Cuccinelli on Star Scientific scandal: ‘The governor knows things about that situation that the rest of us don’t.’

During an interview for Post TV's "In Play" show, I asked Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli (R) if the man he is seeking to replace, Gov. Bob McDonnell (R), should have resigned his office amid a scandal over his relationship with a major donor named Jonnie Williams.

"The governor knows things about that situation that the rest of us don't," said Cuccinelli. "I've had the conversation with him about the subject....I've been part of this process so I think there is a respect for my own office that demands that I not push too hard in what are several official investigations going on right now. "

The full conversation is below.
