Cuccinelli Says He's Exempt from Public Records Laws

Virginia Attorney Gen. Ken Cuccinelli (R) "has asserted that the state's freedom of information laws do not apply to the Office of the Attorney General, a break from past practice," the Washington Post reports.

"While Cuccinelli's office has continued to respond to requests for documents under the law -- which says that except in certain instances, all records of public bodies should be accessible to the public -- it has begun to insert new language into its responses citing a 2011 Virginia Supreme Court case to support the claim that the law does not apply to the office."
