Sonoran Alliance has previously covered how liberal Attorney General Terry Goddard keeps laying off seasoned prosecutors and investigators so he can hire political hacks who provide no value to the public but who Terry thinks can help him run for Governor. http://sonoranalliance.com/?p=3761
http://sonoranalliance.com/?p=3701 We wonder what is salary is going to be? This will also set Nelson up for a prime position to run for Attorney General in 2010. How convenient.
Previous hires include failed County Attorney candidate Gerald Richard, a liberal Democrat who had a big hand in Phoenix P.D.’s notorious “sanctuary” policy, and Greg Stanton, a liberal Democrat who just quit the Phoenix City Council.
Now comes word that Goddard has hired former Napolitano lawyer and failed County Attorney candidate Tim
Nelson as his right hand man. So what criminal justice credentials does Nelson bring to the Attorney General’s office, which we trust with critical criminal justice functions, including criminal appeals?
Nelson’s exclusive criminal justice experience comes from representing double murderer Jose Ceja, who, despite Nelson’s best efforts to protect him, was executed. In defending Ceja, Nelson claimed that double-murderer Ceja was “non-violent” and that the death penalty was “torture.” http://sonoranalliance.com/?p=3129
And now Nelson will be the de facto head of the Attorney General’s office as Goddard campaigns for Governor, and we will be relying on this criminal sympathizer Nelson to keep people like the Baseline Killer and Serial Shooters behind bars?
Terry Goddard and his political hack-filled office are becoming a menace to law abiding citizens.
