Youngkin is about to discover that he's governor-elect and people will actually pay attention to him now. https://t.co/Aj2dCMg1Tz

As a devout Cynic, I hope this is true! HBS-educated multi-millionaire Glenn Youngkin isn’t used to being challenged — with any luck, the media mudlarks who didn’t care about his background while he was simply ‘Not That McAuliffe Guy’ will discover it’s fun to push Youngkin’s buttons for a change.
Youngkin’s running around, taking victory laps, announcing at the top of his lungs that Virginia will be “open for business“ — no more ‘burdensome’ pandemic-related restrictions once he’s in the governor’s chair!
(May Murphy the Trickster God have mercy on your souls, sane Virginians… )
But, still: trying to vote illegally *once* is an honest error, but trying it *twice* in an hour veers into ‘deliberate attempt at fraud’ territory. If Junior Youngkin is a wannabe James O’Keefe, the world and his daddy’s constituents should know sooner rather than later.
To voter fraud? I thought that was a huge issue to republicans

I agree there was no crime committed, and if this was anyone else's kid, it would not be news. But "honest mistake"? Come on.

we can’t blame the boy. but what values was he taught in that household? why wasn’t there a father figure who could teach him right from wrong? https://t.co/U0EgFsOX9S
