Rubber-Stamp Scott

Par for the course, my delegate in Richmond voted against his district’s interest in lock-step fashion with the Republican Party.

In an editorial this morning, the Washington Post reports that Del. Scott Lingamfelter refused to commit funds to safeguard Metro’s future, citing some lame claim that “Metro is ‘a mess’ and in need of internal reforms.”

Come on Scott, are you advancing the notion that Metro should not be funded until it sets its house in order? That could take a very long time, and in the meantime, how are your voters supposed to get to work?

Harry J. Parrish of Prince William County also voted against the legislation least he indicates he merely wants to make sure the cart goes before the horse. If Northern Virginians approve the referendum, Parrish is willing to support the measure.

Can't blame a guy for remembering recent history when a few of his pals lost their seats in primaries for endorsing a Northern Virginia tax referendum, which voters ultimately rejected at the polls.
