Hero: Tammie

While Ed Gillespie continues his bullsh*t attacks on those who have paid their debt to society, individuals like Tammie have shown their strength and courage—qualities Ed Gillespie clearly lacks.

Zero: Ed Gillespie

It’s easy to win when you cheat, right Ed? This week The Washington Post looked at Ed Gillespie’s influence on redrawing district maps not just in Virginia, but across the country. This is called redistricting and “He who controls redistricting can control Congress.”

Gillespie traveled across the country before the 2010 redistricting to flip statehouse seats and change the structure of Congressional districts.

We, however, agree with President Obama:

“We shouldn’t have politicians choosing their voters; we should have voters choosing those who would serve them.”
