Today, news broke that Del. David Ramadan joins Ken Cuccinelli as yet another law maker caught hiding special gifts they have received because of their position as elected officials.
Lynchburg’s News and Advance reported today that David Ramadan failed to disclose an all expense paid trip funded by the Taiwanese government he took in July of 2012 as required by the commonwealth. Other lawmakers on the trip reported the gift at a value of $4000.
“David Ramadan needs to come clean and explain why he’s hiding special gifts he’s received from foreign governments,” Retired Air Force Major John Bell, Ramadan’s Democratic challenger said. “In the wake of the Star Scientific scandal this is becoming a disturbing trend. What other gifts is he keeping secret? Virginians need to know we can trust our leaders.”
