RICHMOND – Governor McAuliffe today announced that, following a thorough legal review of the case, he will commute the death sentence of Ivan Teleguz to life imprisonment without parole. Teleguz’s request for a pardon will be denied. Teleguz was convicted in the murder-for-hire of Stephanie Yvonne Sipe in July 2001. He was scheduled to be executed on April 25.
Announcing his decision at the Virginia State Capitol today, Governor McAuliffe delivered the following statement (as prepared):
Good afternoon, and thank you for joining us. I am joined today by my Secretary of Public Safety, Brian Moran, and my Counsel, Carlos Hopkins, both of whom have devoted countles
President Clinton’s birthday is Friday, August 19. He will be 65 just a few weeks older then me.
I received an invitation to sign his birthday card “by email” today.
It read in part: “Celebrate his dedication to improving lives around the world through the Clinton Foundation. Send President Clinton a birthday message, and let him know of your commitment to help him build a better world.”
I must admit that he is a hunk for at least my womanly age. When he was in Roanoke campaigning for Terry McAuliffe in the primary for Virginia Governor I was pressing the flesh to get close for pictures – along with all the other women. A woman begged me to take a picture with him as she threw her arms around a startled President Bill Clinton. She paid me for it!
With his knowing smile and captivating piercing eyes women swooned and reached out for him. Lets face it ladies this man oozes sexuality from every pour. Why? Who knows but for sure he “eats it up.”
That day in Roanoke after the speeches were over I looked around. McAuliffe and Clinton were working the crowd. McAuliffe might as well have been invisible. Adoring females surrounded President Clinton who was affectionately “Bill” to us females that day. The men were pushed aside.
It became clear that many of the females in the crowd were there to see Bill who could have spoke gibberish for all they cared.
Bill is welcome back to Roanoke anytime and I know some ladies who would be happy to show him a “good time!”
