19. Luckily I don't live in VA but in CT, we had a Stop the Stadium movement that succeeded

Same kind of thing but bigger---then Gov. Rowland (who went to jail for a year on a different offense) offered to build a new stadium costing hundreds of million$ for the rich, fat cat owner of the New Eng Patriots to bring them to Hartford. A citizens' movement stopped the guv dead in his tracks. Even a Repub friend of mine thought it was a huge waste of taxpayer $ and signed the petition.
