Police union smacks Russell. (Don't blame me, I tried to warn you!)


The people of Culpeper generally and the Virginia Police Benevolent Association are sure learning their lesson.

But folks, please don't blame me... I tried to warn you.

Russell is one of those "say anything, do anything" to get elected types of pols that give politics it's horrific name.

This is no exception.

Police union remind Culpeper Town councilman of his endorsement promises

 Last month, the association representing numerous Culpeper police officers and deputy sheriffs sent letters to Culpeper’s nine town council members – eight complimenting the council for its support. Councilman Jon Russell’s was much different.
Virginia Police Benevolent Association (VPBA) Executive Director Sean McGowan’s June 26 letter, on behalf of Culpeper’s 90-member PBA chapter, to Russell reminded him of promises he made while seeking the PBA’s endorsement during the May 2014 town council election.

The letter questioned Russell’s recent views and published media comments regarding the town’s lawsuit against Culpeper Commonwealth’s Attorney Megan Frederick for her refusal to prosecute any cases involving Culpeper Officer Matt Haymaker.

The Culpeper chapter of the PBA endorsed Russell’s election bid, along with two other council candidates, Keith Price and Pranas Rimeikis. All three PBA-endorsed candidates won seats on the nine-member town council.

On June 12, the local PBA chapter sent thank you letters to Mayor Michael Olinger and seven other council members for sending the May 15 letter to Frederick in support of Haymaker and asking Frederick to reconsider her refusal to prosecute Haymaker’s cases. Russell, who was out of town on business at the time the letter was circulated for signatures, said he would “probably” have signed the letter that the eight other council members signed.

However, Russell publicly opposed the filing of the town’s lawsuit. 
This very blog is full of a history that proves Russell shouldn't be elected dog catcher.  I tried to warn the good people of the community of Culpeper that this guy was a master manipulator and that he was just using you all as a step to bigger and better things... just like he tried to with the people of Washougal, WA, the last community Russell did so much to screw up.

Just sayin.

Jon Russell got the itch again?

Ahhh, yes.  Jon Russell.

Years ago, when he finally ditched Washougal under a cloud of scandal, political failure and disastrous congressional/state representative campaigning, Russell pulled up stakes and inflicted himself on the unsuspecting town of Culpeper, VA.

He started ingratiating himself on the political scene, using an issue concerning moving city council elections to November to get himself name familiarity.

I pegged it, of course: the moment I started hearing about the scam to move the election dates, I knew it was just Russell using a bunch of rubes to increase his name familiarity so HE could run for office.

I, of course, steadfastly maintain my abhorrence of Russell being anywhere in my government.  Russell, naturally, wants to be all of those things he could never be over here.

I started a long range campaign to educate people to the true Jon Russell, using the fact set put together at the Jon Russell Watch blog.  Unfortunately, I started a couple of weeks too late, and Russell fooled enough people to actually get elected by a small margin.

I regret I didn't start earlier.  that's a mistake I won't make again.

I pointed out to the fair people of Culpeper that Russell was just using them.  He is not interested in Culpeper any more than he was interested in Washougal, beyond using them as a stepping stone.

So, I wasn't terribly surprised when I received this yesterday:

I have a very big political decision to make by Friday. I would appreciate your prayers for divine guidance. I have been receiving some wise counsel for a while now. I appreciate diverse perspectives; it helps me to think clearly.

    • Jon Russell Jay Hines Thanks for sharing that. He was absolutely correct. The only clock I punch is the 4 AM alarm clock, though I've gotten use to it now.

    Russell is also a rather fake Christian, as it turns out.  An almost psychotic liar who made up fake identities to talk to himself (pat himself on the back) and attack others in the democratian's comment section and on facebook... so insecure that he ultimately lied about his education with fake college degrees...

    Even with this garbage, he wants people to believe that whatever decision he implements (and that decision has long since been made, the Lord's intercession notwithstanding) that it was somehow divinely inspired when, in fact, it was inspired by his non-Christian, coldly calculating political self-flagellating mentality.

    My understanding of "divine guidance" is that it's... well... "divine."  Nothing that us mere mortals will say, or think, or request.... will change it one iota.

    Russell knows that: so why would be trowel out this kind of nonsense to cover a decision he's made that will, no doubt, require him to move out from the little people of Culpeper?

    A different job (Has ALEC fired him yet?) some sort of political appointment... running for some bigger office?

    No matter.  It's all about Russell to Russell.  And you can bet that "God told me to do it" will be a part of that package.
