Ken Cuccinelli is only interested in representing himself
July 2, 2012
The Washington Post reports, "It's clear that Cuccinelli's legal crusades serve primarily to win him right-wing acclaim and not to actually roll back the allegedly tyrannical liberal legislation he decries. The ambitious Virginia conservative, who's running for governor, lost big on Thursday when the Supreme Court upheld President Obama's health-care reform act... He suffered another setback on Tuesday when a federal appeals court in the District slapped down a legal case against the Environmental Protection Agency."
Progressive Point: Following yet another major legal defeat last week, Ken Cuccinelli refuses to move forward and do the job he was elected to do. The people of Virginia need an Attorney General that works as hard as they do, but instead Cuccinelli's only accomplishment has been losing his conservative legal crusades and preparing to run for Governor.
Cuccinelli suffered two major legal defeats last week, but it is clear he still hasn't gotten the message. His wrong-headed, frivolous law suits are costing Virginia taxpayers. When the Supreme Court of the United States and U.S. Court of Appeals disagree with you in the same week you should know you're doing something wrong. Ken Cuccinelli's job is to represent the people of Virginia as our lawyer, but it is obvious that he is only interested in representing himself and using our tax money to do it.
