In an effort to appeal to Southwest Virginia voters, Democrat gubernatorial candidate now claims he is from southwest Virginia:
"Growing up in southwest Virginia taught me many important values, like the importance of hard work, loyalty, and the power of education," Deeds declared in an appeal for financial support sent by e-mail on Sunday, August 2, 2009. The e-mail directed recipients to a page on the Deeds' website that features three short videos and invites citizens to participate in a tour across Southwest and Southside.
The only problem is it is not true. Deeds is from Bath county, which is a beautiful place, but it is not in southwest Virginia. Some politicians will say anything to get elected..
