Matt Richardson’s parting shot against Pam Roach

Senate candidate Matt Richardson sent me a statement after learning Tuesday night he would be handily defeated by Sen. Pam Roach. Needless to say in this nasty race, it’s not a congratulation of his opponent:

Roach lied about a criminal record I don’t have to stay in office, and defamed me and my family in the process. Our district will continue to suffer for this decision and I wish her ill for what she does and continues to do to other people. Hopefully the Senate will expel her at the next opportunity she gives them. Now, it’ll be the only way to be rid of her as the cancer she is in this district.

We’ve written on the criminal charges in question and what’s been said about them: See here, here and here.

The race is over, but it’s probably not the last time the names Roach and Richardson are mentioned in the same sentence. There’s the legal fallout from the campaign, and Roach says she will file legislation connected to teacher disciplinary records, which became an issue in the race.

    Daisy Dog’s parting shot against Matt Richardson:

    I wish him ill for what he does and continues to do to other people. Matt is simply a great representation of evil incarnate. I just want him to resign from his council position, sell his house, and disappear from my community…… CYA! Wouldn’t wanna be ya!

  2. Matt Richardson = tool.

    Matt Richardson is a tool. The big problem here is that so is Pam Roach. They aren’t in my district, but it is really a sign of our political times when all that the citizens of that particular district have to choose from to represent them is a couple of complete tools.

  4. Matt, I defended you to several people who told me you were a skeeze. I like to give fellow R’s the benefit of the doubt but your statement is truly nasty. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of someone “wishing” another “ill”, especially one who claims to be Christian. I recently moved to the 31st and I must say I’m glad I didn’t vote for you. Shame on you. You need to man up and apologize to Pam.

    How predictable. Matt is just showing his true colors. Remember when he claimed to be the most “civil” candidate? What more would any one expect from a child rapist? Thanks Matt.

    When will the Recall Matt Richardson campaign begin?
