Harvey Bryant, Virginia Beach's Commonwealth's Attorney has a challenger. And this morning that challenger is cleaning out his desk after being released from his position with the Portsmouth Commonwealth's Attorney's office. Mark Hardman, who announced he will be running for the Virginia Beach position has a lot more time to campaign.
Hardman recently announced that he will be running as an Independent against Harvey Bryant. Employed in the office Harvey Bryant requested to act as special prosecutor in the investigation of the notorious Sessoms/Obama flyers, he was informed by Earle Mobley that this presented a situation that would prohibit Hardman's continued service, or words to this effect. Bryant and Mobley are associated with local Republicans.
