Lawyers Buying Favors


So, what else is new?  And what is the hub-bub about?

Newsmax: Ken Starr’s Law Firm Gives More to Hillary Clinton

Attorneys at the law firm Kirkland & Ellis home to Whitewater prosecutor Kenneth Starr  have donated more money to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign than to all the top Republican candidates combined.

Lawyers at Chicago-based Kirkland also home to Bush administration official Jay Lefkowitz have contributed $111,950 to Clinton and another $82,651 to fellow Democrat Barack Obama. Donations to Republicans Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney and John McCain total $84,750.

Kirkland attorneys gave 28 percent more to George Bush than to Al Gore in 2000, and 34 percent more to Bush than to John Kerry in 2004, reports.

In an even more glaring example of politics making for strange bedfellows, lawyers at the firm Jones Day, which represents the Republican National Committee, have contributed more than three times as much to Clinton, Obama and John Edwards than to GOP candidates.

 So,  the status-quo is quid-pro-non?
