A Message from Denver

I hope you and your family are safe during this difficult time. Throughout my life, my mission has been to serve the people and fight corruption.  As an Air Force Intelligence Officer, I fought corruption overseas in the Balkans, and as a businessman, I fought the onerous, job-killing regulations imposed by corrupt lobbyists at my home in Virginia.  I got involved with politics because my family’s business was threatened and treated unfairly by these same corrupt lobbyists and insiders who attack businesses across the state.

I never thought I would have to fight corruption within the Republican party, but unfortunately, that is the case today.  This is not the first time I have fought corruption, but I’m proud to lead the fight for transparency today.

As you know, my opponent’s campaign has engaged in voter intimidation through lawsuits targeting 5th District committee members. This is an unfathomable act that is anathema to what makes Virginia great.  Recently, Tucker Carlson’s Daily Caller picked this story up and highlighted the voter intimidation that is happening right here in our district.

Bob Good’s corruption doesn’t stop there. Of the paltry $30,000 Bob Good raised for his congressional campaign last fundraising quarter, over 60% of those funds were spent paying Committee members to vote his way.

That’s right, Bob spent the majority of his campaign donations paying committee members to rig the election and limit your option to vote.

The same committee members being leveraged by Bob are the same political insiders who have been controlling Virginia’s smoke-filled rooms for years. This isn’t the first time these party insiders have tried to rig elections so that they could get rich—but it’s not going to happen on my watch.

Intimidating committee members and paying for votes is the definition of pay-to-play politics, something I have fought against my entire life. When Bob Good can’t intimidate committee members to vote his way, he then tries to pay them off.  This blatant pay-for-play scheme goes against any semblance of a fair process and is against everything we stand for as Republicans.

I have always pledged on running a campaign of integrity and transparency. That’s why I have attached the FEC filings so you can judge for yourself on this matter. Both the committee members on Bob Goods payroll have voted on key decisions during this nomination process and have been put on special committees by the Chairman. One of these paid committee members even had their wife appointed to a special State Central Committee panel to decide the nomination process during the COVID crisis.

I have always appreciated your support and I want to thank you for sticking with me through this unnecessarily nasty nomination fight. When politicians like Bob Good try to gain power, they will do anything they can to win, even if it’s immoral and unethical.
