Wagner and Deeds Call on Delegate Hamilton to Resign

The line is forming demanding Delegate Phil Hamilton resign along with an editorial today in The Roanoke Times:

RICHMOND – Today, Democratic Nominee for Lieutenant Governor Jody Wagner released the following statement regarding Delegate Phillip Hamilton:

“Delegate Hamilton abused his position as a public servant for personal gain. His apologies and denials fall short. Virginians deserve elected officials who maintain the highest standards of integrity and honesty, and anyone who fails to meet those should resign. I believe Delegate Hamilton should step down immediately, as he can no longer effectively serve the 93rd District.

CHARLOTTESVILLE – Sen. Creigh Deeds, the Democratic nominee for governor, released the following statement on Monday regarding the conduct of Del. Phil Hamilton (R-Newport News).

“For the past seven years, Virginians from all walks of life have worked hard to earn our ranking as the best managed state in the nation.  Phil Hamilton’s actions and subsequent denials not only undermine that effort, but more importantly, betray the public trust.  His conduct deserves far more than simple ‘disappointment.’  It deserves our outrage.  We cannot turn the other cheek to this type of behavior.  He should resign from the House of Delegates immediately.”
