As for Virginia Attorney General, Ken Cuccinelli, he's still focused on bringing down Climate Change researcher Michael Mann, who doesn't even work at the University of Virginia anymore. Cuccinelli's "Climate Change Inquisition" has prompted several legislators in the Virginia General Assembly (albeit, Democratic Legislators) to introduce a bill to reign-in Cuccinelli so that he actually does his job.
Definitely a contrast in, should we say, styles. Makes you wonder if Cuccinelli understands that the job of the Attorney General is to prosecute actual criminals, not persecute those who don't think like you.
K Street in Washington, D.C. is home to a large number of corporate and industry financed Think Tanks and powerful Lobbying Firms. It's the center of political power and influence in our country. Concerned about the disproportionate influence that special interest have on public policy at the Federal, State, and Local levels of government, Off K Street began as a personal blog to highlight the disconnect between the political powerbrokers in our nation's capital and state legislatures and the public at-large.
Off K Street aspires to be an alternative information source that is responsible and intellectually honest by promoting a spirited, but civil, conversation across a diverse range of communities. This will entail an investigative and analytical approach to a wide range of issues, with a mixture of citizen journalism and commentary.
Off K Street will strive to hold all sides of an issue accountable for their positions and statements, and will agressively challenge the misinformation, misconceptions, and fear perpetrated by individuals and institutions with extremist political agendas outside the mainstream that promote intolerance and marginalization.
I welcome ideas or suggetions for topics of discussion. I also encourage lively, but respectful, debate and discussion.
