Lobbyists Pursue State Attorneys General
From an October 28, 2014 NY Times story:
“Attorneys general are now the object of aggressive pursuit by lobbyists and lawyers who use campaign contributions, personal appeals at lavish corporate-sponsored conferences and other means to push them to drop investigations, change policies, negotiate favorable settlements or pressure federal regulators.”

This is yet another reason why ‘prosecutor’ should not be an elected political position. It exposes the position to a host of pernicious incentives.
