In Stafford County on Friday retired Judge Charles E. Poston of Norfolk denied Senator Bryce Reeve’s request to depose Senator Vogel, her husband, and others about email accusations that Reeves was having an affair. Reeves wanted to depose six people so he could ascertain who he would be bringing suit against. More on the story here and here. After the hearing Senator Reeves issued the following statement:
“I take it seriously when someone tries to attack and destroy my country, or my constituents, or my family. That’s why I became an Army Ranger, that’s why I became a police officer and that’s why I ran for public office.
“We have been in pursuit of the truth since September when these false allegations attempting to destroy my family first began to surface.
“There are a number of questions that remain unanswered: Why was Alex Vogel’s cell phone used to register this Gmail account? Why was Jill Vogel’s Internet network used to access the email account? And why is Jill Vogel refusing to answer these questions? The voters of Virginia deserve to know the answers and we’re calling on Jill Vogel to answer them truthfully, which she is unwilling to do.
“In order to get to the truth, we will be pursuing a lawsuit against the Vogels and others involved in this filthy enterprise.”
