"Ken Cuccinelli, the Republican Attorney General of Virginia, agreed with WMAL radio host Cheri Jacobus Tuesday when she insinuated that President Obama may have illegitimately won the election through lenient voting laws.
Jacobus stated, “He can’t win a state where photo ID is required. So clearly there’s something going on out there.” In fact, President Obama won Michigan and Florida, both of which have voter identification laws.
Jacobus’ co-host Brian Wilson claimed to have received several emails from listeners wishing to report voter fraud. He then asked Cuccinelli, “When you hear these kinds of stories, one wonders, why isn’t there a way for the Attorney General of the commonwealth of Virginia to get involved and to look into these matters?”
Cuccinelli told Wilson he was unable to investigate election violations unless state officials first requested an inquiry, but agreed that there “ought to be a way” for him to look into these matters. After Jacobus seemingly became angry with him for not investigating the voter fraud allegations, Cuccinelli stated, ”Your tone suggests you’re a little upset with me. You’re preaching to the choir. I’m with you completely.”
Oh my! The Attorney General of Virginia implying that the president of these divided states stole an election? [Source]
Of course, as is always the case in these verbal slip-ups; Mr. Cuccinelli is now walking back his wingnut moment.
"After the interview, Noah Wall, political spokesman for Cuccinnelli, said in an email that Cuccinelli never meant to question the legality of President Barack Obama‘s campaign: ”There is no question that President Obama legitimately won re-election. Ken was simply talking about the fact that there were problems on election day which need to be addressed.”
Finally, if you haven't heard of Michael David Dunn, hang on; you will be hearing more about him soon. It seems that Mr. Dunn is Florida's latest version of George Zimmerman.
"The confrontation that resulted in the shooting death of 17-year-old Jordan Russell Davis started over loud music, according to investigators in Brevard County, Florida.
The incident took place Friday outside a convenience store in Jacksonville, where Davis and four of his friends were hanging out inside a parked SVU.
Lt. Rob Schoonover of the Jacksonville Sheriff's Department said 45-year-old Michael David Dunn and his girlfriend, both in town for Dunn's son's wedding, pulled up and asked the teens to turn down the music in their car.
Investigators reported that words were exchanged between Davis and Dunn, but did not elaborate.
The confrontation ended after Dunn, a gun collector, pulled out a weapon and fired at least eight shots at the SUV, striking Davis twice.
None of the vehicle's other occupants were injured.
Dunn's girlfriend, who was in the store buying wine at the time, returned to the car having heard a "popping" sound, and the two bolted from the scene. The unnamed woman told investigators Dunn admitted he "fired at these kids," but claims they were not aware someone had died until hearing it on the news.
Dunn, a Satellite Beach resident, was arrested Saturday at his home on charges of murder and attempted murder. He was booked into Brevard County jail, where he is being held without bail.
He is expected to be returned to Jacksonville shortly after pleading not guilty through his attorney Robin Lemonidis.
"It will be very clear that Mr. Dunn acted very responsibly and as any responsible firearms owner would have acted under these circumstances" [Source]
I smell a stand-your-ground defense coming.
