Hamilton, Under Investigation, Endorsed by Police
Here's one of the most interesting endorsements this campaign season.
Del. Phil Hamilton was endorsed today by the Virginia Police Benevolent Association.
Yes, you read correctly.
The powerful Republican lawmaker from Newport News who is under federal investigation got the backing of more than 2,000 federal, state and local law enforcement officials.
Hamilton is under investigation for negotiating a job offer with Old Dominion University before securing state money for the school. A federal grand jury served the Newport News school system and ODU with subpoenas and search warrants.
"We will ask our members, their friends and families, and all citizens who respect the strong and efficient enforcement of our laws to cast their ballots in the upcoming election in your favor,'' William B. Gordon, Newport News Chapter President of PBA wrote in a letter to Hamilton.
