What in the Hell Happened in Augusta County - IMHO
Since Thursday the blogs and press have been covered with the news about The Augusta County Mass Meeting. Now that the smoke of battle has cleared, reasonable people of all or no political party can see what happened. The minutes of the meeting are now public, video is available, and opinions are everywhere. It is time to publish mine.
It is clear that Emmett Hanger orchestrated a hostile take over of this meeting. It is also clear that once the Hangerites took control, they did not have a agenda or clue of what to do. Driven by revenge, Emmett and crew proceeded to further disrupt and divide the party. Let us all pray this will be his last term no matter what the outcome of this ordeal is. This power play by Emmett should seal the deal for many republicans. The RPV should also take notice that one of the hardest working group of party activists are under attack. I say let the Democrats have Emmett, he votes with them anyway. The Augusta voters need to ask themselves when has Emmett did anything that made them proud to be a republican. If you take longer than two seconds to think of something, Emmett loses.
I never liked Emmett. He votes to raise my taxes. His latest antics in Staunton and now Augusta proves he has become unhinged. The RPV needs to resolve this issue yesterday. The republicans from across the state are watching.
