JoMo: a history in headlines

There was a brief moment of panic on Twitter today when a screenshot of Joe Morrissey's campaign page showed an updated profile picture with a caption about running for mayor of Richmond. Just when we all were convinced this man seriously announced a #rvamayor2020 bid... I checked the edit history. JoMo is just REALLY bad at Facebook I guess. When he updated the profile picture, it left the old caption from 2016 which he updated shortly after to just say "Attorney Joe Morrisey." 

Screenshot from his campaign website showing the updated photo with caption announcement.

For that brief moment of time when we thought we were stuck in a warped version of Groundhogs Day where JoMo keeps running for office... someone asked the question of what it would take for people to forgive/accept Joe Morrissey and let him move on. Fair question. And since we are already here... I am going to finish my answer. 

My issue with JoMo isn't JUST what he did and that he denies it/won't apologize... it is that he does not stop. Last year, I compiled a list of all the times the RVA Mayor candidates had made headlines in the Richmond Times-Dispatch. I have included (and made current) the Joe Morrissey headlines below. When you go through this list, you will see that time and time again Joe is involved in a wide variety of questionable (this is the understatement of the year by the way) situations. While some are the same type of issues popping up... the only real common theme is that it never seems to end with him. He is always the center of some type of soap opera-esque saga. There is always another ethics scandal or violation or allegations of misconduct or whatever it is this week. SO. In my opinion, it isn't enough it just issue an apology. If Joe were to insist on continuing to run for public office, I would hope he could show the public that he accepts responsibility for his actions, understands why the things he did were wrong, and that he made corrective actions to change his behavior.

SIDENOTE: If you want some good listening... check out Don Harrison's interview with Joe Morrissey on WRIR's Open Source RVA.  SPOILER ALERT: Don asks Joe if he is a sex addict.
