VIRGINIA GOV. YOUNGKIN’S DAY-ONE EXECUTIVE ORDERS INCLUDING INVESTIGATION OF LOUDON COUNTY OFFICIALS, CRT BAN

“One of the reasons Virginias get so tired of government is the lack of transparency – and that’s a big issue here,” Miyares wrote. The Virginia Parole Board broke the law when they handed out murders, rapists and police killers early in their sentencing without notifying the victims. Loudoun Country Public Schools covered up a sexual assault on the school grounds for political gain, leading to a further assault on a young girl . “

Loudoun County became a focal point in Youngkin’s gubernatorial race against former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe following the arrest of a 14-year-old male high school student who identifies himself as non-binary, who has been found guilty to rape a female student in a school bathroom. This student was transferred to another school where he allegedly raped another student and that has been the district accused to cover up the crime, which resulted in one of the parents of the alleged victim being arrested at a school board meeting. The abusive student has been placed on the register of sex offenders for life as part of his judge.

In addition to the surveys, Miyares announced about 30 employees that they will no longer be employed at the Attorney General’s office. Virginia State Senator Louise Lucas tweeted that Miyares fired “the entire” civil rights department, which Miyares’ office tells Fox News is not correct.

“This is incorrect information,” Miyare spokeswoman Victoria LaCivita said. “There are 12 people working in the Office of Civil Rights – only two staff changes were made.”

“During the campaign, it was made clear that now the elected public prosecutor Miyares and Minister of Justice Sylt have very different visions for the office,” LaCivita told Richmond.com. “We are restructuring the office, as all incoming AGs have done in the past.”
