“It’s time to clean house in Democrat-run Richmond”
FALLS CHURCH, VA – Conservative Republican business leader and candidate for Virginia governor Glenn Youngkin today called for a federal investigation into the Virginia Parole Board’s alleged misconduct and corruption under Governors Terry McAuliffe and Ralph Northam.
“The McAuliffe-Northam parole board scandal is rotten to the core,” said Youngkin. “The politicians are all pointing their fingers and refusing to take responsibility. We need a federal investigation to get the facts and hold people accountable. It's time to clean house in Democrat-run Richmond.”
Recent news reports have revealed troubling indications of malfeasance and criminal behavior. Those involved include members of the Parole Board, attorney general’s office, governor’s office, Office of the State Inspector General, and two Virginia district court judges.
In August 2020, it was reported that the state inspector general had determined that the chair of the Virginia Parole Board broke the law to grant parole to Vincent Martin, a convicted cop killer who had been serving a life sentence in prison.
