Charges of election law violations dropped against State Sen. Joe Morrissey

Three misdemeanor charges against State Senator Joe Morrissey have been dropped. Morrissey faced the charges for his actions at a Powhatan County polling place in November of 2019. He was accused of violating Virginia code related to polling locations by handing out doughnuts to poll workers and voters. Earlier this week, Morrissey and his attorney filed a motion to dismiss the case. Morrissey says he provided six affidavits from 2019 precinct poll workers who confirmed there was no wrongdoing and no laws were violated.
