Clerical Error Voids McDonnell Appointments

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A clerical error by former Gov. Bob McDonnell's administration has essentially voided about 60 appointments to various state boards and commissions.
    
New Gov. Terry McAuliffe's office said that McDonnell's office did not forward the appointments to the General Assembly for confirmation. Without legislative approval, the McAuliffe administration said it considers those board seats vacant.
    
In general, state lawmakers typically approve gubernatorial picks without debate.
    
The McAuliffe administration has encouraged those appointees to reapply, but has not guaranteed that they will be re-appointed.
    
A spokesman for Republican House Speaker William J. Howell said the speaker's office is currently reviewing the situation.
