Republicans Catch Tax Fever in Virginia

We noted below on Halloween Eve that Gov O'Malley is making mischief in Maryland. Today we were surprised to see the Examiner report that the Republicans on the Prince William County Board of Supervisors are equally good at sticking it to their constituents. They are considering raising the property tax rate a whopping 25 percent from .79 to .99 per $100 of assessed value. This is further evidence that the Republican party is in deep trouble in Virginia. Who knows what will happen in the election next Tuesday, but all signs point to deep doo doo for the GOP.

UPDATE: Today's WaPo has a lenghthy article suggesting the formally reliably conservative exurbs in Loudoun County have gone from bright red to purple, or perhaps light blue. No wonder Tom Davis has decided not to run for the Senate; he may have trouble keeping his House seat! (And he has yet to confirm that he will even try to keep it.)
