Mark L. Cole (born June 6, 1958, in Louisville, Kentucky) is an American politician of the Republican Party. Since 2002 he has been a member of the Virginia House of Delegates. He currently represents the 88th district in the Virginia Piedmont, made up of parts of Fauquier, Spotsylvania and Stafford Counties.

Controversy

Cole was criticized in February 2010 for comments made by him about his sponsorship of a bill in the House of Delegates which would ban implantation of microchips into humans by their employers:

Rob Boston of Americans United for Separation of Church and State said of this on MSNBC that "the sort of paranoid strain of thinking among these folks just—it advances to meet the new technology that we have."[1]
