One of the ongoing scandals of the Democratic Party is the mutual support between the Party and the tort lawyers. House Minority Leader John Boehner shines some light on the ties, and the relationship and the implications of the recent scandal involving über-tort bar firm Millberg, Weiss. A sample from the Washington Examiner:
"The trial lawyer industry is, of course, a major source of campaign cash for the Democratic majority, which has happily accommodated the industry's agenda. At the behest of the trial lawyer lobby, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has stonewalled a bipartisan national security bill needed to allow U.S. intelligence personnel to listen in on conversations involving al Qaeda terrorist operatives."
