A lot of changes are happening in Virginia, and it’s only day 2 of the Youngkin administration.
On day one, the new Virginia Attorney General Jason Miyares fired everyone in the State’s Civil Rights Office and eliminated the entire department.
Richmond.com reported that Attorney General-elect Jason Miyares notified about 30 staff members in the office — 17 of them attorneys — that they won’t have jobs in his administration, including the lawyer who was investigating dangerous conditions at a South Richmond apartment complex in Richmond’s largest Latino neighborhood.
Miyares, a Republican, will be sworn in on Saturday to replace Democratic Attorney General Mark Herring, whom Miyares defeated in the November election.
Miyares spokesperson Victoria LaCivita said the 30 staff members were told that Miyares would be moving in a different direction.
“During the campaign, it was made clear that now Attorney General-elect Miyares and Attorney General Herring have very different visions for the office,” she said by email for this story. “We are restructuring the office, as every incoming AG has done in the past.”
Miyares has also vowed to prosecute criminal cases in jurisdictions where Soros DAs declined to prosecute.
And, if that’s not good enough, he’s already opened investigations into Loudon County Public Schools.
As a candidate, I promised to investigate the scandals at the Virginia Parole Board and Loudoun County Schools.
As Attorney General, I am proud to say that the process has begun and the investigations are officially open. pic.twitter.com/02wvO85wbI

Miyares also showed up on Fox News to discuss the new plans for VA now that it’s under Republican leadership.
These are the exact type of fighters we need on every level – city, state, federal.
This is our time to take it all back and hold on to it.
