Tom Perriello Sells Stake in Company Interested in Building Trump's Border Wall

Looks like Virginia Democratic Gubernatorial candidate Tom Perriello was for Trump's border wall (and pipelines) before he was against it.

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tom Perriello has sold his financial holdings in a construction company interested in building President Donald Trump’s wall along the Mexican border and that has worked with Dominion Energy, a Perriello punching bag, on energy projects in Virginia.

Perriello’s investment in Fluor Corp., revealed last month on the former congressman’s mandatory conflict-of-interest disclosure, cut against his campaign message of populist reform, standing up to Trump and fighting corporate power.

At the time, Perriello’s campaign said he wasn’t aware of the investment. The campaign confirmed the stock was sold on April 18 but declined to comment on the reasons behind the decision.
