Another day of Republican idiocy in the Virginia General Assembly. See below for Exhibit A, as in “adultery” (specifically, Republicans – with the exception of Sen. William Stanley – voting to keep Virginia as one of 21 states where adultery remains illegal). By the way, note that even the freaking FAMILY FOUNDATION (!) supported Sen. Scott Surovell’s bill that would have “[reduced] the penalty for adultery from a Class 4 misdemeanor to a civil penalty of not more than $250.”  But noooo…not most Republican Senators on the Senate Courts of (In)Justice Committee. Ugh.

There's no paywall on Blue Virginia, and we definitely want to keep it that way! If you want to help support our work, you can donate here - thanks! Also, you can sign up for our weekly email list here.
