Republican Attorney General Launches Multiple Investigations on First Day in Office

(TargetLiberty.org) – Virginia’s new attorney general has hit the ground running. On his first day in office, he announced a series of investigations into issues that were concerning Virginians under the previous administration.

On January 15, Virginia’s new Republican governor and attorney general took office, and neither of them wasted any time in getting to grips with their jobs. Attorney General Jason Miyares immediately announced investigations into Loudoun County Public Schools and the Virginia Parole Board, both issues that have caused serious concern in the state.

Loudoun County hit headlines nationally when the school board allegedly covered up a rape to help it push through a new policy on transgender students. The assault happened in a school restroom, and the same student – who claimed to be “gender fluid” – was allegedly able to go on and rape another girl after the school board ruled students could use any restroom based on how they “identified” themselves. Now, Miyares wants to find out exactly what happened.

Miyares also wants to know why the state parole board released serious criminals, including murderers and rapists, without informing their victims – which they were legally required to do. Miyares told reporters the investigations aren’t aimed at pinning criminal charges on anyone; the goal is to learn what mistakes were made and make sure they don’t happen again. He said, “Virginians deserve answers – they want transparency and accountability.”

It seems he and Governor Glenn Youngkin (R) are determined to make sure they get them.
