Illinois Among States Where Bloomberg Implanted Paid Lawyers In AG Office To Advance His Agenda

• by Mark Glennon

Bloomberg money currently funds the salaries of Special Assistant Attorneys General (SAAGs) in 10 Democratic 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.
