Alton Foley has some fascinating information to add to the caption contest debate regarding one of the politicians who has called for Will Vehrs to resign or be fired for the jokes Will wrote. It seems the politician, one Ward Armstrong, is something of a jokester himself. Alton doesn't provide a reference for the passage he cites or a link so I googled it and found one dated Friday, August 12, 2005 over at Sic Semper Tyrannis:
David Young brings in Northern Virginia powerNot Larry Sabato apparently had heard the same story.
In the 10th District, Republican David Young is firing the heavy artillery early in his race against Ward Armstrong.
On Thursday, Young, a retired agriculture teacher and current member of the Patrick County Board of Supervisors, launched his first major volley against Armstrong. He appeared in Bassett with state Sen. Jeannemarie Devolites Davis, R-Fairfax County, who cited an incident when she was a state delegate in 1998.
On the House floor, Armstrong used his imitation of President Clinton to joke about that night's legislative basketball game, saying Devolites Davis would be his team's center and that she was coming over to his place to review the playbook. Later, at a post-game party, Armstrong again spoke about her, saying, "She's no Monica Lewinsky, but she can be taught," Devolites Davis recalled Thursday.
Armstrong later apologized. (link)
Now I'm confused. What is it again in this story about the caption contest that's a firing offense?
I'm googling "Delegate Ward Armstrong tenders resignation" but so far I can't find any ...
