Jefferson Davis Statue

First off-the statue in Alexandria is NOT of Davis but an unarmed Confederate Soldier called 'Appomattox.' He is facing South with his head bowed. It was placed at the spot where units from Alexandria left to join the Confederate Army. Second-Mr. Morrissey-anyone with a brain can see that you are pandering to the black vote, You have a black wife and you call for the removal of a Confederate Statue. I suggest you worry more about staying out of jail.

Good to see candidates talking about the REAL issues facing people in the RVA. Since all other problems are solved, we can now address statues.
