Ken Cuccinelli is a state senator from Virginia. He is currently running for Attorney General of Virginia in the Republican primary.
And he cannot "guarantee" that he "will defend every single law in Virginia."
Now let's look at what the Virginia state website says about the role of the Attorney General:
The duties and powers include:
* Provide legal advice and representation to the Governor and executive agencies, state boards and commissions, and institutions of higher education. The advice commonly includes help with personnel issues, contracts, purchasing, regulatory and real estate matters and the review of proposed legislation. The Office also represents those agencies in court.
* Provide written legal advice in the form of official opinions to members of the General Assembly and government officials.
* Defend criminal convictions on appeal, and defend the state when prisoners sue concerning their incarceration.
* Defend the constitutionality of state laws when they are challenged in court.
* Enforce state laws that protect businesses and consumers when there are violations. Individual consumer complaints are usually handled by another agency. [emphasis added]
Does this guy really think that a man who doesn't believe in the laws of the state of Virginia is qualified at all to be Attorney General?
