Oh, look who Gov. Blackface McKlanhood made sure to pardon just before he left office,

isn't he a wonderful guy?
Northam pardoned Democratic state senator Joe Morrissey, 64, who was charged with having a sexual relationship with his 17-year-old, part-time receptionist and pleaded guilty to contributing to the delinquency of a minor in 2014. After serving a three-month jail sentence, Morrissey had a child with the victim and the couple married when she turned 18.
Morrissey has a long history of tangling with the law. As a county prosecutor in the early 1990s, he twice served jail time for punching an opposing defense lawyer and for writing a letter to a judge that was deemed threatening. He later had his law license suspended after he allegedly attempted to settle a rape case in exchange for donations to charities he selected.

After he was convicted of assault for punching his handyman in 1999, Morrissey was barred from practicing law in federal courts for allegedly trying to bribe a Habitat for Humanity employee to falsify his community service hours.

But I'm sure he's a good, reliable Democrat, so it's worth throwing that under the rug, right?
