Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe is appointing a long-time GOP operative Boyd Marcus to the Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Board.
Republicans panned the move shortly after it was announced Wednesday as a political payback for a GOP defector.

Who says GOPers can’t be bought off?
Now you know why we need the Tea Party to takeover the GOP and do a house-cleaning.
Did George Orwell once say that “Rats come in all types”?
Or did I just make that up?
Mark Levin was hinting that the Democrats have “something” on Boehner because he has caved into them every time, including on the budget vote.
I hope someone looks in Boehner’s closet and if they find what I think is there, they should ask a state Attorney General to bring charges against the Democrat Party. (Can’t trust US DOJ to prosecute a rat).
You fill in the blanks.
Aman who can reach across the aisle.
Just like Mr. Obama; I hope Virginia decays for the next four years (but not individual Virginians like our VA friends on this board); then they throw the whole lot of Dems in VA out on their ^sses!
It’ll be interesting see what Bill Bolling gets...
Re “a man who can reach across the aisle”.
I’m interested in what he is grabbing.
A dropped line.
I hope that the Democrat Party is charged with blackmail, extortion, being a criminal enterprise, all three.
The stench of criminality hangs thick over DC and the DOJ is protecting it.
There are newly involved Virginia conservatives who are going into action right as I speak.
With my old acquaintance turned anti-semite Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA) retiring, that is an indication that the Dems are in panic mode.
Let’s enhance that “panic” by running strong candidates with principles, not with hands out.
Back our conservative Iraq/Afghan veterans who are now joining our political side. They know “reality” and how to kick the enemy’s ass, be it foreign or domestic.
“Now is the time for all good men and women to come to the aid of their country”.
Why I took a layoff versus to being forced to move there !
A Tale of Two Turncoats: WashPost Hyped GOP Strategist’s Support for Terry McAuliffe, Downplayed Dem’s for Cuccinelli
By Ken Shepherd | September 10, 2013
As the Virginia governor’s race heats up in the Washington Post’s backyard, the liberal broadsheet is doing its best to skew coverage in a favorable manner for liberal Democrat Terry McAuliffe, a former DNC chief and longtime friend of the Clintons.
An excellent contrast that illustrate’s the paper’s bias is how it has handled the back-to-back defections of Republican strategist Boyd Marcus and Democratic activist David “Mudcat” Saunders. The former is backing McAuliffe and the latter is endorsing Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli. The Post devoted stories to both men’s decisions to buck the party line, but staff writer Laura Vozzella had a considerably longer piece on the front page of Metro which painted Marcus’s move as a harbinger of a deeper GOP party split.

Today Pat Mullins, the chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia, issued a statement: Let me be the first to offer my congratulations to Boyd Marcus on his appointment to the Virginia ABC Board. Its nice to know the exchange rate for 30 pieces of silver these days is about $122,000 per year plus benefits.
