Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) doesn't think tribes should be a formal part of the National Association of Attorneys General, a campaign consultant said. Brewer believes tribal attorneys general can participate in the group on a "limited basis ... given the sovereign status of tribal governments," consultant J. Charles Coughlin told Legal Newsline. But having them be a part of the "formal NAAG process seems to be unwise [and] overtly political," Coughlin said. Brewer was responding to a call by Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard to include tribal attorneys general in the group. "I hope they become a regular part of the NAAG organization," he told Legal Newsline, following a meeting in which tribal attorneys general were present. Goddard, a Democrat, might be challenging Brewer for the governorship in 2010. Get the Story:
