What a biased headline: "Fauquier helps Gade win GOP Senate nomination ". Didn't Fauquier help Webb win Democratic 5th CD Nomination? What gives? Even if each candidate got only one vote out of Fauquier, it would help their victory on the statewide/districtwide level.

Your reading comprehension fails miserably.

This is nonsense. If you are tried and then imprisoned, you have received due process.
What's this all got to do with an article reporting on political primaries?

Democrats are hardly 'democratic'.
Note the democrats calling for police to be tried and imprisoned without due process.
