I got this comment about my continuing support of Bill Janis for VA Senate in the Twelfth district (I sure am glad I didn’t write about something boring like sex or something) from what was purported to be my good acquaintance Senator Tom Garrett:

I can say a few things, first, I have no axe to grind against any 
candidate in the 12th.  Second, I wholeheartedly and unequivocally support Bill 
Janis as the only PROVEN Constitutional Conservative in the field...  Janis was 
quoting Jefferson and applying the Founders' ideals and Constitutional 
principles before the Tea Party as we know it existed.  Finally, I can say 
without reservation that no person has approached me nor would I be interested 
in primarying my friend, Congressman Brat...  My respect and admiration for the 
Congressman not withstanding, I am not even currently a resident of the 
district...  And I know all of this because I am Tom Garrett.

Now I have known Tom since he and Rusty McGuire (now THE Commonwealth’s Attorney for Louisa County – putting sex offenders away BTW) were Assistant Attorney Generals in the computer crimes unit.  So I decided to do a troll check!

I got confirmation from his legislative aide, Kevin Reynolds, that this is indeed posted by Senator Garrett.  Now this is NOT an endorsement – it is just a comment answering the claim that somehow Bill Janis has morphed into an establishment Republican.  There are indeed several fine candidates in the race.  But you have it from a good solid source:   Janis was tea party before tea party was tea party.

I should have in day or two my interview with Bill Janis.  Stay tuned.

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