Phil Burnette Snarking, Sniffing and Snorting

Phil Burnette, chairman of the Henry County Democratic Party has chimed in on the decision by incumbent Republican Virgil Goode from VA’s 5th District to file papers for a recount in this years election against Democrat challenger Tom Perriello. According to Phil, the recount has nothing to do with 3,200 votes “changing” since the morning after the election.
“Virgil (Goode) is just using public money for his own edification,” Burnette added, referring to the localities’ responsibility for paying for the recount. State law requires localities to cover the costs when the difference between the candidates is less than half a percent.
Funny, how Phil didn’t have such a low opinion of Virgil Goode when he donated cash to a previous campaign. Rep. Goode’s principles and beliefs haven’t changed over the years, only his political party affiliation. How about your principles and beliefs, Phil?
