Reaction to Pantele Appointment

Various outlets have reported on Governor Kaine’s appointment of Bill Pantele–erstwhile City Council representative of the Fan–to the ABC Commission. Now some are suggesting cronyism at work in these political machinations.

The Richmond City Reporter and Telegraph suggests:

In retrospect, Mr. Pantele’s quick appointment is a little surprising considering how long the Council recently took to appoint Mrs. Betty Squire to replace Delores McQuinn in the 7th District.
