That sounds like every officer everywhere when dealing with smart-ass kids.  I'm not reading race into this at all.

Yup. I mean, we grew up in a small town. The sheriff used to say shit like this to us all the time to keep us in line.

Mark Herring came out about what he did and has a positive approval rating. Not Kaine/Warner levels, but he clearly handled this correctly.

 

And despite all this trouble starting due to the governor and blackface, it's the black lieutenant governor who's the most underwater due to sexual harassment allegations.

We've only been blue on the big tickets. Very good chance dems flip both chambers this year though.

Hold that thought

Not sure Northam has the credibility anyway.

As tight as some of these races are bound to be, moving even a few people that believe, at the state level at least, there are good Republicans could tip the statehouse

He's tagging different people in each tweet, and he's done this dozens of times in the past couple of days.

Repealing so-called right to work, legalizing unionization for state and municipal workers, and marijuana reforms need to be on the list, but good start. Could use to expand the free community college

Some of that is already pre-filed but it would be great to hear a commitment.

The governor is violating the first and second amendment rights of the people of Virginia.

Tensions around gun control in Virginia have been running high since Democrats took control of both legislative chambers, vowing to finally enact many of the gun control proposals that Republicans had rejected for decades.

More than 100 counties, cities and towns around the state have declared themselves “Second Amendment sanctuaries” at crowded public meetings where residents said they feared state officials would try to remove their guns.

Meanwhile, state law enforcement officials and the VCDL say “outside groups” with violent intent began to make plans to join in on the VCDL’s rally, an event that has gone on for years on the legislature’s traditional lobby day. It coincides with the holiday to honor Martin Luther King Jr. because many Virginians are off work and have the opportunity to petition lawmakers on a variety of causes.

We just passed a ban on weapons in capital square, in addition:

The bills that sailed through the state’s Judiciary Committee would require background checks on all firearms purchases, allow law enforcement to temporarily remove guns from people deemed to be a risk to themselves or others, limit handgun purchases to one a month and let localities decide whether to ban weapons from certain events.

 

The National Rifle Association said the new measures “will make it harder for law-abiding Virginians to protect themselves, while doing nothing to stop criminals.”

 

One measure that didn’t pass would have expanded the definition of “assault firearms” under Virginia law, outlaw their possession and prohibit the selling or transfer of any firearm magazine with the capacity for more than 10 rounds of ammunition.
