Spitzer Envy

Politically motivated anti-business nuisance lawsuits aren't just the provenance of NY AG Eliot Spitzer (though he has raised this crap to an artform, plus given his jurisdiction over Wall Street, his political grandstanding ends up having national and international repurcussions).

California AG Bill Lockyer also has a need for the spotlight and a desire for bigger and better political offices.

That's the argument being put forth by the auto industry regarding his latest 'global warming' suit against them, and its an argument that makes a lot of sense (even if it is self serving).

UPDATE: Prof. Bainbridge is even less kind to Bill Lockyer than I am. Read the takedown, read it with relish. It's a good one.
