Cuccinelli again explains his advice to colleges on gay policies
Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli wrote an op-ed in the Richmond Times Dispatch today to explain why he advised Virginia colleges and universities they should remove language dealing with sexual orientation from campus anti-discrimination policies.
Cuccinelli, who attended the University of Virginia, writes that he thinks that no one should be discriminated against but maintains only the General Assembly can create "a specially protected class.''
"A public university simply lacks the power to create a new specially protected class under Virginia law,'' he writes.
