More Chutzpah

Posted by David Keelan on Friday, October 20, 2006

Chuck Cave switches to the GOP.

Yeah Chuck you have my vote, NOT. 

After being elected Sheriff as a Republican Cave quietly switched to the Democratic party.

When Cave switched he didn’t do it as colorfully as Wayne Livesay.

The reason Chuck doesn’t have my vote is that I don’t like political opportunism.  He lost the democratic primary fair and square.  I think Chuck Cave is only concerned about one thing and one thing only – securing his pension.  This guy is spreading fear, uncertainty, and doubt among Repuclicans and Democrats regarding their respective candidates.

I encourage anyone reading this blog to not vote for or support Chuck Cave.

    What is more outragous is this is not the first, second, or third time he has switched parties. In 1990 he registered as a democrat, 1996 he changed to republican, in 2002 he changed back to a democrat, and now he is back as a republican.
    He lost the 2006 democratic primary by 1037 votes. I guess Chuck likes the pay check and could care less about the democratic process.

    Well, the Howard County voters weren’t fooled by the political party switching, the opponent sign removal tactics by his Chief Deputy and Campaign Manager, the lack of an updated website for his Office, the lack of support for his sworn deputies in obtaining collective bargaining, the lack of support for his sworn deputies in obtaining a fair workers’ compensation bill passed in the Maryland legislature, the hiring of his Chief Deputy’s wife as the Office receptionist, the moving of his Office from the Court House complex area to the Dorsey Building in Columbia, etc, etc, etc. The all out “write in” campaign was a bust. The voters decided and Sheriff Cave will soon be gone. Most deputies have lost all respect for the man. It’s sad that he didn’t conceed to Jim Fitzgerald and throw his endorsement behind him. His Office would have been healing faster and there could have been a smoother transfer of leadership. Everything is up in the air right now, as he has not conceeded defeat in the General Election either. Everyone wishes him well and hope he goes out gracefully and with some shread of dignity.
