Supports Required Transvaginal Ultrasounds for Women Terminating Pregnancies

Barbara Comstock had the courage to support legislation requiring women to have an ultrasound wand inserted into them to dissuade against making a really spoOOoky decision. Help Barbara penetrate the irresponsibility away.

Barbara Comstock was leader in organizing the defense of Tom Delay and Scooter Libby, among others.

They say if you want a friend in Washington get a dog. Barbara Comstock loves dogs and loyalty isn’t just talk with her. She’s defended some of the most indefensible, like L. Scooter Libby, who was indicted for exposing a clandestine CIA agent for partisan retribution, and Tom Delay, who was indicted for money laundering.

Barbara Comstock Loyally Campaigning For Mitt Romney

In this clip, Barbara Comstock defends a Romney ad that fraudulently claimed Obama was robbing seniors of  $716 billion in medicaid coverage. The ad referred to a bill that reduced excessive payments to health care providers, and passed with huge bipartisan support, including Paul Ryan’s. The bill actually reduced the out of pocket payments seniors made, while Romney’s plan (restoring the windfall payments to providers) would have increased such payments from seniors an estimated $342 per year. The ad was quickly debunked. Learn More

Barbara Comstock Voted Against Due Process For American Citizens

In 2012 as a member of the Virginia House of Delegates, Barbara Comstock was one of 4 (out of a hundred total) to vote against a bill which bars virginia officials  from cooperating from the suspension of habeas corpus under the NDAA. Since the basic legal protections afforded to Americans by the Bill of Rights to the US Constitution is one the first matters of civics we learn in this country, I doubt the significance of this will be lost on many people, but Ill break this down a little, if for no other reason than for dramatic effect. Being quite upset about monarchs imprisoning people indefinitely on political whims, the people England in the 17th Century codified the idea of habeas corpus in the Magna Carta. Americans, being quite freedom loving themselves, have enshrined the idea of due process and habeas corpus in, not one, but two amendments–the 5th and the 14th. Here’s the 5th Amendment: No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation. Barbara Comstock actually voted against ensuring due process and the right to a trial, against the prevention of unconstitutional...

Barbara Comstock’s Anti-gay Record

There’s some speculation that Comstock has a secret less hardline stance against gay marriage because one of her donors is the organizer of a coalition of Republican donors that support dropping the anti-gay platform from the Republican Party. Her record clearly suggests otherwise. Here are a couple examples of her decidedly anti-gay record: Barbara Comstock voted to allow state-funded adoption agencies to discriminate against gay couples seeking to adopt [source] She supports the sickening  Federal Marriage Amendment, which is a Constitutional amendment that would define marriage as between a man and a woman, nullifying state sanctioned gay marriages [source, source] How this is still acceptable in 2014 blows my...

The Uninformed and the Corrupt Unite Once Again in Support of Keystone Pipeline

Barbara Comstock supports the Keystone Pipeline. Here’s a short list of reasons why the Keystone Pipeline is an irredeemably terrible idea: It puts an oil pipeline (those things that frequently spill goo everywhere) over U.S. water tables (the things we need to have to get water which are ruined by oil getting in them). It is not American oil. It is Canadian oil. We don’t get any oil. Our economy doesn’t get the benefit of that oil. We (meaning the wealthy brokers of this deal) just get money to pump super-hazardous oil through America’s breadbasket for export to other places. The oil comes from these terrible things called tar sands. Assurances were made that the oil from tar sands and the chemicals used to treat them wouldn’t leak into Canadian water. They did. It already happened. And the area around the tar sands looks like a moonscape. It would only create 35 permanent jobs. Humans need drinkable water to live. So why do we hear so many of our leaders giving such full-throated support to this clearly poor policy choice? Many of them are invested personally. The people who would profit off this deal are huge campaign contributors. Once again, Barbara Comstock supports this hideously bad policy. She is ignoring the serious risks to America’s water supply and the heinous fraud behind the alleged benefits of the pipeline. Fun Fact: Fixing old water and gas pipelines would create far more jobs than building Keystone...

Comstock Campaign Cozy With Saudi Oil Money

From BlueVirginia Just when you thought Scooter Libby’s former defender Barbara Comstock couldn’t get any shadier, a troubling article in The Nation magazine outlines how Comstock’s campaign (and the campaigns of other Republicans around the country) is being boosted by Saudi Arabian oil money passed through a 501(c)4 nonprofit called the “American Action Network.” That’s right: as if it’s not bad enough that Comstock previously worked as a lobbyist for the fossil-fuel-baron, climate-science-denying, right-wing-extremist Koch brothers, it turns out her campaign is being boosted by a secretive nonprofit that does not disclose its donors, but is headed by a lobbyist retained by petro-state Saudi Arabia. Sensing a pattern here? It turns out that the “American Action Network” is headed by former US Senator Norm Coleman, a Republican who is also registered as a lobbyist for Hogan Lovells, a firm retained by the Saudis on “policy issues involving Iran” and “Middle East peace issues regarding Syria, Iran, etc.” According to a recent Politico article, the “American Action Network” and the “Congressional Leadership Fund” — an allied group tied to House Speaker John Boehner — intend to spend $1 million against 10th CD Democratic candidate John Foust. Of course, it’s nothing new for outside groups to intervene in a Congressional campaign, but it seems like 10th CD voters might be interested in the amount of money pouring in from a group with close ties to Saudi oil money on behalf of Barbara Comstock. Of course, given that Comstock previously served as a lobbyist for big oil, it’s no surprise that those who once paid her to lobby against environmental regulations are...

Barbara Comstock’s Donors

Barbara Comstock’s Donors should be disconcerting for everyone–even conservatives might be taken aback to learn the big money Barbara Comstock has received from a pro-amnesty pro-gay conservative donor Paul Singer. Here’s an overview from, the Daily Caller’s, Alex Pappas’s opposition research on Barbara Comstock: Paul Singer ($30,000) On October 31, 2013, Paul Singer donated $30,000 dollars to the Comstock campaign, by farthe largest donor. Singer has contributed to gay-rights causes and same-sex marriage campaigns,and has also actively sought to persuade other conservatives to support gay marriage. He has joined other Wall Street executives in support of LGBT equality in the workplace as a means of retaining employees and improving overall business outcomes. In 2012, Singer provided $1 million to start a PAC named American Unity PAC. According to the New York Times, thePAC’s “sole mission will be to encourage Republican candidates to support same-sex marriage,in part by helping them to feel financially shielded from any blowback from well-funded groups that oppose it.” Singer has given nearly $10 million of his own money to gay-rights initiatives, including thesame-sex marriage efforts not only in New York but also in New Hampshire and New Jersey. “And that figure doesn’t include his assistance in tapping a broad network of donors for individual candidates. He was pivotal in rounding up about $250,000 apiece for theRepublican state senators in New York whose votes for same-sex marriage provided its margin of victory in the Legislature.” In 2012, Singer stated in an interview that he’s confident that in Congressional races, whichwould most likely be the super PAC’s initial focus, there are more than a few Republicans“who could be on the verge...

Analysts Unite, Saying “Gahdanngit Bobby” in Response to Commotion Over Non-issue

Recently there’s been a series of blog posts, citing information first reported here, which attempt to make political hay out of the fact that John Foust’s wife works at an OB/GYN that does not accept Medicaid. Some clarifying facts: John Foust supports accepting federal funds to expand the state of Virginia’s Medicaid program, recouping taxes already levied from Virginians and potentially saving hundreds of Virginians’ lives each year. Medicaid is a program run by each state. The quality of the program, and the intricacies of rules for participating in it, are naturally controlled by the individual state. Foust’s wife works at a practice in the District of Columbia, which has a distinct Medicaid program from Virginia’s. An estimated half of medical practices nationwide do not accept Medicaid. The American health system is exceptionally complex, and medical reimbursement is one of the most complicated things about it. In deciding which insurance types to accept, health care providers must weigh a lot of tough issues.  A decision not to participate in Medicaid is often made reluctantly and are far from a definitive representation of an individual practitioner’s position on Medicaid in general–much less a reason to conclude a spouse should reject the idea of expanding Medicaid in a completely different jurisdiction. Barbara Comstock opposes getting the federal dollars to expand VA’s Medicaid. This means that hundreds of thousandsof Virginians will remain without access to decent healthcare.  A recent study predicted that in “opt-out” states like Virginia “many low-income women will forego recommended breast and cervical cancer screening; diabetics will forego medications, and all low-income adults will face a greater likelihood of depression, catastrophic...
