    Virginia Lawmaker to Serve in Jail as Well as State Legislature

    Make a law, backdate it, throw the bum out.

    To be clear, late-night votes might be a bit of a problem for Joseph Morrissey, the newly sworn-in Virginia House delegate who must report to his jail cell about 7:30 each evening.

    But Mr. Morrissey — embroiled in a scandal involving sexual relations with a minor — appears undaunted. After resigning his seat in disgrace last month, the former Democrat ran in the special election as an independent, handily beating his Republican and Democratic challengers. He won nearly 43 percent of the vote Tuesday, in a largely-minority district that twists through various counties near Richmond.

    Hang on..... We have got us a huge problem here. When Republican Michael Grimm was indicted, Democrats at DP raised holy hell about him serving in congress. But, in regard to Mr. Morrissey, I hear crickets from them. What's up with that?

    Indicted, vice convicted. What is the problem?

    I'd be fine with banning people with misdemeanor convictions from serving in public office--it would have spared us the Bush-Cheney years.

    I did? When did I do that?
    We became a great nation not because we are a nation of cynics. We became a great nation because we are a nation of believers - Lindsey Graham
    I’ve always believed that America is an idea, not defined by its people but by its ideals. - Lindsey Graham
