It’s bad enough Virginia Democratic Delegate Joe Morrissey had to celebrate being re-elected to office in a jail cell, the result of allegedly having a sexually inappropriate relationship with a teenage girl.
The idiots who re-elected the man can now add to his criminal repertoire four more felonies, after his legal team was charged Wednesday with using forged documents during its defense of the earlier charges, The Washington Free Beacon reported.
According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, police raided Morrissey’s office on the night before a special election called to fill the vacancy he created when he resigned, resulting in the new charges.
Morrissey agreed to resign from office when first charged with having sex with a 17-year-old receptionist, then announced he was going to run for his own seat again, saying he’ll “let the voters decide” if he should remain in office.
Clearly, the bar has lowered considerably in Virginia since George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison.
Morrissey was arrested for violating the terms of his work release to campaign the same day he announced that he would run again, according to the Beacon.
It is through the work release program that he is able to remain active as an elected official, and being a true democrat, he has even sponsored legislation to raise state taxes on tobacco.
