BREAKING- Bob McDonnell on Del. Phil Hamilton situation
Republican Candidate for governor of Virginia Bob McDonnell just released the following statement on the situation involving Republican Del. Phil Hamilton:
“Elected officials must keep the highest ethical standards in order to maintain the public trust. From what I have seen of published news accounts containing emails and admissions, it appears that Delegate Hamilton has violated the public trust. Based on this public information it would be in the best interests of his constituents for him to step down, but if he believes that the due process of a full inquiry by the House Ethics Advisory Panel will clear his name, he should have a full opportunity to present his case. Any such inquiry should be commenced immediately and conducted expeditiously.”
