Virginia Democrat to Supporters: Harass Tea Party Members by Calling the Police on Them
Mike Dickinson, a Virginia Democrat, badly wants Eric Cantor’s House seat. He wants it so badly that he’s willing to break the law to get it:
Mike Dickinson, the Virginia Democrat who wants the House seat currently held by Rep. Eric Cantor, R-Va., is not on the ballot in his district, but continues to issue unhinged tweets as though he is a viable candidate. On Sunday, he urged his supporters to violate Virginia law and use the police to harass members of the Tea Party.
“Use the Supreme Court ruling to harass tea party members. When you see them call the police,” he tweeted.
“You do realize you are advocating people to make false statements to the Police? That’s, last I checked, a crime,” one person said in response.
It does, in fact, appear that Dickinson is urging his followers to violate Virginia law, which says false reports to law enforcement is a Class 1 misdemeanor. Virginia law clearly states it is illegal to “knowingly give a false report as to the commission of any crime to any law-enforcement official with intent to mislead.”
It doesn’t seem likely that Dickinson will win, even with his efforts to harass his political opponents. It’s too bad — he’d certainly fit right in with Democrats, who seem to find a willingness to break the law to be an asset, not a liability.
