HB 1160 PASSES! NOW I ENCOURAGE Governor McDonnell to SIGN IT! ONE MORE THING: MONDAY for COURT of APPEALS!

I have it on fairly good authority that the Governor’s office keeps up with this and other political blogs so let’s use that for this purpose:  I encourage Governor McDonnell to sign the HB1160.  Send a message.  Virginia will not cooperate with unconstitutional indefinite detention without legal counsel.  I believe Governor McDonnell will do the right thing.  I have been acquainted with him for many years.  So I encourage him to sign HB1160.  Send the message:  Virginia says no.

On a different note, while I have the Governor’s ear:  If the legislature adjourns without approving a judge for the Court of Appeals, the best candidate, the ONLY ONE with 11-0 vote of Highly Qualified of the Virginia State Bar is Monica T. Monday of Roanoke.  She would be evenhanded, she’s a great writer and appellate advocate and WILL be an asset to the Court.  I would appoint her without delay.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
