by Democratic Party of Virginia

RICHMOND - The Democratic Party of Virginia (DPVA), the Richmond City Democratic Committee (RCDC), and Levar Stoney's campaign will take the following legal actions against Joe Morrissey's campaign for distributing an advertisement that fails to inform voters who paid for the advertisement and falsely implies that the Morrissey campaign has been endorsed by the Richmond City Democratic Committee:

  • File a complaint with the Virginia State Board of Elections
  • Send a cease and desist letter directly to Joe Morrissey’s campaign

"The Morrissey campaign is engaged in a flagrant and intentionally misleading violation of campaign regulations. Morrissey does not have the endorsement of the Democratic Party of Virginia or the Richmond City Democratic Committee, and we are requesting that he cease these activities immediately." Rebecca Slutzky, Executive Directory of the Democratic Party of Virginia
