And This Is Why Elections Matter

Can you see this happening in a Terry McAuliffe administration? Me neither.

Virginia Attorney General-Elect to Investigate Sexual Assaults in Loudoun (dailysignal.com)

Miyares also said he plans to push for legislation, which was discussed on the campaign trail, that allows his office to take over when chief law enforcement officers think the state’s prosecutors are not sufficiently doing their job.

Miyares added his support for “a bill that would essentially say if the chief law enforcement officer in a jurisdiction, either the chief of police or the sheriff, makes a request, because the commonwealth’s attorney is not doing their job, then I’m going to do their job for them.”

More, he clarified that he is thinking “specifically” about “some of the so-called social justice commonwealth attorneys” who have been elected “particularly in Northern Virginia.”

Miyares said Virginia has seen some “pretty horrific cases” that have been made public where state prosecutors have failed to do their job. He said that he wants to bring victims back to the forefront of the process based on his own experience as a prosecutor.

Nice. I think it also means that I’ll have more to blog about in Loudoun county.
