It took a government worker for the Department of Motor Vehicles suffering confusion with the line of succession rules in Virginia, to bring national attention to a bizarre statewide descent into madness.
A peculiar rash of unsolicited "confessions" has rocked the state of Virginia. Much has been on social media, however there was one DMV worker (a white male whose name is being withheld) who walked into a police station and claimed to have lynched a black man 30 years ago.

Not everyone is happy with this outbreak of hysterical catharsis. Joel Miller who specializes in coordinating mental health triage for disasters, said, "we could dispatch councilors, but that would require the governor to allocate disaster funding. Obviously the crisis now is we're a bit lacking in governance. Until someone figures out who's in charge, I guess the free-for-all will continue.
