Republican Governor of Arizona, Jan Brewer is being hit on all sides over this new immigration law. Barack Obama's Assistant Secretary of State James Posner apologized to China of all places, for the new law in Arizona; Mexican president Felipe Calderon chimed in on both the White House lawn and in front of a joint session of Congress; Democrats gave him a standing ovation. Now, we learn that Hugo Chavez and the Castro brothers have a problem with SB 1070 as well.

There's not a whole lot Brewer can do about those attacks but she's decided to do something about the potential conflict of interest that may exist between her state's Attorney General - a Democrat who met with Eric Holder on Friday, May 28th. Interestingly, Brewer's state legislature gave her advance approval to use outside counsel in her defense of the new law, which is expected to be challenged by the Federal government.

The L.A. Times blog reports that Arizona AG Terry Goddard is, for all intents and purposes - being taken off the case by Brewer:
On Friday, Goddard met with the Obama administration's Atty. Gen. Eric Holder in Washington, then held a news conference just hours before Brewer's handpicked attorneys were to meet with Holder, an outspoken critic of the law.

Brewer said, "I believe the federal government should use its legal resources to fight illegal immigration, not the State of Arizona."

Seeing apparent collusion between the two Democrat lawyers, Brewer pulled the plug Friday night.
Now, Holder can talk to Goddard all he wants but it will likely be in vain to do so. It's a pretty sad statement when a governor has to worry about her Attorney General violating his oath for political reasons. It's an even more ominous prospect to consider that the U.S. Attorney General would be complicit in the former's doing so. There are two politicians exhibiting true executive leadership these days. One is Brewer and the other is Chris Christie, governor of New Jersey. There are 48 other Governors that should feel free to stand up any day now.

Rick Perry, are you listening?
