The Commonwealth of Virginia held a special election yesterday, looking to elect a new delegate for the seat held by Joseph D. Morrissey. The voters re-elected him. Morrissey allegedly had sexual relations with a minor and is presently in jail. ((I wonder if he is the first person to win an election from behind bars.)) He was forced to give up his seat, pending the outcome of this special election. I am still scratching my head over this one.
Well, voters decided to keep him. I would be so ashamed if I were a Virginia resident. I suppose I can’t be mad at them, since the point of a democracy is for the people to select who they desire, and that’s what they did. Morrissey is accused of having relations with his then teenage secretary (who’s pregnant). She denies having sex with Morrissey even though her nude photos were found on his phone.
Hmm. We need to get Maury on the case and see if Morrissey is really the father.
