Landes fires salvo, into his foot...
Valley Democrats demanded a public apology from Del. Steve Landes, R-Weyers Cave, on Thursday after a published news report quoted the delegate comparing tactics by President Barack Obama's White House to those of Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union.
Prodded by his Democratic opponent and three local party chairmen, Del. Steve Landes, R-Weyers Cave, refused Thursday to apologize for comments he made at a Republican picnic last month comparing White House tactics to those used by the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany.
A comment Del. Steve Landes, R-Weyers Cave, made comparing the White House to the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany has drawn the ire of his opponent and area Democratic leaders.
Greg Marrow, who is running against Landes in the 25th District House of Delegates race, issued a statement Thursday calling for Landes to apologize for comments he gave during the Staunton-Augusta County-Waynesboro GOP picnic on Aug. 29.
You’ve seen the placards at health-care town halls depicting Barack Obama with a Hitler mustache. Pretty extreme, right? Not to Steve Landes.
