Please vote to return to collections (Voting Results will appear on Right Sidebar).
U.S. Congressman
    (October 17, 1946- )
    Born in Richmond, Virginia
    Member of the Virginia State Senate (1973-1997)
    Representative from Virginia (1997-January 2009)
    He started as an Independent, switched parties to become a Democrat, returned to being an Independent, and finally joined the Republicans.
    He supported the tobacco industry, expressing the fear that his elderly mother would be 'denied the one last pleasure' of a cigarette on her hospital deathbed.
    Executives from defense contractor MZM pled guilty to making illegal contributions to his re-election campaign (2006).
    After newly-elected Rep. Keith Ellison expressed his intent to be sworn in on the Koran, Goode sent constituents a letter warning, 'If American citizens don't wake up and adopt the Virgil Goode position on immigration, there will likely be many more Muslims elected to office and demanding the use of the Koran.' (2006)
    He refused to reply at a press conference when asked what qualities of Muslims made him want to restrict their immigration.
    A former State Senate colleague said, 'Regardless of his party, I am sure his views are representative of those of his district.'
    He called himself 'As independent as the people he serves.'
    He donated the $88,000 his campaign received from MZM to local charities.
    There was no evidence he did anything illegal on behalf of MZM.
    He told Fox News, 'If the voters of a district want persons that are going to swear by the Koran, that's the choice of the voters in that district.'
