    Virginians: "New invoices bring taxpayer-paid legal bills for McDonnell gifts scandal to $575,000" in a news story.

    Private attorneys representing the office of Virginia Gov. Robert F. McDonnell and other government officials grappling with federal and state investigations of McDonnell’s interactions with a wealthy political benefactor have now charged taxpayers more than $575,000.
    That came on top of $244,000 the firms had charged earlier in the summer.
    Now, to be fair, the legal fees are not for governor Vaginal Ultrasound himself, they are for staffers where
    “Virginia law provides for situations in which outside counsel must be appointed due to the Office of the Attorney General determining that it has a conflict in a specific case. That is what has occurred in this situation,” Martin said.
    And why, pray tell, is the AG in such a conflict? Because The Cooch, that mad hatter of the ultra right anti abortion, anti gay, anti sex except missionary position, anti climate change scientists and all—and now defeated candidate for governor himself—is involved in the same fucking scandal!

    Chuckle sourly you non-Virginians. I snarl and hope the governor serves time with a general prison population and somehow, some way the soon to be former AG ends up in the same place because he too was involved, at least on the margins, in that pay to play fun and games and even refused to return the goodies.

      I live in Kansas, I don't get many chances to laugh at Republicans stealing taxpayer money in other states.
      Sorry. ;)

      Your beliefs don't make you a better person. Your behavior does.
