McAuliffe Spox Hits Cuccinelli Over Sodomy Case Petition

Terry McAuliffe’s campaign on Wednesday called Republican opponent Ken Cuccinelli’s petition over the state’s sodomy law part of the attorney general’s “divisive ideological agenda.”

“This is just another example of Ken Cuccinelli ignoring the economy and instead focusing on his divisive ideological agenda,” McAuliffe spokesman Josh Schwerin said in a statement to TPM.

Cuccinelli, who is up against McAuliffe in this year’s Virginia gubernatorial race, asked the 4th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals to review a three-judge panel decision that struck down the state’s anti-sodomy law as unconstitutional.
