Lately, Barbara Comstock has taken to declaring how she is focused on supposedly sensible, bipartisan solutions for Northern Virginia, a strange posture for the woman who headed the RNC’s effort to destroy Vice President Al Gore’s reputation and was a close associate of the infamous Monica Goodling – of DOJ US Attorney scandal. For details on this part of Comstock's history, see here.
But as we already know, Barbara Comstock is anything but a moderate. For the gory details of her extreme voting record, see here.
Upon closer scrutiny, Comstock’s record gets even worse: She has identified herself as a dedicated admirer of Judge Robert Bork, one of the most extreme arch-conservative legal thinkers, whose views were so far out of the mainstream that his Supreme Court nomination was rejected by a 58-42 vote in the 1980s. Comstock was the chief patron of a bill in the House of Delegates, HR 67 honoring Judge Bork – despite his reputation. See here
But did you know what Comstock's been up to right here in the Commonwealth? Thanks to Pamela Danner's campaign we're beginning to learn, and it isn't a pretty picture. Comstock just brought the governor of one of the states with the worst quality of life -- Haley Barbour of Mississippi -- here to Northern VA to fundraise for her. See the following press release.

Comstock welcomes Governor with disastrous record on education, health and quality of life
McLean, VA - Tonight Delegate Barbara Comstock is having a fundraiser with the Governor of Mississippi, Haley Barbour, in Washington, D.C. While it's not unusual for Del. Comstock to look to conservative national Republicans and the Tea Party to raise the money she needs, to distract voters from her out-of-touch record, she has chosen a Governor who runs a state with some of the lowest performance measures on quality of life issues.
