Will You Stand with Me Supporting Law Enforcement and Protecting Virginians' Health?

Dear Friends,

BREAKING NEWS!

8News on Friday reported that Commissioner of Health Oliver plans to mandate coronavirus vaccinations for Virginians once one is made available to the public. I have introduced legislation ensuring that vaccines are not forced on those who have health or religious conflicts, including vaccines that could be unsafe or unethical.

 

Will you stand with me as I fight to protect Virginians' health?

I filed legislation to protect Virginians' health and safety by allowing effective COVID-19 treatment with Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ). HCQ is available over-the-counter in many countries and has been used for over 60 years to treat different diseases. There is strong evidence that HCQ helps the human body resist the COVID-19 virus, especially when used early along with Azithromycin and zinc. I've introduced a resolution stating that the Governor and his Health Commissioner should NOT be discouraging the use of HCQ. This past week over 400 people signed a petition in support of my resolution. This politicization of what could be the end of the crisis is costing many lives. 

Tuesday, Harvey A. Risch, MD, PhD, Professor of Epidemiology, Yale School of Public Health, Yale School of Medicine, Yale Cancer Center reached out to me supporting the resolution. He made 

the statement on national television that "[proper treatment including HCQ] would save 70,000 to 100,000 lives."

Will you stand with me as I fight to re-open Virginia? 

In contrast to some other states and countries, Governor Ralph Northam and Dr. Mohammad Oliver almost single-handedly imposed a shutdown of our Commonwealth. I've introduced a bill to limit the Governor and Commissioner of Health's orders, and a Resolution calling for them to be ended immediately.

The two vaccine bills and my bill to restrict executive orders will likely be heard on Tuesday morning- please contact the Health, Welfare and Institutions Committee urging them to support HB 5070, HB 5075, and HB 5082



Will you stand with me as I support our law enforcement and the laws that keep us safe?

It ought to be very clear that in the rare case when a law enforcement officer needs to be disciplined or terminated 

from his position, it fails everyone if a police union interrupts that process. Fortunately, Virginia hasn't had too many "bad cop" stories, largely because public-sector collective bargaining has been prohibited in the Commonwealth. Legislation passed earlier this year opens that Pandora's Box May 1, 2021, and we can't allow this to hinder safe and effective law enforcement. The Law Enforcement Transparency and Accountability bill I've introduced, if passed, will help prevent that.  

Please contact the Labor and Commerce Committee urging them to support this common-sense legislation, HB 5071, which they will likely hear Wednesday morning.

And when you see a law enforcement officer, give them a wave and a smile to let them know most of us appreciate them.

 

Will you stand with me to stop the Democrats' dangerous laws?

Assaults on Police: SB 5032 would remove the mandatory sentence for assaulting a police officer, even when the officer was injured. This means someone can punch a cop, and unless there is an even more serious felony, there is no requirement that the offender serve a jail sentence. In recent weeks, Richmond police have reported being attacked with bricks, batteries, and rocks. I oppose bills like this that will further endanger law enforcement officers. Senate Committee Republicans voted against the bill, but it passed on a party-line vote.

Releasing Violent Offenders Early: SB 5034, by Sen. Boysko who represents part of Loudoun County, would retroactively reduce sentences for thousands of prisoners. While the current version of the bill excludes some serious offenders, it would still allow the early release of others, including (1) Offenders who created or sold child pornography, (2) Offenders who organized or profited from child prostitution, and (3) Offenders convicted of 3rd offense domestic assault or strangulation. I believe that these are dangerous offenders who should serve their entire sentences as imposed by the judge or jury. Again, Senate Committee Republicans voted no, but this measure passed on a party-line vote.

Your financial support will help me stay on the front lines of these battles

I'll keep fighting to ensure that Virginians have every possible opportunity to get the medical care they need, and to open up our economy. Over 1,050,000 Virginians out of a workforce of 4.4 million have filed initial unemployment claims since this crisis began, and all Virginians are suffering under the continued lock-downs and threats of school closures. We have to do better, and with God's help and wise leadership, we can and will.
