Ken Cuccinelli Hates Gays So Much He Sought to Further Oppress Them on Last Day in Office

Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli hates gays so much that he was thinking about how to further oppress them on his last day in office, Think Progress reports:

Ken_cuccinelliCuccinelli’s non-binding opinion, which is dated January 10, 2014, concludes that “a Governor may not direct or require any agency of state government to allow same-sex couples to receive joint marital status for Virginia income tax returns.” Cuccinelli’s successor, Democrat Mark Herring, was sworn in January 11.

TP adds:

The question of whether married same-sex couples may file joint Virginia tax forms hinges upon a potential conflict in state law. Although the state constitution includes an expansive ban on same-sex marriages or similar arrangements, gay rights advocates note that forbidding same-sex couples from filing jointly “is in conflict with the state law that requires conformity with federal rules” — married couples of all kinds file joint tax returns under federal law.

Virginia's new governor Terry McAuliffe, on the other hand, made LGBT rights the first issue on his agenda.

  1. Ken Cuccinelli has serious issues. His obsession with gay people isn't normal.

  13. Easy, Jimmy. The mental image of The Cooch blowing Frothy Mix is enough to put me off gay sex, altogether.

  14. So obsessed with gay sex/rights. Why do I suspect that he has a strapon that someone uses on him?

  16. The Cooch is mentally ill. Let's hope he seeks treatment now that he is unburdened with elective office.

  17. That's the caliber of opinion we've come to expect from Cuccinelli -- on all fronts.

    Posted by: Hunter | Jan 14, 2014 9:33:39 AM

  18. He is apparently seriously considering a run for Mark Warner's senate seat. So, there's that.

  22. Look up the word "loser" in the dictionary and I'll bet you'll find a picture of Ken Cuccinelli. Hopefully his political career is over and he'll ride off into the sunset.

  23. Towelroad, what's with all the ads that cover up your content on the mobile site, & can't easily be moved or closed? Reading your site has become so frustrating as to not be worth the effort.

  24. I can hardly wait until the day Cuccinelli is caught doing whatever he thinks is screened from view by all this smoke. Conservatives with his level of obsession over homosexuality always get caught.

  25. "Ken Cuccinelli Hates Gays So Much He Sought to Further Oppress Them on Last Day in Office"

    Just the sort of over-the-top headline one should expect from militant progressive ideologue Andy Towle.

    Grow a brain, Andy.
