Hey, I remember those two!

Hazel and Rhodes? That takes me back . . .

Way back, to somewhere in the 1990's during my courtship with the woman who would become my first wife, and then dump me to run off with the wedding's best man . . .

Where was I? Oh yeah, Hazel and Rhodes.

Back in 1995, Jim Hazel's brother John (better known as "Til" - and the leading contributor to the PAC in question) led the fight against George Allen's tax reduction plan (which included ending the BPOL tax, temporarily imposed to help defray costs from the War of 1812). Jim himself was also "a Northern Virginia high-tech executive who worked as a lobbyist for Gov. Mark R. Warner" (Washington Post). As for "Penny" Rhodes (nice job, VPAP), she was such a thorn in the sides of Allen and Gilmore that the latter actually backed a conservative primary challenger against her in 1999.

I would also note that the PAC in question was formed specifically "to help defend the political fortunes of Republican state delegates who voted in favor of a tax increase during the extended 2004 General Assembly session" (Post).

Obviously, this Spotsylvania blogger isn't about to rip Hanger for getting out-of-Valley contributions. However, it is abundantly clear why Hanger got this money: he supported higher taxes in 2004 (vote) and in 2006 (vote). The high-tax lobby has made its preference clear, and chosen Hanger. I hope and expect the voters will respond accordingly, and choose Sayre.
