What’s half a term between friends?

We hear all about the time of politicians who, in their quest for power, be it for their issues or simply for its own sake, who move to open districts or seek a new office when they haven’t even finished a full term in their current office, breaking an implicit promise they made to the people to serve them. However, in Loudoun County, we have the case of Stevens Miller, who is just arrogant enough to do both at the same time. From Crystal Clear Conservative

Loudoun Supervisor Stevens Miller recently moved into Delegate Tom Rust’s district. It appears that he is renting out a townhouse in Sterling and keeping his house in the Broadlands. Sounds like someone wants to fire things up and challenge.

Too bad, Miller is a carpetbagger and hasn’t even finished out his term on the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors. Is this really the type of person you want representing you in the Virginia General Assembly? No, didn’t think so!

I try not to question the motivations of others in politics. If they’re like me, they hopefully got involved in politics for very deeply seated reasons related to their background or beliefs. However, when you see a politician going so far out of their way to take advantage of a situation, well, it’s hard not to see this as a clear case of hubris.
