Cuccinelli Corrects an Injustice

Virginia Attorney General Kenneth Cuccinelli reviewed the evidence and concluded that one Thomas Haynesworth had been wrongly imprisoned–so he persuaded Governor Robert McDonnell to grant him parole. Not a full vindication, because Haynesworth still has a felony record, but freedom. Remarkably, Cuccinelli went still further and added Haynesworth to his staff while promising to work to clear his name and wipe his record clean. David Keene has the full story here.
