Cuccinelli discloses more gifts from Star Scientific CEO

I mailed my Virginia tax return yesterday. The deadline is next Wednesday. If you decide not to pay any money that you owe and you get caught, you need merely quote the attorney general of the Old Dominion: "I forgot."

Cuccinelli amends disclosure forms

RICHMOND — Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II announced Friday that he had received more gifts from Star Scientific chief executive Jonnie R. Williams Sr. than he had previously reported and that he had asked the Richmond commonwealth’s attorney to review his disclosure filings.

Cuccinelli said he simply forgot to include the gifts when filing the annual disclosure forms that elected officials must submit to the state.

I was so hoping that it would be Tracy Thorne-Begland who got to review the document, but no such luck.

Cuccinelli discloses more gifts from Star Scientific CEO
BY JIM NOLAN Richmond Times-Dispatch Richmond Times-Dispatch

Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli received thousands of dollars more in gifts from Star Scientific CEO Jonnie Williams over the past four years than he originally disclosed, according to amended statements of economic interests the gubernatorial candidate released at a press briefing Friday.

The amended disclosures released Friday also reflect a previously unreported $7,750 trip in 2010 to Southwest Virginia for Cuccinelli and his parents, paid for by Alpha Natural Resources, during which Cuccinelli spoke at an awards ceremony.

Bristol-based Alpha Natural Resources Inc., the nation’s third-largest publicly traded coal producer, acquired Richmond-based Massey Energy Inc. in June 2011.

There was also a $795 trip for Cuccinelli in 2012 to speak at a rally that was paid for by the Federation for American Coal Energy and Security.

Massey Energy? You remember:
