Virginia’s Radical Republican Nominee for Governor Wants to Criminalize Adultery –

If Democrats Cannot Beat This Guy They Ought to Get Out of Politics

Virginia Republicans opted to nominate their candidate for Governor in the only 2013 race that matters by holding a convention.  This was done in order to get the most conservative slate of candidates possible.  That was achieved.  The nominee for Governor is the Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, who it is now reported said this about laws forbidding adultery.

Speaking to Richmond’s Style Weekly magazine back in 2008, Cuccinelli defended laws criminalizing extramarital sex, saying that such restrictions “ought to stay on the books.”

“Frankly it wouldn’t hurt to enforce them more,” Cuccinelli is quoted saying. The magazine paraphrased Cuccinelli drawing a comparison to “perjury inasmuch as the occasional prosecution or two would get people thinking twice.”

And here is what his campaign said when asked about the statements.

In response to an email from POLITICO, Cuccinelli spokeswoman Anna Nix said the question of adultery was not a major issue in the 2013 election.

“Ken Cuccinelli is someone who believes in and supports the institution of marriage. The campaign for the governorship in Virginia is about the concerns of voters, which include first and foremost creating jobs and growing the economy,” Nix said.

Not exactly a change of opinion is it?  Mr. Cuccinelli has a chance to win this race only because the Virginia Democrats are pretty useless, and have as their candidate Terry McAuliffe who has never before had elected office and whose major credentials are that he is a friend of Bill and Hil, and has raised gobs of money for the Democratic party.

So Mr. Cuccinelli could be the next Virginia Governor.  How this for a campaign slogan?
