Virginia Foxx Launches Lying Contest with Michelle Bachmann


North Carolina GOP Congresswoman Virginia Foxx has apparently launched a competition with Minnesota GOP Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann to see who can lie more. Here is Rep. Foxx’s latest entry, which I think beats Rep. Bachmann’s entry where she blamed the Great Depression on FDR. Yes, what Rep. Foxx said is a BIGGER lie than that.

If you want to call Rep. Foxx to complain of this outrageous lie which desecrates the life and memory of Matthew Shepard, here are Foxx’s telephone numbers:

  • Washington, DC: (202) 225-2071
  • Clemmons, NC: (336) 778-0211
  •  Boone, NC: (828) 265-0240

Or you can write a letter to the editor of the Winston-Salem Journal, which is the largest newspaper in Foxx’s district. Email your letter to letters@wsjournal.com. Just follow these guidelines:

  • Letters should be no more than 250 words.
  • A phone number and complete mailing address must be included so the paper can verify that a letter is, in fact, from the stated author. Only the writer’s name and city will be published.
  • You can also submit a letter using this form.

More importantly, you can contact your U.S. Senator to ask them to vote to pass the Matthew Shepard Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Protection Act (S.909).  It’s passed the House already, despite the objections of Rep. Foxx and her fellow Republicans. If it passes the Senate, President Obama has promised his signature on the bill. In a previous Congress, both the House and the Senate passed this legislation, but President Bush refused to sign it into law.

To understand why this is important, watch this video of Judy Shepard talking about her son Matthew.

  1. I made that Foxx video! Thanks for the posting!

    • Thanks for making it. I hope that people understand just how dangerous Rep. Foxx is and will take action. She has a large number of Republican voters who can’t stand her. The right Republican could beat her in a primary, but it would be a tall order for a Democrat to beat her because it’s such a gerrymandered district.

  2. This woman is plainly un-christian as well as Unamerican!
    How could she take money from the Federal Payroll and stand in the hallowed halls of Congress and lie?

    Despicable!
    Unchristian!
    That Foxx said that lie while Shepard’s mother was present in the gallery is just vile.
    How can anyone sink so low?
