You all may have read Cheryl Miller's coverage of the court battles over attorney general candidate ballot designations. (If not, you're missing out. Click here, here, here, here and here [free reg. req.].)
The hilarity, as one might expect, just does not stop. In a statement issued by John Eastman's spokesperson to the LAT blog PolitiCal, the Eastman camp miraculously manages to spin the court-ordered use of their third choice ballot designation as a victory. (Eastman had previously lobbied to be designated as "assistant attorney general." When Judge Allen Sumner said no, he shot for "special assistant attorney-general" and then "taxpayer advocate/attorney.")
"After a flurry of legal skirmishes, I'm happy to let you know that John Eastman's ballot designation will be "Constitutional Law Attorney." This is an extremely strong ballot designation and will clearly set John apart from the other candidates in the race. John is the clear conservative candidate in this contest, a fact emphasized by our approved ballot designation."
That also reads a bit like he's saying Constitutional Law Attorney screams conservative (Erwin Chemerinsky, anyone?) but, you know, whatever.
