The Supreme Court of Virginia on Thursday rejected a bid by Joe Morrissey, a former state delegate and now a candidate for state Senate, to reverse a three-judge panel’s decision revoking his law license last year.
Former Del. Joe Morrissey, who upset Sen. Rosalyn Dance, D-Petersburg, in the June 11 Democratic primary, was fined $600 by state election officials Monday.

Virginia’s Board of Elections fined Democratic Senate candidate Joe Morrissey $600 on Monday for failing to properly disclose two campaign videos he advertised on Facebook.

Richmond’s most infamous man about town — jailed in his late 50s for his relationship with a 17-year-old girl whom he later married — will have a seat in the Capitol’s august Senate chamber come January. And that has fellow Democrats worried.
A scandal-tarred pariah to Virginia’s Democratic Party only five years ago, Joe Morrissey on Tuesday took a giant step toward returning to the General Assembly despite fierce opposition from his party’s leaders.
“It’s somewhat sweet that three governors campaigned against me,” said Morrissey, 61
