so like pretty much everyone else I looked up the Virginia governorship's line of succession

if the Governor is out
and the Lt Governor is out
and the Attorney General is out
the fourth in the line of succession is the Speaker of the House of Delegates

William J. Howell (R)
how could it get crazier than three scandals potentially leading to a governor's mansion flip

I'll tell you

If there are FOUR scandals and Howell's out, the governor is picked by the VA House of Delegates

which is Republican-controlled 51 to 48
and if anybody in the nearly-balanced *VA House of Delegates* has a lurking scandal...

by the time this is all done control of Virginia could be decided by, I dunno, some old dude named Melvin
this might actually be the highest level of madness

both political parties having swapped places, standing around in the wreckage of Richmond going "what... what the hell just happened here"
Whoops, this is correct: Cox (also R) replaced Howell as speaker in January
