1. Elliot "Spike" Maynard
He lost for re-election to the Court in the May 2008 primary, and was eventually replaced by Margaret Workman. Though he ran as a Democrat in all of his previous elections, he is now running in the Republican primary to attempt to replace Third District Congressman Nick Rahall. Maynard doesn't stand a chance!

The justice that Blankenship bought and paid for was Brent Benjamin. He will be up for re-election in 2016.

3. That's Spike on the left
with Don "the total personification of evil" Blankenship on the right.

Here's a picture of Benjamin (I tried to find one with Blankenship and Benjamin together -- they have avoided that mistake so far).

8. Spike
Spike was my mother's attorney, and later, a judge in her divorce. In my opinion, a more crooked man you will not find. It is fitting that he is "best buds" with Blankenship.

As a side note, I remember hearing rumors from my mother that his son had a cocaine problem.

I look at his Facebook page and am discouraged to see so many people supporting Maynard. I hope Nick kicks his ass.

9. Welcome to DU!
It's always a treat to see another West Virginian join the crowd -- whether you are a native or a former resident or even just have family in West Virginia, I consider you one of us!

5. The Easiest Way To Determine Which WV Politician
is owned by Massey is to determine if they are holding office. If they are in office Massey owns them.
