    Why is the term "rap sheet", a term with negative connotations, being used by VOSD to describe Faulconer's record?

    I've known Kevin a long time. I worked a little on his campaign where he lost to Zucchet. After Mike crashed I worked much harder to get Kevin elected, personally assembling over a thousand yard signs, walking precincts etc. He is a cautious politician, not perfect by any means, but definitely not an ideologue. He understands that successful politics is about compromise. I've found him to be very honest. If he disagrees with you on something, he'll tell you. When I look at the other two leading candidates, their knowns and unknowns, Faulconer is an easy choice for me.
