Poor Poor Ginny Fields

Who in their right mind would want to inherit the political baggage of C. Virginia Fields through no fault of their own other than their name being similar (or exactly the same)?

Chances are that Virginia Fields (no not that Virginia Fields) had that in mind when she ran for office using the name "Ginny Fields."

Yes folks, there are two Virginia Fields in New York elective politics and Ginny Fields (right) is still in office, in the New York State Assembly representing communities from Long Island. Now using the name Ginny, her constituents in Suffolk County (where she was a member of the Suffolk County Legislature before being elected to the State Assembly) have in the past known her as Virginia.
