How does one “hire” someone if that “someone” is being paid for by someone else? How about “plant” someone inside an office? What is even worse, that plant is inside an Attorney General’s office? That person planting is none other than former Mayor Bloomberg and this is not the first office is has done this with. How many other AG offices are being used by outside groups to politicize their points of view and carry out their agenda?
New York regulators asked an ethics panel to investigate potential conflicts of interest claims after the attorney general’s office hired an attorney paid for by former mayor-turned-environmentalist billionaire Michael Bloomberg.
“We know NY OAG only sought an ethics opinion over 13 months after promising Bloomberg’s group there were no ethics issues, and 8 months after having already brought them on board,”
The request was sent the same day that a government watchdog group filed an open records request about the hiring of two Bloomberg-funded attorneys into the attorney general’s office. Bloomberg has turned his attention to environmental issues, gun control, and anti-tobacco regulations since leaving office.
The former New York City mayor’s most ambitious project has been funding the “State Energy and Environmental Impact Center” (SEEIC) at the New York University School of Law. The program trains and deploys attorneys to work in state attorney general offices around the country.
Its selling point is the fact that it would pay the salaries of all new hires at no cost to taxpayers.
Right now, there are two lawyers working in Healy’s office as “Special Assistant Attorneys General,” with all the power that confers. But they’re not working for we, the people. Instead, their employer — the guy who writes their paychecks — is a private citizen. And his name is Michael Bloomberg.
They’re working cases in Boston, but they’re getting paid out of New York City.
What the what, you ask? It’s called the State Energy and Environmental Impact Center and since 2017, they’ve been putting private attorneys, paid for with private, green-activist dollars, inside Democrat-controlled state attorneys general offices around the country. Their stated goal is “advancing progressive clean energy, climate change, and environmental legal positions.”
Michael Bloomberg started the project with a $6 million check and — shocker! — these lawyers are using our public AG’s office to promote Bloomberg’s green political agenda. How is that legal, you ask? Welcome to Massachusetts.
Keep in mind Soros has been stacking D.A. races throughout the country.
George Soros, the billionaire of progressive-slash-socialist and globalist causes the world over, has been busy buying his way into local district attorney campaigns in the United States. He has found he can get a lot of bang for his bucks in these races.
Then just plant attorneys of whatever persuasion to litigate your point of view against your adversaries. Not just civil litigation but now you can charge criminality.
A corrupt judicial system is/will be the final nail for our republic.
Other than that, all is well in the swamp.
