Attorney General Kris Mayes’ chief of staff, Amy Love, has quit. In a brief press release on Monday morning, Mayes’ office announced that Love would depart on August 7. The attorney general’s office didn’t offer any further details.
Love recently came into the spotlight over the budget debates. She submitted an unsuccessful request to increase funding to the attorney general’s office. In a confrontation with Sen. Jake Hoffman (R-LD12), Love told the Senate Appropriations Committee that the proposed budget “pillaged” their funding and left them without enough resources to run the consumer complaints division.
