Vir­ginia GOP ques­tions pick

Truro Daily News - - CLASSIFIEDS/WORLD -

CHAR­LOTTESVILLE, Va. — Vir­ginia Repub­li­cans say a for­mer U.S. at­tor­ney should be dis­qual­i­fied from lead­ing an in­de­pen­dent re­view in Char­lottesville be­cause of past po­lit­i­cal do­na­tions he made to Demo­cratic can­di­dates.

The city hired Tim Hea­phy, for­mer U.S. At­tor­ney for the West­ern District of Vir­ginia, to eval­u­ate how it pre­pared for and re­sponded to a May torch-light rally, a KKK event in July and the Aug. 12 “Unite the Right” rally. The Repub­li­can Party of Vir­ginia said in a state­ment that Hea­phy has “sev­eral con­flicts of in­ter­est,” in­clud­ing a US$200 do­na­tion he made to Char­lottesville Mayor Mike Signer’s cam­paign in 2015.
