Central VA Democrats Snub Cuccinelli’s Pool Excerpt

Posted: Updated:

The latest attack against Ken Cuccinelli came in tongue-in-cheek form, but with a serious message. The setting seemed more like one you'd find at a barbecue or summer get-together, but Democrats were actually poolside as they claimed Cuccinelli opposes public pools and recreation.

At Charlottesville's Onesty Family Aquatic Center, Democratic leaders showed up to celebrate the opening of the area's public pools.

House Democratic Leader David Toscano and Charlottesville Democratic Chair Jim Nix both said Cuccinelli, in his recent book "The Last Line of Defense," speaks out against pools supported with government funds.

"He takes a position that public pools are somehow a threat to liberty. Public pools are a great community resource. There are a lot of examples of Ken Cuccinelli's extreme views of Virginia, whether it has to do with public pools and the possible privatization of them or extreme views of women's rights," said David Toscano, Virginia House Democratic leader.

Toscano said another example of Cuccinelli's skewed views is his failure to support the transportation bill. Both representatives said that, as pool season continues, more of Cuccinelli's extreme views will become apparent to the public.
