In response to the verdict, Robert Dempsey, Executive Director of the Democratic Party of Virginia, released the following statement:

“We need to hold our elected leaders to the highest possible ethical standards in order for the people of Virginia to trust in the administration of our Commonwealth’s government. We are truly saddened by this outcome, but it is our sincere hope we can put this episode behind us and move the Old Dominion State forward.”
