A local lawmaker has cleared a major hurdle in Richmond. The State Senate Privileges and Elections Committee has endorsed Rob Bell’s plan to add sex crime convictions to the list of offenses that can make an elected official lose his job. Bell’s legislation lets a Virginia judge remove someone from office after 10% of the voters agree to that action. It would NOT happen unless the accused person was convicted of sexual battery, indecent exposure or other sex crimes. Bell (pictured) crafted his legislation following last year’s incident involving Scottsville District supervisor Chris Dumler. Dumler gave up his suit last June.
