Christine “I’m not a witch” O’Donnell’s Former Campaign Manager Sues to Get Newt on VA GOP Ballot


If you thought this whole Virginia Republican primary fiasco couldn’t get even more ridiculous…well, actually it could and it has! Check this out.

A Virginia attorney and tea party activist is seeking to have Newt Gingrich’s name placed on the state’s Super Tuesday primary ballot.

Attorney Jonathon Moseley of Reston, Va., says he filed the suit Thursday in the Circuit Court of Richmond County. It contends that Gingrich met the requirement of filing 10,000 signatures and that many of those were improperly excluded. The suit also takes issue with how the Republican Party of Virginia determined that not enough signatures were valid.

So, who’s this Jonathon Moseley guy? For starters, there’s this:

According to documents filed with the Federal Election Commission by O’Donnell’s failed 2008 Senate campaign and by her current campaign, Jon Moseley has worked for O’Donnell in both of these Senate bids. In a recent statement issued in support of her and disseminated by ChristianNewsWire, Moseley described himself as the manager of her unsuccessful 2008 campaign against then-Sen. Joe Biden. Moseley has also served as a campaign treasurer for O’Donnell during that campaign.

Of course, we don’t want to prejudge anyone, but let’s get real here: anyone who worked for national laughingstock, Christine “I’m not a witch” O’Donnell, has got to be at least a bit suspect. In this case – no shocker here – Jonathon Moseley does not disappoint. For instance, Moseley’s the author of the fine piece of investigative journalism (ha – not!!!), Is Barack Hussein Obama (Still) A Muslim? According to Moseley, the answer to that question is an emphatic YES, despite the fact that Obama has been a Christian, is a Christian, and likely will be a Christian the rest of his life (not that any of this should matter, of course, it’s all utterly disgusting and bigoted trash). Oddly, Moseley simultaneously believes that Obama’s a closet Commie (“Has Obama truly broken with the forces of international communism, which had so much influence over him?“). I guess in these right-wing nutjobs’ minds, “commies” and Muslims just sort of blur together. {UPDATE: It turns out that someone else, writing on the same page, directly underneath Moseley’s article, claimed that Obama is a closet Communist. It was NOT Mr. Moseley. I apologize for the inadvertent error.} Admittedly, it’s easy to conflate an atheistic philosophy of dialectical materialism with a monotheistic faith professing that “There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.” Very similar, don’t you see? (snark)

On and on it goes, into raving/drooling/frothing-at-the-mouth la-la-land. Oh, by the way, this guy’s now suing Christine “I’m not a witch” O’Donnell for $18,250 in money he says is owed to him for “research” and other work he did for the non-witch. And now he’s also suing to get Newt Gingrich on the ballot in Virginia. As I said, if you thought this whole Virginia Republican primary fiasco couldn’t get even more ridiculous…oh yes it can!!! LOL
