Phil Hernandez, candidate for the Virginia House of Delegates 100th District claimed Tuesday that he was in the town of Eastville knocking on doors for his campaign. Unfortunately, local police officer Stubbs ruined the narrative. Hernandez was busted out by a local cop who pointed out the another reason why he was there.
On his campaign Facebook page, Hernandez wrote, “Last week, Rob Bloxom spent 90 minutes in conversation with the NRA at a meeting that was closed to the press…Today, he spent 90 minutes in special session in Richmond, where he adjourned without taking a vote or spending a minute in conversation about actual legislation. That’s not leadership. The job of our leaders — even when we may disagree with them in the end — is to work to bring all of us together. Politicians in Richmond fell far short of that standard today. “

“That’s why I’m in Eastville talking with voters right now — knocking on doors, having discussions, sharing stories. And why I’m proud to say that I’ve received the 2019 MDA Gun Sense Candidate mark of distinction. Because this is what true representation should look like.”
Rob Stubbs of the Eastville Police Department commented on the post:
“I thought you were in Eastville for Court,” Stubbs wrote. “Yes I’m sure you were. While you were speeding and making Cape Charles a dangerous place due to your driving behavior, Rob Bloxom was leading. Representing our Eastern Shore interests in Richmond.”
Court documents confirm Stubbs’ account. Hernandez was apparently ticketed for doing 43 mph in a 25 mph zone.
