    Got anything more substantive than a kid who happens to be holding a dollar bill and a sign? I mean, certainly a weird thing to do if they weren’t paid, but stranger things happen.

      Several eye witnesses who were there, including other Virtucon staffers. It was a Pete ’13 sign on the other side (his signs are one-sided.)

      Riley, I took your word for it on the contents of the sign, plus that appears to be him speaking. Still a tad skeptical, but if somebody saw the money change hands, yeah, that’s a little odd–but we both know it happens. And as you point out, he certainly has the money to make it happen.

      There’s nothing wrong with doing it. Just shows that his support is purchased astroturf and not actual grassroots.

    Love it! Yep, Riley – we are aiming to roll back ALL regulations on business in VA. Just imagine how much our economy would be humming if we harnessed the TRUE (and untapped) power of child labor. Our Commonwealth would be nearly unstoppable! An economic locomotive. Now that is a Big Idea.

      For anyone wondering, this appears to be satire given the comment about harnessing “the TRUE (and untapped) power of child labor.” Until we get confirmation otherwise, please view this as not coming from the real Pete Snyder.
