Loup says he didn't put this one in. When you click through to full text, it says "Patron-Lewis"...the plot thickens.

I suspect that was nothing more than a technical glitch, Amy. This has happened once or twice before, during last year's session. My theory is that very temporary problems in the General Assembly's data -- lasting just a few seconds, so nobody would ever notice them -- sometimes coincide with the very second each hour in which Richmond Sunlight gathers its data from the General Assembly's site. The result is that inaccurate data is preserved here for sixty minutes.
