Nice to Tweet You, Jeff Frederick!


According to reports by Not Larry Sabato, Talking Points Memo, Taegan Goddard’s Political Wire, The Huffington Post, Venture Beat and now MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show, Republican Party of Virginia Chairman Jeff “Disarray” Frederick accidentally tipped off Democratic Senate Majority Leader Dick Saslaw to secret plans by Democratic Senator Ralph Northam to caucus with the Virginia Senate Republicans. If the plans had been successfully carried out, this would have forced a 20-20 tie in the Virginia Senate, which would have been broken by the GOP Lt. Governor.

But, alas, that never happened because Jeff “Disarray” Frederick tweeted about it. Tweeting is slang for posting to the social networking site Twitter.com. (Of course, Del Frederick denies this ever happened, but the National Review isn’t buying his explanation and I’m not either.)

I don’t know about you, but I think Del. Frederick is fast becoming the best RPV chairman that Democrats have ever seen in Virginia. First he runs off his finance director who told the Richmond Times-Dispatch that the RPV is “dysfunctional”  and now he’s cost Virginia Republicans control of the State Senate.

What’s next, will he tweet secrets from Bob McDonnell’s campaign strategy meetings? One can only hope.

Meanwhile, thanks to the fast thinking of the Not Larry Sabato blog, they grabbed a screen shot before Del. Frederick tries to whitewash the facts.
