Latest Virginia Attorney Items
She's been keeping a low profile, but Republicans say Hillary Rodham Clinton's potential presidential ambitions can only be hurt by the heavily covered recent stories involving her scandal-plagued friend Anthony D. Weiner's sexcapades in New York and her close confidant Terry McAuliffe's tangles with federal regulators over a former business enterprise.
Awhile back, gubernatorial hopeful and Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli presented his plan for job creation in Virginia, and on July 29, he introduced his energy plan for the state. I am terribly disappointed with gubernatorial challenger Terry McAuliffe's campaign, which has given Virginians few (if any) ideas for job creation or energy and has only attacked Mr. Cuccinelli with negative and erroneous statements.
A three-month investigation by Richmond prosecutors has cleared Virginia Attorney General Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II of criminal wrongdoing for his failure to report in financial disclosures thousands of dollars he received in personal gifts.
As your editorial discussed, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit has ruled that the Obama administration illegally appointed members to the National Labor Relations Board ("The NLRB's unfair labor practice," Comment & Analysis, May 13). And now the U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear the appeal of that decision. My imagination would be overtaxed to believe that the high court would not agree with the lower court.
Virginia Attorney General Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II used to be on record supporting a federal constitutional amendment against same-sex marriage, but now that he is running for governor, he refuses to take a stand.
Recently, Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli and Terry McAuliffe were at a joint appearance in Reston to discuss business issues ("Virginia GOP governor candidate Kenneth Cuccinelli rejects attempts to label him on cultural issues." Web, June 30). It was a joint appearance, but not a real debate because, as we know, Mr. McAuliffe is afraid of debates.
Neither embezzlement charges against Virginia's former Executive Mansion chef nor ongoing federal and state investigations into Gov. Bob McDonnell's gift disclosures will be enough to weigh down the gubernatorial campaign of Virginia Attorney General Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II, political observers say.
Democrats like President Obama and Terry McAuliffe like to portray themselves as champions of lower-income Virginians. But Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli has nailed it by pointing out that their "war on coal" (as an Obama adviser has described it) is really a war on the poor ("Obama climate adviser urges 'war on coal,'" Web, June 25).
Last week's Supreme Court rulings on gay marriage have amplified a split in the Republican Party between social conservatives urging a call to arms and a more libertarian wing that says it's an issue for the states to decide. So in which camp is Virginia Attorney General Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II, who has defended the state's 2006 ballot initiative banning same-sex marriage?
