VA Gov. Bob McDonnell Won’t Let Some Democrat Force Him To Let Gays Adopt Kids

Virginia’s Gov. Bob McDonnell isn’t ready to give up the state’s ban on gay parents adopting children. The man who believes his word will magically keep LGBTs safe in the workplace has decided he doesn’t want to take the advice of his Democratic predecessor (ex-Gov. Tim Kaine, who went on to chair the DNC and will now run for U.S. Senate) who proposed changing the state’s discriminatory adoption laws. “I know I had said during the campaign that I would essentially keep our adoption laws — which I think are good — the way they are now,” says McDonnell, who had until April 16 to act on Kaine’s proposed changes. “I think the current regulations that are in place seem to be working well.”
