Lolita Mancheno-Smoak, is running for School Board at large in Fairfax County, Virginia. Since the time that I have become more actively involved with the Tea Party movement and blogging I have gotten to know several reporters. One of which gave my name and blog info to a colleague of hers that was working on a story of immigrants and minorities in the Tea Party movement. She did a story for Roll Call. The story including some quotes from Tito "The Builder' Munoz and Lolita who are both running for office in Virginia this year. I invited the reporter to Lolita's kick off campaign event a few weeks ago. She came and interviewed many of the guests at the event and then went to another event that Lolita attended a few days later.
Today, Tito had his official kickoff to his campaign for the Virginia senate. I happen to run into Lolita who was there to support Tito. Lolita was telling me that the article on Roll Call became somewhat of a sensation on leftie blogs around the country. They were none too pleased to hear the news of immigrants and minorities being active in the Tea Party movement in Virginia. But instead of sitting back and asking themselves why immigrants from South America who lived under socialist regimes would join the Tea Party movement, they decided that the republicans in Virginia are making up Lolita. Because after all, who really names their kid Lolita? And who in their right mind would believe that a woman who was educated at Columbia would turn to The Tea Party? This must be some kind of sick joke. She can't possibly exist.
How truly sad. Let me straighten this out for you. I know Lolita. I was with Lolita this morning. She exists and yes her name is Lolita. Lolitia is a conservative running for School Board at Large and believes in the principles of the Tea Party. Get over it.
