I attended yesterday’s press conference held in Norfolk regarding the upcoming constitutional amendment on eminent domain. It is a subject I wrote about in July, but I just touched the basics. Since then, I’ve been trying to understand the issue in order to write about it again, particularly because there are strong feelings on both sides of the issue.
Which is what took me to the press conference yesterday. I listened intently as those who favor the amendment made their case, in particular AG Ken Cuccinelli. For my own edification, I videotaped the press conference for later viewing.* Afterwards, I asked Cuccinelli for a few minutes, as I wanted to hear from him his answers to some things not addressed in his remarks.
Well, you can watch for yourself how that went.
After thinking about this a little more, one word comes to mind: bully.
Remember – this is the guy who wants to be our governor.
* – I have to say that it was difficult listening to Cooch claim that our constitution should protect our rights. Funny – the other amendment he supported did little to protect my rights.
