Sabato speaks about UVA controversy

with one comment

It seems that no one has been as disappointed with the leadership controversy at UVA than one of the most high-profile members of the University’s faculty, political science professor Larry Sabato.

Sabato, one of the most quoted political analysts in America has more than 39 thousand followers on twitter and has made his opinion on the case very clear.

Among other things he called on Governor Bob McDonnell to get involved. Something the Governor did today when he sent the Board of Visitors a letter warning them that unless they come to some sort of resolution by Tuesday, he will ask for their resignations.

Kelly Avellino covered that portion of the story for NBC12 on Friday.

I spoke to Sabato at length about the UVA controversy, a situation that he has not given any TV interviews about. Our interview came before McDonnell issued his letter to the Board, but Sabato’s comments are still relevant considering the situation is still very much unresolved.
