Cuccinelli subpoena of U-Va. records fails

By Rosalind S. Helderman

An Albemarle County Circuit Court judge has set aside a subpoena issued by Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli to the University of Virginia seeking documents related to the work of climate scientist and former university professor Michael Mann.

Judge Paul M. Peatross Jr. ruled that Cuccinelli can investigate whether fraud has occurred in university grants, as the attorney general contended, but ruled that Cuccinelli's subpoena failed to state a "reason to believe" that Mann had committed fraud.

As I figured. It was just a fishing expedition by Kooky.

Do VA citizens get a tax rebate for all of the tax waste and abuse by KOO+KOO-NELLI?!

He really is failing to do his job. And his legal acumen is now suspect.

Sadly, this is precisely what I thought would happen.

From my perspective, there are too many big fish like Al Gore and the Clintons swimming around in this issue for the heavy power not to hide the truth.

Cuccinelli was right to subpoena the documents and right to approach the efforts of Mike Mann as fraud, in my opinion.

There is too much money to be taken from taxpayers and shoveled into moronic cap-and-trade systems making the likes of Gore richer, so far as I can see.

Well, all you left-wingers, think about how much of your money and everybody else's is about to be sucked out of your wallet.
