In 2018, Loudoun County accounted for by far the most votes in VA10, approaching half of the Congressional District’s total (see screenshot, below). So you’d think a candidate for Congress in VA10 would know how to spell L-O-U-D-O-U-N. Especially if they *live* there, themselves? But…nope. See below for how VA10 GOP nominee Aliscia Andrews spelled the largest jurisdiction in the Congressional District: L-O-U-D-E-N.
Of course, not being able to spell “Loudoun” isn’t great when you’re running to represent it in Congress, but it’s not the worst thing in the world either. The problem with Aliscia Andrews, other than being a part of Trump’s Republican Party, is that:
- She has repeatedly campaigned in VA10, including presumably in “Louden,” while not wearing a mask and not socially distancing. Very, very irresponsible.
- On September 19, she helped kick off the Republicans’ voter intimidation event at the Fairfax County Government Center.
- Last weekend, at a Fairfax NAACP candidates’ forum, she had all kinds of, uh, “interesting” things to say, such as that COVID-19 has a “99% survival rate, which is a blessing“; that a big part of the police brutality problem supposedly is Black communities having a “negative relationship with the police,” that we “really stop that negative persona” and “we really to show both sides a better presentation,” as the “Black community is not always represented in the best light, and…sometimes that makes it so much worse.” The hell?!?
- So yeah, not being able to spell the name of the largest county in VA10 is not Andrews’ biggest problem. Go Jennifer Wexton!
