Richard C. Blumenthal is the Attorney General of the State of Connecticut, and a high profile critic and watchdog of the event ticket industry.
The 63-year-old Democrat and Yale Law School graduate was elected to the position in 1990, and he has made a name for himself as a tireless defender of consumer rights. In addition to training an eye on the ticket industry, Blumenthal has also been instrumental in fighting for protections for children on Internet Web sites such as Myspace.
Blumenthal opposed the repeal of Connecticut’s anti-scalping laws, which were still approved, and he also opposes the proposed merger between Ticketmaster and Live Nation.
