But the pandemic’s effects have not affected everyone equally. Communities of color are seeing higher infection and death rates than the Commonwealth as a whole, and Black and Latino workers are bearing the brunt of the economic damage. As the president’s actions continue to exacerbate the worst public health crisis in a century, Virginians of color are shouldering the burden.  In Richmond, [DATE REMOVED] new COVID cases as of mid-[DATE REMOVED] were a Black or Latino Virginian. In Northern Virginia, Latinos accounted for 60% of the region’s new cases in [DATE REMOVED], though they represent just 18% of the region’s population. These trends are consistent with national data that shows Black and Latino Americans suffering disproportionately from higher infection and mortality rates from the pandemic. According to data from the Virginia Department of Health, [DATE REMOVED] of the 10 localities with the highest COVID death rate have a larger minority population than the Commonwealth as a whole.  The economic impacts of Trump’s recession have hurt workers and business owners of color in Virginia particularly hard. According to the Roanoke Times, “jobless claims by Black workers have exceeded those by white workers since late [DATE REMOVED], even though Black people make up only about a fifth of the state’s workforce.” Research shows that Black and Latino workers are much less likely to be able to work from home than white workers nationwide, placing them at greater risk of infection. And sectors that have been the most affected by COVID like retail and hospitality have higher percentages of Black and Latino workers than the economy as a whole.  For small business owners of color, Trump’s mismanagement of the PPP program has shut them out of much-needed economic aid. Nationwide, 110,000 small businesses have closed, with Black and Latino business owners suffering disproportionately. This is particularly difficult for Virginia, which has one of the highest percentages in the country of minority-owned businesses, and whose economy will feel the loss more than most states  “Donald Trump’s failed leadership has caused the worst public health and economic crises that Americans have faced in generations, and communities of color in Virginia are bearing the brunt of the damage. Black and Latino Virginians are more likely to lose a loved one, lose their job, or close their small business due to COVID, yet all President Trump has to say is, ‘it is what it is,’” said DPVA Communications Director Grant Fox.   ## SHARE DPVA CHAIR PRAISES GENERAL ASSEMBLY DEMOCRATS VOTING TO ADVANCE BUDGET MEASURES TO EXPAND VOTING ACCESS NEXT POST Keep Virginia Blue JOIN THE PARTY JOIN US GET INVOLVED VOTE 2021 DONATE NOW Home Virginia Voting Your Party Events BCG 2021 Store Contact Us DEMOCRATIC PARTY OF VIRGINIA [DATE REMOVED] Main Street Suite 2050 Richmond, VA 23219 Telephone: [DATE REMOVED]-1966 Privacy Policy | Terms of Service Paid for by the Democratic Party of Virginia, www.vademocrats.org, not authorized by any candidate or candidate's committee.

Major Conflicts of Interest and a Potential Felony: Bob Good's Financial Disclosure Controversy Keeps Getting Worse - Democratic Party of VirginiaVirginia Voting VIRGINIA VOTING HOW TO VOTE ABSENTEE Your Party OUR DEMOCRATS CHAIRWOMAN SUSAN SWECKER STATE STEERING COMMITTEE PARTY ORGANIZATIONS AND NETWORKS LOCALITIES JOBS INTERNSHIPS MEET THE DPVA STAFF NEWS SENATE DEMOCRATS HOUSE DEMOCRATS Events BLUE COMMONWEALTH GALA UPCOMING EVENTS BCG 2021 Store GET INVOLVED VOTE 2021 DONATE NOW Virginia Voting VIRGINIA VOTING HOW TO VOTE ABSENTEE Your Party OUR DEMOCRATS CHAIRWOMAN SUSAN SWECKER STATE STEERING COMMITTEE PARTY ORGANIZATIONS AND NETWORKS LOCALITIES JOBS INTERNSHIPS MEET THE DPVA STAFF NEWS SENATE DEMOCRATS HOUSE DEMOCRATS Events BLUE COMMONWEALTH GALA UPCOMING EVENTS BCG 2021 Store OCTOBER 12, 2020 NEWS MAJOR CONFLICTS OF INTEREST AND A POTENTIAL FELONY: BOB GOOD’S FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE CONTROVERSY KEEPS GETTING WORSE BY DEMOCRATIC PARTY OF VIRGINIA SHARE When Republican Congressional candidate Bob Good recently filed a financial disclosure form that listed no assets, he immediately aroused suspicion. As it turns out, that disclosure was false, and new reporting shows the updated disclosure form Good filed [DATE REMOVED] is much worse for him.  Good's updated form shows multiple conflicts of interest from his time on the Campbell County Board of Supervisors. Good voted to award major contracts to two companies he held stock in - including Abbott Laboratories, a major opioids manufacturer - without disclosing he had a financial interest in those companies at the time. And to make things even worse, Good's failure to disclose those conflicts of interest could be a felony under Virginia law.  "It's no wonder why Bob Good wanted to mislead people by failing to disclose the assets he owned. We've seen Washington politicians use insider information to keep their portfolios secure from the recent economic downturn and use their positions to personally profit. Bob Good is making it perfectly clear he'll make the same corrupt back-room deals if given the chance," said DPVA Communications Director Grant Fox  See below for more coverage:  "After previously disclosing owning zero financial assets, Virginia congressional candidate Bob Good filed an amended financial disclosure [DATE REMOVED] showing he holds dozens of stocks, including in two companies that had business before the Campbell County Board of Supervisors when Good served on the panel." [Washington Post, 10/9/20]  "A recent review of the Fifth District Republican congressional candidate’s financial disclosures reveal that during his four-year tenure on the Campbell County Board of Supervisors, Bob Good failed to disclose his assets and liabilities in apparent violation of Virginia ethics laws." [Rappahannock News, 10/10/20]  "None of those assets or debts appeared on a [DATE REMOVED] Statement of Economic Interest Good submitted to Virginia’s ethics board while serving on the Campbell County Board of Supervisors, or in any of his annual state filings since 2015. Virginia law requires board of supervisors members to list any securities, debts, business interests, and real estate holdings (aside from a primary residence) valued at more than $5,000. They must also include assets owned by their immediate family. A 'knowing violation' of the law can result in misdemeanor charges of up to [DATE REMOVED] in jail and/or a fine of $2,500, though several legal experts said that Good was unlikely to face any charges." [VPM, 10/8/20]  "Good had initially filed a financial disclosure report showing no unearned income or assets, and then filed an amended report earlier [DATE REMOVED] with 11 pages of assets worth between $213,000 and $1.65 million. Virginia law requires candidates for elected office to disclose their personal economic interests." [CBS19, 10/10/20, full clip available here] Washington Post: A Va. congressional candidate reported no assets. His amended disclosure shows he holds dozens of stocks. By Meagan Flynn  [DATE REMOVED]  After previously disclosing owning zero financial assets, Virginia congressional candidate Bob Good filed an amended financial disclosure [DATE REMOVED] showing he holds dozens of stocks, including in two companies that had business before the Campbell County Board of Supervisors when Good served on the panel. Good (R), who is running against Democrat Cameron Webb for the open 5th District seat, filed amended disclosures dating to 2018 after facing questions [DATE REMOVED] from news outlets in his district, such as the Rappahannock News, about why he had reported no assets, unusual for a longtime businessman. He now reports between $213,000 and $1.65 million in assets and unearned income. Among the dozens of stocks now disclosed in Good’s individual retirement account are shares in Abbott Laboratories, a pharmaceutical company, and McKesson, a drug distributor and health-care IT company. The companies benefited from contracts with Campbell County in 2016. Each stock is worth between $1,001 to $15,000, according to the disclosure. In 2016, Good voted to give Abbott Nutrition, a subsidiary of Abbott Laboratories, a $567,000 corporate subsidy to help fund its expansion and create jobs at a facility in Altavista, Va. He also voted to give McKesson a contract overseeing the county’s ambulance billing and collection services, allowing the company to retain 4.25 percent of all that it collected. In the same year, Good and the board voted to hike ambulance fees by about 26 percent and to allow garnishing wages from Campbell County residents who did not pay for their ambulance rides. Good did not disclose owning any securities, including stocks, during his tenure on the board, which lasted [DATE REMOVED]. He reported owning more than $300,000 in mutual funds while running for the board seat in 2015. [...] Virginia law requires local and state lawmakers to disclose their personal economic interests in forms filed with the Virginia Conflict of Interest and Ethics Advisory Council. G. Stewart Petoe, executive director of the council, declined to discuss whether any violations occurred, saying he cannot answer questions from news organizations. Norman Ornstein, a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute who helped found the House Office of Congressional Ethics, said it’s a “giant flare” if a candidate reports zero financial assets, then files an amended form showing dozens of assets. He said it’s unlikely Good’s votes on items benefiting Abbott and McKesson would have any large impact on his finances if he owned stocks at the time. But Ornstein said the right thing for lawmakers to do is to recuse themselves, regardless of who is managing the investments. At the very least, Ornstein said, modest holdings should still be disclosed. “I could cut a little slack in this sense. These are huge companies where contracts in the county are not likely to have a big material impact on the stock value or price,” Ornstein said. “But having said that, if you are a supervisor on a county board and you own stocks in companies where even if it’s a marginal impact on your holdings, the smart thing to do — the most ethical thing to do — would be to recuse yourself.” In a statement, Webb’s campaign manager, Ben Young, said Good should not have waited so long to correct his financial disclosures. “The voters deserve accountability and transparency from their representatives,” Young said. “It is unfortunate that Mr. Good chose to conceal this important information in the first place until after votes had already been cast.” Good worked for CitiFinancial for [DATE REMOVED] joining Liberty University as an athletics fundraising official. He and Webb, who is a doctor and a lawyer, are in an unexpectedly tight race in Virginia’s usually red 5th District. ### SHARE STATEMENT FROM DMV DEMOCRATIC PARTIES ON PRESIDENT TRUMP’S RECKLESS BEHAVIOR NEXT POST Keep Virginia Blue JOIN THE PARTY JOIN US GET INVOLVED VOTE 2021 DONATE NOW Home Virginia Voting Your Party Events BCG 2021 Store Contact Us DEMOCRATIC PARTY OF VIRGINIA [DATE REMOVED] Main Street Suite 2050 Richmond, VA 23219 Telephone: [DATE REMOVED]-1966 Privacy Policy | Terms of Service Paid for by the Democratic Party of Virginia, www.vademocrats.org, not authorized by any candidate or candidate's committee.
