Virginia’s Attorney General Faces Scrutiny for Ties to Executive

    He first bought the tiny company's stock after bunking down in its chief executive's six-bedroom home.
    He added to his holdings soon after the rollout of a new product that the company hinted could be a cure for Alzheimer's disease.
    As the stock reached a 52-week high last year, he sold part of his portfolio for a $4,000 profit.
    Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II, Virginia's attorney general, said that the timing of his ownership of Star Scientific shares reflected nothing more than his own investment analysis.
    For a relative novice at stock picking, Mr. Cuccinelli's investment in Star Scientific was highly unusual. It is a thinly traded stock in a company that has lost money for a decade. It stayed afloat by selling stock at a discount in "private placements" to large investors, whose hopes were repeatedly raised by company promotions about big payoffs.

    Do you deny the reality that this is shady ?

    Perhaps if he is corrupt enough he might qualify for the obama administration? You have to be a tax cheat to get nominated.

    No.  There are other lines too.  Cooch’s anti-science background ought to be enough to bury him practically regardless of who the opponent is.  We are not in Kansas and don’t wish to be.

    This is you deflecting from answering the question, as usual.

    Answer it.

    The “two wrongs make a right” defense is really working, Steve. Keep it up.

    The Cooch lost me when he covered the breast of the woman that is on the seal of the Commonwealth. If the woman on the seal of the state you work for makes you randy, perhaps you shouldn’t be in the job.

    Anti science? Coming from a liberal that’s hilarious.

     

    Keep on trying guys. Maybe you can try to get him removed from office when Mcauliffe loses badly?

     

    Cry. Liberal tears are delicious.

    Depending on how McDonnell’s scandals break, maybe he will get removed from office before the election.

    “Anti science? Coming from a liberal that's hilarious.”

    1. Conservatives have clearly cornered the anti-science market.

    2. You are STILL deflecting.

    Answer the question.

    The seal is also on our flag – does that mean he defaced the flag?

    The Cucinelli scandal expecially with the Gov’s chef’s trial starting three weeks before election is sure to hurt the Cooch. And now, Cooch has his own problems to deal with. This scandal plus Cooch’s wacko running mate is not good news for the Republican party. McAulifee may have issues of his own, but compared to the Republican’s problems, they are relatively minor.

    @NS, is your instinctive “slam a Democrat” response the best you can do? If so, you might consider “retro-neuro” therapy. Otherwise, your responses demean your audience.

    It’s his Pavlovian response to anything “Dem”

    Yes, but does he also salivate?
