Not that this is a big surprise or anything, but Virginia Republican Congresscritters are absolutely horrendous when it comes to protecting the Chesapeake Bay, streams and rivers, wetlands, our drinking water, etc. The only question, really, is HOW bad they are. Here’s the answer.

Rob Wittman (R-1): Grade of “D”

Scott Rigell (R-2): Grade of “F”

Randy Forbes (R-4): Grade of “F”

Robert Hurt (R-5): Grade of “F”

Bob Goodlatte (R-6): Grade of “F”

Eric Cantor (R-7): Grade of “F”

Morgan Griffith (R-9): Grade of “F”

Frank Wolf (R-10): Grade of “D”

In sum, if you want clean water, healthy rivers, a thriving Chesapeake Bay, etc., then DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES vote for any of the aforementioned Republican’ts. In stark contrast, vote for Democrats like Bobby Scott (Grade of “A+”), Jim Moran (Grade of “A+”), and Gerry Connolly (Grade of “A+), as well as any other Democrat on the ballot. Sad to say, but that’s the way it is these days: our environment, which should NEVER have been politicized, has become completely polarized between Republicans (in the pocket of polluters, science deniers, etc.) and Democrats (not perfect, but infinitely better). Sigh…
