State Senator Creigh Deeds is one lawmaker who frequently updates his Facebook and Twitter accounts with what music he’s listening to. Well wishers are now using music to send him messages of love and support.
While campaigning for Governor in 2009, Creigh Deeds tweeted he was listening to the likes of Merle Haggard, U2, and Talking Heads. But now, while recovering at UVA Medical Center from stab wounds in an assault at his home, he can see what his friends and followers are listening to in his honor. It all started with Candace Bryan Abbey, a friend of the Deeds’ family.
It would be true justice for a state appeals court to declare Johnathon Montgomery innocent of the crimes of which he was convicted. That’s the argument of Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, who today appeared before the Virginia Court of Appeals to urge approval of a Writ of Actual Innocence for Montgomery. The panel weighed questions of justice versus executive and judicial separation of powers.
