Emails Detail Creation of Job for Virginia Lawmaker

Emails obtained by the Washington Post show that the creation of a job for ex-Virginia state Sen. Phillip Puckett (D) was in the works before he quit his seat and handed Republicans control of the evenly divided Senate in the middle of a standoff over the state budget.

"The e-mail messages indicated that the commission was creating the post especially for Puckett, who was asked to help come up with his own job description. The position was to come with state employee benefits, a cell phone and possibly a car, according to the e-mails. The salary was not specified."
