Washington Post: Evaluating Governor McDonnell

Washington Post

Professor of Political Science and Director of the Center for Leadership and Media Studies Stephen Farnsworth discussed Gov. Bob McDonnell’s time in office in The Washington Post article “Social Issues Cloud McDonnell’s Ups and Downs.” The article appeared in the Monday, May 21 issue of the newspaper.

In addition, Dr. Farnsworth’s op-ed “Coming Distractions: Pinocchio Politics” appeared in the Sunday, May 20 edition of The Free Lance-Star. In the op-ed, Farnsworth argues that although personal attacks have long been a feature of American politics, the 2012 election discourse will be worse than past years.
