This Friday: Ken Cuccinelli to 'explain' why AGs are wrong not being as astoundingly anti-equality as he was

by Jeremy Hooper

With elected office no longer taking his time, Ken Cuccinelli, Virginia's extremely anti-gay former Attorney General and gubernatorial candidate, is now moving on to the kind of activism work that could likely be his next phase. This Friday, he'll be hanging out with the anti-equality Heritage Foundation, where he will surely chastise the man who was elected his successor, Democrat Mark Herring, for not defending the "...is for lovers" state's unconstitutional marriage ban:

Look, I'll admit that it is the rare occasion when Attorneys General are not bound to defend laws—but the far-right fervor that chose to discriminate against certain kinds of taxpayers because of who we are is, thankfully, a rare thing here in 21st century America. It is both proper and fitting for constitutionally knowledgable AGs to drop defense of these nasty bans that so pointedly target a minority population.

If groups like Heritage want to use one of the 21st century's most notoriously anti-gay Attorneys General to make the counterpoint, I will not stand in their way. I like my side's odds.
