Cuccinelli, who has lost most of the major legal cases he has brought since taking office in 2010, told the host she was “preaching to the choir.”
On WMAL radio, hosts Brian Wilson and Cheri Jacobus pressed Cuccinelli about why he has not opened a major investigation into what they suggested was wide-spread voter fraud in Virginia — an assessment they made based on receiving unproven allegations by email from listeners. Studies have shown Americans are more likely to be struck by lightning than to commit voter fraud. Cuccinelli endorsed the idea of such investigations, but noted that he lacks the statutory authority to do launch an investigation…
Surely this mathematical mystery has nothing to do with the fact that ‘voter ID’ laws are universally aimed at preventing ‘the wrong kind of people’ (i.e., Democrats) from voting at all.

If only because so many of the Very Serious People, National Bloviators Division, own property in Virginia or go to dinner parties with the people who do…
