Special election for Cuccinelli's seat set for Jan. 12

Rosalind Helderman

Gov. Tim Kaine's office reports that it has now received a copy of a letter from Sen. Ken Cuccinelli, indicating that he will resign from the state Senate on Jan. 12, in preparation for his inauguration as state attorney general Jan. 16.

Kaine plans to call the special election to fill Cuccinelli's Fairfax County seat for that same day, said Kaine spokesman Gordon Hickey.

Cuccinelli, meanwhile, met with the entire staff of the attorney general's office this week, telling attorneys and others in a 15-minute speech that he respects their work and looks forward to working with them. All employees of the AG's office formally work at the pleasure of the sitting attorney general. It is not yet clear how many of the office's staff Cuccinelli plans to keep on.

Virginia will have a man for Attorney General who is committed to his intolerant ideology of social conservatism. It's unfortunate that Cuccinelli will be Attorney General because he's wildly intolerant. Cuccinelli's seat in Fairfax county should be won by a liberal Democrat to ensure that liberty won't be eroded as much because Cuccinelli will unfortunately be Attorney General for Virginia.
