Editorial: Finally, Ed Martin chooses a race befitting his unique skills
Editorial From The St. Louis Post Dispatch.....
Republican Ed Martin hasn't yet asked for our endorsement as he seeks the Republican nomination for Missouri attorney general, but, as he begins his reconnoitered campaign, we suggest an aggressive advertising strategy.
Mr. Martin, the besmirched ex-chief of staff of former Gov. Matt Blunt, should focus on his personal experience with the attorney general's office. He has a lot of it.
Who among potential candidates other than Mr. Martin can lay claim to being one of the principal subjects of a nearly $2 million taxpayer-funded investigation into whether he helped orchestrate multiple violations of the state's open meetings and records law, which the attorney general helps to enforce?
Only Ed Martin can.
