van Hollen Unfit For His Job?

Someone should check to see if AG Goodhair has his own law degree. If he doesn't know that the courts decide on the constitutionality of laws by now, then perhaps he doesn't deserve to be AG.
Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen said today he won’t defend the state
against a lawsuit...

Let's see what he had to say about a different law.
"It's really the job of the legislature to be making those public policy
decisions," Van Hollen explained. "It's not the job of the Dept. of Justice, or
the courts."
Again, he's wrong. But this time in the opposite direction. Even business owners are critical of van Hollen's handling of the Minimum Markup Law.
The gas stations had no indication that "the attorney general was planning
to throw the case—until he did so by failing to appeal," Posner added.
At any rate, if he's not up to upholding the law he's probably not gubernatorial material, either. But if he does decide to run, I offer up this slogan to Fraley, free of charge. "JB van Hollen. He's in the tank already."
