Protecting ChildrenBACK TO THE FACT CENTER
Terry falsely says that Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli wants to ban various form of sex between consenting adults. Further Terry McAuliffe is attempting to turn Attorney General Cuccinelli’s attempts to protect children into a social issue fight.
As Attorney General, Ken Cuccinelli has relentlessly and successfully fought to put sexual predators behind bars. Those who prey on our children have no place walking free in our society.
Unfortunately, Terry McAuliffe and his allies have shamelessly and falsely attacked Attorney General Cuccinelli for defending a law used to put child molesters behind bars. This is a law that is also widely used by Commonwealth’s Attorneys around Virginia to prosecute people who seek to harm children.
Terry McAuliffe knowingly and falsely claimed that this law would be used to prosecute sexual activity between consenting adults. These claims are 100% false and Terry knows it.
The case McAuliffe points to is MacDonald vs. Moose. William Scott McDonald was 47 years old when he was convicted of soliciting oral sex from a minor girl. This was NOT his first offense! He was prosecuted using Virginia’s anti-sodomy law, which is only applied to sex offenses attempted or committed against minors, against non-consenting adults, or in public.
In fact, contrary to misinformation peddled by Terry McAuliffe and his liberal allies, the law is not – and can not – be used against consenting adults acting in private.
Attorney General Cuccinelli will not apologize for fighting to keep sexual predators away from our children. This is a cut and dry instance of Terry McAuliffe and his allies lying about a case to score cheap political points at the expense of our children.
If The Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli does not prevail in defending Virginia’s statute, 90 Sex Offenders Could Be Dropped From The Sex Offender Registry. Terry McAuliffe seems untroubled with this potential outcome so as long as he is able to score cheap political points.
