WhenVirginiaWasBlue.com: Dems-Virginia taxpayers ‘real victims’ of Cuccinelli activism


Democratic Party of Virginia chair Dick Cranwell spoke out on Tuesday on the ruling by an Albemarle County judge on a request for information made by Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli related to climate-change research by a former University of Virginia professor.

“I was glad to see this ideological crusade by Mr. Cuccinelli dismissed by Judge Peatross, but the real victims are Virginia’s tax payers,” Cranwell said in a news release issued by the Democratic Party of Virginia. “The attorney general is using his taxpayer-funded office as his own personal piggy bank, at a time when Virginians need help. These ideological crusades do nothing to protect Virginians from predatory lending. They do nothing to protect consumers from unsafe products or fraudulent services. In short they do nothing but advance the attorney general’s reputation as an extremist who cares more about his ideology than he does about Virginia. Taxpayers beware, Mr. Cuccinelli is wasting your money.”
