Flippin resigns from William & Mary BOV

Laura Flippin, the northern Virginia lawyer who was found guilty of public intoxication last summer, has resigned from the College of William and Mary Board of Visitors, according to the Virginia Gazette and other media outlets.

Flippin participated in the board’s meetings Thursday, but submitted her letter of resignation to Gov. Bob McDonnell on Friday.

College president Taylor Reveley said Flippin’s experience should be used to “talk more effectively with one another about the dangers of high-risk drinking,” according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
