A prominent local Republican is calling for Governor Bob McDonnell to resign.

Shaun Kenney is the Chairman of the Fluvanna County Board of Supervisors, and the former spokesman for the Republican Party of Virginia. He says the ongoing gift scandal shows that the governor is unfit to stay on the job.

“When you see these sort of things and you see $50,000 trips to New York City, when you see $70,000 loans, $6,500 Rolexes, I think that crosses the ethical plane,” Kenney said.

“Many Americans have given up on our political system, writing off our elected leaders as crooks.. we believe politicians must be held accountable for their actions. Day in and day out, we work to ensure government officials –regardless of party affiliation– act with honesty and integrity and merit the public trust.”
