Let the Brewer/Goddard games begin!
by David Safier
It may not rank up there with March madness, and it'll take much longer to see who ends up with the most points on the Gubernatorial scoreboard (if the two decide to play in the tournament), but it looks like the Brewer/Goddard rivalry is beginning to go public.
The Arizona ELL controversy is at the Supreme Court, waiting for a hearing. Brewer wants Goddard
to "lend his support to the private lawyers hired by Horne and the Republican legislative leaders." One of those private lawyers, by the way, is Ken Starr of Clinton Special Prosecutor fame (Nine hundred bucks an hour, but cheap at the price if he can keep us from spending more money on those kids who refuse to speak English like real Americans [Sarcasm alert, for anyone new to the blog who thinks I'm an English Only guy.]).
Goddard, who has previously argued against asking the Supreme Court to step into the case, declined this week to comply with Brewer's request.
In a letter dated Monday, the attorney general said that it was his job, not Brewer's job, to direct the legal decisions for the state, and that his clients are Arizona and the State Board of Education, rather than Brewer, Horne or the Republican lawmakers.
