h/t Raising Kaine

In response to the story of Virgil Goode's office using taxpayer resources to promote the gay erotica film "Eden's Curve," residents of Virginia have a planned a protest to call on Goode to come clean.

Raising Kaine

Monday's event comes in response to this weekend's WSLS-10 report that Goode's Danville fax machine was used as the official contact for a film festival in Canada. Responding to the misuse of public funds, Goode's spokesman told WSLS-10 that "nothing in that office happened without Goode's permission.

The film was produced by North Theater's art director, Jerry Meadors, and included a special thanks to Rep. Goode in the credits.

Goode's ties to North Theater have been questioned in the past. In 2003, Goode secured a $150,000 earmark for the theater when the president of the theater's board was a supporter and donor to Goode. Goode's wife and longtime aide also sat on the board.

Details are as follows:

WHO: Local taxpayers

WHAT: Residents ask Virgil Goode to come clean about misuse of taxpayer money

WHERE: Outside of Virgil Goode's Office
437 Main Street
Danville, Va.

WHEN: November 3, 2008
12:30 p.m.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
