Charlottesville - Sen. Creigh Deeds, the Democratic nominee for governor, released the following statement on Monday regarding the conduct of Del. Phil Hamilton (R-Newport News).
"For the past seven years, Virginians from all walks of life have worked hard to earn our ranking as the best managed state in the nation. Phil Hamilton's actions and subsequent denials not only undermine that effort, but more importantly, betray the public trust. His conduct deserves far more than simple 'disappointment.' It deserves our outrage. We cannot turn the other cheek to this type of behavior. He should resign from the House of Delegates immediately."
