Definitely check out this conversation on Women – Politics – Virginia with former Del. Lashrecse Aird, who’s running against VA Sen. Joe Morrissey in the June 20 Democratic primary for the State Senate in SD13 (solid blue; Henrico, Prince George, Petersburg, etc.). Here are a couple quotes by Aird about Morrissey:

  • “I’ve never run against someone where people were legitimately afraid. And let me make it really plain: I have people who call me and say, is anybody else listening? I have people who will walk up to me and they’re like whispering…legitimate fear. What does that say when people are not politically afraid, but personally afraid of this individual to the point where they almost don’t want to share what they know, what they’ve seen?”
  • “…I get so frustrated when I think about someone like my opponent who has the audacity to even be on the same ballot with me. It doesn’t come close when you think about actual progress that so many others, inclusive of myself, have made. And this person who literally torments other leaders, who threatens…all sorts of things, but is just given a total pass, given a total pass. Yeah, I’ll leave that there, because it just gets worse.”

And one comment by Sheri Shannon – “an award-winning communications strategist, community liaison, environmental advocate and owner of Shannon Strategies (shannonstrategies.com), a communications firm specializing in campaigns for the greater good” – who was the person interviewing Aird:

  • “This is a person who has a history of criminal and violent behavior in which there have been multiple disbarments, arrests, fist fights, and also this pattern of sexually predatory behavior. And for me, as one of his former constituents, knowing that this person is currently holding office…I find a lot of things to be enraging about this, but I’m also disappointed  at how a lot of political leaders, including those within the party, are silent about this.”
