Washington Examiner: Eric Schneiderman Promotes Himself Rather Than Justice

Peter Roff has a devastating piece on New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman in the Washington Examiner today. He also notes the role of 11 Republican attorneys general in pushing back against Schneiderman’s politicization of his office.

“Eric Schneiderman’s actions are what happens when an attorney general is more interested in politics than the rule of law,” said RAGA Executive Director Scott Will. “His abuse of the important powers of his office damages the public’s confidence in our judicial system.”

From the article:

“The responsibility for evenhanded application of the law falls especially heavy on state attorneys general more than most other elected officials because of the enormous resources at their disposal. Unlike even a local, big city district attorney, an elected attorney general has nearly unlimited power and authority to bring cases of his or her own choosing.

Schneiderman, unfortunately, has used those powers to pursue a political agenda above and beyond the requirements of his office in furtherance of his own career…
