STATE LAWMAKER WHO CALLED COREY STEWART A CHARLATAN NOW DEFENDS HIM AGAINST RACISM ALLEGATIONS

By PATRICK WILSON, Richmond Times-Dispatch (Access to this article limited to subscribers)

State Del. Glenn Davis, R-Virginia Beach, who earlier this year called Republican Corey Stewart a “fake politician” and “charlatan” on the state House floor, this week publicly defended Stewart against charges of racism. “#Racism is a very serious issue that all of us in this country should denounce,” Davis tweeted on Wednesday. “While many people may not agree with @CoreyStewartVA, he is not a racist, and no one is a racist just because they support him. Statements otherwise just trivialize the real harms of racism.”

BUSINESS LAW-WRITERS NAVIGATE CONFLICTING INVESTMENTS, INTERESTS

By DAVE RESS, Daily Press (Metered Paywall - 5 articles a month)

By LAURA VOZZELLA AND GREGORY S. SCHNEIDER , Washington Post (Metered Paywall - 3 articles a month)
