Brian Moran's DPVA Fundraising During DMV Derecho Recovery

Some. People. Just. Don't. Get. It.

Brian Moran is indeed one of them.

My thoughts on the Democratic Party of Virginia Chairman (DPVA),  Brian Moran, are well known.

As many of you know, Friday, June 28, 2012, a derecho storm ravaged the Washington, DC area.  More than 1.2 million customers lost their electrical power.  At it's height, Dominion Power had about 400,000 million customers in Northern Virginia who lost their power (this is half of Dominion Power's customer base).  My power was not restored for five days (that is difficult enough for me, but imagine elderly residents having to go without power).

On July 2, 2012, I received a call on my cellular phone - I'd say about 1 PM - it was the DPVA's political fundraising operation (I was kind of shocked that Brian Moran didn't suspend fundraising efforts during this difficult period).  I told them that I, along with several residents in Northern Virginia, lost their power (I suggested that they start reading some of the major newspapers, like the Washington Post, USA Today - maybe watch CNN - that sort of thing).  I told them that fundraising really was the last thing on my mind right now - and that they should call back in another week - because I really don't know when I'm going to get electrical power.  Additionally, I recommended that the DPVA suspend fundraising for a week - at least until Virginia recovers from the storm (after all, half of Dominion Power's customers are in Northern Virginia - and I'd bet a sizable amount are Democrats - or have voted Democrat).  Yet, on July 5, 2012, I receive another call from the DPVA.

Brian Moran, the chief lobby for a ridiculous proprietary school association, has no pulse for reality.  He is an idiot on several levels.  He has no vision for the DPVA.  It's though he is driving a car and every location is in his blind spot.

If Terry McAuliffe runs for governor, his first action should be to ask Brian Moran to resign as Chair of the DPVA.

Good heavens, Brian, get real.  SMH.
