Bloomberg has implanted paid lawyers in state AG offices to advance his agenda!

on . Posted in Election 2020

NEW YORK (PNN) - February 19, 2020 - Billionaire presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg is paying salaries of lawyers who promote his agenda in state attorney general offices in liberal leaning states, including Illinois, according to various reports.

Bloomberg money currently funds the salaries of Special Assistant Attorneys General (SAAGs) in 10 Democrat AG offices, according to Fox News. Illinois is among those states. There is no indication how many SAAGs are implanted in the office of Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul.

“What’s problematic is the arrangement through which a private organization or individual can promote an overtly political agenda by paying the salaries of government employees,” said Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill.

“They want to put their special-interest lawyers in place to drive a very radical agenda,” said West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey.

Funding runs through the State Energy and Environmental Impact Center at New York University School of Law. That Center was started in 2017 with $5.6 million from Bloomberg’s nonprofit. It hires mid-career lawyers as “research fellows” before providing them to state AGs - where they assist in pursuing “progressive” environmental policy goals through the courts.

According to the Washington Times, State Impact Center spokesman Tom Lalley responded by saying the nonpartisan program “brings academic rigor and independence to its mission of supporting state attorneys general who are protecting existing environmental regulations, addressing climate change, and respecting the law.”

But the Times quotes Chris Horner of the public interest law firm Government Accountability and Oversight saying this:

“This scheme by an activist donor [Bloomberg] to place attorneys in AG offices to advance his priorities is on its face staggering. That the activist developed it while more broadly cultivating support among elected officials at all levels through his foundation, and apparently with a run for the White House also in mind, makes it simply unbelievable.”

A separate opinion piece by the Times describes the arrangement as “buying up law enforcement”.

Another Washington Times article quotes Adam Piper, executive director of the Republican Attorneys General Association, who said, “These folks are being funded as mercenaries, liberal mercenaries, not just on a climate issue but other issues near and dear to Mike Bloomberg’s radical liberalism. They’re doing everything from filing lawsuits to writing comment letters to testifying at Trump (regime) hearings.”

Other states where SAAGs are implanted include Delaware, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, Minnesota, New Mexico, New York and Oregon, according to Fox News and other sources.

We have seen no comment yet from Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul.
