(Loudoun County, Virginia) Embattled, pro-criminal Commonwealth Attorney Buta Biberaj has been issued a stunning rebuke by Loudoun County voters in Tuesday’s election.
With no path to victory for Biberaj, voters have sent a clear signal they want a Commonwealth’s Attorney who takes crime seriously and runs the office with integrity.
Buta Biberaj has failed to live up to the great responsibilities of her office, and the results of this election reflect that.
Despite being outspent 10-to-1, Bob Anderson’s grassroots campaign delivered a winning commonsense message of actually doing the job he was elected to do: prosecuting criminals and keeping Loudoun County families safe. Bob Anderson will always support law enforcement, and will return accountability and stability to the Commonwealth Attorney’s office.
Buta Biberaj was rejected by voters because she lost their trust to do the job, fostered a culture of chaos and instability in her office, refused to take crime seriously, and intentionally misled the public.
Biberaj’s tenure of failure will soon come to an end, and Loudoun County will have a Commonwealth’s Attorney in Bob Anderson who will go to work for them on day one.
NOT TRUSTED TO DO HER JOB
Sept. 13, 2022
A Virginia judge has booted liberal Loudoun County Commonwealth’s Attorney Buta Biberaj from an appeal case citing “concerns” over “impartiality.” The case involves a Virginia father who was arrested last year while speaking out at a school board meeting after his daughter was sexually assaulted in a public school bathroom by a male student.
“The concerns about the public confidence in the integrity of the prosecution as well as the Defendant’s concerns regarding the impartiality of the Commonwealth’s Attorney are sufficiently grounded. As a result, the integrity of the Defendant’s due process rights is in jeopardy and must be protected,” Plowman wrote.

UNWILLING TO PROSECUTE CRIMINALS
Mar. 14, 2023
Can Commonwealth’s Attorney Buta Biberaj, the county’s top prosecutor, be trusted to perform her role in the criminal justice system adequately?
Loudoun County Supervisor Kristen Umstad (D-Leesburg) argued, “I am very concerned that law enforcement is going to be left without support” in misdemeanor cases because of what Biberaj “is not willing to do in general district court.” Without a commitment to rescind the memo, “I think this is the only option for keeping the public safe,” Umstattd said.Kershner concurred. “I think this boils down to a level of confidence,” he said. “I don’t think anyone up here … can say, we really understand what Ms. Biberaj is going to do with low level misdemeanors.”.
A CRIMINAL’S GET-OUT-OF-JAIL-FREE CARD
Oct. 23, 2022
In Loudoun County, Democratic Supervisor Kristen Umstattd, an attorney and former Mayor of Leesburg, is sharing her concerns publicly for the first time about Democratic Loudoun County Commonwealth Attorney Buta Biberaj.
“I think my main concern is that she [Biberaj] is not meeting the requirements that a prosecutor needs to meet and that is protecting victims, protecting their rights, protecting the public at large, making sure your office and you operate with the utmost fairness and integrity,” Umstattd told 7News WJLA-TV. “Her philosophy, she has boasted about it, her philosophy is that she should get as many people out of the jail as possible.”
INTENTIONALLY MISLEADING LOUDOUN COUNTY CITIZENS
Oct. 18, 2022
At Tuesday’s Loudoun County Board of Supervisors meeting, County Supervisor Kristen Umstattd (D) criticized how County Commonwealth’s Attorney Buta Biberaj (D) handled a recent high-profile case that involved releasing an accused killer from jail.
“When someone makes a mistake and uses the county website to blame an innocent party, the record needs to be corrected,” Umstattd said. “It appears this is what has happened with Loudoun’s Commonwealth’s Attorney in a recent case when she blamed the deputies in the jail for what appeared to be her own missteps. On October 6, 2022, [Biberaj] dropped murder and felony weapons charges against a defendant who was in custody. At the time the [Biberaj] dismissed the charges she failed to get a judicially signed order to keep the defendant in jail. And with no legal order to hold him, the sheriff’s office had to release the defendant.”
I truly wish I could trust the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s version of the facts that that version appears to be incomplete, misleading or false, either because the Commonwealth’s Attorney didn’t know what had happened when she wrote her press release and didn’t know the difference between a transport order and a detention order or because she intended to mislead the public.”
