John Suthers says Stan Garnett takes contributions from lawyers with cases before Attorney General
Stan Garnett, the Democrat who is challenging John Suthers, the Republican Attorney General in Colorado, has taken campaign contributions from lawyers who have cases before the Attorney General's office, Suthers charged in a debate, reports Felisa Cardona. The debate will be aired on Channel 9 on Sunday.
Garnett obviously is a strong Obama Democrat who would represent Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Obama, not the majority of Colorado voters who want to see ObamaCare repealed. He reportedly asserted:
Suthers has joined a suit opposing the health care bill and the federal government's ability to tax people who decide not to purchase health insurance under the plan.
Garnett said Suthers entered the lawsuit only for political reasons and called him the "attorney general of the Tea Party."
"The real issue is what is the role of the attorney general?" Garnett said. "This is an effort of the Republican party to blow up the health care plan that took so long to bring together. John shouldn't be doing it. When I am attorney general, I will dismiss Colorado from the lawsuit."
But Suthers said the lawsuit was necessary to protect Coloradans from what he believes in an unfair federal mandate.
