Virginia Conversations: Ethics & High Office in the Old Dominion

MoneyGiftAs Governor Bob McDonnell continues to come under fire for accepting gifts from businessman Jonnie Williams, there are more calls to strengthen Virginia’s ethic laws.  That, plus how McDonnell’s woes might affect the race for Governor… as well as his own legacy.  Host May-Lily Lee talks with Dr. Robert Roberts, Professor of Political Science at James Madison University, he’s also written and co-authored several books and articles on politics and ethics.  We’re also joined by Dr. Bob Holsworth, with Decide Smart.  He’s also the Founding Director of the Center for Public Policy and the L. Douglas Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs at Virginia Commonwealth University.

    I note that your brief mentions the Governor’s ethical problems but not that Ken Cuccinelli has ethical issues of his own . . . though they were clearly pointed out by the guest professors on this program? How come?!
