State A.G. to Howard K. - Don't Bitch Slap Me!

California Attorney General Jerry Brown played defense on Tuesday after Howard K. Stern's court hearing in the Anna Nicole Smith drug case, insisting he didn't abuse his power by gunning for H.K.S.

Stern's lawyer, Steve Sadow, lashed out at Brown, essentially calling him a demagogue who was aching to win the next Governor's race, using Stern as his stepping stone.

Brown said there was nothing wrong with devoting a boatload of money and resources to investigating Stern and Anna's two docs. He didn't exactly answer our question -- Would he have devoted the same resources if Anna Nicole wasn't the "victim?"
