Career

Virginia state delegate

After earning his law degree, Allen served as clerk for a federal judge and then opened a law office in Charlottesville. Allen's first race for the Virginia House of Delegates was in 1979, two years after he graduated from law school. He placed third in a field of four candidates. Allen states that he lost because he wasn't himself and was listening to the advice of his campaign manager who suggested he wear wingtips instead of his usual cowboy boots. He ran again in 1981 with the cowboy boots and won the election.[8] The seat he held was the same one held by Thomas Jefferson. He was a delegate from 1982 to 1991, representing a district in Albemarle County. In his Charlottesville law office, Allen had a noose hanging from a ficus tree, a decoration critics have charged was racially insensitive, but that Allen has explained as a symbol of his tough stance on law-and-order issues and as "really more of a lasso."[4] Nickname: C-Ville Location in the Commonwealth of Virginia Coordinates: Country United States State Virginia County Albemarle County Founded 1762  - Mayor David E.

U.S. House of Representatives

On November 5, 1991, Allen won a special election to fill the seat in the U.S. House of Representatives for Virginia's 7th District. Incumbent congressman D. French Slaughter, Jr. had resigned due to a series of strokes. Allen's opponent was Slaughter's cousin, Kay Slaughter.

Allen's career in the House was short-lived; in the 1990s round of redistricting, Allen's district, which stretched from the fringes of the Washington suburbs to Charlottesville and included much of the Shenandoah Valley, was eliminated even though Virginia gained a congressional seat as a result of the 1990 Census.

Allen's district was split among three neighboring districts. While his home in Earlysville was placed in the 5th District of Lewis F. Payne, Jr., most of his district was placed in the 10th District of Frank Wolf. Allen moved to Mount Vernon and prepared to challenge Wolf in a primary. However, he bowed out of the primary a short time later; state Republican leaders had let it be known that he could not expect any support for his planned run for governor in 1993 if he made such a challenge.

Governor

In November 1993, Allen was elected the 67th Governor of Virginia, serving from 1994 to 1998. His opponent in the 1993 election Attorney General Mary Sue Terry, had an early 29 point lead, in public opinion polls[10] and a million dollar fundraising advantage.[11] However, Allen struck a hot button with voters across party and racial lines with his campaign proposal to abolish parole for violent felons. This response to a surge of crime in the state connected with voters, in contrast to Terry's proposal to increase gun control as a remedy.[12][verification needed] Allen overcame the deficit and won with 58.3% of the vote, the largest margin (+17.4 points) since Albertis S. Harrison Jr. defeated H. Clyde Pearson with a margin of +27.7 points in 1961.[13][14] Tim Kaine, the current Governor The Governor of Virginia serves as the chief executive of the Commonwealth of Virginia for a four-year term. ...

Law partner

In February 1998, Allen became a Richmond-based partner at the law firm McGuire Woods Battle & Boothe (now McGuireWoods LLP), as head of its business expansion and relocation team. At the time, Allen said "I think it's healthy to get out of government. If you stay in too long, you lose track of reality and the real world."[16] According to a disclosure form Allen filed on May 12, 2000, he was paid $450,000 by the firm between January 1999 and April 2000.[17] May 12 is the 132nd day of the year (133rd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... 2000 (MM) was a leap year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


Board member

While out of office, Allen became a director at two Virginia high-tech companies and advised a third, all government contractors that he had assisted while governor.[18]


Xybernaut

In mid-1998, Allen joined the board of Xybernaut,[19] a company selling mobile, flip-screen computers. The firm never made a profit — it posted 33 consecutive quarterly losses after it went public in 1996.[20] In September 1999, Allen and the rest of the company's board dismissed the company's accounting firm, PricewaterhouseCoopers, which had issued a report with a "growing concern" paragraph that questioned the company’s financial health.[21] Xybernaut Corporation is a provider of wearable / mobile computing hardware, software and services, bringing communications and full-function computing power in a hands-free design. ...

Allen made almost no money from the stock, according to his communications director, John Reid.[17] According to the Associated Press, Allen steered compensation from his board service, other than stock options, to his law firm.[18] He was granted options worth $1.5 million at their peak.[17] Allen listed them on his disclosure forms for 2002 and 2003,[17] but never exercised them.[17]


Commonwealth Biotechnologies

Allen joined Commonwealth's board of directors about two months after leaving the governor's office in January 1998. "I learned a lot on their board and enjoyed working with 'em, and they seem to be doing all right, I guess," Allen said in October 2006.


Commonwealth granted Allen options on 15,000 shares of company stock at $7.50 a share in May 1999. Allen steered other compensation from his board service to his law firm, McGuire Woods. As of late 2006, Allen had not cashed in any options; the stock as of that date was well under $5 per share, making the options valueless for the moment. Commonwealth reported its first full year of profitability in 2005.[18]


Com-Net Ericsson

Allen became a member of the advisory board of Com-Net Ericsson in February 2000. The advisory board's responsibility was to meet at least twice a year and provide advice and service. Allen terminated his service on the board before the end of 2000. He was paid approximately $300,000 for his services.[22]

2006 re-election campaign

Allen's term in the Senate expired in January 2007. He sought re-election in 2006. Allen won the Republican nomination on August 11, 2006, and faced two opponents in the general election: the Democratic Party nominee, former Secretary of the Navy James H. Webb,[31] and Gail Parker, a retired Air Force officer and retired civilian Pentagon budget analyst who ran on the Independent Green Party ballot line.

Ownership of Barr Labs stock

It was reported on August 8, 2006, that Allen owned stock in Barr Pharmaceuticals, maker of the Plan B "morning after pill". The Webb campaign criticized Allen for holding stock in a company that makes a product that many of his supporters oppose. Allen responded by saying that he holds the stock because Barr has created jobs in Virginia, and by pointing to his consistently pro-life voting record.[35] Allen is described as an "abortion opponent"; as governor, he pushed successfully for parental notification of teenagers' abortions, and in the Senate, he opposed the approval of Plan B for over-the-counter sales, though he still favors its legality.[36] Allen opposes the use of public funding for elective abortions, although he supports the legality of abortions in cases of incest, rape, or when the woman's life is endangered.[37] is the 220th day of the year (221st in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Macaca controversy

Allen points to Webb aide S.R. Sidarth, referring to him as "Macaca."[38]
Main article: Virginia United States Senate election, 2006 — Macaca controversy

On August 11, 2006, at a campaign stop in Breaks, Virginia, near the Kentucky border, Allen twice used the word macaca to refer to S.R. Sidarth, who was filming the event as a "tracker" for the opposing Webb campaign. Sidarth is of Indian ancestry, but was born and raised in Fairfax County, Virginia. Macaca is a slur meaning "monkey" in francophone African nations, which led to speculation that Allen may have heard the epithet from his mother,[39] a Francophone who grew up in French-colonial Tunisia. Allen apologized and later said that he did not know the meaning of the word.[40] After the incident, many bloggers and comedians began to refer to Allen as "Senator Macaca".[41][42][43] Image File history File links Allentaunting. ...

Allegations of Allen's use of racial slur in college

On September 24, 2006, Salon.com Washington correspondent Michael Scherer reported that the magazine had interviewed nineteen of his teammates and that "[t]hree former college football teammates of Sen. George Allen say that the Virginia Republican repeatedly used the racial epithet 'nigger' and demonstrated racist attitudes toward blacks during the early 1970s."[44] One of Allen's classmates who made such a claim is University of Virginia political science professor Larry Sabato. Sabato later admitted his information was second hand.[3] However, seven teammates have stated they do not recall any racist behavior on Allen's part. Four of these have made statements that were released by the Allen campaign.[45] Allen dismissed the claims as "ludicrously false."[46] Screenshot of Salon. ... // Nigger is a racial slur used to refer to dark-skinned people, especially those of African ancestry. ...

Mother's religious and ethnic background

Main article: Virginia United States Senate election, 2006 — Allen's remarks about his Jewish heritage

On August 25, 2006, the Jewish periodical The Forward reported that in all likelihood, Allen's mother Etty Allen, née Henrietta Lumbroso, was Jewish.[47] At a debate on September 18, 2006, WUSA-TV reporter Peggy Fox noted to Allen, "It has been reported that your grandfather Felix, whom you were given your middle name for, was Jewish." Allen's indignant response, criticizing Fox for "making aspersions", attracted the attention of the national press, prompting speculation that he wanted to conceal any Jewish ancestry. The next day, Allen issued a statement confirming his mother's Jewish ancestry. Allen's mother feared retribution against her family if her religious and ethnic background became public, and had originally asked Allen to keep that information private.[48] The Virginia Senate election of 2006 was held on November 7, 2006. ...

Confederate flag affinity

Allen has a long history of interest in the Confederate flag, in spite of his never having lived in the South until his transfer from UCLA to the University of Virginia as a sophomore in college.[4] The following are the flags used by the short-lived Confederate States of America. ... The University of California, Los Angeles, generally known as UCLA, is a public university whose main campus is located in the affluent Westwood neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, United States. ...

Allegedly, Allen has displayed the Confederate flag, in some way, from 1967 to 2000.[4][49] Allen wore a Confederate flag pin for his high school senior class photo. He displayed a Confederate flag in his family's living room until 1992. Allen has stated that the flag was a part of a collection of flags. In 1993, Allen's first statewide TV campaign ad for governor included a Confederate flag. Greg Stevens, the political consultant who made the 1993 TV ad, confirmed its inclusion. Allen has confirmed that the pin in his high school yearbook was a Confederate flag. Allen has said "it is possible" that he had a Confederate flag on his car in high school.[4] 1967 (MCMLXVII) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar (the link is to a full 1967 calendar). ...


Minority groups, especially African-Americans, in Virginia criticized Allen for his policies and his embrace of the Confederate flag, which the NAACP condemns as a symbol of racism and hate. Allen also opposed a state holiday in honor of Martin Luther King Jr.[50] The state holiday in favor of Martin Luther King Jr. was initially attached to Lee-Jackson day, a day honoring Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson. There was much controversy in Virginia about combining the days. Governor Jim Gilmore proposed splitting the days into a Lee-Jackson Day and a Martin Luther King day.[51] The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP, generally pronounced as EN Double AY SEE PEE) is one of the oldest and most influential civil rights organizations in the United States. ...

In 1995, 1996, and 1997, Allen proclaimed April as Confederate History and Heritage Month and called the Civil War "a four-year struggle for independence and sovereign rights."[52] The proclamation did not mention slavery, and his successor, Republican Governor James Gilmore, changed the proclamation and wrote a version that denounced slavery.[49] Combatants United States of America (Union) Confederate States of America (Confederacy) Commanders Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S.

Allen's sister's memoir

In 2000, Allen's younger sister Jennifer Allen Richard wrote in her memoir Fifth Quarter: The Scrimmage of a Football Coach's Daughter (Random House Publishing, 2000) that Allen attacked his younger siblings during his childhood.[53] The memoir claims that Allen held her by her feet over Niagara Falls,[54] struck her boyfriend in the head with a pool cue,[55] threw his brother Bruce through a glass sliding door, tackled his brother Gregory, breaking his collarbone,[56] and dragged Jennifer upstairs by her hair. In the book, she wrote, "George hoped someday to become a dentist…George said he saw dentistry as a perfect profession — getting paid to make people suffer."[56] Random House is a publishing division of the German media conglomerate Bertelsmann based in New York City. ... For other uses, see Niagara Falls (disambiguation). ... This article needs cleanup. ...


In May 2006, Richard qualified some of the claims made in the book.[57] With regards to the pool cue incident, she claimed it was a joke and that "Allen was simply testing her boyfriend's reflexes." With regards to the dentist quote, Jennifer claims that the book was a "novelization of the past" and written from the perspective of a young girl "surrounded by older brothers and a larger-than-life father." She claims to have a great relationship with her brother and noted that Allen stepped in for their father to walk her down the aisle at her wedding.[58]


2008 Presidential Election Speculation

In a survey of 175 Washington insiders conducted by National Journal's "The Hotline" and released April 29, 2005, Allen was the frontrunner for the Republican nomination for the 2008 presidential election.[59] National Journal is a weekly magazine about American politics and government, published by National Journal Group, Inc. ...

In a subsequent insider survey by National Journal in May 2006, Allen had dropped to second place, and John McCain held a 3-to-1 lead over Allen.[60] For McCains grandfather and father, see John S. McCain, Sr. ...


Prior to his loss to Webb in the 2006 senatorial race, Allen had traveled a number of times to Iowa (the first state with a presidential caucus) and New Hampshire (the first state with a presidential primary). He had been widely assumed to be preparing a run for president.[61]


Since the 2006 election, it has been widely assumed that Allen is no longer a viable candidate for the Republican nomination, principally because of the the damage caused by the incidents that caused his double-digit lead in the polls to turn to a narrow defeat that contributed to the Republicans' loss of control of the Senate. It is widely assumed that the negative impact of those incidents would resurface as an issue if Allen were to attempt a 2008 bid for the Republican nomination for president, as well as the allegations of racial insensitivity from his college days and the "macaca" incident.[62][63][64]


On December 10, 2006, Allen gave an interview in which he stated that he would not seek the 2008 nomination.[65] December 10 is the 344th day (345th in leap years) of the year in the Gregorian calendar, 21 days before the next year. ... For the Manfred Mann album, see 2006 (album). ...
