He'd promised no committee chairmanships to the GOP.
Today, he unveiled a proposal with three Republican chairmen, and two Republican majority committees.

Saslaw says renegade Rocky Mount Democrat Virgil Goode has "essentially gone over" to the Republican camp and did NOT influence the plan.
Meanwhile, Democratic Caucus Chairman Edd Houck said the plan was drawn up according to Goode's wishes.
Goode -- seen here with renegade Republican Jane Woods -- kept his wheeling and dealing private.
