Many would agree that acts of violence should be cause to ask an elected official to resign her or his office, or to give good reasons why not.

In this light, it seems that Anyone demanding resignation or removal of Supervisor Dumler (D-Albemarle) must ALSO DEMAND removal or resignation of DELEGATE FARISS (R-Albemarle) for the same reasons: gender violence!

The Daily Progress reported in Octobe...r 2011, during the campaign that Mr Fariss won:

Republican candidate Matt Fariss of Rustburg was named in an emergency protective order in 2002 that required him to stay away from a Lynchburg woman. Fariss campaign manager said Wednesday that Fariss was not available for comment....
Fariss, who has refused to talk to The News & Advance of Lynchburg about any of his legal issues, is getting financial support from state Republican Party officials for his campaign, which is making heavy use of mailed brochures. Some of them describe his family values.
A Lynchburg police officer asked a city magistrate to issue an emergency protective order on March 9, 2002, that required Fariss to stay away from a Lynchburg woman.
The officer request said the woman stated to me that Fariss broke through her back door to gain entry into her house when she told him to leave. History of violence.

The Police report notes 'History of violence'.

If anyone has not demanded the resignation or removal of Honorable Mr Fariss - for history of violence - one wonders about motivations in demanding resignation or removal of Honorable Mr Dumler - for history of violence

We support requesting any elected official who has committed violence - against humans or against animals - to resign from those duties.

In Southern Albemarle County that would include Honorable Mr Dumler and Honorable Mr Fariss.
How Stupid

As written on other article posting:

"Agree, he should go. Too much distraction.

However, when are the taxpayers going to wise up and get rid of Mr Boyd. Can't believe his arrogance of building a bypass and getting rid of volunteers. The vast amount of money he is raping the taxpayers of is insane.
Tell me again about his wonderful handling of taxpayer money; he can spend $2 MILLION dollars and recover with "user taxes" the amount of $345 THOUSAND."

Many politicians have done far worse ( including one in the most high position) and they could not be impeached. How stupid to think something should be done to a lowly BOS person.
But, I agree with prior posting, if you go after on, then go after the others.

I rarely find myself in agreement with the tea party, but Dumler should resign. His behavior is reprehensible, his presence is a distraction, and he sets a terrible example. This isn't a matter where political opinions differ. He committed and admitted to a crime, and should not serve.

There is just something fishy about his plea. He pled to a lesser charge and in return they will not pursue charges brought by two other victims. I know if I came forward about a sexual battery charge and was told that he pled guilty to another charge. We are not going to investigate your claims. CASE CLOSED I would let everyone know what he did. I would not just say OK.

Of course Dumler should resign- he committed a crime. But when you think back I guess the republicans can't do any crimes- look at who the republicans put up to run for President- Newt Gingrich who had already been ousted from his position by the ethics committee- he was having affairs behind his wife's back.

Then they put up others to run for republicans that have no shame- Mitt Romney a draft dodger and protester against his own Country but then plays the part of a being a bully.

And then yes the admirable Sarah Palin who talked about family values but couldnt keep her own family in check!!!

I think it might be a good idea to throw everybody out of government- republicans and democrats!!! We would be better off I think.

At least two of the three you mentioned had the INTEGRITY to step down. Where is Dumbler's integrity??

Due to the scandal, Haggard went on administrative leave from New Life saying "I am voluntarily stepping aside from leadership so that the overseer process can be allowed to proceed with integrity. I hope to be able to discuss this matter in more detail at a later date.

Foley resigned from Congress on September 29, 2006 acting on a request by the Republican Leadership after allegations surfaced that he had sent suggestive emails and sexually explicit instant messages to underage males who had formerly served and were at that time serving as Congressional pages.

your descriptions are not relegated to liberals, towit: Congressman Don Lukens , Congressman Mark Foley, Congressman Robert Bauman, Congressman Dan Crane, and Senator Strom Thurmond.
Neither party has a lock on the issue of sex offenses. Although these examples are of adults with underage children and not 2 adults.
Just trying to keep it honest up in here.

Mr. Fariss was not convicted of a crime 11 FREAKING years ago, dingbat.

Try not to let your hatred cloud your judgment.

Dumbler is an admitted sex criminal. If you want to make this political, fine. But the longer he stays in office the more your side (the left) looks bad. The more excuses you make, the more you try to deflect, the more you rationalize, the more obfuscative you become the worse the Progs look. Forget not that raging "War on Women" you folks promulgated to scare young women a few months ago....

Now, you've got a bag of flaming manure on your doorstep. You can either stomp it out, kick it away or try to tell everyone its really an exotic aromatic incense and that smell is something you should tolerate or ignore.

Decisions decisions....

There is a difference though. An Emergency Protective Order lasts for 3 days; if the victim feels the order needs to be continued, she goes to court to get a full Order of Protection. A woman (alleged victim) told a police officer that Mike Ferris broke through her back door and said there was a history of violence. The officer, acting on her story, rightfully requested an order of protection. But it never went any further. There was no trial, no hearing, no conviction of any kind of wrong-doing, no plea agreement...this is really comparing apples to oranges. I am not affiliated with either political party, just pointing out that these are not similar occurrences. There are plenty of convicted creeps in both parties to use as examples of elected officials engaging in illegal activities - no need to drag unproven allegations against a politician into the discussion.

Ah, so, dear person

a. you believe that morality have some 'bubble' of limitations? that violence is only of interest within some time-limited 'bubble'?

BUT, it is widely known in scientific, medical and other experience that violence can produce effects - such as PTSD, anxiety responses, etc - years and decades after the act of violence

b. you believe that a crime that involve sexual terms is 'awful'er'?

BUT, acts of sexual violence have their impacts fundatmentally as VIOLENCE, not sex. And, a woman so terrified that she called police when someone is breaking down her door to get AT HER, might experience that as sexual threat. So, sexual violence is VIOLENCE, and violence can USE SEX. Both Honorable Mr Dumler and Honorable Mr Fariss committed acts of violence, and particularly gender violence.

The Police report on Mr Fariss specicially cites 'History of violence' as reported by the DP.

We have asked for both to be asked to resign, because of 'history of violence'.
That appears fair, right-minded, and on point, that violence is wrong should not be condoned in elected officials.

Asking Honorable Mr Dumler to resign and NOT ASKING Honorable Mr Fariss to resign appears UN-fair, PARTISAN-minded, and wrong-pointed; not making violence the issue, but rather making a person you don't like the issue.

Morality is fair, right, and pointed truly. Your analysis is UN-fair, PARTISAN, and wrong-pointed.

Our point remains valid: ask any elected official with history of violence to resign. Honorable Mr Fariss has a record of a 'History of violence'. Honorable Mr Dumler has a record of a history of violence.

No, Fariss doesn't.

All you are citing is a police report from 11 years ago for an emergency PO that didn't go beyond that. One instance from 11 years ago does not a history make.

You, however, have a history of idiocy so please resign from posting.
