Vice Squad

Back to Bottom-feeders or Ahead to Pre-natal care

In Virginia, the country’s wildest senate race lets you pick whichever candidate represents your favorite deadly sin:

Ollie North boasts of being the lone non-lawyer, though without slick attorneys, he’d still be a convicted felon (see “Oliver Twisted”, May/June 1994).
Chuck Robb pleads that he never really “loved” the young women who’ve given him discreet lip service during his marriage.
Hellbent to unseat Robb, former governor Doug Wilder may split the Demo vote by running as an independent.
Perennial GOP candidate Marshall Coleman, now also running as an indie, flip-flops his abortion position every time he loses.
