Wasinger Campaign Goes Sexist

warning_offensive_tee_shirts

The Rob Wasinger for Congress campaign has gone too far.

Jonathan Weinberg (Or Jon Scott, or J. Scott Weinberg, or whatever name he’s going by these days) is the press secretary for the Wasinger for Congress campaign and has spent the last few weeks trolling comment sections on well known blogs with attacks on the conservative credentials on both Barbara Comstock and Bob Marshall. The claims are outlandish and borderline libelous, but now the Wasinger campaign has taken it to a whole new level, targeting other commenters with sexist attacks.

That, I’m afraid, isn’t even the worst of it. In a subsequent thread, Rob Wasinger’s press secretary goes even further, using his previous comment to tee up a sexist attack that not only degrades himself and his boss but everything the Wasinger campaign has done:

The deleted comment has been provided here because it must see the light of day:

THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE.

This hasn’t been a good week for out of context sexist comment outrage. But now we have a Republican campaign’s mouthpiece and a former elected Supervisor in Warren County actively attacking a female GOP activists as a “raging bitch”.

Johnathan Weinberg (or Jon Scott or Scott Weinberg) and the Rob Wasinger for Congress campaign have gone too far in attacking candidates and activists in the 10th District. Their actions not only reflect poorly on the campaign but on all Republicans who are working hard to combat false and disingenuous attacks on a Conservative agenda and public image.

This type of language has no place in the Republican Party of Virginia, in political discourse, and deserves much more than apology. This deserves a resignation, a removal from the race, or an epic loss at the polls come April.

    Well, look, I would be more than happy with an epic loss at the polls for Wasinger and an overwhelming hands-down win for Comstock. This includes both the primary and the general election.

    This guy has done more to tarnish the image of conservatives in the name of conservatives than any opposition agent could dream of. Any campaign that would associate themselves with this knucklehead needs to go. I have a potted plant in my office with a higher IQ than Weinberg. My apologies to any Potted Plants I may have offended.

    I wish to apologize to all raging bitches, I did not mean to offend them by comparing them to Comstock.

    Oy. Sounds like a non-apology apology to me. Frankly, it doesn’t help and just adds kerosene to the Democrats fire.

    No, seriously, I’m very sorry for my comments to raging bitches. I did not mean to offend any of them by comparing them to Comstock. — J. Scott Weinberg (not serving as Rob Wasinger’s press secretary)

    OK, if you’re serious, then how about saying “I’m sorry for calling someone a raging b.” Further, are you suggesting that Comstock is one? I suppose I’m just a little confused on that part. It’s like comparing someone to, let’s say, a can opener and then later on saying that you apologize to all can openers out there.

  7. jonlukescott@gmail.com

    Thank you for accepting my apology to all raging bitches. I honestly meant no offense by comparing them to Barbara Comstock, who supports chemical abortion, homosexual marriage, is from Massachusetts and worked for Ted Kennedy. And I am in no way associated with the Wasinger for Congress campaign. Thanks. — J. Scott Weinberg

    Jon, you’re quite the piece of work. Just wondering what proof you have regarding the two positions that you indicate that Comstock took. With respect to working for Ted Kennedy, well, all I can say is that if you’re fro Massachusetts and looking for an internship, there aren’t a whole lot of Republicans in DC representing that commonwealth anymore. Additionally, Ronald Reagan was a Democrat early on in his life who became a Republican prior to his running for Governor of California. Are we to suggest that he’s not a satisfactory party standard-bearer?

  9. Dave Webster

    Whoever, or whatever, Scott Weinberg is needs to be given the boot. Unless Wasinger disassociates himself from this clown then Wasinger himself should be called to account. I give Wasinger 24 hours to say something about this matter. Barring any statement by Wasinger disavowing Weinberg, we will all presume that he knows what is being posted and approves or, even worse, is himself posting under the name Scott Weinberg. Where is your statement Mr. Wasinger? If you have one.

  10. Kay Cool

    I asked Mr. Wasinger about it directly this morning. Below is his exact response:

    “i don’t have a press secretary; so not sure what you are talking about.

    But thank you for your note, I will take your name off the list.

    Cheers,

    R”

    Not even classy enough to capitalize the “i”
    Nice.

    Note for the record:

    I am not a volunteer for the Wasinger campaign. I do not speak for the Wasinger campaign. I do not work for the Wasinger campaign. My words here are solely my own.

    I have known Wasinger for over 20 years, since he moved to Virginia to raise a family. I have seen him in action on Capitol Hill. I have seen him brilliantly move forward conservative, pro-family federal legislation for some of our nation’s most honest and conservative lawmakers. Rob has been endorsed by Steven Mosher, Fr. Frank Pavone, US Rep. Kerry Bentivolio and others. These men simply do not endorse political candidates unless they are completely pro-life and pro-family. From 2004-2008, I was elected to serve the good people of the South River District of Warren County, Virginia. During my campaign, I received the endorsement of Frank Wolf, known for his ethics and his honesty.

    Barbara Comstock is running a campaign in violation of the moral teaching of the Catholic Church. Despite this, she launched a website that attempts to hail her Church affiliation as a means to get votes. I am not afraid or intimidated by her or her campaign operatives. As a citizen, I have reached a point in my life where I am very comfortable stating my opinions freely, under the protections of the First Amendment. Comstock is a political whore. This is a fitting metaphor, as she is on the take. Despite the serious moral and health issues, in an attempt to win votes, she has spearheaded an initiative with HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to make abortion chemicals and family planning more widely available in Virginia without a prescription from a doctor. She has also taken $60,000 in contributions from the homosexual marriage lobby, including $30,000 from the nation’s leading homosexual activist, Paul Singer, of New York, whose stated goal is to buy Republican votes to secure new laws that enshrine homosexual marriage as right in every state. In exchange, Comstock voted to appoint a homosexual activist judge to Virginia’s bench where he is working to overturn Virginia’s traditional marriage amendment. She has also refused to petition the Governor of Virginia to uphold Virginia’s traditional marriage law. She is on the take. When she was a DC lobbyist, Comstock lined her own pockets while securing wasteful federal contracts totaling hundreds of millions of dollars for her clients, all at taxpayer expense. Indeed Congress, in official reports, found these contracts to be wasteful and dubious. Comstock does not represent the values of most Republican women and men. What is more to the point, Comstock simply will not be honest with voters. She denies her support for homosexual marriage. Her campaign seeks to cover up her profession as a lobbyist. She tries to hide her support for chemical abortion and family planning. She tries to paper over her support for policies which contradict what the Church teaches, all the while campaigning on her religious affiliation. This is outrageous.

    The GOP is a big tent that shelters the interests of many. But Republicans are under no obligation to provide cover or support for dishonest and unethical candidates. No, we have an obligation to shed the light of truth on those who seek to represent the people of this nation; for the US Congress is not a den of thieves, but, truly, it is the Peoples’ House.

    Respectfully,
    J. Scott Weinberg

      In what alternate universe does “the moral teaching of the Catholic Church” sanction calling someone a raging bitch?

      Never heard that from the pulpit on a Sunday morning.

      The two cannot be equated. So don’t equate them. One is protected by the First Amendment. The other is being violated by Comstock. Barbara Comstock is running a campaign in violation of the moral teaching of the Catholic Church. Despite this, she launched a website that attempts to hail her Church affiliation as a means to get votes. I am not afraid or intimidated by her or her campaign operatives. As a citizen, I have reached a point in my life where I am very comfortable stating my opinions freely, under the protections of the First Amendment. Comstock is a political whore.

      This guy is like Jock Itch , he just won’t go away.

      Any good will the Wasinger campaign had or was in the process of gaining is being rapidly eroded. When a campaign allows , sanctions , endorses the rantings of a Bat Shit Loon ( BSL) they don’t deserve consideration by serious people. Make no mistake Scott is the Grand Poobah of the BSL’s. Scott sits at the front of the room big fuzzy hat , gavel in hand grinning like he just out foxed Nurse Ratchet.

      BTW calling woman insulting names is chicken shit. Forget that it is demeaning and rude it is the stuff of cowards.

      All the southern Grandmothers in the audience are saying , God bless his heart.

  13. J, Scott Weinberg

    Comstock supports things most Republican men and women do not support. She supports homosexual marriage and chemical abortion. These are things condemned by her Church, yet she created a website to use her Church affiliation to get votes. This is outrageous. People need to know the truth about Comstock and her deceptive campaign.

  14. Marta

    Here’s my first amendment being exercised: you, Wasinger and all other of your sock puppet, multiple personalities disorder aliases, are misogynist pigs.

  15. J, Scott Weinberg

    So, Comstock writes a letter to Sebelius pleading for wider distro of abortion chemicals and family planning, then launches a website boasting her affiliation with the Catholic Church, the teaching of which her campaign egregiously violates. What kind of cheap political panderer would do such a thing?

  16. Alexis Rose Bank

    I can totally understand why someone would refer to Comstock as a raging bitch – although to be fair I have not witnessed any actual raging. What she is, is a vessel of ambition – and little else – whose core values are in strong opposition to the reasons why the Republican Party exists.

    Let us not forget that this woman fervently believes that all of us ought to be subject to actions by the government including indefinite detention and assassination of Americans without charge or trial. Throw in her economic and social views, and what you have adds up to Fascism, and not a ‘lite’ version thereof – the real deal.

    In my opinion, that NDAA protest vote in the House of Delegates – she stood alone against the otherwise unified delegates – should have been a death sentence for her political career. How anyone can vote for someone who thinks the government should be able to murder them without cause or consequence is something I really cannot explain, at least not with polite language.

  17. J, Scott Weinberg

    Agreed, Alexis. The Virginia Virtucolonoscopy is an establishment, minor league forum with extreme bias, limited readership and no influence. It’s a waste of time.
