Zoeller Wants Government Branches To ‘Support Each Other’

Attorney General Greg Zoeller was sworn in Monday along with Gov. Mike Pence and Lieutenant Governor Sue Ellspermann.

Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller says he wants to build bridges between the state’s three branches of government as he looks ahead to his second term.

Zoeller, who was officially sworn into office Monday, says he is excited to meet the challenges that await in his next four years in office.  And he says, to serve the separate branches of government, he wants to convene a coalition of his clients.

“Many of our challenges require each of the state branches to cooperate and support each other’s efforts to address complex issues,” he says. “The Office of the Attorney General will strive to become a force multiplier within government.”

He says helping lead the state will also mean more than just defending it in court.

“We must do more to reestablish our state sovereignty and push back against overzealous encroachment by the federal government,” he says.

Zoeller says he looks forward to working with attorneys general across the country towards that goal.

    In other words, it is time that we, as RepubliThugs(tm), now that we have complete power over the citizens of Indiana, consolidate our power and do whatever it takes to keep on the “race to the bottom” by doing anything in our power to keep our citizens under our control and any benefits due them from the federal government, away from them. Tyranny is ours!
