Major Conflicts of Interest and a Potential Felony: Bob Good’s Financial Disclosure Controversy Keeps Getting Worse

When Republican Congressional candidate Bob Good recently filed a financial disclosure form that listed no assets, he immediately aroused suspicion. As it turns out, that disclosure was false, and new reporting shows the updated disclosure form Good filed last week is much worse for him. 

Good’s updated form shows multiple conflicts of interest from his time on the Campbell County Board of Supervisors. Good voted to award major contracts to two companies he held stock in – including Abbott Laboratories, a major opioids manufacturer – without disclosing he had a financial interest in those companies at the time. And to make things even worse, Good’s failure to disclose those conflicts of interest could be a felony under Virginia law. 

“It’s no wonder why Bob Good wanted to mislead people by failing to disclose the assets he owned. We’ve seen Washington politicians use insider information to keep their portfolios secure from the recent economic downturn and use their positions to personally profit. Bob Good is making it perfectly clear he’ll make the same corrupt back-room deals if given the chance,” said DPVA Communications Director Grant Fox
