    Weekly Standard ^ | October 31, 2014 | William Kristal
    Two new polls show Republican Ed Gillespie closing in on Democratic incumbent Mark Warner in the Virginia Senate race. Christopher Newport University, which had Warner up 12 points earlier in the month in its survey, now has Warner's lead down to 7. More provocatively, The Daily Caller reports on a new poll from Vox Populi that has Gillespie down only 4 points.

    PJM ^ | October 29, 2014 | Bryan Preston
    An election integrity watchdog group is suing the state of Maryland, alleging that it has discovered massive and ongoing fraudulent voting by non-U.S. citizens in one county. But because of the way that the non-citizens are able to cast votes in elections, the fraud is likely happening in every single county and subdivision across the state. The group believes that the illegal voting has been happening for years. The group, Virginia Voters Alliance, says that it compared how voters in Frederick County filled out jury duty statements compared with their voting records. The group’s investigation found that thousands of people...

    An election-watch group is suing Maryland over the alleged presence of noncitizens on the state’s voting rolls. The lawsuit, filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Baltimore, asserts that individuals who opted out of jury duty because they were not legal U.S. residents have cast ballots in at least three Maryland elections. Based on the number of potential unqualified voters identified in Frederick County, up to 7 percent of Maryland’s registered voters could be illegal immigrants, according to estimates. “Their continued appearance on these lists makes it nearly impossible for Maryland law to prevent these declared noncitizens from casting votes...

At one of these events in Nebraska on Monday evening, Romney unleashed a scathing assault on the "terrible" Obama administration. It was like a Republican standup special with a constant stream of jokes and barbs about Obama's policies and leadership abilities. Romney began by declaring he didn't care about upsetting Obama.

    A seven-year-old law created after congressional Republicans pressured lobbying firms to hire their former staffers could be invoked against Democratic Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia. Earlier this year, when then-Virginia state senator Phillip Puckett was considering resigning so his daughter could become a state judge without a conflict of interest, Warner intervened in an effort to convince him to stay. In an hour-long conversation, Warner described other job opportunities he could help the state senator's daughter get instead of the state judgeship, Puckett’s son told investigators....

    One day after governors in New York, New Jersey and Illinois imposed a mandatory 21-day quarantine on medical workers returning from Ebola-stricken countries in West Africa, public health officials in the District, Maryland and Virginia did not follow suit Saturday, intensifying a national debate over how to prevent the spread of the disease. Health officials are working to develop a consistent approach for the area around the nation’s capital. Joxel Garcia, director of the D.C. Department of Health, said that a mandatory quarantine was not scientifically justified and could have a chilling effect on the medical personnel, many of them...

    A Virginia farmer is claiming that an environmental group is trying to drive her off her property with overzealous zoning enforcement and invasive inspections. Martha Boneta explained to Steve Doocy on “Fox and Friends” this week that when she bought the 64-acre farm eight years ago, she agreed to an easement, which allows the Piedmont Environmental Council to visit the property to make sure no laws are being broken. “We never dreamed in a million years that we would encounter so much abuse of power,” Boneta said. “It’s been eight years of invasive, abusive inspections that go far beyond what’s...

It was actually a group of volunteers for the College Republican Federation of Virginia who posed for a photo after knocking on doors for Ed Gillespie, the GOP senate hopeful in the Old Dominion.

    Washingtonians and visitors seeking to attend Veterans Day ceremonies or to pay their respects to the fallen at Arlington National Cemetery this year will need to allocate extra time in getting there. That's because the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority has cancelled all Blue line rail service on the federal holiday, and it's the only line that services the Arlington National Cemetery Metro train station. The public transportation authority isn't shutting down for mandated safety repairs, which have plagued the agency since a 2009 fatal accident. Rather, service is being cancelled for "a major concert." The concert, billed as "The...

    CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Judith White, who runs a research lab at the University of Virginia School of Medicine, submitted a proposal to the National Institutes of Health to test potential countermeasures against Ebola in March — just as Liberia was confirming its first two cases of the deadly virus. The project, a collaboration of the university, the Army and a drug company, showed promising early results: Mice injected with two compounds — one used in a drug to treat female infertility, the other found in a breast cancer drug — showed immunity to Ebola. But a few months later, not...

    Anyone flying to the United States from Ebola-affected countries in West Africa must enter the country through one of five airports screening for the disease, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh C. Johnson said Tuesday as the Obama administration stepped up precautions to stop the spread of the virus. Last week, the government instituted temperature checks for West Africans arriving at Kennedy International in New York, Newark Liberty International, Washington Dulles International, O’Hare International in Chicago, and Hartsfield-Jackson International in Atlanta. The five airports already account for 94 percent of all arrivals from the affected countries, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. A...

The five airports are JFK, Newark, Dulles, Atlanta and O'Hare. This new mandate will go into effect Wednesday.

    This week, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected gay-marriage appeals from Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin, in essence allowing lower courts to legalize same-sex couples. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, an institution that has vigorously opposed gay marriage for some time now, conceded that the political battle over marriage is over. “As far as the civil law is concerned,” the Mormon church admitted, “the courts have spoken.” Actually, nothing is over until God says it’s over. At least, this is my understanding of how religion operates. So though I don’t want to accuse Mormons of being a...

    The race for U.S. Senate in Virginia has not been a particularly competitive one. In a year in which Democratic incumbents across the country are finding themselves in hot water, Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) seems to have escaped the voters’ wrath. The revelation that Warner has been caught up in a federal investigation following the admission that he had engaged in quid pro quo discussions with a state senator in order to persuade him to not quit the Senate and surrender that institution’s control to Republicans has, however, upended the conventional wisdom surrounding the race for Senate in Old Dominion.

    John Warner, the retired Republican senator, has cut a strong testimonial commercial endorsing Virginia Democratic Sen. Mark Warner for reelection, becoming the latest former member of the chamber to make an appearance in this year’s elections. The younger Warner challenged the elder Warner, no relation, back in 1996. But they became closer over the years and developed a good working relationship when Mark Warner became governor in 2002. Mark Warner picked up his seat six years ago upon John Warner’s retirement. This is the first time John Warner, now 87, has either endorsed a Democrat for elected office in Virginia...

    Sen. Mark Warner (D., Va.) floundered during a debate Monday night when asked about allegations that he offered a judgeship position to the daughter of Virginia State Senator Phillip Puckett to convince Puckett to remain in the Senate. “I’ve been friends with Phillip Puckett and his family for 20 years,” Warner said. “And when I reached out to his son before I talked to Phillip to explore possible options going forward, I didn’t offer anyone any job, nor would I offer any job. And that is the fact.”

    A local clinic and state officials are evaluating whether a patient who had recently traveled to West Africa and appeared at clinic offices in South Richmond Monday is at risk of Ebola infection. “We immediately put the person in isolation and immediately called the health department,” said Julie Bilodeau of CrossOver Ministry, a faith-based free clinic whose patient population includes many immigrants. A sign posted on the clinic's front door Monday afternoon read: "Clinic closed for emergency.” It was not immediately clear what precautions clinic workers took in handling the patient.

    A troubled abortion facility whose owner is so disreputable that even the head of the National Abortion Federation thinks he should be shut down, has been granted a variance by the Virginia Health Department allowing it to avoid compliance with new minimum facility safety standards. In fact, the owner of Virginia Women’s Wellness, the notorious New Jersey abortionist Steven Chase Brigham, lost his last medical license last week when the New Jersey Board of Medical Examiners voted to revoke his license due to a pattern of deception and dangerous, abusive practices that have characterized his 30-year abortion career. ultrasound4d6Now, because...

    The son of a former Virginia state senator has told federal investigators that U.S. Sen. Mark R. Warner discussed the possibility of several jobs, including a federal judgeship, for the senator’s daughter in an effort to dissuade him from quitting the evenly divided state Senate.

    There are signs that the U.S. Senate race in Virginia, previously considered a long-shot for Republicans and a safe seat for Democrats, could get interesting in the final weeks of the campaign. The incumbent, Democrat Mark Warner, has had a large lead in the polls over his Republican opponent Ed Gilespie since the beginning of the race. But the lead has shrunk in recent weeks from about 20 points to about 10, and the Gillespie campaign is now up with TV ads in the swing Northern Virginia market outside Washington, which Warner had previously had to himself. A popular former...

    A funny thing happened on the way to Medicaid expansion in Virginia: it didn’t happen. Governor Terry McAuliffe demanded expansion. The Washington Post and other state-worshiping media outlets insisted on its passage. The Post explained, “there remains only one reasonable solution: Republicans must ultimately compromise on expanding Medicaid.” But Republican legislators stood strong in the face of months of pressure — proving that it is, indeed, possible for them to maintain their principles. After a long legislative tug-of-war seemingly headed toward a government shutdown, the state senate suddenly flipped. It went from evenly divided between Republicans and Democrats, 20-20, to...
  • Daily Kos Gleefully Boasted About Being Bribed by Mark Warner

    Whenever your humble correspondent dips a strawberry into the chocolate fountain at the Golden Corral, one thought always comes to mind: Mark Warner bribery. Why? Because back in 2006 when Warner was governor of Virginia he attempted to influence the Daily Kos convention in Las Vegas, then known as the YearlyKos, into favoring his possible bid for the presidency with a lavish party at the Stratosphere. As we shall see, the Kossacks absolutely loved the idea that they were being bribed as they feasted on the sushi, drank down alcoholic concoctions, and dipped into the chocolate fountain. Therefore it is...
