New emails outline Puckett job offer


    New emails made public last night detail Del. Terry Kilgore’s negotiations with State Senator Phil Puckett for a cushy job at the Tobacco Commission, weeks before Puckett resigned his seat and swung control of the legislature to the Tea Party.

    These emails are the latest sign Speaker Bill Howell and Terry Kilgore used state jobs as leverage in their scheme to deny health care to 400,000 Virginians. These sort of underhanded schemes and backroom deals are unacceptable.  

    It is not too late if you have any friends or family who wish to add their name to our demand for a full investigation.
