The Davis duo speaks (although they probably regret it)
This morning, Lowell has a very important diary up concerning one of the next surefire Democratic takeover seats for Virginia. Former Delegate Chap Peterson (D-VA) will be challenging Jeannemarie Devolites Davis for her state Senate seat in November. This is great news for Virginia Democrats and horribly frightening news for Virginia Republicans. Both the WaPo article and Lowell's diary are great, and I cannot wait to support Chap in any way I can. However, I would be remiss if I didn't point out a line in the article that is, in my opinion, worth discussing.
Said Davis: "Jeannemarie has won four terms without being married to me. To sit there and say it's not okay for a woman who won the seat in her own right to serve. . . . Chap is a fine young man, but it looks to me that you have an ambitious politician who lost his last race, looking for an office."That's exactly right, Congressman Davis, you weren't married...you were just having an affair. How about the whole story, instead of half truths and borderline lies?
