Morrissey Wins Special Election from Jail (Richmond Times-Dispatch)

Richmond Times-Dispatch “This is a victory for the ages,” said Stephen J. Farnsworth, a professor for political science at the University of Mary Washington. “Rarely has a politician with as many problems emerged victorious. For a man who has more baggage than Amtrak to win speaks volumes for his ability to connect with the district despite all of his liabilities.”

But Morrissey’s fifth victory may be short lived, Farnsworth said. “There will be a significant interest in expelling him from the legislature, and that interest will not disappear in the wake of this victory,” he said.
