Impartiality?

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that critics are starting to question whether Attorney General Peg Lautenschlager can be impartial in the suit the ACLU filed against the State trying to force the State to allow domestic partner benefits. Paul spoke on this same topic last week on the Charlie Sykes show. Everyone in professional life has personal opinions that must be set aside at times. But the difference here is that 1, Lautenschlager spoke at a rally right after the plaintiffs in the very same case had advocated for the benefits and her comments intimated support for their stance and 2, Lautenschlager has already demonstrated that she is not vigorously on the side of the State by agreeing with the plaintiff ACLU that the Legislature (the People's Representative) has no right to intervene in the case to make its opinion known.
