When Do the Witch Trials Start?

Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen has officially started his reelection campaign and it is on the backs of the LGBT Community in Wisconsin (as if that is a surprise). Although he is the Attorney General and is supposed to defend the State of Wisconsin in court, he has refused do so now that some of his fellow fringe dwellers are suing the state over very limited domestic partner benefits. Van Hollen is wildly extreme and he has already proven that he has no problems with misusing his office for political/ideological gain. Trying to silence others by filing a frivolous law suit days before an election, chasing out law enforcement professionals for partisan cronies, strategically trying to obstruct certain voters, and now refusing to do his job because he would rather display his own extreme personal beliefs.

Others have already made some very interesting observations on Van Hollen's latest abuse of his office:

One Wisconsin Now points out Van Hollen's hypocrisy after comparing his last campaign statements with his actions today.

Emily at the Lost Albatross observes that Van Hollen apparently has dismissed his own job description.

Illusory Tenant points out that Van Hollen has absolutely no authority as AG to attack a state statute. (btw, doesn't this make him an activist AG?)

Capper adds a few more examples of Van Hollen's questionable actions as AG.

I don't have much to add to these insights except this one question…when can we expect the Van Hollen-led witch trials to start?
