AG resigns... Well, use STXBob's link.. 😉

Ooops. I hope that is the only impasse during the start of this administration...

How about that MissJustice (or Miss Fair)?

Bummer!

Here's the Source article: http://stthomassource.com/content/news/local-news/2015/01/15/attorney-general-diase-coffelt-resigns
That was certainly a short lived relationship.
I wonder what kind of "staffing" problems led to her resignation?

Thanks for a morning chuckle - albeit a very wry one!

I recently read where she already made some high profile arrests for corruption. Maybe they wanted her to back off a bit?

No, the arrests had nothing to do with it. The Justice Dept had been investigating the case for 9 months per yesterday's paper. The IRB and Dept of Finance filed a criminal complaint against several individuals.

That was under investigation long before she accepted the position.
It more or less fell into her lap.
