What’s the difference between long-serving Loudoun Board of Supervisors Chairman Scott York (R) and recent Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell (R)?
They both . . .
• provide special favors in return for large cash contributions
• take free trips and other goodies from people who want something in return
• think ethics rules don’t apply to them
The difference? As of January 22, 2014, only one has been indicted on federal corruption charges.
