Shifting gears to state politics for a while, John Brownlee – candidate for Attorney General – announced that he was “the most Conservative candidate EVER to run for statewide office” (Crystal Clear Conservative).
Is that so, John?
Putting aside the fact that Cuccinelli is more pro-life than Brownlee, I’d like to know where Brownlee was during the special session, when Senator Cuccinelli was among the leaders in fighting against proposed tax increases in both parties.
Before anyone tries to complain the Attorneys General don’t deal with tax issues, I would remind them that the incumbent AG is still touting his role in the HB3202 debacle from last year. After the special session, I am sure Ken Cuccinelli will not repeat that mistake.
I have no such assurances with Brownlee.

John Brownlee, who is running for Virginia’s Attorney General in 2009, has declared himself to be the most Conservative candidate EVER to run for statewide office. Huh?!?
During a speech before the Colonial Republican Women’s Club Annual Fall BBQ yesterday, Brownlee made this false claim and declaring that he is the most conservative candidate running for Attorney General.
Do we really know Brownlee’s stances on issues? Right now, Brownlee has made no known stances on whether he is pro-life, against illegal immigration or where he stands on tort reform cases.
Since he is not so concrete on his stances, how can he declare himself the most conservative candidate? I guess, if we all wanted to be like Brownlee, we too could say that we are the most (fill in the blank) candidate ever!
