CuccinelliOn February 15, Virginia Attorney General, Ken Cuccinelli, reiterated his opposition to same-sex marriage during an interview with a D.C. television station about his new book according to Washington Blade.

Cuccinelli stated, “Virginians decided this in 2006 that we were going to respect traditional marriage,” he said in response to a question on News Talk with Bruce DePuyt about whether a lesbian couple raising children should receive equal treatment under the lawn during a segment on his new book. “I don’t see that changing anytime soon.”

Cuccinelli, who will likely face former Democratic National Committee Chair Terry McAuliffe in Virginia’s 2013 gubernatorial election, spoke with DePuyt a day after same-sex marriage supporters gathered in Arlington, Charlottesville, Hampton, Richmond and Winchester to rally against the state constitutional ban on nuptials for gays and lesbians that Virginia voters approved in 2006. A Virginia House of Delegates subcommittee last month killed a bill sponsored by state Del. Scott Surovell (D-Fairfax) that would have repealed the Marshall-Newman Amendment.

Texas to the Supreme Court.  Cuccinelli also requested a stay, postponing the Fourth Circuit Court’s decision until after the Supreme Court appeal which would allow the state to uphold his new sodomy law until SCOTUS hears the case.
