The Honorable Pat MullinsChairmanRepublican Party of Virginia115 East Grace StreetRichmond, Virginia 23219Dear Chairman Mullins,On August 20th, 2012 the
Washington Post 
launched a scurrilous, yet sadly typical,attack on Republican U.S. Senate nominee George Allen.While Allen had made a statement repudiating Missouri U.S. Senate candidate ToddAkin's remarks, the
Washington Post's
Laura Vozzella chose to take the opportunity to attack Allen by linking him to a vote for a judicial appointment -- a connection so bizarre, it could onlyhave come from a DSCC opposition research book, not to mention far beyond the scope of herarticle.Vozzella has a long history of bashing conservatives, so naturally the
Washington Post 
isa perfect home for her.What strikes the bloggers and readers of the Jeffersoniad as bizarre is this: why wouldthe Republican Party of Virginia grant this vitriolic and anti-conservative "reporter" withcredentials at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida?Bloggers have long been up front and critical about the difference between real journalism that presents perspectives and the sort of op-ed reporting the
Washington Post 
haslong engaged in against Virginia conservatives -- particularly George Allen.Therefore, the members of the Jeffersoniad Blog Alliance demand the Republican Partyof Virginia immediately revoke Laura Vozzella's credentials for the 2012 RNC Convention inTampa, Florida as an example and a warning that while journalism will be respected, copy-and-paste hatchet jobs courtesy of the Kaine/DSCC machine can no longer be treated as journalismand is unworthy of such respect.Regards,Jim Hoeft Jim Riley
