Cuccinelli’s office says that they’ve simply reverted to an older version of the state seal. And that may be true, but that’s not the whole story. Benton J. Lossing’s An Outline History of the United States, published in 1875, shows the seal of Virginia on page 77. As of 1875, it looked like this:
Our state seal was designed by Richard Henry Lee, George Mason, Edmund Pendleton, and George Wythe between July 1 and July 5, 1776. Sadly, it is not good enough for Ken Cuccinelli these 234 years later.
As you can see, the most faithful rendering of an older version of the state seal would involve showing both of Virtus’ breasts, not neither of them.
