“Del. Scott A. Surovell - “It’s astounding to me. The House Republican caucus will do anything” Delegate Surovell implies that his fellow Democrat, Senator Puckett, is accepting what amounts to a bribe. Does he really mean to insult the man’s integrity that way? We know a Democratic Governor would never, … “McAuliffe appointed longtime GOP operative Boyd Marcus, who had crossed party lines to endorse McAuliffe in the campaign, to a six-figure position on the Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Board. Republicans blocked the appointment, saying the job was essentially “sold” for the endorsement” ….. Never mind.

It seems more likely that not everyone has accepted the Governor’s position. At least Virginia legislature has a standard of not confirming permanent judicial appointments of relatives of sitting legislators. Perhaps Delegate Surovell missed that part? Did Delegate Surovell indicate where all the funding is going to come from three or four years from now when the Federal subsidy inevitably gets cut?
