At age 34, two years before his first election and two decades before he would run for governor of Virginia, Robert F. McDonnell submitted a master's thesis to the evangelical school he was attending in Virginia Beach in which he described working women and feminists as "detrimental" to the family. He said government policy should favor married couples over "cohabitators, homosexuals or fornicators." He described as "illogical" a 1972 Supreme Court decision legalizing the use of contraception by unmarried couples.I think something worth noting is that when Washington Post reporters questioned him about his extreme positions, McDonnell responded by saying "I wrote as a student during the Reagan era and haven't thought about in years." However, the plain and simple fact is that he was the one that originally brought the thesis up which proves that he has indeed been doing some thinking about the paper. In other words, he even recognizes the fact that he should probably spread some misinformation about the thesis if he wants to be elected governor.
If we can't trust him to be honest about his academic work and can't trust him to be honest about his career as an elected official (which you can see more about here), can we really trust Bob McDonnell to be the next governor of our fine Commonwealth?
