Silence gives consent
The Roanoke Times had a article today addressing Franklin County Democratic Committee Chairman Joe Stanley and his malicious attack on the ODBA. Stanley has tried to spin this story and make himself into the victim. It has been shown over and over that the timeline does not follow Joey's account. I think Jerry From on High covers this the best.
"In fact - repeat FACT - he created the site after gobs of derision started pouring in on Roscoe Reynolds (and other video clips started appearing daily - here and here) and before Joe Stanley's name ever came into the discussion.
In other words, Stanley injected himself into the fray. By creating the website and purposely linking it to NAMBLA. And making it known, after having done it, to his left-wing buddies in order for them to make mention of the link on their weblogs. Which they did."
Read all of Jerry's post here. This story continues to grow everyday. With Sen Roscoe Reynolds and candidate Eric Ferguson's close ties with Joe Stanley's Yellow Dog Strategy business, people are wanting answers. You should read Prank or Dirty Trick by Chris Graham at the New Dominion. He writes that Stanley's Yellow Dog business is in fact headquartered at Eric Ferguson's campaign headquarters. They even share a phone!
Roscoe and another Yellow Dog client Adam Tomer have removed the Yellow Dog logo from their web sites. Why? Silence. Do they approve of Stanley's tactics? Silence. The Democratic party that Stanley represents as a elected chairman of Franklin County is also silent. "Silence gives consent" - old common law.
