PW County Dems Chair Calls Del. Jackson Miller (R) a White Supremacist; Dem HoD Candidate Not Pleased

FYI, Harry Wiggins is the Prince William County Democratic Committee Chair Del. Jackson Miller (R) currently represents HD 50 (Manassas City, parts of PW County) but is now running in a special election for PW County Clerk of the Circuit Court; Lee Carter is the Democratic candidate for HD-50. Personally, I view Miller as hard right, extreme, and basically a Trump Republican, but I’m not sure it helps to call him a white supremacist. No doubt, though, Miller has been very harsh against undocument immigrants and also virulently anti-LGBT, among MANY other faults, and absolutely should NOT be elected Clerk of the Circuit Court. Instead, I urge PW County voters to elect Democrat Jackie Smith on April 18.


P.S. For his part, Jackson Miller is not pleased (shocker that the bully can dish out but not take it), whining, “My hope was that the media would not report on his shameless political stunt” and that “Creating fake news and attacking his character is the Democrats’ best chance of winning.” (rolls eyes)

P.P.S. Now hearing that at least one more Democratic candidate will probably be entering the HD-50 race.

  • If you’re going to throw out “white supremacy” for everyone who is extreme right, it will diminish the charge when it’s used against someone who actually is a racist. We therefore have to be extremely careful when we use that charge.

    • Let’s compromise and just call Jackson Miller what he is: a homophobe, xenophobe and all-around a**hole.

  • Kenny Allen Boddye

    I sent out a press release about this earlier today. Here’s that part that matters most:

    “Let me be crystal clear: Harry’s comments do not reflect my views, the views of our campaign, or the views of the Prince William County Democratic Committee,” Boddye continued. “Our commonwealth gets the first large-scale electoral answer to the divisive 2016 election season, and that answer should be that we stand for progress and solidarity.”

  • We should be standing up for our values and ideas with facts, not engaging in ad hominem attacks. It’s not who we are. We are better than that.

    • Would you agree that it’s accurate to call Jackson Miller a xenophobe and homophobe, among many other faults? Those two seem indisputable to me…

  • Clerk of the Court candidate Jackie Smith:

    I don’t know what inspired Mr. Wiggins recent statement about Jackson Miller and Donald Trump. I don’t know Delegate Miller personally and I am not interested attacking his character. For me this campaign isn’t about Jackson Miller or political mudslinging, it’s about making sure that our community has effective local government in our courthouse. As someone who lives here and works in our legal community, I have dedicated my professional life to preserving the integrity of our courts and to the fair administration of justice. I am running for Clerk to get politics out of the courthouse to ensure a fair, efficient and responsive court.
