Aside from being a highly responsive and effective public official, Del. Danica Roem (D-HD13) is clearly a courageous and inspirational person, as the following tweets demonstrate. She’s also a constant reminder of how much voting and elections matter. Just consider that the individual Roem defeated in 2017 when she was first elected to the Virginia House of Delegates was none other than the raging homophobe and far-right extremist Bob Marshall, aka “Sideshow Bob.” For just a flavor of what “Sideshow Bob” Marshall was all about, check out the following links, and just consider the massive change for the better the 13th House of Delegates – and all of us in Virginia, really – enjoyed when Danica Roem defeated him. And remember to vote – Democratic, of course – in every single election.
