Poor Barbara Comstock can’t seem to catch a break. She started the weekend having to bum a ride from a lobbyist and things only got worse from there on out.
On Saturday there was standing room only for a parent organized town hall on gun safety. The parents had to organize it themselves since Barbara “thoughts and prayers” Comstock has not held a single town hall in over three years of “serving” in Congress.
The first thing to go wrong was that Comstock’s old friends from Gays Against Guns turned up. Normally this wouldn’t be a big deal but we all know Comstock is notoriously thin-skinned and can’t take a joke. So having this image broadcast on live national television must have enraged her.
Next up, more national media attention focusing on Barbara Comstock’s complete lack of accountability.
More on @BarbaraComstock: She’s developed a bit of a reputation for avoiding town halls when constituents have asked for them, on subjects like gun violence and DACA. Her Dem competitors have not let anyone forget that at the VA-10 #TownHallForOurLives.https://t.co/otDJm1dt8U— Kara Voght (@karavoght) April 7, 2018
Back to MSNBC where the reporter made sure to point out that Comstock was nowhere in sight.
“One individual who did not show up is Barbara Comstock, the Republican who has represented this district since she was elected in 2014.”
And after delving into a brief history on some of her NRA campaign contributions the reporter reminds the national audience once again that Barbara Comstock is a coward.
“Certainly the Republican here, Barbara Comstock, that represents this district, a no show today.”
Next up, Comstock suffers another embarrassment, this time at the hands of her Republican challenger Shak Hill. Naturally, she is too much of a coward to face her opponent, so she is refusing to debate him.
Not only does #TrickyBarbara not hold town halls, she is avoiding candidate debates and forums too. Too busy hanging out with donors and DC elites. Doesn't have time for the people of her district. I will be at the first candidate forum without her. #BeltwayBarbara— Shak Hill (@shakhill) February 22, 2018
Comstock won the poll by only 24 votes, yet Shak Hill’s team counted 17 cars with DC license plates in the parking lot. There were also 24 participants who voted in the VA-10 straw poll that did not vote in the Senate contest. Very suspicious.
None of this stopped Comstock from bragging about her “victory” on Twitter.
If Comstock thinks that hiding from voters and rigging straw polls is going to cut it this November, she’s sadly mistaken.
