How is that defending coal? And who do you think pays for him to run around the state holding town hall meeting, and running down President Obama?

"What has he done to defend coal other than run around the state holding town hall meeting, and running down President Obama?"

What has he done to defend coal other than run around the state holding town hall meeting, and running down President Obama? And "neocurmudgeon74" Google: Employment Opportunities - Office of the West Virginia Attorney General.

Given that so much of our states revenue is derived from coal, the AG has no option but to defend the practice, just as he will in defending fracking and natural gas when conservationist finish with coal and target that fuel source.

I do find it ironic that the poster who made the comment about wasting time and taxpayers money was a staunch supporter of our former AG.

Enough said.

21st Century Americans too seldom recognize the need to go through some short-term pain for long-term gain. No one here is a stronger supporter of finding some way to slash carbon dioxide emissions, & that almost inevitably means burning much less coal. So yes, I would tell Attorney General Morrisey to back off on this battle.

But Attorney General Morrisey is getting a bit of a raw deal in these Comments.

1) He is in fact DOING what he was elected to do. A majority of West Virginia voters still support coal AT ALL COSTS.

2) The "six, 10, 15 or even 20 attorneys general" would not be on WV's payroll -- each State has only one Attorney General, so all except one are on other States' payrolls. (Ohio could be one of those, but still the PN&S reader is only paying for one Office of Attorney General.)

Sounds to me like our new attorney general is going to be wasting a lot time and tax payers money playing politics instead of doing what he was elected to do.

Re-read the editorial, Suttle. That's 10-20 ATTORNEYS GENERAL - 1 for each of 10-20 States.

10...15....20 attorneys???? It appears that Morrisey's legal sham is nothing more than a welfare program for attorneys. How much of taxpayers money is going to be frittered away, all with Mike Myers blessing no doubt. Attorneys at the public trough puts pigs to shame.

If the war on affordable electricity is to be won, it will have to be in the court systems of by an obstructionist house as any federal law trumps state law. If John Boehner is a true leader, he will use the upcoming spending cap increase to reign in the White House.
