Republican AG Vows Objective Review of Petitions

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Republican Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli is promising an objective review of the petitions submitted by Virgil Goode to get on Virginia's ballot as the Constitution Party's presidential candidate.

The State Board of Elections asked for the review after the state GOP alleged irregularities in Goode's qualifying petitions. The conservative former congressman's inclusion on the ballot threatens to drain some votes from Republican Mitt Romney in Virginia, a crucial swing state.

Cuccinelli has campaigned for Romney, but he tells the Richmond Times-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/P48UIs ) that the review by his office will be based on the law, not politics.
