Phoenix, AZ - On Monday, a bipartisan coalition of 37 attorneys general sent a letter to Mark Zuckerberg demanding answers about how and why the personal information of millions of Facebook users may have been misused. Attorneys General were some of the first leaders in the country to stand up for consumers and their privacy. Notably absent from this action is Mark Brnovich, current Arizona Attorney General.
Last November, 44 Attorneys General came together across party lines to demand the repeal of a law that actually hampered the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and rigged the system to make it more difficult to hold drug manufacturers and distributors accountable for their role in the opioid crisis. Then and now, Brnovich is one of the few Attorneys General unwilling to act.
January Contreras, candidate for Arizona Attorney General, commented on Brnovich’s inaction. “These are bipartisan actions we're talking about but our current Attorney General won't act, and Arizonans are left without a voice. He's not acting to hold Facebook accountable, and he was missing when 44 bi-partisan attorneys general fought for the repeal of a law that favored the drug companies and hampered the DEA. Standing up for the people of Arizona against powerful interests is a part of the job description. Brnovich is abdicating this responsibility, and Arizonans deserve more.”
