Cuccinelli won’t stand against violence
The attorney general finally finds a federal issue he doesn’t want to wade into.
A couple of years ago, we commended Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli for sitting out a legal challenge headed to the U.S.Supreme Court. Officials from 48 states had filed a brief defending a ban on protests at military funerals. The law was aimed at the despicable Westboro Baptist Church.
This time, we condemn him for keeping his signing pen in his pocket. Forty-seven state attorneys general have signed a letter urging Congress to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act, but Cuccinelli refuses to join them.
