What Is It With Loudoun Republicans?!? Dick Black on Spousal Rape, "Nighties," etc.

As this video illustrates, Dick Black is truly appalling, even by the low, low standards of Loudoun County Republicans (last seen sending out a "light-hearted" email depicting Barack Obama with a bullet hole in his head). As for Dick Black, you can learn more about him here. Also, you can read Dick "Plastic Fetus" Black's bizarre rantings about gays in the military here ("there was a young fellow who went to the showers at night, there were two homosexuals lurking -- they were also basic trainees - and they strangled him with a towel and forced him to submit to, you know, things that we won't talk about"). The thought of this individual in the Virginia State Senate is truly frightening. Fortunately, there's an excellent alternative: moderate Democratic businessman Shawn Mitchell, who I strongly urge the voters of the 13th Senate district to elect next Tuesday. If not, then Black will be Back, and it won't be pretty.

Mitchell campaign press release (0.00 / 0)
Video Release: Dick Black Fails Virginia Women
Career Politician Doesn't Stand Up Against Spousal Rape
Ashburn, VA - Today, the Shawn Mitchell for State Senate campaign released a web video "How Out of Touch Is Dick Black?" highlighting career politician Dick Black's extreme position on spousal rape. You can view the video at

On February 7, 2002, while the Virginia General Assembly was debating HB 488, Dick Black took to the floor and said, "I do not know how on a earth you can validly get a conviction of a husband/wife rape where they are living together, sleeping in the same bed, she's in a nightie, and so forth, there is no injury, no separation or anything."

"Dick Black has an extreme agenda that would put Virginia on a reckless, and far right trajectory," said Mitchell Campaign Manager Dominic Gabello. "Sadly, Dick Black's refusal to stand up to spousal rape is only the tip of the ice berg when it comes to his rigid, radical ideology. Black has voted to block birth control for adult women, allow dangerous firearms on school property, and criminalize safe abortion procedures.

"No reasonable person believes that a man can force himself on his spouse, with no legal repercussions. Unfortunately Dick Black is so radical that he sees nothing legally wrong with spousal rape. Voters in Northern Virginia need to know the consequences of Black's extreme beliefs."
