Anti-abortion crazies are on the attack
Anti-abortion battleground in Virginia
The floodgates of accusations against Democrats in Virginia are related to the 2019 state elections. This November, both houses of the Virginia Legislature stand for election. The House of Delegates stands every two years, and the Senate every four. There is a very real possibility that Democrats can capture a majority in both houses. Since the governor is also a Democrat, the party can gain full control of both branches of government.
This is a big deal on two fronts. With the 2020 Census on the horizon, legislators elected this year will re-draw the state’s Congressional districts. Democrats can correct extreme gerrymandering if they gain control.
Democratic control of Virginia’s government mobilizes the crazy wing of the Republican Party. Anti-abortion activists follow a scorched-earth policy in their attempts to stop changes in restrictive abortion legislation. The disinformation attacks on are all-out and intense. This is where attacks on top Democratic elected officials originate.
I’m not sure what we can do for the men in charge now, but Democrats should be aware of the lengths these people will go to get their way. We need to push back against Republican activists as hard as we can.
