Your daily Letter to the Editor — June 17, 2013
In a June 7 letter (“Talk about McAuliffe contributors, too”), William Daly chided The Roanoke Times for not reporting on out-of-state contributions to Democrat Terry McAuliffe’s gubernatorial campaign. Daly referred to two columns that contained unfavorable information about Republican Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli’s contributors, which Daly did not dispute.
I don’t have those articles and cannot comment on them, but I do recall reports in the past of troubling and, in one case, allegedly criminal activity by some Cuccinelli supporters. But Daly is correct; we do need information about both candidates’ contributors.
So what about the McAuliffe contributors? Are any of them attempting to do any of the following:
* Prevent the EPA from protecting our air and water.
Unfortunately, Cuccinelli has job performance problems as troubling as the motives of some of his contributors. He has wasted time and money on frivolous and politically motivated lawsuits that he lost. Shouldn’t he have to pay the state for that?
I hope we will not reward his poor judgment with the highest office in our state. That would place our judgment in question.
