Hilariously, the Patricia Phillips for Senate campaign has updated its website with an item entitled “Setting the Record Straight.”
As you can see, Phillips continues to erroneously refer to a 2005 Loudoun Times-Mirror editorial as an “Equality Loudoun article in praise of Andrews”, suggesting that it was our statement. For some reason, she thinks that a screen shot of our page before we added an update exposing her false attribution provides some sort of defense of her behavior. I have no idea why. When her dishonesty was brought to our attention, of course we updated the page with that information. She was lying to the public about our organization.
For the record, Andrews was entirely correct to characterize Phillip’s behavior as “dirty tricks and lies” in his own mailing – but we don’t think much of his characterization of our alleged “praise” as a “slanderous statement.” Feel free to roll your eyes at this; I know I do.
Again, Patricia: Grown-ups admit when they have done something wrong. They do not dig themselves a deeper hole trying to justify their behavior.
