In case you missed it, here is the video and a link to The Tennessean story of earlier this week on Victoria Jackson, former SNL cast member who is now a tea party activist running for a seat on the Williamson County Commission. I have seen Ms Jackson at a couple political events and while she is entertaining, I do not think she is ready for political prime time. She seems as politically shallow and scatterbrained as her character.
Last month Ms Jackson made news for falsely alleging that an offensive sex education text book was being used in local schools. It was not. (link) Such reckless claims discredits the movement. Also, I am uncomfortable with her rants against Muslims, which seem more based on prejudice than any reasoned objection to radical political Islam or security threats.
I doubt Ms Jackson will be elected. I would not vote for her.
by Jamie Page, The Tennessean, Mar. 18, 2014 - When a Muslim, Daoud Abudiab, moved in near Victoria Jackson’s suburban neighborhood, she responded with a post on her website titled, “Civilization Jihad, Hits Home (my back yard, literally).”
It’s one of several anti-Islamic entries on the former “Saturday Night Live” star’s site. Abudiab said, “She has friends who support her in making Williamson County a scary place to live for some of us.” (link)
