As I reported last week, Democratic gubernatorial candidate has sent a letter to the families of victims of the April 16 shootings saying he favors a complete investigation into Cho’s mental health records and would involve the Governor’s Review Panel.
This, a statement criticizing the policy of Democratic governor Tim Kaine was not echoed by the Republican gubernatorial candidate, Bob McDonnell.
McDonnell, the attorney general under Kaine before resigning to pursue the governor race, issued a statement through spokesperson J. Tucker Martin.
“Bob McDonnell favors full and fair disclosure of all information relating to the tragedy at Virginia Tech. As Attorney General he worked closely with the Governor, families and investigators on this issue. With litigation still pending it would not be appropriate for him to comment further on the investigation, and he defers to the governor and attorney general on all decisions regarding the matter. His thoughts and prayers remain with all those impacted by this tragic day in our history.”
Families and university personnel have until Aug. 19 to submit possible corrections for the Governor Review Panel’s report. Corrections will be compiled by private information systems company TriData. Zc
