Before the VA 2nd CD debate on August 19, 2010 the Tracker hired by the Republican Party of VA on behalf of Scott Rigell followed an employee of the Democratic Party of VA into the high school lobby where the event would be held.

The Tracker, Ben Rothenberg, immediately after introducing himself made sure to explain that he is the son of Political Analyst Stuart Rothenberg of the Rothenberg Report. Rothenberg said that because of his father, "I use the press to my advantage whenever, however I wish." He continued saying, "I have contacts all across the board. I know everyone at the top of every radio station, every TV station, every network, every agency." Rothenberg said, "It has already been harnessed," in reference to the world wide media's coverage of Rep. Nye.

Rothenberg elaborated on his power through association by saying that he is a friend of Andy Stern's (of SEIU) son. Earlier in the evening he spoke of having personal connections to Nancy Pelosi's senior staff.

Rothenberg said that he used the press to ruin the campaigns of the DPVA's 2009 statewide ticket after candidates made negative comments about his father.

Rothenberg then sharply contradicted himself by saying that liberals and the Democratic Party have control over the media.
