Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) accepted a bill to create a "Trust Women/Respect Choice" license plate, even though he is a Catholic who personally opposes abortion. But McDonnell did propose amending the bill slightly to include language to ensure any money generated from the new plate is not used to "provide abortion services." "The Governor did not veto the specialty license plate bill requested by Planned Parenthood,'' McDonnell spokeswoman Taylor Thornley said. "His amendment to the legislation simply codifies Planned Parenthood's often-stated position that license plate proceeds will not be used for abortion services." In Virginia, the governor can amend all bills. Midnight was the deadline for him to amend, sign or veto bills. The General Assembly will vote on his amendments next week.

New NRA ad for McDonnell

The National Rifle Association is airing new TV ads on behalf of Republican Bob McDonnell that appeal to those who are worried about government intervention. Check it out here: Meanwhile, two Italian American organizations are calling on McDonnell to ask the NRA to o take down a previous TV commericial because of its "offensive characterization of Italian American." "This type of negative imagery reinforces defaming stereotypes about an entire ethnic group and undermines the progress made in ending prejudice against all groups in our country,'' says a joint statement by the Columbus Citizens Foundation and the National Italian American Foundation: "We would hope that gubernatorial candidate Bob McDonnell would appeal to the electorate through substantive policy discussion on issues of importance to the State of Virginia rather than appealing through negative stereotyping."...
