ODU Professors Balk at Cuccinelli's Climate Request, May 8, 2010:
Nineteen Old Dominion University professors on Friday joined a rising tide of opposition to state Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli's request for documents involving a former climate-change researcher at the University of Virginia.
In a statement, they said Cuccinelli's actions "echo some of the worst offenses of the McCarthy era," referring to Joseph McCarthy, a U.S. senator from Wisconsin who sought to uncover Communists in the '50s.
The attorney general, they wrote, should "cease and desist from this and further 'witch hunts' driven by partisan political agendas that waste valuable state resources in a difficult economy."
Editorial: U-Va. Should Fight Cuccinelli's Faulty Investigation of Michael Mann, May 7, 2010:
WE KNEW Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II (R) had declared war on reality. Now he has declared war on the freedom of academic inquiry as well. We hope that Gov. Robert F. McDonnell (R) and the University of Virginia have the spine to repudiate Mr. Cuccinelli's abuse of the legal code. If they do not, the quality of Virginia's universities will suffer for years to come.

The Tea-Party Taliban, May 6, 2010:
Since assuming office in January Cuccinelli has been on a freakish non-stop crusade to enforce a moral order common to both the Tea Party and the Taliban.
In his few short months in office Cuccinelli has used the power of the state to try to rescind anti-discrimination policies for gays and lesbians, approved a new policy allowing sectarian prayer by police chaplains at public events, and even tried to cover up the bare-breast of the Roman Goddess who has graced the state seal since 1776. His explanation: "Just because we've always done something a certain way doesn't mean we always have to continue doing it that way."
