Needed: P.R. advisor for state ALE officials

Maybe there’s something missing from the news reports regarding the recent hubbub over State Auditor Beth Wood’s report on the Alcohol Law Enforcement Section of the state Department of Public Safety, but it sure does seem that, at the least, the folks over at ALE could use a little public relations advice (and, perhaps, a strong word from on high).

Again, maybe I’m missing something, but since when do the heads of state offices like ALE get to hire lawyers who would presume to tell the state Auditor what she can and cannot do about auditing and reporting on that office? And even if they thought Wood was doing something inappropriate, aren’t there some channels to work through? After all, ALE is a section of a state agency that reports to the Governor

I know the Guv has a lot more important things to deal with, but it would seem that she might want to have her staff send a little memo over to ALE folks telling them to get with the program or, at least, come to them first before picking a public fight with another constitutional officer of the state.
