Governor McAuliffe has declined Republican requests that he defend Virginia’s laws to persecute persons for being.
Monday afternoon, McAuliffe declined Del. Bob Marshall’s request for him to appoint outside counsel on a federal challenge to that law scheduled for a hearing Thursday in U.S. District Court in Norfolk.
Seeing Delegate Bob Marshall’s name in the story is no surprise. He is a weather vane, unfailingly pointing in the direction of hate-full-ness on every social issue. The forces of persecution for being are so frustrated that some are calling for impeaching Attorney-General Herring. Their discomfiture is gratifying.
If it is true that you can judge a person by the enemies he or she makes, Mr. Herring is a pretty decent fellow.
Elections matter, folks.
