In 2010, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli led a witch-hunt against respected climate scientist Michael Mann, simply because he didn't like his academic conclusions. He subpoenaed thousands of Professor Mann's emails from his time at the University of Virginia -- a gross and unnecessary overreach of his role as Attorney General.
Even the Virginia Supreme Court agreed, and ruled that Cuccinelli did not have the authority to subpoena the University of Virginia for Professor Mann's work.
See, politicians really have no business investigating scientific research they don't agree with. That's why Virginia needs a governor who believes academic research should be protected from government interference.
