Who the Hell is Harry Greigo? Goodlatte Probably Knows

I spotted this political sign on Williamson Road in the Hollins section of Roanoke a little bit ago and chuckled because the far, far, far, far right is attacking 6th District U.S. Rep. Bob Goodlatte for some perceived notion that he is in bed with President Obama. That is so patently absurd as to be laughable--out loud laughable.

The xenophobes who sponsored this ... thing .. are with something called the Gadsden Guardians (gadsdenguardians.com). A guy named Harry Greigo is running against Goodlatte (whom I would dearly love to see lose to somebody, but I'm not sure this is who we'd like in the House, either) and he and the Gadsden boys are saying outlandish things like.
  • Goodlatte "voted for Obamacare"
  • "Voted multiple times to fund sanctuary cities and Obama’s Amnesty for Illegals with our tax dollars."
  • "Colluded with the Republican leadership to hold a ceremonial vote to repeal Obamacare so he could tell us he voted against it." 
  • "When he ran for office the first time he promised to term limit himself and leave in 2004. That was 12 years ago and he has broken that promise 6 times already."
 This is all bullshit, as you probably know, but I'm not saying it in defense of Goodlatte. He is one of the people who is responsible for the fact that our government doesn't work, that it is no longer a democracy (if it ever was one) and that his only loyalty is to the monied elite of the United States. I don't know who Harry Greigo answers to, but I can tell you it ain't me.
