Hodder for NH AG?

Governor Maggie Hassan will soon nominate a new Attorney General, and her legal counsel Lucy Hodder must be among the leading candidates. Hodder’s bio as abbreviated in Hassan’s press release announcing her appointment to Hassan’s staff says she is “a renowned New Hampshire health care, regulatory, and employment attorney.” No quarrels about that.

There wasn’t room in the bio, however, to mention Hodder’s advocacy on behalf of Planned Parenthood of Northern New England. Give credit where it’s due. She has served as counsel, and she has hosted at least one “networking” event as a private supporter (see 2010 PPNNE annual report).

Hassan is not about to name as AG anyone who does not share her abortion advocacy. Even so, it gives me pause to think of Hodder as AG if and when New Hampshire’s parental notification law is challenged, especially if PPNNE brings it to court.
