A Gift from Del. Robert Marshall: Priceless
Each year when it is time for members of the General Assembly to report what gifts, trips and dinners they have received from lobbyists and others, Del. Phillip A. Hamilton (R-Newport news) always gets a special nod.
Hamilton, a Republican from Newport News, meticulously records every gift he receives -- even though many of them fall below the $50 threshold for reporting.
This year, Hamilton's records, released Sunday by the Virginia Public Access Project, includes a membership card from the Richmond YMCA, a bust of Thomas Jefferson from the folks at Poplar Forest and a fruit basket from the Virginia Agribusiness Council.
The list also included one from Rep. Robert G. Marshall, R-Prince William, an avid photographer who carries his camera with him everywhere. Marshall gave Hamilton a DVD with 1,496 photos of Republican legislators. No price was listed.
