Candidate for Lt. Governor state Senator Bryce Reeves has accused his opponent state Senator Jill Vogel of setting up a fake email account to send messages to Reeves’ supporters accusing him of having an affair. The emails came from Jill Vogel’s husband’s cell phone and their home IP address. Reeves has strenuously denied the accusations contained in the emails.
When Senator Vogel refused to turn over her electronics to an independent, third party, investigator, Senator Reeves filed a defamation lawsuit in Stafford County with subpoenas issued for Senator Vogel and her husband. The Vogels have filed a motion to quash the subpoenas. That hearing will be held June 9th, just days before the primary.
Also running for Lt. Governor is Delegate Glenn Davis who represents the 84th district in the House of Delegates.
