Scandal rocks the gubernatorial race in Virginia as Pengate now dominates the news. It all unfolded earlier this week when Frank Wagner’s campaign shared a picture of Wagner “at work.” But the cap was still on the pen! This was properly pointed out (photo below).
Scrambling to save their credibility the Wagner campaign re-created the same photo, because it was that great of a shot, and posted the new photo like nothing happened (updated below).
But it’s too late. Pengate has exposed that Sen. Wagner doesn’t really work when he is in his office at the General Assembly.
It’s all in good fun. What really happened was the Wagner campaign made a careless error and one of his opponents was quick to point it out, which was done in a lighthearted way. Nominating contests keep us honest and make things much more meaningful when calling out Democrats for their mistakes. So for now, Pengate will lead the nightly newscasts and we’re ok with that.
