Hearing @mikemullin4VA will be appointed chair of Courts of Justice Committee.

Virginians interested in criminal justice reform should contact Speaker @EFillerCorn and let her know they oppose this appointment.

A couple of things about Mullin /1
-he opposed raising the felony threshold to more than $1,000 even though Virginia has one of the lowest thresholds in the country
-as part of his opposition, he claimed gangs were committing organized burglaries under the threshold (imagine a band of criminals w a calculator & /2
Knowledge of the felony threshold an a calculator
-he attempted to introduce more mandatory minimums as late as last session
-he wanted to create new felonies
-he attempted to override the Governor’s veto of these regressive bills
-he has a terrible record on cannabis /3
Three different NAACP chapters, @JusticeFwdVa, @thcjusticenow, @RISEforYouth, and a host of other activists and orgs wrote a letter calling for a progressive chair. This appointment ain’t it /4
Please contact @EFillerCorn to let her know that we want a progressive chair.
