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.

1. You'd think he'd be embarrassed to run.

I guess not.

Having the name "Matt Blunt" attached to him won't help his case, either. He was one of the least liked governors in the history of the state.

2. One would think, however

he is a GOP politician so I suspect embarrassment is something that just doesn't come naturally.

3. And he's entwined with the Blunt family.

That would embarrass the average person in its own right.
