Criminal Sentence 665A: Governing Rules

From the paper:

"As governor, Arizonans will know where I stand."

As governor, I will not write misplaced modifiers!!"

I suppose politicians know more about laws than grammar, but I still feel like complaining about this candidate's statement. 

A few years ago I actually did meet this man because we shared the same trainer and my session was after his sometimes. If I meet him again I'll probably not mention this oops.

"...more about laws than about grammar," else the sentence is ambiguous. Does the governor know more about laws than grammar does?
