The Virginia governor's race took a turn for the nasty at a fundraiser for Republican candidate Bob McDonnell, hosted by billionaire and BET co-founder Sheila Johnson.
Johnson, who also owns the Washington Mystics, mocked the occasional stuttering of McDonnell's Democratic opponent Creigh Deeds. "We need someone who can really communicate, Bob McDonnell can communicate, the other people I talked to especially his oppo-po-p-p-onent d-d-d-did this all through my interview with him."
A McDonnell campaign spokesperson said Johnson was criticizing Deeds for lack of vision. The Deeds campaign called the comments a cheap shot.
