Why would a Black “Lifelong Democrat” Do an Ad for Va Republican Candidate Cuccinelli?

Lot of folks in Virginia have seen this ad for Ken Cuccinelli, Republican State Attorney General who is running for governor…

And were lef wondering why an obviously educated black woman could do this. Well…It may have something to do with – Tichi Pinkney Eppes, the woman in the ad,  filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy protection during the week the Cuccinelli campaign began airing an ad featuring the lifelong Democrat’s support for Cuccinelli’s education policy.

Hmmmm….Got paid? I certainly hope so.

Home foreclosure won’t impact school board seat

RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) –  Richmond School Board Member Tichi Pinkney-Eppes’ home is in foreclosure and 9th district representative has filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy protection.

“As a result of being elected to the school board I was let go from full-time employment with Communities in Schools of Richmond citing conflict of interest,” Pinkney-Eppes explained in a statement. “This substantial decrease in income has made it increasingly difficult to honor my financial obligations.  I decided the most appropriate way to manage my debt was to file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy allowing me to reorganize my debt and still pay my creditors.”

That bankruptcy filing has allowed Eppes to stay in her home, thus not impacting her seat on Richmond School Board. Eppes’ home was scheduled to be auctioned off this week.

BET Founder Sheila Johnson Mocks Va Democrat’s Speech Impediment

This is freaking unbelievable! It demonstrates exactly how low a Kneegrow can go hanging around with Republicans.

Ms. Johnson is backing Republican Bob McDonnell over Democrat Creigh Deeds in the 2010 Virginia Governor’s race. With her $100 million+ resort in Middleberg, Virginia teetering on the edge of collapse, there is no question a deal has been struck…

But this is low…

BET Founder Mocks Deeds’ Stuttering At Fundraiser

BOB LEWIS, AP Political Writer
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) ― The billionaire co-founder of the Black Entertainment Television mocked Democrat Creigh Deeds’ occasional stuttering at a fundraiser she held for Deeds’ Republican opponent in the governor’s race, Bob McDonnell.

In a YouTube viceo, Sheila Johnson says Virginia needs a governor “who can really communicate, and Bob McDonnell can communicate.”

Then she tells a small crowd of wealthy donors, “The other people I talk to, especially his op-op-op-o-opponent, di-di-did this all through my interview with him.”

After muted laughter among the guests, she adds, “He could not articulate what needed to be done.”

There was no immediate response from Johnson, McDonnell’s campaign or Deeds.
