Michael Sussman for Attorney General

I am a Harvard-trained lawyer with 40 years of experience in state and federal court.  I have litigated many, many cases.  My opponents have no similar experience.  I believe rooting out corruption in our state should be the AG’s responsibility.  Right now, we depend on the Trump Justice Department to protect the integrity of our political system and that is dead wrong.  I believe we need strong campaign finance reform, public financing of elections.  I also do not believe the AG should defend against meritorious cases brought by citizens.  Rather, these cases should be promptly settled and improper state practices corrected, not defended.  I believe an independent Attorney General is critical since both major political parties routinely engage in corrupt pay to play practices and neither has strong incentive to cleanse the political system.
