Taxpayers should not pay for Frosh to posture

Maryland Attorney General Brian and the General Assembly should be ashamed of themselves for the horrific waste of our state’s resources pursuing 18-and-counting frivolous lawsuits against President Donald Trump (“Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan withholds money to sue Trump administration,” Jan. 23). These suits are aimed not at advocating for the citizens of Maryland but, instead, to join the national mania of high-profile posturing against President Trump at our expense. Mr. Frosh has been granted complete autonomy and given a blank check to pursue this nonsense by the General Assembly for purely political tactics. The goal, it seems, is to get something, anything, to stick to the wall and thus you become that mythical warrior that brings down the fat, ugly, evil racist through finding the loophole that brings about impeachment. Songs will be written about you and statues erected in your honor.

Maryland is an important state to our country. We have much that needs attention that burdens our state’s culture and our state’s resources and damages our image to the rest of America. Until all issues that currently affect all Marylanders have been properly addressed, not a minute of Mr. Frosh’s time or one dime of taxpayer resources can rightfully be given to this hyper-political stunt that benefits nobody other than Attorney General Frosh and the political party to whom he kneels.

This is about power, not Maryland’s citizens. We are paying millions to fund a petty never-ending assault that only serves to spitefully drain corresponding millions from the Trump family through legal fees and incrimination. How does this help us as a sovereign state? Gov. Larry Hogan was right to withhold funds. The legislature needs to restore oversight of federal lawsuits back to the governor and, this November, we need to elect someone to the office of attorney general who is a bit more genuinely concerned about our needs as Marylanders and a lot less likely to stick us with the bill for his own ambitions or the ambitions of a political party who can afford to do this without us or Mr. Frosh.
