It’s been quite the two weeks since Norm Leahy and J.R. Hoeft got together for their last podcast. Scandal has rocked the Commonwealth, as well as a rare outbreak of bipartisan governance.
In this podcast, we discuss:
- The hypocrisy of the left/Virginia embroiled in scandal
- Race relations in Virginia/”400 Years of Slavery”
- Tax conformity/budget plan

Yesterday I sent draft language to my colleagues on the first step of an impeachment action regarding the Lt. Governor. There has been an enormous amount of sincere and thoughtful feedback which has led to additional conversations that need to take place before anything is filed.
