John Adams Statement on JLARC Review of the Attorney General’s Office

RICHMOND – John Adams, the Republican nominee for attorney general, issued the following statement today regarding the Joint Legislative Audit and Review Commission passing a resolution to review the Office of the Attorney General:
“Mark Herring has been attacking me for being a good lawyer and representing my clients. Meanwhile, he continues to - in his own words - be the ‘voice of the resistance' in Virginia and force his progressive agenda on Virginia instead of being our lawyer. The results are predictable, and I am pleased to see that JLARC has noticed. While he has picked and chosen which of our laws to defend, his office was successfully sued in a pay discrimination case, sanctioned by a judge for discovery violations, and took money from human trafficking programs to give pay raises to his political allies in the office. And the Commonwealth pays the price. Virginia desperately needs a new lawyer.”
