Special Opinion by Earl Schrag
Elaine Luria graduated from the Naval Academy and achieved the rank of Commander after a 20-year career. Scott Taylor completed SEAL training and became a sniper and instructor during his career. Thank you to both Elaine and Scott for their service and sacrifices for our country!
Unfortunately, a memorable line from the movie “Clear and Present Danger”, “Sniper approached … by being a sneaky bastard” rings true when you know that Scott Taylor and members of his campaign team provided money and collected signatures, some invalid, to allow the opponent whom Elaine defeated in the Democratic primary to run as an independent so that she could potentially take away votes from Elaine during this November’s election. Hopefully, citizens will not overlook and accept Scott Taylor’s actions from someone currently serving in Congress!
Scott Taylor claims he is an independent vote hast he has voted with President Trump 100% of the time and along party lines 98% dog the time. We need a representative who, like Elaine Luria, will vote for pre-existing health conditions and stand-up for all citizens.
Scott Taylor claims he is a leader, but he was an independent member of a small team while Elaine Luria was trained and performed as a leader of 400 members of the Navy.
The citizens of Virginia’s Second Congressional District need and deserve Elaine Luria, whose motto is “Be good! Do good work!” as our next member of the House of Representatives, not a “sneaky bastard”! Vote Elaine Luria in November!
