Pruitt's Political Operations Earn Spotlight | Blue Oklahoma
The glowing profile of Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt published on Monday leaves out a major component about his recent work that concerns his critics. That major component is simply that Pruitt has, along with some other Republican attorneys general throughout the nation, turned his office into an unprecedented political operation to oppose President Barack Obama. All political offices are, well, political, that goes almost without saying, but a state attorney general, even more so than a governor, should stand above political gamesmanship and make accurate and beneficial decisions based on prevailing laws for all constituents, not just supporters.
