I enjoyed meeting you at the Smart Meter hearing Monday. Thank you for dedication to Liberty and excellent summary of how you tried to impact the civil sphere of government. Below, is what I posted to Facebook and Linked In from your article link. I did Tweet, the first two questions.

"What is Norment's role with Dominion Power, stockholder? conflict of interest? Just prior to the hearing, Dominion Corporatist met with Sens. Edward, Alexander, and Saslaw left end of the Senator seats in what appeared to be the final defeat of the Smart Meter Bill. As they turned to exit the room, the totally white haired man in a long black coat gave a "thumbs up" with a smile on his face! The outcome , before the hearing, was obvious and another example of how special interest enjoys playing on the government playground. Is it honorable for a stockholder in a corporation to vote on legislation benefiting personal interest? Isn't that why Phil Hamilton, Ex Delegate NN, is in Prison? Where are the investigators?"
