Cuccinelli Drops Verizon
According to the Washington Post Attorney General candidate Ken Cuccinelli switched cell phone companies this week after learning that Verizon was supporting Democratic opponent Steve Shannon.
The reason why Verizon is backing the Democrat? Well, it seems that Cuccinelli and Verizon have of disagreed in the past over how much power the company should have to lay cable across private property.
"They have always been strongly outspoken because of my position," Cuccinelli said. "They have to be respectful to everybody else in the process and that includes the property owner whose land they want to cross, and that's an inconvenience for them."
I too have had my problems with Verizon. I now have another reason to vote for Cuccinelli!
