Sorry, flacknasty, but your problems with pronoun/antecedent agreement once again leads to your, how did you say, "dumbf++k"ness once again. Virginia was taken back into the union, but not with the capitol of Wheeling...justifying West Virginia required a partisan SCOTUS in 1871.<quoted text> Hey dumbf++K! Do you see West Virginia in my post anywhere? F++king nonreading comprehension friggin' libtards.
<quoted text> The restored government was recognized by the Union, as will as Abraham Lincoln, as the State of Virginia with it's capital in Wheeling.
Gee, flackmassey, Lincoln was alive in 1871? Did you see that on Scify, Discovery, or NASCAR? "Virginia v. West Virginia, 78 U.S. 39 (1871), is a 6-to-3 ruling by the Supreme Court of the United States which held that where a governor has discretion in the conduct of the election, the legislature is bound by his action and CANNOT UNDO THE RESULTS BASED ON FRAUD. The case implicitly ratified the secession of the state of West Virginia from the state of Virginia, and explicitly ratified that the counties of Berkeley and Jefferson were part of West Virginia." Pretty sure you Grumpy Old Pricks would refer to that as legislating from the bench or the spoils of war if it didn't jibe with your current Dixiecrat-rethuglicant ideology.
