A recently elected Republican will immediately investigate Virginia authorities.
Jason Miyares has already launched inquiries into the Virginia Parole Board and Loudoun County Public Schools.
The incoming attorney general wants to “quickly move” to protect freedoms across the Old Dominion state.
“One of the reasons Virginians get so fed up with government is the lack of transparency—and that is a big issue here,” he said according to Breitbart.
Miyares is concerned parole board members might have unlawfully released convicted criminals without adequately warning the relevant victims.
“The Virginia Parole Board broke the law when they let out murderers, rapists, and cop killers early on their sentences without notifying the victims,” he said according to Fox News. “Loudoun County Public Schools covered up a sexual assault on school grounds for political gain, leading to an additional assault of a young girl.”
The remarks came just hours after Miyares and GOP Gov. Glenn Youngkin were sworn into public office. The pair had made an election promise to uphold basic principles of law and order. They are separately challenging the constitutionality of Joe Biden’s Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) vaccine mandate.
“The Biden administration has resorted to unlawful vaccine mandates that force hardworking Virginians to walk away from their pay checks,” they said in a joint statement shared on Twitter.
“President Biden’s CMS mandate ignores the hospital systems’s long-established policies, designed to keep staff and patients safe, and threatens the tenure of essential medical personnel at a time when staffing shortages threaten the health and safety of Virginians,” they added.
Miyares and Youngkin stressed they support voluntary vaccination against the coronavirus.
“We strongly believe that the federal government cannot impose its will and restrict the freedoms of Americans, and that Virginia is at its best when her people are allowed to make the best decisions for their families or businesses,” they said.
After the Jan. 15th inauguration, @GlennYoungkin and I will quickly move to protect Virginians’ freedoms and challenge President Biden’s unlawful CMS, OSHA, and Head Start Vaccine Mandates. pic.twitter.com/u5t8mwQrLy— Jason Miyares (@JasonMiyaresVA) January 7, 2022
