    not willing to work for the worst of the worst?  Isn't that sort of their job? No matter what they've done they are entitled to legal counsel? And the office they tried to politicize were the AG offices.  This is a state atty job that is different from those.  I think that's what this diarist was trying to point out.

    I don't know if this is a horrible appt or not. It appears the Dems in UT don't know much about him either.  But I do know it does make me somewhat uncomfortable to read comments that have whispers of vetting people based on their political affiliations because that is what Bush Admin was doing that we denounced.

    But we want to get to the same place. We just disagree on the how. --mmacdDE

      not public ones. Certainly a private attorney is free to chase whatever client he wants and for whatever fee he demands. In public service the pay is less so the payoff is doing your job well for justice you can believe in. The law is very malleable.
