Cuccinelli Puts His Money Where His Ear Is

Amy Gardner

Ken Cuccinelli, the Republican candidate for attorney general, sure does like his property rights.

He's even willing to give up his cell phone to make the point.

Cuccinelli switched cell phone companies this week after learning that Verizon, his previous carrier, was supporting Democratic opponent Steve Shannon. Verizon and Cuccinelli have a history of disagreeing over how much power the company should have to lay cable across private property.

"They have always been strongly outspoken because of my position," Cuccinelli said. "They have to be respectful to everybody else in the process and that includes the property owner whose land they want to cross, and that's an inconvenience for them."

"People don't support me, I'm not going to support them."

Cuccinelli was speaking, incidentally, on his new Sprint telephone.
