That Worked Out Well

The crooked bargain, in which Virginia State Sen. David Puckett (D) resigned in order to block Medicaid expansion allegedly in return for a state job and a judgeship for his daughter, seems to have fallen through. Medicaid’s toast. But everyone seems to be running for the hills. Puckett now says he doesn’t want the job. And the job doesn’t seem to want him either.

The level of apparent corruption here is as comic as it tragic for the Virginians who are now robbed of health care coverage.
