VA Dems To AG: How Much Is Anti-HCR Lawsuit Costing Taxpayers?
http://tpmmuckraker.talkingpointsmemo.com/2010/03/dems_...


At a press conference, State Sen. Doald McEachin accused the AG of pushing "a right wing agenda" with the approval of Gov. Bob McDonnell, and blasted Cuccinelli for devoting time to a suit that is"doomed to fail." We gave our own detailed assessment of the lawsuit's (slim) chances of success here.

In their request, the Democrats asked for information not just on the lawsuit's cost, but also on any co-ordination between Cuccinelli's office and the other AGs, or national conservative groups. They also want Cuccinelli's full schedule since taking office.

2. I didn't vote for him
This was mainly those who call themselves "Independents" and the Democrats who decided not to vote.

I voted, hell I was an elections officer. I got to my polling place at 5am and didn't leave until 10pm.

4. I'm glad to hear the Dems are taking this tack....
this is a winning issue especially due to the finances of the states, no one has money to waste on these frivolous lawsuits.
