My reply to Brian Moran


    I assume that most of you received the same mealy-mouthed, “we fought the good fight” email from DPVA Chair Brian Moran in which he talked about how we need to work really, really hard to lobby for private colleges — OOOOPPPSSSS  — meant to say “about how we need to work really, really heard to elect Democrats next time.”

    I replied to the email, knowing, of course, that neither he nor anyone else at DPVA will see my response.  

    My reply:

    Mr. Moran:

    Thank you for your letter.  However, speaking as a life-long Democrat, I feel it’s time for a new chairman of the DPVA.  You presided over a disaster made worse by the DPVA failure to contest every House of Delegates and Senate seat.  We weren’t beaten.  We surrendered.

    Please do the honorable thing and resign.
