Yesterday, as the Democrats "Seven Change" tour was getting started in the back of a Rocky Mount restaurant, Delegate Brian Moran heard that Majority Leader Morgan Griffith was eating in the front. Brian went out front to say hello, and saw Morgan was eating with former 5th District Chair Tucker Watkins. This restaurant is a little rednecky and serves its drinks in plastic cups. No one is sure what exactly happened next, but about 10 large cups full of iced tea landed on the table and splattered all over Tucker and Morgan! Did Moran intentionally soak the Majority Leader for coming to his event?
Morgan, having been soaked from head to toe, then followed Brian to two more events in Danville, or about 4 hours of stalking for the Majority Leader. While Morgan got a quote in all the newspaper accounts of the tour- isn't it a little beneath the Majority Leader to be stalking the Minority leadership team? And yes, he still smelled like tea all day.
