In hopes of securing four more years representing Loudoun County's 360,000 residents, Chairman Scott York (R) and Sheriff Mike Chapman (R) have enlisted the services of a man who has spent more than 60 months in prison.

Fervid statements on immigration from Phyllis Randall, the Democrat running in this year's Loudoun Board of Supervisors chairman's race, earned scrutiny from leading Virginia Senate Democrats in late 2013, when Randall was exploring running for the General Assembly's upper chamber. Randall's remarks, which were made nearly nine years ago, include stating she is “radically anti-illegal immigration” and that she's “all for deportation whenever possible.”
