Brown Ineligible to Be CA Attorney General?

California election law requires that the state attorney general have been admitted to practice law at least five years preceding the election.

Our former "Governor Moonbeam," Jerry Brown, didn't renew his bar membership until 2003, after letting it lapse for many years.

Brown's camp is dismissing this as a mere technicality, saying once you've been admitted to the bar it doesn't matter if you've let your membership lapse and be inactive, but it certainly seems to me that the person who is the state's chief prosecutor should be required to follow the law to the letter.
