborhood does not want brothels nearby. I am sure O'Bannon will do his part to defund this disgusting group Shields supports.

  7. "connecting Shields to tainted money" is a heft charge Tom. care to back that up. Thats close to defamation grounds given no where on VPAP filings has the Shields campaign received any donations from any entity affiliated with ACORN/SEIU or any arm.
    There are many retired folks in the 73rd Tom who could easily see the healthcare industry as simply just another bully no different than ACORN and given O'Bannon's donor list it may benefit him for this tact to go way frankly. I challenge you to find Virginia tax dollars going to anything related to ACORN. Thats at the federal level Tom. O'Bannon will not be "defunding" anything. In fact there is some question (legally) as to whether Congress can actually defund them. That battle will be interesting.

    Consider it backed up http://www.vpap.org/candidates/profile/money_in_d

    Ummm. Retired people? Aren't they on Medicare?

    And exactly which Insurance Companies has O'Bannon accepted money from? Virginia Radiology and other medical associations don't bully anyone. They are groups of Doctors that share information and techniques to better the medical field. Dr. O'Bannon is a renouned Neurologist from which Virginia gets an extreme bang for the buck. We only pay him $18K a year and have a full time Neurologist to consult on anything medical. He probably saves the state hundreds of thousands of dollars a year because we don't need to hire a doctor as a consultant. Pretty cool. huh?

    And of course the state can defund Acorn. The organization has many arms that channel $$$ into it. The SEIU is one. Who do you think caters state events? I believe it would be perfectly legal to pass a bill that forbids the state to enter into any agreement with a Caterer that uses SEIU employees until the investigations are completed. Since the SEIU has given over $4 million to Acorn, this is a reasonable idea.

    And there are MANY more ways the State can dry up Acorn money.

    Congress can and will defund them, or they will be replaced in 2010. They know that.

    And if you pay attention, you will see that this has progressed beyond the 73rd. The statewide Dems are now involved. The RPV is calling for all the tainted money to be returned.

  10. O'Bannon has received over 100K dollars from the healthcare industry Tom so if you think that the 500 bucks recently given to the Shields campaign by the union will tie Shields than using your logic will not O'Bannon be tied to the healthcare industry in the same manner?

    There are plenty of retired Richmonders in the annexed portion of the City which in part is part of the 73rd. Unless of course retired State employees do not count in your book. Whether or not they are on medicare is beside the point, but rather they frequent the medical industry more often than most of us and have to deal with the the entire insurance/billing mess mkore often. By the way I spoke with about two dozen "retired" folks in the 73rd that as of yet still have not received that State Tax refund…..ummm guess who they blame for that…and it ain't Tom Shields….I guess the shortfall is worse than O'Bannon has been saying….

  12. Tom White says:

    O'Bannon has received money from the Medical Community, of which he is a member. Not the same thing. I know of no donations he received from health INSURANCE, which is what you are trying to demonize. However, I know of no health insurance company that supported child prostitution.

    Most retired people are on Medicare, which is government run health insurance. It IS the point. I agree, they do have problems. Big ones that the Democrats want to visit on all of us.

    And a State Tax Refund? They are all pushed out and no refund is being held up for lack of money in Virginia. California, yes. But the one in charge of the VA DOT is the Governor and the Treasurer. So, I would guess Tim Kaine and Jody Wagner are who they blame. Democrats all. Delegate O'Bannon has nothing at all to do with the Dept. of Taxation. He is a lawmaker, part of the Legislative Branch. The Va Dept of Taxation is part of the Executive branch of State Government.

    And if anyone has filed a tax return and it has been several weeks, they need to call the Dept. of Taxation to find out what is wrong. My refund took just over a week. I filed electronically.

    Delegate O'Bannon can give them the same info I just gave you, but he is not authorized to write a tax refund.

    You really need to find out how things really work. This comment makes me think you are in High School, or perhaps Jr. HS. Seriously, this is basic stuff.

  13. Funny thing Tom is I had three tell me they called O'Bannon's office about it. None of these folks applied electronically; go figure they are of that generation that is not exactly up to speed with technology and they paper filed before the deadline back in May.
    passing the buck to the Gov or anyone else is exactly why the Shields campaign has resonated. O'Bannon has taken these folks for granted at the polls and they know it. He needs to step up and be there for his constituents. I have family in the 73rd who traditionally vote Republican and they are wavering/waffling. Shields has visited the house three times and all O'bannon has done is leave a piece of lit on the steps (last week).
    Funny about the "basic stuff"….who writes the codes Tom. Who are people when government is not working for them supposed to call on….evidently not your boy! Again, who do you think they are going to blame exactly??? You really don't know anyhting about voters (politics) now do you?? Perception is reality in an election cycle.

  15. Tom White says:

    Look, Scotty. If Shields has visited your relative's house 3 times, he is walking the same hood over and over. He has only knocked on 5,000 doors as of the U of R debate. I have that on video. If he wants to go to the same ones over and over and neglect the majority of the voters, that's fine.
    So, I exposed that as a lie.

    Now, let's expose another.

    Send me the names and numbers of the three who have not received their tax refunds and I will see that they receive help. I can't go to any Delegate or Senator, because of the privacy act. But I can advise them who to contact. Or, Dr. O'Bannon's office could do the same thing.

    But you are claiming he should know the status of 90K citizens tax refunds?

    You won't send me their information because you fabricated the whole thing.

    Let me tell you this. If Shields is elected and someone's house is being broken into, should they give Tom a call? He writes the laws, right? Or, better yet, he should know everything and should just show up and save them.

    I think you have been hanging around with Shields too much. His lies and distortions have rubbed off on you.

    Get me those names. I'm waiting. But this will prove you are a liar again.

  16. There is more than one team, as in O'Bannon case, canvassing the 73rd on behalf of the Shields team. They also have a younger, energetic college age group hitting the streets as well covering the Henrico portion.
    If you would like the names I will get you them for you and I have just the one to set you up with. A retired State employee from the 73rd that would love to inform you all about what he sees happening in his portion of the 73rd. You know real people vote Tom. Email me your email address and number to superfoodspcs@comcast.net and I will put him/them in contact with you regarding the matter resolution. I would be interested in learning exactly how I am a liar…

  18. Thank you for supplying the contact info. I have forwarded the info to those who may be interested in taking you up on your offer. I leave it into their hands whether they wish to move forward. I feel more comfortable with them taking the front. if they choice to enlist your assistance its 100% up to them to make the first contact. I will provide with a contact who gave permission for me to give you the info.
    BTW word is its alot more than 5,000 doors thus far….
