On the same day that a federal judge in Virginia ruled that a critical part of the Obama Administrations healthcare reform package violates the United States Constitution, Governor-Elect Terry Branstad is set to announce that Findley, who pledged to join the lawsuit against Obamacare in her 2010 campaign for Attorney General, will fill a critical role in his administration.
Throughout the campaign, Branstad often took time to acknowledge and promote Findley’s candidacy to Iowans he encountered on the campaign trail. Branstad also lamented over not having an Attorney General who would work with him on key issues.
In Findley, Branstad has placed a strong conservative in one of the most important positions on his staff. Findley’s experience as Congressman Steve King’s Chief of Staff and senior legal advisor for issues before the House Judiciary Committee uniquely qualifiers her for this new role.
“Brenna Findley has a talented, sharp legal mind and her knowledge and work ethic will be valued in my administration,” Branstad said in a press release. “Her work in private sector, combined with her extensive governmental experience at the federal level, provides a strong framework to serve as legal counsel in my administration.”
Findley was born, raised, and home schooled in Dallas County. She worked her way through Drake University by clerking in the Iowa Statehouse, and later, she graduated from the University of Chicago Law School. She spent the last seven years as Congressman King’s point person in the House Judiciary Committee.
The Judiciary Committee in the U.S. House of Representatives is the front line in America’s culture war. There, conservatives debate with the members of the liberal left like John Conyers, Jerry Nadler, Maxine Waters, and Sheila Jackson Lee each and every day on each and every issue.
In this venue, Findley has seen and heard every liberal argument for dismantling the rule of law. She has proven she can handle any legal distortions the best the intellectually challenged Left has to offer. This is a great hire by the Branstad administration.
