‘The View’ Tears Apart Ken Cuccinelli’s Anti-Sodomy Law: ‘What Ever Happened To Virginia Is For Lovers?’

The hosts of The View turned their attention to Virginia’s Republican gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli, after reigniting a push to reinstate the state’s Crimes Against Nature law on Monday, a measure that would make felons out of consenting married couples who engage in oral or anal sex in the privacy of their own homes. “What happened to the slogan ‘Virgina Is For Lovers?,’” asked Barbara Walters.

All four of The View‘s co-hosts were unanimously opposed to Cuccinelli’s proposal. “First of all, how do I know that you haven’t indulged?” said co-host Whoopi Goldberg.

“The second thing is: Why are you in my bedroom? Get out! Get out!” Speaking directly to the candidate, she stated, “Sir, you are not going to become governor you stay on this track. I’m gonna make sure your behind doesn’t become governor.”


According to Think Progress:

The act was struck down by federal courts after Cuccinelli blocked efforts to bring it in line with the Supreme Court’s 2003 Lawrence v. Texas ruling.

“Michael Douglas better stay out of Virginia,” co-host Joy Behar teased, referring to the actor’s claim that he developed throat cancer from performing oral sex. She later joked, “he wants the government on my back and my husband off of it” as the other hosts piled on.
