Which State officer gave the written authorization to Morrisey? An AG cannot commence or join litigation in the name of the State on his own initiative. This is simply part of the "anti-Obama" agenda that republicans have adopted, instead of honoring their oaths and governing in cooperation with the government they were elected to implement. Morrissey is a Wing Nut and is using the state AG. seat as a platform to promote idiocy and hate!! Earlier this week he says he intends to send our President a letter putting him on notice!! That says it all right there!!

Oh geez never mind the constitution it's all about OBAMA. Liberal logic at its best. The constitution when written was about all stats keeping a line for them all to tow and to be able to pressure those who wouldn't abide by it. Give it up this has nothing to do with OBAmA himself.

Actually, Mr. Denver, the Attorney General is an elected constitutional officer, with the athority to take any action he desires which he believes could benefit the citizens of West Virginia. There is no "officer" that tells him what he can and can't do. He is a member of the West Virginia Board of Public Works and can pretty much do as he pleases.
