Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli Launches New Website Claiming Sodomy Laws Must Be Reinstated To Stop Pedophiles

Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli has doubled down in his private battle to restore anti-sodomy laws to Virginia with the launch of a new website Keep Virginia Kids Safe, found at the charming web address, vachildpredators.com. The website equates sodomy and pedophilia, claiming 90 child predators who were convicted under the statute will be set free if the Supreme Court does not restore Virginia’s Crimes Against Nature Law:

18.2-361. Crimes against nature; penalty.

If any person carnally knows in any manner any brute animal, or carnally knows any male or female person by the anus or by or with the mouth, or voluntarily submits to such carnal knowledge, he or she shall be guilty of a Class 6 felony.

When the Supreme Court handed down their decision in Lawrence V Texas in 2003, overturning Texas’ anti-sodomy laws, the Virginia legislature recognized their Crimes Against Nature statute was unconstitutional, and tried to bring it into compliance by adding a consenting adults exception. Newly elected State Senator Ken Cuccinelli led the resistance and killed the changes in committee, so all these years, the law has remained on the books. For more than a decade now, Mr. Cuccinelli has been scheming to get that law, and the issue of sodomy back in front of the Supreme Court. 

As Attorney General, Cuccinelli  purposefully used the unconstitutional Crimes Against Nature Law he protected as a young state senator, to charge a 47-year-old man who solicited oral sex from a 17-year-old female. He had many other choices, but he chose Virginia’s Crimes Against Nature Statute hoping he could finally put the Lawrence decision back in the spotlight. As expected, a federal appeals court rejected the sodomy charge, and as expected, Cuccinelli filed an appeal to the Supreme Court. The Court refused to grant certiorari, but Cuccinelli still hasn’t given up.

Cuccinelli is running for governor at the moment, and his new website tries to trap his opponent, Democrat Terry McAuliffe, into appearing soft on crime against children. The website claims McAuliffe is unconcerned that 47-year-old man whose case was reversed by the appeals court, will go free if the Supreme Court doesn’t restore Virginia’s ability to make sodomy a crime. Cuccinelli seems to miss the bright neon logic that he himself was guilty of endangering children when he knowingly used an unconstitutional law to prosecute offenders. A responsible prosecutor would have used one of the many Virginia statutes he knew would pass muster, and not purposely have given convicted pedophiles grounds for appeal.

So far, McAuliffe seems to have avoided the trap, saying through a campaign spokesman: 

“Everyone supports strong laws to protect children and, like most Virginians, Terry believes our laws should be updated to both conform with court rulings and allow prosecution of predators.”

The overwhelming majority of pedophiles are HETERO men after little GIRLS! What an ignorant…ugh I can't take this bs anymore

EXACTLY! but on that note, I would like to ask the attorney general if he even knows or can differentiate the difference in definition of either word. (sodomy defined as sexual intercourse involving anal or oral copulation….and paedophile being defined as an ADULT who is sexually attracted to or engages in sexual activity with children)

soooo, mr. attorney general….of these two definitions, WHICH have YOU engaged in or violated? and if Virginian's continue to elect ill informed dolts as himself, then they really have NO ONE but themselves to blame for allowing his never ending ignorance to interfere with their lives.

Rectal chastity belts for everyone!

So how exactly does this sanctimonious ass hat propose to enforce this medieval law? Mandatory spycams in every bedroom and bathroom within every home in Virginia?

How can he convict a man soliciting oral sex with a sodomy law? Is he too daft to know the difference between a bj and fudge packing? If this man gets elected in Virginia, we gays will have to foogie moogie another hurricane to hurl itself at its shores. He wants to see what blows? That'll show him. All those nitwits know that gays cause inclement weather and earthquakes.

I mean, if the people of Virginia are shallow enough to elect another moron to govern their state, perhaps secession would be a great idea for them and other places like that. It would create plenty of job just detouring the highways around that state. What a f**king idiot.

I live in Virginia. I hope and pray we don't elect this turkey as our next governor. And the candidates for Lt; Governor and Attorney General as bad or worse.
Only hope all those voters who came out for Obama last year and helped him carry the state don't stay home from the polls this year. That has been a problem in some election years without a presidential race.
Va has also passed some sort of voter ID law which goes into effect next year. This state has had an illustrious history of voter suppression in the past,and this seems to be a new effort.

This little tin Hitler wants to follow the present "Bribes Welcomed" Governor? Carry me back to Ole Virginny.
