Anyway, Virginia AG (who happens to be also running for Governor) Ken Cuccinelli was driving along yesterday when…
Cuccinelli was on his way back to Richmond on Friday after a meeting of his Human Trafficking Task Force in Staunton when he and his driver Cory Chenard noticed a semi-truck with a flatbed trailer carrying a heavy load in front of them an awful smelling smoke coming from it’s rear.
“I skipped by the cab back to the back of the truck and sure enough it was still on fire,” he said.
Cuccinelli helped the driver out of the cab of the truck and then went in search of a fire extinguisher. After finding one he instructed Chenard to call for help and he ran to the back of the truck to help the driver put out the flames.
Via @bendomenech. Aside from the roadside assistance, by the way, I’d like to note the human trafficking thing. This is one of Ken Cuccinelli’s issues; as Attorney General he’s been pushing hard against the problem, and presumably will continue to do so as Governor of Virginia. Whatever your opinions are on prostitution itself and its legality, the current situation pretty much encourages various forms of, and let us not be coy about this, slavery. It’s uncomfortable to contemplate that such things still go on in this country, and it’s important that our elected officials do something about it.
