Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli (R) is scheduled to speak at the George Mason University School of Law in Clarendon this evening, but he’ll be getting a not-so-welcome reception from local Democratic lawmakers, gay rights supporters and some GMU student leaders.
Cuccinelli has drawn fire from Democrats for his letter to state universities asserting that anti-discrimination policies for sexual orientation were not supported by state law. More recently, Cuccinelli has been assailed for his effort to block the recently-passed health care reform bill.
A protest, organized on Facebook, is scheduled to take place between 4:00 and 8:00 p.m. tonight outside the GMU law school building (3301 Fairfax Drive). State delegate Adam Ebbin (D) and Arlington County Board Chairman Jay Fisette are among the expected speakers.
The protest is “specifically in response to [Cuccinelli’s] opinion letter to the Presidents, Rectors and Visitors of Virginia’s Public Colleges and Universities urging them to delete sexual orientation from their nondiscrimination policies,” organizers say.
