Want to know how SB 1070 is playing out politically? Check out this factoid---Attorney General Goddard and Governor Brewer are sparring over who gets to defend the state in the SB 1070 lawsuits.
Governor Brewer said she had removed the state’s attorney general from defending Arizona’s controversial new immigration enforcement law, accusing him of colluding with the United States Justice Department as it weighs whether to challenge the law in court.
But the matter remained in dispute on Saturday, as the attorney general, Terry Goddard, said in an e-mail message that he was “definitely defending the state” in legal challenges to the law.
I guess Goddard has an understanding of how popular the law really is.
