This is deeply upsetting. The potential of taxpayer dollars getting laundered into campaign contributions is entirely beyond the pale. Any candidate getting campaign contributions from Kemper Consulting (which is just about every state-level elected official in Virginia) should think long and hard about where that money is coming from. If it weren’t for local governments spending taxpayer dollars on lobbying in Richmond, issues like these wouldn’t be cropping up.
Really, what in the heck is a government body doing hiring lobbyists to focus on another body of elected officials in the first place?
