    Interesting that VA and NJ have their gubernatorial elections on the same odd year after the POTUS election .
    Of course if he committed a crime.

    Besides, not putting on a front of fake morality doesn't mean you have no standards... it more likely means your standards are actually real.

    It's a shame. As a resident of Virginia I opposed his original election as Governor but overtime was quite impressed with the job he did in office. I had hoped at one point he would venture into national politics following his term in Virginia, but I am quite disappointed with his actions. It's sad to see a smart and effective politician being indicted with such accusations. I guess my original view about the Governor was correct.

    Agreed. This is disappointing. Such potential apparently undone by small time greed.

    One of the top stars of the GOP crashing and burning? This seems to be a trend rather than this being an outlier.....
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.
