Video: Waynesboro GOP Chair Touts Ben Cline’s Extreme Anti-Choice Position, but Is “shaky when it comes to casting a ballot for Corey Stewart”

Check out the following video, particularly at around 1:25 and 4:40, as the Waynesboro Republican Chair, Ken Adams has some…er, “interesting” things to say.

First, watch at 1:25 as Adams tries to articulate why he supports VA-06 Republican nominee Ben Cline. Basically, Adams explains, Cline is a founder of the hard-right “Conservative Caucus in the Virginia House of Delegates” and also “pro life” (aka, virulently against a woman’s right to choose what to do with her own body), even going so far as to “[carry] a piece of legislation for an organization called the Day of Tears.” This is a group that believes that Roe v Wade is a “legal fiction” and that the anniversary of the day the Supreme Court issued its Roe v Wade ruling (January 22, 1973) should be “a day of national mourning.” So yeah, that’s the guy who Republicans nominated in VA-06, someone who is far right on basically every issue, and someone who absolutely should NOT be elected to Congress on November 6 (an infinitely better choice is Democratic nominee Jennifer Lewis).

Next, jump to 4:40, as Adams is asked why anyone should vote for his party’s U.S. Senate nominee, neo-Confederate Corey Stewart. Note that Adams struggles to provide any reason(s), basically rambling on about Stewart’s hard-ass position on immigration. As the “Breaking Through News” journalist puts it, Adams “was shaky when it comes to casting a ballot for Corey Stewart.” So yeah, even someone as hard right as the Waynesboro Republican Committee Chair isn’t in the least bit enthused about neo-Confederate Corey, struggling mightily to think of SOME reason to vote for him. So here’s a much better idea for Virginia Republicans like Ken Adams: vote for Tim Kaine instead on November 6 — or leave that spot on the ballot blank.
