In an editorial today, the Knoxville News Sentinel writes that Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey is distorting Tennessee Attorney General Bob Cooper’s record in an attempt to portray him as anti-business. “Cooper’s record,” the editorial board writes, “shows he is an advocate for Tennessee citizens. He has joined other state attorneys general — of both parties — in going after pharmaceutical companies, mortgage lenders and other companies that have defrauded and deceived Tennesseans in violation of state and federal laws.” There is   nothing inherently wrong with Ramsey’s quest to put a Republican in the attorney general’s office, the newspaper says, but “he should not mislead taxpayers about the attorney general’s activities on their behalf.”
