STATEMENT OF ATTORNEY GENERAL HERRING

~ On the Supreme Court of Virginia's rejection of legislators' contempt motion against Governor McAuliffe over the restoration of rights ~

RICHMOND (September 15, 2016) -- Attorney General Herring issued the following statement after the Supreme Court of Virginia rejected legislators' motion to hold Governor McAuliffe in contempt for his efforts to restore Virginians' voting rights:

"This contempt motion was completely baseless and I'm glad the Supreme Court dispatched it so quickly. Governor McAuliffe is doing the right thing in giving these Virginians back their voice and their vote and I hope the legislature will join the effort."
