Bill DeSteph Held a Fundraiser at a Men’s-Only Club with a History of Anti-Semitism and Racism

By Cole Driver on July 19, 2019.

In June 2019, Bill DeSteph, a State Senator representing Virginia’s 8th district, held a fundraiser in a club which has a sordid history of denying admission to women, Jewish and black Americans.

The fundraiser, tabbed at $125 per person, was hosted at the historically all-male Commonwealth Club in Richmond, Virginia, which was originally founded by former Confederate military officers.
