The Garbage Sam Rasoul Had to Overcome to Win His Race Last Night


The following flyer (click to “embiggen”) is the type of garbage Sam Rasoul had to put up with in his race (which he won overwhelminngly last night) for House of Delegates in Roanoke City. Other than the Islamophobia and anti-Arab insinuations, this flyer – paid for by the Republican Party of Virginia, no less – is utterly idiotic in another sense: it turns out that Yaqub Mirza and his company Mar-Jac Investments have donated heavily to Virginia Republicans, like Sen. Dick Black, Del. Tom Rust, and Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, over the years. So…if it’s a terrible thing that Mirza is (supposedly) “linked to ‘known Al Qaeda financiers'” when it comes to Sam Rasoul, then presumably it’s also a terrible thing when it comes to Dick Black, Ken Cuccinelli, and Tom Rust? Yeah, I know, it’s called “logic,” not something the Republican Party tends to care about. Anyway, I’m glad to see the voters of Roanoke City overwhelmingly rejecting this trash campaigning by the Republican Party of Virginia. Nice job, Roanoke City voters! 🙂
