I got a robocall this afternoon from former delegate Paul Harris (he held Rob Bell’s seat for just two terms, back in the 90s, and long ago moved to Northern Virginia and took a job with Raytheon), inviting me to a “town hall” meeting at an area hotel. The event is led by Harris, Del. David Toscano, and attorney general Bob McDonnell. It’s sponsored by Americans for Prosperity.
There’s just so much about this that’s bizarre. Paul Harris? Really? Nobody’s seen him around these parts for a decade. He’s on the board of the Virginia arm of AFP, so that explains that connection. And what’s Toscano doing at an AFP event? And where does McDonnell fit in here? And why hold such a thing in Charlottesville? It’s just goofy.
