Matt Denn enters Attorney General race by Jonathan Starkey, The News Journal
Lt. Gov. Matt Denn has filed to seek the Attorney General’s office just days after Beau Biden said he would skip a third term to focus on a campaign for the governor’s office in 2016.
Denn said on Thursday after Biden’s announcement that he would give consideration to an attorney general campaign. He made it official Monday, filing with the state elections commissioner and releasing a statement on his website.
So running for AG is a matter of politics not heart for Denn! If Denn’s heart was in wanting to be AG he should have been willing to primary Beau Biden if Beau were to run for another term as AG. After all, Biden was prepared to primary Denn for governor in 2016.
What cracks me up is, Denn wants to lead the charge in fighting crime in Delaware yet he is Governor Markell’s Race to The Top, Common Core and Smarter Balanced Assessment cheerleader! Denn doesn’t call for state audits of a suspicious land transaction with Moyer charter schools and some odd:
K12 MANGEMENT INC
Transaction with Markell’s old Mckinsey / Chicago Booth buddies. Denn was independently elected as Lt. Governor. Yet he acts like a loyal Vice President to Governor Markell. Yea yea Denn as AG is going to fight to protect kids. All AG’s have done that going way back to Jane Brady’s Safe and Sound Schools. Denn wants to hide behind kids and yet he allows Jack Markell to re-engineer public education to increase the flow of profits going to Wall Street and the Bush family.
Markell is capitalizing on education sowing seeds for life after governorship and if Denn can’t see this immoral social crime no way should Denn be AG. Matt Denn’s cup of tea is Insurance Commissioner and that’s where is belongs.
But as I have thought about it and talked it over with my family, I’ve realized that the Attorney General’s office would allow me to take a leadership role on some issues that are critical to our state, while still staying involved in the issues involving Delaware’s children that have been the core of my work over the last six years.”
Yet a no show during Red Clay’s Special Ed and ELL inclusion agenda which threatened the integrity of the IEP process and pushed ELL students out of Conrad because ELL students were a drag on Conrad’s AYP. Denn supported legislation that take funding from traditional public schools and move it to charter schools. Denn supports a discriminatory charter school admission preference.
Denn, 48, was a lawyer for Gov. Ruth Ann Minner
So what does he know about those Minner land deals?
Jennings, who is well known and respected in political circles and the criminal justice community, said in a Friday interview that she is seriously weighing a run.
“I’ve been approached by several people, both inside and outside law enforcement, in the wake of (Biden’s) decision urging me to run…I care deeply for the mission of the Attorney General’s office and the people who work there every day. For all of those reasons, I am carefully considering my options,” Jennings said.
OMG it’s a non brainer State Prosecutor Kathy Jennings should be AG over Matt Denn! SHE HAS COURTROOM EXPERIENCE fighting crime! The only person out there that could possibly be her is Ferris Wharton!
Electing Matt Denn as Attorney General would be rewarding him for failing to confront Jack Markell on a destructive education reform policy that harms students, parents, the community and educators. Denn says NOTHING about Delaware Secretary of Education Murphy joining ranks with Jeb Bush’s Chief for Change organization. Matt Denn hides in the corner after supporting Speaker of The House hijacking of House Bill #23! Denn apparently doesn’t want the public to hear recordings of school board meetings because charter schools want to operate like corporation yet the want public money because they are public schools.
PLEASE KATHY JENNINGS RUN FOR AG. Keep protecting our children and adults! If Ferris Wharton runs against Jennings at least it would be a battle between two professional with experience and far far far more that what Denn has to offer.
Matt man-up and get your head out of Markell’s ass and run for “governor”. If you don’t help stop the crimes against public education, students, parents, teacher and the taxpayers you helped fuel by supporting Markell you’re not fit to serve in the judicial system! Finish the job and promise of open and transparent government! We’re not going to reward you for standing by Jack Markell!
