Virginia Young Dems Reject Cuccinelli’s Name Calling

Urges AG to focus on real problems

As Virginians struggle with real-world problems such as job loss and skyrocketing gas prices, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli recently claimed in the Richmond-Times Dispatch that The Communist Manifesto is embraced by “large swaths of academia and the legal profession and the people who know how to run our lives better than we do” (Richmond-Times Dispatch 1.2.2011).

“As 137 members of the General Assembly are busy drafting and submitting legislation to help people across the Commonwealth, this sort of partisan bickering does nothing to advance the agenda of average Virginians a few short days before the start of this year’s General Assembly session,” said Sean Holihan, President of the Virginia Young Democrats.

  • That’s not on-point at all, as in this case nobody’s “bickering,” it’s just Ken Cuccinelli throwing out red meat and making outrageous comments. Again, where’s the “bickering?”  This is about Ken Cuccinelli’s extremist ideology, his “red baiting” of Democrats, and his appeal to the far right wing of the political spectrum. Nothing more.
