Cuccinelli wastes taxpayer money...again
June 27, 2012
The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports, "A legal challenge to the Environmental Protection Agency's greenhouse gas regulations by Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, energy industry groups and several other states was rejected Tuesday by the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington. The three-judge panel, composed of one Republican and two Democratic appointees, ruled that the EPA was 'unambiguously correct' in using existing federal law to address global warming. 'This is how science works,' the unsigned opinion said."
Progressive Point: Virginians expect our Attorney General to spend his time making our lives better--focusing on crime prevention and consumer protection. Instead of doing his job, Ken Cuccinelli has used the Attorney General's office to chase frivolous and ideological lawsuits with our taxpayer dollars. But even after the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington flatly rejected his crusade against the EPA, Ken Cuccinelli is still determined to spend our taxes on his own partisan priorities rather than doing his job.
Most Virginians would get the message if a three-judge panel told them the EPA was "unambiguously correct" in addressing global warming and, "this is how science works." By using his office for his personal agenda, Ken Cuccinelli is neglecting the job he was elected to do--represent the Commonwealth and the people of Virginia. Ken Cuccinelli shouldn't have to be told how science or democracy works.
