Tom Shields called for Delegate O’Bannon to repudiate Bob McDonnell, and it seems he has some repudiating of his own he needs to do. What’s fair for the goose and all.
We asked Democrat Tom Shields to repudiate Congressman Bobby Scott’s vote to continue funding Acorn. Scott was one of the 75 Democrats that voted to continue funding for Acorn in spite of the many videos released to date showing a systematic pattern of the Community Organizer group at 5 offices (so far) around the country to assist in child prostitution and tax evasion. Even funding political campaigns with the ill gotten gains from prostitution.
These explosive videos can be seen at BigGovernment.com. If you watch the Mainstream Media, you may not have seen them. You need to watch these videos to understand the vile and disgusting advice these Acorn workers are giving out.
We asked Shields to respond and to repudiate his mentor Bobby Scott for supporting a group that does these horrible things.
And what is Shields response? He blames Delegate O’Bannon for exposing him. In an email he said:
In an email to supporters on Friday, O’Bannon linked to this blog post accusing me of supporting child prostitution. As the parents of three young girls, Anne and I are disgusted by this vile accusation that goes well beyond differences in politics or ideology.
Accusing Shields of supporting child prostitution? Hardly. Read the post. Here is what was said:
So far, Tom Shields has been silent on the Acorn matter. Is Shields in favor of prostitution, especially child prostitution?
It is time for Tom Shields to come clean and let us know if he is still a radical, molded by Bobby Scott, or if he will repudiate Scott for such an outrageous vote in support of the exploitation of children.
Shields was asked a question. Are you in favor of prostitution, especially child prostitution. There are no accusations in the post, and Shields knows that. You want to be a politician, Tom. You need to let the voters know where you stand. We are asking you to explain, in plain English, your feelings about Scott’s vote and Acorn’s actions. You have not done so. In an email, posted on Lowell Feld’s Blue Virginia, Shields failed to repudiate Scott, and also failed to answer the question. But he remembered to ask for money. Several times.
The questions still remain. Will Shields repudiate Scott for his vote, or does he hold Acorn in high esteem. If Shields prefers, we can ask the question at his next Town Hall meeting.
The voters of the 73rd district need to know if Shields is a left wing radical that will fund organizations like Acorn despite their horrible dealings with Virginian’s hard earned money. Rather than express outrage at Delegate O’Bannon for blowing the whistle on Shields’ connections to a radical congressman that wants to allow Acorn to continue to assist in obtaining housing for prostitution, Tom Shields needs to address the real issue.
And voters in the 73rd District need to ask themselves if someone like Tom Shields, that has a problem with O’Bannon pointing out his radical associations, but is careful not to speak out against Acorn and Scott’s vote would work in the best interest of voters. And to try to turn this into a fund raising venture rather than repudiate Acorn speaks volumes on where Shields’ stands.
Answer the question, Tom. Voters deserve to know!
Will you repudiate Acorn and Scott for his vote, or continue to blame O’Bannon for exposing your radical history. Are you a New Generation of Independent Leadership as you claim, or simply using the “Title” to hide a radical agenda. Here’s your chance to lead and show you are truly Independent.
So far, all we see is a Bobby Scott Protege.
