Gruber wasn’t kidding. Update to a previous story.
Via The Republic
A Virginia lawmaker newly re-elected despite serving time for a sex scandal hitched a ride from the jailhouse to the statehouse Wednesday for his swearing-in, even as legislative leaders discussed how to throw him out.
Joseph D. Morrissey, who was re-elected Tuesday, put his right hand in the air and pledged to uphold the constitutions of the United States and Virginia. Underneath his suit, he wore an ankle bracelet.
Morrissey currently spends his nights in jail for a contributing to the delinquency of a minor conviction. Prosecutors accused him of having sex with a 17-year-old girl who worked for him. Morrissey and the teenager, now 18 and pregnant, have denied it.
Morrissey said he didn’t find out he had won re-election until after he had returned to jail.
