That’s right, Virginia GOP Attorney General candidate Mark Obenshain voted to kill a vaccination requirement that has proven amazingly successful in reducing the HPV cancer virus among girls. Why would he do such a seemingly crazy thing? The answer is obvious: because he’s a right-wing extremist who cares more about ideology than about pragmatism and getting positive, real-world results.
Of course, the type of politician who would put his ideology ahead of the health and lives of children is the LAST person we’d ever want as Virginia Attorney General. Kind of like the current occupant, Ken Cuccinelli, who Mark Obenshain has said is his model for that office. Shuddderrrrr….
