McDonnell throws Cuccinelli under the bus

Reversing his own previous position when he was Attorney General and specifically disregarding the advice of Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, Governor Bob McDonnell has issued an executive order forbidding discrimination of any kind in his administration and specifically naming sexual orientation as a class that cannot be discriminated against.
A huge victory for those who stood up against Cuccinelli's creeping homophobia, especially the Democrats in the State Senate and the VCU students who marched on the state capitol.  Hopefully, those VCU students will remember how powerful they are and will make their voices heard again soon.
