Here is the thread by email from the Montana Attorney General Steve Bullock when I challenged him on his refusal to join the lawsuit. Read it and judge for yourself if he deserves to continue to be in the office.

Subject: change your mind
You need to change your mind and file against the health care unconstitutional so called law.
It's null and void from it's inception. We will throw you out next time you run if you don't.

Thanks for expressing your concerns about the constitutionality of the recent health care legislation.
We have reviewed the legal arguments that are being used to challenge the legislation, and have concluded that it is highly unlikely it will be found unconstitutional. This is a conclusion that is shared by the vast majority of legal scholars, liberal and conservative, who have reviewed the issues. As a result, Montana will not be joining the lawsuit that several state Attorneys General have brought.
People can certainly disagree over whether the health care legislation is good policy. That does not mean, however, that the State of Montana should spend taxpayer money to file a lawsuit that we do not believe has legal merit. Like the Republican and Democratic Montana Attorneys General who served before me, I try hard to keep my personal political beliefs out of legal decisions.
My staff and I are busy and working hard to protect the interests of Montanans. The courts will have the opportunity to judge the merits of the challenges to the health care legislation without the involvement of Montana. If we are correct and the courts reject the challenges, we will have saved valuable Montana taxpayer resources. In the unlikely event that the Courts declare the legislation unconstitutional, their decision will apply to all Americans - including all Montanans - even though we weren't a party to the lawsuit.
March 25th 2010,
What a cop out. You just don't want to rock the boat or put your career on the line.
But by not joining the lawsuit you are putting your career on the line.
The people of Montana don't want this.
You are NOT "working hard to protect the interests of Montanans". Since when are you Democrats so interested in saving money?
If enough states join in, IT WILL BE UNENFORCEABLE whether it's declared unconstitutional or not.
If ever there was a worthy cause for the Montana Attorney General to use to stand up for the people in Montana it's this one.
You are just proving yourself to be another puke politician rather than the statesman you should be.
Not only are you violating your oath, but you have now shown us who you really are, a radical leftist socialist who goes along with the destruction of our country. Are you one of those who believe like our last president that the US Constitution is just another "goddamn piece of paper"????
Yes this is strong language, and yes I am threatening you with removal from office. You will be removed from office over this issue if you don't immediately change your stand and stand up for the people of Montana.
And that goes for everyone that helps you. The tide is already turning in the political scene, and this issue is the turning point.
It doesn't matter how many times you say you are trying to keep your personal politics out of your office. That doesn't work.
You are responsible. It's how your ACTIONS are perceived that counts. What you do with your office is what counts. We value what you do much more than what you say.
And this stinks.
You need to take your oath seriously, I am publishing your response and this letter on my blog.
Thank you for responding so quickly.
