Cuccinelli Backed Anti-Adultery Laws

Virginia gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli (R) "once suggested that society would benefit from enforcing anti-adultery laws," Politico reports.

"Speaking to Richmond's Style Weekly magazine back in 2008, Cuccinelli defended laws criminalizing extramarital sex, saying that such restrictions 'ought to stay on the books.' "Frankly it wouldn't hurt to enforce them more," Cuccinelli is quoted saying. The magazine paraphrased Cuccinelli drawing a comparison to 'perjury inasmuch as the occasional prosecution or two would get people thinking twice.'"
