Sen. Louise Lucas wanted $38 million in state and federal bonds. Portsmouth City Council said no. So she’s suing Portsmouth for nearly 98 million dollars!!
Her hotel/conference center was only projected to cost 67 million. Why is she suing for 98 million?
RACE, says the lawsuit. The state senator now claims to be a victim of racial discrimination.
Uh, Louise. You don’t have a right to taxpayer support. If you think you do, you have no business serving in the state Senate. A Senator suing a city because she didn’t get bond approval? That’s about as close to an abuse of power as I’ve seen in Virginia!
