Ousted registrar in Botetourt files lawsuit against electoral board
The rift between Botetourt County’s voter registrar and its electoral board was purely political, former Registrar Phyllis Booze asserted in a lawsuit filed Friday claiming she was let go for partisan reasons.

The rift between Botetourt County’s voter registrar and its electoral board was purely political, former Registrar Phyllis Booze asserted in a lawsuit filed Friday claiming she was let go for partisan reasons.

Because she is a Republican, Booze claimed, the two Democrats on the three-member board voted not to reappoint her in June to another four-year term.

In her lawsuit, filed in Roanoke’s federal court against electoral board members William “Buck” Heartwell and Paul Fitzgerald, Booze seeks lost wages, compensation for emotional suffering and her job back.

While much has been made of the point that Booze’s two detractors on the board are Democrats, the lawsuit is believed to be the first public statement of how her political affiliation factored into their long-running tense relationship.

Drug-test proposal for public aid fails in House panel vote #vapol #vaga2016
By Bill Sizemore The Virginian-Pilot

A legislative proposal to drug-test recipients of public assistance was derailed Tuesday on a bipartisan vote in a Republican-controlled House of Delegates subcommittee.

Two Republicans, Dels. Peter Farrell of Henrico County and Chris Peace of Hanover County, joined minority Democrats in opposing the measure, which failed to advance on a 6-5 vote.

The legislation, HB468 and HB86, introduced by Republican Dels. Christopher Head of Botetourt County and Rick Morris of Isle of Wight County, would have established a pilot program to test recipients of assistance in the Virginia Initiative for Employment not Welfare program for illegal drugs.

Head said the intent of the legislation was to discourage participants from spending their benefits on drugs instead of buying groceries for their families. “You can’t continue to reward and ultimately fund bad behavior,” he told the subcommittee.
