You might be wondering: what's Jon Russell been up to?

Readers here know how highly I think of Jon Russell, who I believe represents the absolute worst that politics has to offer.

Detailed here,, the years-long psychotic episodes of lies, misleading, exaggeration, incompetence... well, I still get emails from people keeping me in the loop about this guy, because he is all about getting elected... to something... anything... and I have made it my pledge to be there when he actually tries to run.

Russell's own campaigns have been utterly abysmal.  His abortive run for congress was a disaster; his obnoxious run for the House of Representatives here and his subsequent abandonment of his job in Washougal, which, after all, he was only using as a stair-step and campaign prop to bigger and better things was an outright disaster... scandal after scandal, incompetence after incompetence.  Jon Russell Watch details it all.

Well, Russell landed in a bucolic little berg in Virginia named "Culpeper."

He's starting his campaign to get elected to something, because, as his biggest fan, he has GOT to get a title. 

So, he's set up the start of a campaign page on facebook ( ) that looks vaguely familiar.


That's what it's all about.

This time, however, he's at least being accurate about his accomplishments, although there's no mention of Washougal on this page... and no mention of, say, Jessica Bowen.

Now he's on a jihad to move the city council election date to November, with a claim of savings and increased participation.

While that may possibly be true, at the end of the day, the idea that he's doing this out of altruism instead of doing it to increase his name familiarity is absurd.

And when he does run... I'm going to be there... educating the people as to what they're actually going to get if he's elected.


  1. I had someone contact me from Culpepper inquiring about Mr. Russell. He found me in the Columbian. He was concerned about his community. I pointed this individual to the Columbian and Post Record.

    Jon Russell, Culpeper
    I am a new resident to Culpeper. My wife and I moved here from the Pacific Northwest to immerse ourselves and our three children in southern culture.
    We have been very anxious to find a State and community that reflects our values. I made an initial trip to the region to find a small town with charm and friendly residents. When it came right down to it, there was no doubt Culpeper was the place for us.

    I met a couple of people from His Village church at the Culpeper Farmer’s market and upon our arrival to town, the church brought us food and supplies to sustain us until our moving truck arrived.
    I want to thank His Village for their southern hospitality and service to my family.
    We have enjoyed getting to know our neighbors and small business owners in the community. I look forward to the years ahead
