Shaun Kenney, executive director of the Republican Party of Virginia. Photo by www.jaltieriphotography.comShaun Kenney, executive director of the Republican Party of Virginia, has been cleared of any wrongdoing by a special prosecutor investigating claims that Kenney used his position as former chairman of the Fluvanna Board of Supervisors for his own financial gain.
Special Prosecutor James Fisher said in a letter today (Aug. 15) to Virginia State Police Special Agent Barry Tuggle that, “After a lengthy review, my office has determined that the allegations against Mr. Kenney do not constitute violations of Virginia law, and we are closing our file accordingly.” He added, “…We have determined that Mr. Kenney’s conduct in no way violated any provisions of the laws of the Commonwealth, criminal or otherwise.”
“I’m relieved,” said Kenney when he learned the results of the investigation. “We suspected this was spurious and we received confirmation of that today. Obviously it always hurts to have your reputation questioned in public; I’m just glad that mine had the opportunity to shine through. It has been a distraction for me and my family for some time and now,” he added, “Now we can get back to doing the good work that we wanted to do in the town of Columbia, without that backdrop of small town politics.”
