Skip to comments.Bloomberg’s ‘mercenaries’: Billionaire Dem funding network of climate lawyers inside state AG offices
Posted on 02/18/2020 7:15:05 AM PST by Blood of Tyrants
A program funded by 2020 presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg is paying the salaries of lawyers who are farmed out to liberal state attorney general offices to pursue climate-based litigation -- a compact critics say amounts to Bloomberg buying state law enforcement employees to advance his preferred political agenda.
The arrangement, which currently pays the salaries of Special Assistant Attorneys General (SAAGs) in 10 Democratic AG offices, is drawing new scrutiny now that Bloomberg is running for president. The New York University School of Law's State Energy & Environmental Impact Center, which was started in 2017 with $5.6 million from Bloomberg's nonprofit, hires mid-career lawyers as "research fellows" before providing them to state AGs where they assist in pursuing "progressive" policy goals through the courts.

Government versus the citizens.
Attack of the billionaire Oligarchs.
Fueled by contempt for the voters.
Supports my view that the climate change racket:
1- is a means to control the masses
2- an elitist scheme make tons of money funneled to them through government
3- globalize government
Bloomberg is a globalist elitist running under the Rat moniker.

Be sure to turn yours in.
What....Sounds like privatized custom lawyers doing Bedbug’s bidding.
For a change, how about equal justice under the law?
This guy is a Bond villain.
Just as Soros planned, shows where MiniMike really comes from
Is this even legal for private group to pay Govt employees?
I know Govt Contractor 1099 employee.
I’ve seen this moron’s ads all over YouTube. Great, keep right on blowing tons of money on this crap, Mikey.
If their salaries are paid by this outside group they arent state employees unless the Bloomberg money is paid to the state who then pays them as employees. There would also have to be some legal agreement or contract with the state to accept this money. If they work as outside contractors paid directly by Bloomberg, how could they legally use state equipment, have state office space etc.?
We already know Steyer is heavily invested in the green industry. I bet Bloomy is as well.
The only green movement Im interested is the one in the morning when I had spinach salad for supper.
This was recently (last 4 weeks).
The Bloomberg site may have analyzed my "cookies", and saw some things about me (like a Freerepublic "cookie").
I think I will avoid Bloomberg from now on...
Michael Bloomberg wants to spend billions of dollars. And he may have "ulterior motives to hire someone on Freerepublic.
No thanks, Mike...
This is ridiculous. How can a tweet from Trump they claim influenced a recommendation be illegal/impeachable (take your pick), but directly funding lawyers working inside the government to do your bidding be okay. This will be an interesting point at the debate between Bloomberg and Trump if it comes to it.
