Crazy Money Behind Crazy Election in Virginia

 

AUBURN, AL- A recount followed by a Court decision means that a key race for a legislative seat in Virginia is a tie. A coin flip will decide the winner. The winner will decide control of the House of Delegates.

Virginia, one of the few states that allow for unlimited political giving by individuals and corporations, opens the door for a handful of elites to impose their personal, financial, or ideological agendas on the people of the Commonwealth.
