Rep. Scott Taylor (R-VA)” is hunkered down in the midst of a strange campaign scandal involving forged signatures on petitions to get a competing candidate into the race,” the Washington Post reports.
“Taylor has been subpoenaed to a court hearing Wednesday in Richmond to determine his role and whether that third candidate is improperly on the ballot, while a special prosecutor separately investigates possible campaign law violations.”
“The controversy has boosted his Democratic opponent, Elaine Luria, in a race with national implications. The 2nd District… went for Trump in 2016 but backed Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam last year. It’s a race targeted by Democrats as a possible flip in their quest to regain control of the House of Representatives.”Save to Favorites
