A veteran Democratic state legislator publicly ripped former Gov. Janet Napolitano on Thursday, saying she abandoned fellow Democrats and others by turning over the governor's office to Republican Jan Brewer.

Sen. Ken Cheuvront of Phoenix said Napolitano's resignation Tuesday to become U.S. homeland security secretary said a lot about Napolitano's character because it means that policy legacy in Arizona will likely be erased because Republicans now control both the governor's office and the Legislature.

In Cheuvront's words, "this decision that she made and made alone will affect the children, the students and the parents of this state."
