Here are a few national and Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Tuesday, August 15. By the way, the cover photo is by Boyd Walker of “a candlelight Quaker vigil in front of Richard Spencer’s National Policy Institute [in Alexandria last night] [in which] he came out to talk to us with a bunch of his fascist buddies.” I’ll post the video of that in the comments section. It’s pathetic as you’d expect.

  • Karrie Delaney Wins Endorsement of Virginia Education Association

    CHANTILLY, Va. — Community leader Karrie Delaney today announced the Virginia Education Association has endorsed her campaign to represent Virginia’s 67th House District, which stretches from Chantilly and South Riding to Fair Lakes and Oakton.

    “Every General Assembly session, lawmakers are faced with decisions that put special interests over the students and families they represent,” said VEA President Jim Livingston, who also serves as chair of the VEA Fund. “With Karrie Delaney as Delegate, constituents of the 67th District will know their best interests are being represented, especially when it comes to making public education the priority it should be.”

    “I’m honored to be endorsed by the Virginia Education Association,” stated Delaney. “As the mother of a 7-year-old and 4-year-old, I’m dedicated to bringing home our fair share of education funding to lower class sizes, provide top-notch resources in our classrooms, and retain the best teachers with fair pay and benefits to ensure our children receive a world class education.”

    Trump today uses presser to re-frame his blame aka”many sides,” coddle racists with his support of the alt-right, argues with reporters, defend violence by white nationalists, and then receives the praise of DuKKKe for defending Nazis in Charlottesville! Un-American, unhinged, deplorable, childish, ignorant, hateful!!! wtf
