All things Cuccinelli

Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli surprised few who have followed his career in politics, when he announced that he will not run for reelection as AG. Writing for the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Jim Nolan reports Cuccinelli has changed his mind and decided to run for governor in 2013. 
[Cuccinelli] called being attorney general "the best job in my life" and said his decision was based on "my love for the commonwealth and to further the principles on which this country was founded."

Cuccinelli, 43, has been campaigning for higher office since the day he was sworn in as the commonwealth's attorney general. Now I suspect he's trying to figure out when will be the best time to quit his current post, ostensibly, to concentrate on his campaign.

Of course, the best time will probably be before too many of the metaphorical chickens from the questionable legal actions Cuccinelli initiated in his first year in office start coming home to roost.  

Here are links to stories I have written about his performance on the job:
