[Ed. – This is a continuation of the Obama “funny money” playbook. The funds are from settlements of suits brought by state authorities, and they’re being siphoned off to the campaigns of progressive candidates. It would be one thing if the law firms were simply acting on their own to bring class-action suits, but that’s not what’s going on. Public attorneys are filing suits, and the settlement funds are finding their way to Democratic candidates.]
Recently, a partnership between Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen and one of the nation’s largest litigation firms, Motley Rice, was officially severed over its deep ties to the Democratic Party.
The contract, established under former Attorney General Tim Fox in 2017, was seen as a bad deal to the traditionally red state as leading lawyers in the firm donated over $2.5 million in support of Democratic candidates over the last two election cycles, according to Federal Election Commission (FEC) data.
Motley Rice, along with other top litigation firms like Morgan & Morgan, Cohen Milstein, and Hagens Berman, have reportedly developed lucrative contracts with state attorneys general that lack basic protections for the consumers in question.
