Following the drama of the RPV Executive Director hosting amnesty activists two days after taking the job comes now rumors of him being the subject of an active investigation involving insider trading. The story — still unconfirmed — is that during his tenure on the Louisa County Board of Supervisors he became aware of an economic development deal in the county and snapped up a bunch of land parcels that would be part of that development. Reporters in the mainstream media are working on the story which I expect to break within the next day or so.
Funny how when Eric Cantor and Ed Gillespie manage to slam in their own people at the head of the Republican Party of Virginia there’s a never-ending string of scandals that emerge involving bad policy, questionable ethics and corporatist greed for our opponents to churn into campaign fodder. Yet somehow these are the ones who are supposed to possess the sole ability to bring victory to “conservative” principles in the state.
UPDATE: Julian Walker with the Virginia Pilot is first out of the gate with the story. Ouch.
