So says the well connected Mike Belefski. Mike was the Northern Virginia Field Director for Bill Bolling during his run for Governor. Much more about Mike on Google. Mike has posted today on his Twitter account and on his Facebook page that Governor McDonnell will resign on Monday.
Bill Bolling’s lifelong dream to become Governor is about to come true. It also appears that Willie Deutsch was right.
UPDATE: More on the Governor’s troubles here. We simply cannot have a trial begin just before the November elections. It will sink our republican candidates.
UPDATE part Deux: Mike Belefski is reporting on Facebook that the mainstream media will be covering the story this weekend.
The Richmonder has confirmed that the Governor has been in negotiation with the federal authorities. He says the First Couple is “now trying to avoid a felony conviction in exchange for a quick and clean exit from Virginia’s Governor’s Mansion.” How sad that is. Story here.
Saturday UPDATE: Rumors abound in Richmond that there will be a special meeting/conference call on Sunday for the House of Delegates, prior to the Governor’s big announcement. I assume that means a republican caucus call and not the full HOD.
Anyone else find it odd that the Governor’s spokesman is in San Diego “for work”? And without comment about the Governor’s impending resignation? https://twitter.com/jtuckermartin
Finally, a denial, sorta, http://dailycaller.com/2013/07/13/mcdonnell-aides-deny-resignation-rumors-are-true/ So he won’t resign Monday? Will it be Tuesday? Friday? Nothing on his twitter account,https://twitter.com/paulshanks
Much more coming on Sunday.
Early Sunday Update: The Governor’s resignation tied to the Travyon Martin verdict? So says TooConservative. Seems unlikely but the verdict is now behind us.
Second Sunday Update: The above link no longer works. It seems all posts and comments critical of the Governor have been scrubbed from TooConservative.
An excellent post by Delegate Scott Surovell on the behavior of our Governor here.
Late Sunday Update: HOD conference call for tonight was cancelled. I have no idea what that might mean.
If Governor McDonnell does not resign tomorrow, he needs to make a statement of some kind about the allegations against him. This has gone on long enough.
