    Governor appoints ex-GOP operative to ABC board

    RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe is appointing a long-time GOP operative Boyd Marcus to the Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Board.

    Republicans panned the move shortly after it was announced Wednesday as a political payback for a GOP defector.

    In a surprise move last year, Marcus endorsed McAuliffe and advised his campaign against Republican Ken Cuccinelli.

    Marcus had previously worked for U.S. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and former Gov. Jim Gilmore.

    A spokeswoman for the agency said Boyd's salary would be set by the McAuliffe administration. She said under former Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell, the board chairman was paid $136,000 a year and a board member was paid $124,000.

    House Speaker William J. Howell said the appointment, which has to be approved by the General Assembly, deserves additional scrutiny.

    My friends…let’s not get distracted by what party any one of these people belongs to.  Focusing on that is just what they want…  Let’s instead focus on this question:  What in the heck are we taxpayers getting for the $100,000+ we’re paying each and every one of these ABC commissioners?   

    This is payback for jumping to the democrat! Call it a bribe if you will but a cushy job and generous salary for sure.

    What exactly do these guys do that requires a salary like that?  It can’t be a full-time job.

    Gee…i was on the library board for 8 years and paid nothing.  One year on the ABC board and you get $100K+ 

    Says a lot about what society values, doesn’t it?
