Questions Raised Over Paid Trip

A $1,900 trip given to Virginia Senator Bryce Reeves by a skill game company has raised questions. Reeves disclosed the trip in 2022, listing Pace-O-Matic as the sponsor. However, neither Reeves nor Pace-O-Matic clarified the nature of the trip. Pictures on Pace-O-Matic’s Facebook page suggest Reeves attended a Wyoming rodeo event. Reeves chairs a gambling regulation subcommittee and voted for bills favoring Pace-O-Matic. While Reeves claims compliance with Virginia laws, the incident underscores concerns about the influence of lobbying interests in state politics.
