Discussion: Virginia Dem Responds To Teen Sex Charges With F-Bomb On Live TV (VIDEO)

Protip: Avoid dropping the F-bomb on live television when defending yourself against charges of sex with a minor.


Well, he’s a goner. Chalk this one up to a loss. Can’t VA Dems field a better candidate for this district? Come on now…


A Virginia delegate dropped the f-bomb on live television Tuesday…

{sigh} Well, considering this is Joe Morrissey, that doesn’t surprise me one bit. This is, after all, a guy who as a prosecutor got into a fistfight with another lawyer right in the courthouse.

Morrissey has done some really boneheaded things in his career, but I was still completely shocked when I heard about his indictment on sex charges on last night’s news. I didn’t think even Morrissey was stupid enough to entangle himself like that, but maybe he’s more like Anthony Weiner than I realized.

Extended coverage in the Washington Post.


I guess “hackers” are the new “drug-crazed hippies” or “male negros” who seem to always commit the crimes that other folks are accused of.


What the hell is wrong with Virginia Democrats? First the idiot letting his resignation be bought off, now this?


You sure this guy isn’t a Republican?


For the record, the age of consent in Virginia is 17.

I wish I knew the answer to that. Not so long ago, elected officials in Virginia’s state government were a pretty dignified and respected group. But it is increasingly becoming a clown show there, the same way it is in so many other places.


I hate idiots. It doesn’t matter what party they belong to.

Perhaps, but if you’re a politician, the Age of Commonsense should rule…and it’s a lot higher than 17.


I’m not sure where you saw that, but for the most part, the age of consent in Virginia is 18. There is a “close in age” exception to that “which allows teenagers aged 15, 16 and 17 to engage in sexual acts, but only with a partner younger than 18.”



I suspect Morrissey was thinking like a 15 year old, at least.

Might even believe he’s a 15 year old while he’s going to work on his secretary too.

And that would probably be a step up in maturity for him.


Heaven knows he’s miserable now.


It’s OK, his misery is only going to get worse once he gets introduced to the boys in the joint.

Yes, with the added bonus that hackers can be both drug crazed hippies AND male negros, so it really ties it up nicely.

This guy sure has a problem articulating himself. For somebody trying to tell his story in front of some cameras, he is sure stumbling for words. “Look, I didn’t do it, she’s lying, she hacked my phone and other phones, as well.” How hard is that to say? And he is a lawyer? Yikes.

Did the receptionist wear one of those Admit it. You’d go to jail for this! t-shirts we often see advertised on TPM?
