The grandstanding continues. In a completely unsurprising development, anti-gay ideologue Delegate Bob “Virginia’s Chief Homophobe” Marshall has requested an opinion from anti-gay ideologue AG Ken Cuccinelli on the Board of Supervisor’s amendment to our county Equal Employment Opportunity policy. Mr. Cuccinelli can issue whatever political opinion he wishes; it won’t change the reality of the law.
Besides, the more that Mr. Delgaudio, Mr. Marshall, and their foul-mouthed shock troops say about our community, the stronger the case becomes that the amendment was absolutely necessary. Please, keep talking.

Del. Bob Marshall (R-south-central Loudoun) is challenging the legality of a recent decision by Loudoun supervisors to include language in the county’s employment policy forbidding discrimination against homosexual and transgender individuals.
Marshall has asked state Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli for an opinion on whether the county Board of Supervisors had the authority to vote on such an issue.
Local government, under Dillon’s Rule, are allowed to do only what the state allows them to do, he said.
Meanwhile, the crew at Too Conservative continues its marathon session of insisting that “nobody cares about this.” Too funny.
