Nor should she in the face of what the left says about her.
A couple of interesting things - everyone standing around Chap have one thing in common--DEMOCRAT. Ray Morrough, himself locked ina tight race that was unepected; Steve Shannon, a Democrat delegate; and Marshal Thielen who heads the Fairfax County Police Association which--SHOCKER--has endorsed Chap Petersen.
This is all an inside job, a fake controversy to make up for Chap's plummeting poll numbers. This event sounded more like a fundraiser than a press conference, Chap surrounded by DEMOCRATS who are looking to help him win here. What makes this so hypocritcal is that the things done and said about Jeannemarie on a regular basis by Chap's supporters at RK and NLS--and don't think he's not dialed in because he is--its galling.
And if I can add another thing. Lets talk about "fair game" in terms of Chap's family. This is a stupid controversy becasue nothing was said ABOUT his wife or kids. There names were just on the paper that is PUBLIC record. Nothing is said about them, their pictures aren't shown, and they aren't being attacked. Jeannemarie says NOTHING about Chap's family, nothing--which is more than can be said about his suppoters. As I've proven, Chap uses and puts his family in his mailings so its not like nobody knows who they are or that they have been shielded through the entire process. Again, nobody is advocating attacking anyones family--all I'm pointing out is that Jeannemarie DID NOT ATTACK CHAP'S FAMILY in anyways. All the information on that mailer, again, is PUBLIC RECORD. The whole point of the mailer is to prove that Chap says one thing and does another when it comes to working for lobbyists while being an elected official. Chap doesn't want people to see that, so he makes it about his family, which by the way he now admits the hysterical ravings of his blogger-mouthpiece that his house was being inundated with angry calls--was at worst exagerated.
