The Virginia General Assembly blocked the judicial nomination of a prosecutor and Navy veteran who would have become the state's first openly gay judge after a heated argument in the House of Delegates spilled into the wee hours of Tuesday morning.
"I wouldn't agree to give them an extra 15 cents until they're at least required to report where the money's being spent. Just have a standardization as to how the money is being spent," Mr. Loupassi said.
Delegate G.M. "Manoli" Loupassi, a Richmond Republican who sponsored Mr. Thorne-Begland for the post, said that would not be an issue.
