Wiseman Quoted in Debate for Method of Selection for State AG

Lang Wiseman was quoted in today’s edition of The Memphis Daily News concerning the debate over how and whether to reform the method by which the State Attorney General is selected.  Presently, the AG is selected by the Supreme Court; however, there are a growing number of (mostly Republican) legislators who are proposing that the AG be popularly elected.

Wiseman disagreed with that approach, instead favoring the federal method whereby the AG would be appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the State Senate.  Wiseman was quoted as follows:

“I think the politicization of the government’s arm to enforce the law is not a good thing,” Wiseman said. “Having said that, I think having the Supreme Court appoint the attorney general is probably not good either.

“I tend to side with the prevailing view of the Founding Fathers, who understood that enforcing the law is an executive function and needs to be within the executive branch.”
