Well, the party in downtown Richmond has ended and Reverend E.W. Jackson has shaken the GOP establishment to its core and pulled off the political equivalent of an earthquake and emerged as the GOP’s nominee for Lt. Governor.
Jackson has become famous for his videos urging black Christians to leave the Democratic Party,
compared Planned Parenthood to the KKK, etc., etc., etc. So Jackson will probably spend the next 6 months barnstorming the state, speaking out against The Democratic Party, its candidates and those who support them who he thinks are all abortion loving, God hating, liberals who promote the homosexual lifestyle in their quest to create a secular society.
The one group he seems to leave out in his rantings in his videos are the fornicators. So I did some research and thought I would give the reverend a list of 36 bible verse quotes about fornicators that perhaps he could use in his next video or political ad.
I like this one myself:
“Woe to him who makes his neighbors drink- you pour out your wrath and make them drunk, in order to gaze at their nakedness”
Anyway, I did some digging around and it seems that the reverend is a financial train wreck, racking up a bankrupcy and tax liens, some as recent as 2012. Now a lot of conservatives bloggers have defended him, stating that he came clean on these issues, but I’m not sure voters are going to be so forgiving on these issues. Jackson’s inability to keep his personal and business finances in order, something we are all expected to do, will be a huge issue.
Tom Gear heads up a tea party group in Hampton and on his website, took the reverend to the “woodshed” over his financials dealings this past Monday, May 13, 2013, and it’s pretty obvious not many delegates to the GOP convention read Gear’s posting. As noted on Gear’s website, the reverend has had major financials problems – check these out:
1) On May 8, 2012, EW Jackson Sr. was issued a warrant in debt for not paying his personal property taxes.
2) On September 9, 2011, EW Jackson Sr. was issued a warrant in debt for a lawsuit involving his church.
3) On September 2, 2008, EW Jackson Sr. was issued a garnishment from a lawsuit involving his church.
4) On April 6, 2007, EW Jackson Sr. was served a unlawful detainer from a lawsuit involving his church.
Read Gear’s entire posting here:
But there is even more stuff out there, done by Gear doing a simple search on Lexis/Nexis, showing the reverend with about 20 tax liens (Both federal tax liens and State tax liens in MA) totaling $185,000.00 that run from the 1980’s through the 1990’s. The list of these liens can be found in a link in Gear’s posting in the 4th paragraph. Oh, and a special shout out to Gear for conducting our opposition research!
There looks like there is a lot more stuff out there and hopefully opposition research will turn it up. In the meantime, I’ll be watching the GOP ticket today as they are supposed to be appearing together in Virgina Beach and Fairfax. It should be interesting so stay tuned fellow fornicators!!
