For when Delegate Waddell presented her bill before the House Cities, Counties and Towns committee, VB’s Delegate Terrie Suit quickly shot it down with nary an opportunity for Delegate Waddell to even say “boo” about her own bill. The whole disgraceful scene where Delegate Suit not only moves to immediately table the bill, but turns around to vocally object to even recording the vote, is captured on video here. […]
