  • So, when has Cuccinelli been wrong on the *law*?Policy

    The last three weeks have been amusing as liberals have attacked Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli over his legal justifications on “sexual orientation” as a protected class and defending Virginia’s sovereignty against federal overstretch in the regulation of commerce.
