What happens when your Attorney General does not want to file a suit against the Healthcare Bill?

Georgia Gov Perdue (R) has asked his Attorney General Thurbert Baker (D) to file a suit against the constitutionality of the healthcare bill.  Baker declined saying that it was frivolous.  Now, Perdue is looking to find a work around to file the suit.

Yes, politics are in full play from both sides.  However, politics should not be a part of cases filed by states’ Attorneys General.  I doubt Thurbert will be re-elected.
