National Republican Campaign Committee spokesman says that Tom Perriello is responsible for Mr. Perrielo’s brother’s propane line being cut, apparently in retaliation for Mr. Perriello’s vote for the health care bill.
Blue Virginia quotes the Roanoke, Va., Times, then comments.
While his organization doesn’t condone such behavior, National Republican Congressional Committee spokesman Andy Sere said Perriello is not the victim.
“Central and Southside Virginians are the ones who are going to have the bear the burden of increased taxes,” he said. “What you’re seeing is a frustration among his constituents who believe he’s not listening to them.”
That’s right, according to the NRCC spokesman, threats of violence (and worse) against his family are actually Tom Perriello’s fault because he had the audacity to vote for health care reform. In other words, the NRCC spokesman is arguing, in America if you disagree with a policy of your government or a vote by your duly elected representative, the recourse is not the “ballot box” but the metaphorical “bullet box.”
