From the Wisconsin Democratic Party:
Van Hollen says GOP 'may have asked lawyers in my office to file the lawsuit.'
In a recent interview with CNN, Attorney General JB Van Hollen finally admitted to what we’ve known all along, that his hyper-partisan lawsuit against the GAB was brought in collusion with his Republican Party bosses.
Van Hollen doesn’t have a very good poker face. Watch his eyes wandering nervously when the reporter presses him on whether or not the GOP personally asked him to file the lawsuit. Maybe he’s nervous because he lost his lawsuit and now his web of cover-ups and deceit at the DOJ is finally unraveling.
Remember, this is the same guy who made the following statements to reporters last month:
“There was no discussion with anybody involved in leadership with the Republican Party (or the McCain Campaign) about this lawsuit before it was brought." - Attorney General JB Van Hollen (Source: MJS, 9.18.08)
(Van Hollen) said he had “no reason to believe” any of his aides discussed the case with the GOP or the McCain campaign. (Source: MJS, 9.19.08)
"This should be about as nonpartisan an issue as there is. … Once again, I don’t know who is making this a partisan issue. Our decision to sue is non-partisan as well." - Attorney General JB Van Hollen (Source, WPR, Joy Cardin, 9.18.08)
