GOP gubernatorial candidate in Va leading the right flank in the war on women ... and men ...

... by actively campaigning to re-institute the Old Dominion's anti-sodomy law that makes oral or anal sex between consenting adult a felony ...

Ken Cuccinelli, the current VA Attorney General, claims that it's all for the children and the need to have this law to protect them from sexual predators.

He's apparently not bright enough to figure out how to write a law that criminalizes sex acts with minors without turning amorous adults into felons.

Or else he really does think the State should be in your bedroom.

Yes, Virginia (and Delaware), there really IS a difference between Libertarians and Republicans.



On the other hand (and this is a really bad pun), I checked and it appears that hand-jobs will still be legal.

It's great to be in Virginia these days:
Mcauliffe is a liar and he is your alternative. VA Libertarians should make hay while the sun shines.
