But it might come as a surprise to followers of Virginia politics that the sitting Commonwealths Attorney in Loudoun County, the ignominious Jim Plowman, now has to battle at least three bar complaints that if heard fairly should result in the loss of his bar license. - Not Eve Marie Barner on Not Larry SabatoNEMB goes on to detail the incestuous relationships between people who worked on the Vogel campaign and the defense of Jim Plowman.

Thankfully the Democrats won control of the state Senate this November, so Jill's ability to make mischief will be limited.
