I had someone do some research for me after I had an absolutely ignorant reply to my blog posting on, A Stark Difference between Two Candidates, Jim Rutledge and Eric Wargotz, they basically called me a liar and a hack, so I got someone to find some facts for me which back up my claims that Dr. Wargotz, is in fact, still very much a liberal. Listed below is what was mailed to me. I hope you find them as disturbing as I have. In all Blog Fairness, I will post this person’s non sense, then the facts, and you decide for yourself. What it proves is that I was correct, Thuggish Behavior from those who support Wargotz. They don’t take kindly to criticism, that being the case, maybe they should just move on. After all, politicians come and go, but friends last a lifetime and with friends like this, who needs enemies. Nothing like someone acting like spoiled rotten milk. If you agree with the poster, feel free to email me, if you agree with the facts I have provided, feel free to email me, I will gladly post them for you.

Cecil, I’m glad more people don’t read this blog because more people would see you for the politicl hack that you truly are.
You claim to be a conservative yet you pledge allegience to Former Gov. Erhlich. The fact that he has name recognition, albeit not always in a good way, flush tax, democrat judge appointments, increasing the size and scope of state govt, pro abortion, pro embryonic stem cell… Shall I go on?
The we come to the life long democrat turned Republican wannabe ACLU Constitutional Attorney James Rutledge. Just what Washington needs. Another attorney. Wasn’t Arlen Spector an attorney? Will Mr. Rutledge ‘change his stripe’ again to save his political ass? It may be in the cards.
No doubt Mr. Rutledge can put his lawyer words to keyboard and make his website look good. Please explain how a “constitutional attorney” can be in favor of term limits? Doesn’t our Constitution already give us that right every 2, 4 or 6 years at the ballot box?
I presume Pat McDonough is some political fat cat in Annapolis that Mr. Rutledge is looking to hitch his wagon to. Maryland is just one of the many ‘pools’ where illegal immigrants have ended up, Jimbo & pat are doing nothing to turn off the spigot.
Perhaps rather than sniping at another candidate you, Cecil (if that’s your real name) and Jimbo should focus on the real intended target, Babs Mikulski.
Unlike the RNC/MDGOP, you should let the primary process work. Have Jimbo spend what little of his own money left (yes, his campaign finances are a matter of public record) and put out ads on his accomplishments, advocacies and community involvement. Perhaps which criminal he got a ‘walk’ for on a technocality.
As Arnie said above….
Do your homework.
Facts = The Truth on Queen Anne’s County Commissioner Wargotz from another Emailer to me
This is the email that was sent to Disgruntled above, because they felt what I had posted was not factual information.
“You have a promising career ahead on MS-NBC or as Bill Maher’s sidekick. You are using the liberal tactics of attacking the messenger instead of debating ideas or positions. You start the reply off going after the author, which has nothing to do with Rutledge or Wargotz. Typical.
Next, you have the audacity to tell the author to do “his” homework, yet you make statements that are blatant lies by trying to associate Jim Rutledge with the ACLU. Time to put your money where your mouth is… where’s the proof of that statement? And, because Wargotz was a democrat that contributed $1000 to Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, $200 to Steny Hoyer, 2 separate $500 donations to Parris Glendenning, and roughly $22,000 to a P.G. County Executive who is also a Democrat… You and Wargotz are the guilty parties here. Your wagons are hitched to these liberal, socialist types. And, those connections go deeper than you think.
For the record, Jim is for self-imposed term limits. And, the reason for that is because of the “career politician” garbage going on in Congress. If government was functioning properly, and it is not, there would be no need to even self-impose term limits.
Why did you leave certain items out of Wargotz’s distinguished career as QA County Commissioner?
He voted for a 50% increase in recordation fees?
He submitted ordinance 08-25 which had severe property rights restrictions in it.
QA County budget/spending has increased dramatically since Wargotz joined the Commissioners.
QA County budget for FY2011 has $2.8 million increase in spending in it.
QA County budget for FY20011 has non-education Debt service payments nearly doubled from $2.1 million to $4.165 million.
QA County is proposing a 12.2% income tax hike. Do you get 12.2% pay increases? I don’t, most people don’t. Why is it the QA Cty Commissioners believe the residents of QA Cty can afford this while we are in a recession, the county has a 8%+ unemployment rate, and the country and state is drowning in debt?
QA County is proposing a 13.4% property tax hike. With Talbot County (adjacent county) having a property tax rate about half of what QA County is proposing, why wouldn’t people simply move to Talbot county? And, what’s that going to do to your tax base?
And, I really would like to understand why it is Wargotz hired someone to do web development work for him, the work was delivered, and Wargotz refuses to pay the person? Hmm? Why?”
So, there you have it, I laid it out there for you, the voter to decide. The above is the views of one Wargotz Supporter and one Rutledge Supporter. Nice to see I can reach out and touch someone.
