'Black Jesse Helms' wants to challenge Mel Watt

I will always fight for what’s right and you will always know where I stand. We cannot redefine marriage as any grouping of adults and children. I will vigorously oppose homosexual marriages, marriage-lite proposals and adoptions, as well as “gay” Scoutmasters. While my opponent believes that those in a drag queen parade and Rosa Parks are both civil rights leaders, I will join the dozens of Congressmen who sponsored an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that provides that “Marriage in the United States shall consist only of the union of a man and a woman.”

“I want your children to be able to say ‘under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance” and see the Ten Commandments on public property.”

“As we have witnessed over 50 million babies killed since Roe v Wade it is important to note that a country that will accept 50 million dead babies will accept anything; obstruction of justice, perjury, suborning perjury, witness tampering, bribery, criminal violations of campaign finance laws, pardons for cash, the criminal misuse of confidential FBI files, violations of the Oath of Office, the desecration of the Oval Office, High Crimes and Misdemeanors, trading missile technology for cash from the Chinese, rape, serial adultery, sexual harassment, even treason. “

— some of the wit and wisdom of Vernon Robinson, who wants Mel Watt’s job

NC politics can sometimes be strange, funny, scary or all three; it’s not boring. Someone should sell tickets to the debates in this race. Mel Watt, head of the Congressional Black Caucus, is going to wipe up the floor with this clown; I’m just shaking my head at this guy’s web site. When he loses, perhaps he can get a gig at Project 21. (Charlotte Observer):

A Winston-Salem Republican who’s touted himself as “the black Jesse Helms” says he’s gearing up to possibly challenge seven-term Rep. Mel Watt, D-N.C., of Charlotte — the state’s most liberal member of Congress.

Vernon Robinson said Wednesday he’s sent 40,000 letters to conservatives explaining “why this is do-able and saying, `I want your support.’ “

Two years ago, Robinson was a controversial but nearly successful candidate in the 5th Congressional District, which stretches from Forsyth County to Tennessee.

An outspoken opponent of illegal immigration and same-sex marriage, Robinson drew national attention for raising almost $3 million from a national conservative donor network and spending it on provocative ads — including one in which an announcer decried illegal “aliens” from Mexico while the “Twilight Zone” theme played in the background.

Robinson still lives in the 5th District. But he said he’d run this year for Watt’s seat in the 12th — a district that snakes up I-85, from Charlotte to Winston-Salem and Greensboro — to give voters a clear choice.

Watt, reached for comment Wednesday, said there wasn’t a Watt-Robinson race and wouldn’t be unless Robinson won a GOP primary.
