Arlington Democratic Senator Wants Governor To Resign

A first-term Democratic member of the General Assembly from Northern Virginia believes Republican Bob McDonnell shouldn’t wait until January before packing his bags, and she wants him to leave the Governor’s Mansion now. Barbara Favola (D-Arlington County) has cited stories about McDonnell and his financial contributors that she’s read in the Washington Post. Favola is the second member of the State Senate (pictured) who’s called for McDonnell to go. The first was Chap Petersen of Faifax.
