Hassett paints Van Hollen as partisan ideologue

Attorney general candidate and former DNR Secretary Scott Hassett painted AG J.B. Van Hollen as right-wing ideologue who puts politics above the law, while stressing his own record as a trial lawyer and protector of the environment.

Hassett criticized Van Hollen for suing over voter registration HAVA checks, refusing to defend the state's domestic partner law, for wanting to challenge federal health care reform, and for not trying a criminal case as U.S. attorney.

Hassett called Van Hollen “an incumbent whose loyalty is not the the law but to the dictates of his party and its most right-wing extreme base.”

Hassett vowed to keep the state safe from polluters, stand up for consumers, defend equal rights and protect the state from crime.

Hassett highlighted his experience as a trial lawyer, saying he was trying cases while Van Hollen “was looking for a prom date” and highlighted the DNR's $1.7 million fine against Menards for pollution under his leadership.
