Democrats now wary of expelling Morrissey (Richmond Times-Dispatch)

Stephen J. Farnsworth, a professor of political science at the University of Mary Washington, said Morrissey succeeded in his main goal — making it more difficult for the legislature to expel him.

“The failure of Democrats to put forward a candidate who could beat Morrissey has created a new problem for them,” Farnsworth said. “The voters in the district knew exactly what they were getting, and they selected him.”

Democrats, who consider themselves as belonging to the party of voting rights, are now wondering if they want to defy the will of the voters of that district. “Doing so would have at least a whiff of disenfranchisement to it,” Farnsworth said.
