Council Candidates Response to Goodlatte

I have been told by someone who would know that one or more Roanoke City Council candidates have sent an e-mail to 6th District Representative Bob Goodlatte, who criticized the all the candidates for their initial endorsement of Sanctuary City status for Roanoke.

Goodlatte's criticism was an overt play to the Tea Party, which makes up a sizeable portion of the GOP contingent and which strikes fear into his heart on a consistent basis. The TP doesn't believe he is conservative enough (of course, it wouldn't believe Richard Nixon, Barry Goldwater, Ronald Reagan, George Bush I or II, Gerald Ford or nearly anybody else with human characteristics was conservative enough, either). His politics have increasingly reflected the TP's view of an all-white, hateful, greedy America.

I asked my source for a copy of the e-mail and was told that providing it to me would be "unprofessional," though people in politics talk publicly all the time.

Anyhow, his bullshit has been answered. Now, let's see what he does with it.
