GOP Atty General Cuccinelli is worried that you’re having butt sex, wants to criminalize sodomy again

While feigning concern for children, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, who is running for Governor as a Republican, filed an appeal Tuesday to the U.S. Supreme Court aimed at preserving Virginia’s anti-sodomy law.

Cuccinelli argued that if the law is overturned nearly 90 people convicted of sex crimes involving minors could qualify to have their names erased from the state’s sex offender registry, TPM reports.

Via Talking Points Memo:

Back in March, a panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Virginia’s “crimes against nature law,” which says oral and anal sex is illegal, is unconstitutional. The law, according to Cuccinelli, led to a 47-year-old man’s conviction of criminal solicitation for allegedly demanding oral sex from a 17-year-old girl.

“This has nothing to do with sexual orientation or private acts between consenting adults. In fact, the law can’t be used for those purposes,” Cuccinelli said in a statement. “The Fourth Circuit’s decision threatens to undo convictions of child predators that were obtained under this law after 2003. It also takes away an important tool that prosecutors use to put child molesters in jail. This has very real implications for public safety.”

Meanwhile in April:

Among the judges that chose not to approve a rehearing was Judge Albert Diaz, who wrote the dissent in the three-judge panel’s 2-1 ruling declaring Virginia’s “Crimes Against Nature” statute unconstitutional. The statute classifies sodomy between consenting adults, gay or straight, as a crime.

This is rather amusing considering E.W. Jackson is on his ticket and has displayed homophobia recently and in the past.

    I can’t believe that the voters of Virginia actually pay a mouthpiece whose only concern has to do with sex positions. Astounding when you realize how many of our presidents came from this state. Amazing when you realize that so many of the governor’s administration and legislature are truly perverted.

    Virginia is for lovers – that is their marketing line – only to be lovers in Virginia, it has to be between a married man and woman (to each other) in the standard missionary position, for procreation purposes only and the woman can’t enjoy it. Another state with a state government trying to prove they can devolve to Neanderthal in the 21st century
