AG Spokesman: Report on Virginia Attorney General False

BUT WAS IT A PROFESSIONAL RESPONSE?

by Sharon Rondeau

The Commonwealth of Virginia’s Attorney General is described on its website as “the Commonwealth’s law firm.”

(Feb. 7, 2013) — On Thursday morning, The Post & Email was made aware of an article published at a website called Newsdoors.com which stated that “A stunning Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) report on current legislative actions being considered and/or proposed by the individual States in America states that Virginia appears to be close to executing a warrant against President Barack Obama for the crime of “capital murder…”

The Post & Email called the office of Virginia Attorney General Kenneth Cuccinelli, identified itself as media and was directed to the voice mail of media spokesman Brian Gottstein.  His voice mail indicated that he would like to communicate via email and divulged his email address.  We then sent the following message:

From: Sharon Rondeau
To: Gottstein, Brian J.
Sent: Thu Feb 07 11:25:49 2013
Subject: “REPORT” RE:  CHARGES AGAINST OBAMA

Hello, I run an electronic newspaper and am inquiring if the following report, claiming that AG Cuccinelli is planning on charging Barack Hussein Obama with crimes, is accurate:  http://newsdoors.blogspot.com/2013/02/virginia-set-to-charge-obama-with-death.html

The first paragraph reads:

“A stunning Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA <http://government.ru/eng/power/92/> ) report on current legislative actions being considered and/or proposed by the individual States in America states that Virginia appears to be close to executing a warrant against President Barack Obama for the crime of “capital murder” which carries the death penalty.”

The story has been reproduced in part here:  http://giveusliberty1776.blogspot.com/2013/02/a-stunning-ministry-of-foreign-affairs.html

and perhaps other places; I am not sure.

Could I obtain a statement from you on this?

Thank you.

to which Gottstein apparently responded:

Are you kidding me?

It’s a totally bogus story somebody wrote from their basement computer.

The email did not contain an electronic signature, title, contact information and government website identification normally found in communications with government agency personnel encountered routinely by this writer.

The following warning then appeared in our email account:

The Post & Email then responded:

I am not kidding.  I felt it was a serious issue to bring it to your attention.  I would think it is something that you would want to know about.  I have followed proper protocol in letting you know.

to which Gottstein apparently responded:

Thank you for letting me know.

The same warning message appeared at the top of the email.

The first several lines of the email source data reads:
