Ken Cuccinelli Once Compared Immigration Policy To Pest Control, Exterminating Rats

By Nick Wing



Virginia attorney general and GOP gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli told Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) in 2012 that he was a huge fan, and now it turns out that the two share a knack for drawing controversial comparisons when it comes to immigration policy.

Cuccinelli made his strange remark during a radio interview in 2012. Speaking on the conservative radio show “The Morning Majority,” the attorney general launched into a critique of Washington, D.C.’s pest control policies, which he claimed protected rats from being killed.



.....
“They have to relocate the rats. And, not only that, that’s actually not the worst part, they cannot break up the families of the rats!” Cuccinelli said, incorrectly suggesting that the District’s 2010 Wildlife Protection Act forced pest control specialists to dump them across the river in Virginia.

Cuccinelli then made his comparison.

“So, anyway, it is worse than our immigration policy,” he said. “You can’t break up rat families. Or raccoons, and all the rest, and you can’t even kill ‘em. It’s unbelievable.”

It’s unclear what Cuccinelli meant by that — perhaps that he believes the nation’s immigration policy is better because it allows for immigrant families to be broken up — but the comments come to light as the gubernatorial candidate attempts to finesse his position on immigration reform. In the past week, he’s expressed positions that make him sound like both a moderate and a hardliner on the issue, depending on the audience.

3. His grandfather:

To the best of our knowledge and according to at least one birth certificate in his possession, 100 years ago on 1/11/11 a Dominick Luigi Cuccinelli was born to parents Dominick and Fortuna Cuccinelli. The youngest of a large family he was known at one time or other by the following names: Dominick, Dom, Little Fido, Migs, Miggs, Dad, and Grandpa. On January 27, 1934 he married Josephine Policastro. It was a wedding that was predicted to fail but lasted over 60 years. They have had 2 children, 5 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren. Their progeny are all growing in grace and wisdom on a daily basis. This is their greatest legacy. ...

So today our family will raise a glass to Dominick... Conceived in Italy, and born 100 years ago in Hoboken NJ in a home on Jackson Avenue....I know he's smiling down on all he wrought. ...

Happy birthday Grandpa.

Sincerely,

Ken Cuccinelli, II
Attorney General of Virginia

5. Cuccinelli has an amazing ability to continuously fall upward.

Which proves that spouting the party line guarantees a person employment. It's the ultimate form of wingnut welfare.
