Interesting story. Trying to find out what ever came about this story...

Would I hang our with Phil, of course he's a fun guy, do I want him representing me and handeling the city's needs, heck no. Still waiting for someone to bring up the fact he has a $30,000 a year countryclub membership to James River Country club that he was able to convince the board to put the membership in his wife's name so that his constituents would not know about it. Kind of like the check he gets from CNU made out to his wife. How did she come about the job at CNU. Not hard to connect the dots.

Phil Hamilton is as corrupt as they come. I have been a neighbor of his for a long time. The sad thing is that this corruption seems to be the way of business for politicians.

Sad thing is that I like Phil and his family, but with all the current problems government is trying to solve, corruption has no place, not even for a friend.

The problem is, its not just Hamilton. Glenn Oder is as shifty as Hamilton. Oder likes to brag that he is "fighting" the payday lenders. Yet it was Oder who voted YES on HB940 in 2002 that let Payday lenders into Virginia. And Oder has taken thousands in campaign contributions from the payday lenders over the years! Oder also wants credit for "abolishing" the HRTA. Yet he was the one who voted YES on HB3020 to create it. What a phony, two faced politician. If the party faithful are going to line up, like lemmings and support these crooks, then they have no one to blame but themselves, when people shun and avoid republicans. You can't be faithful to two-faced liars and frauds. It doesn't work both ways!

He's back on the list http://www.rpv.org/candidates/
but maybe the voters will make sure he's not there for the official roll call in Jan.

What a novel concept. His constituents get to determine who they want to represent them.

Diamonstein is a disgrace. Prostituting himself to get a Page position with the DPVA and go to the national convention in Denver only to stick his stiletto into "fellow" Democrats back.

Who, I wonder, was the bright and engaged young man or woman whose spot Diamonstein stole with his claim of being a Democrat? Shame on you, shame shame shame!

Those who are quick to shun others had better watch their own backs. Transparency is generally a good thing, except when you are making sausage, and sadly, that is what legislation often is.
Who lost out in this matter and who gained from it? In the balance, however regrettable the mistake, is the reaction appropriate for the offense, or is this about settling old scores?

Thanks for the post, David. Good eye.

It should be noted that this list also does not include Catherine Crabill (99th district), who has been shunned by Republican leaders.
