This ad is out going after Hunstein. Not bad. The grandmother killer ad is more powerful.

    What about the hundreds of thousands of dollars funnelled into the Wiggins campaign by the insurance industry? Does Wiggins plan on recusing himself from any case involving the insurance industry? What about the $1.3 million in out of state money funnelled into his campaign from out of state interests? Why do they want to put so much money into his campaign? What do they have to gain?

  2. RuralDem says:

    I wonder if Wiggins is truly this desperate, or are those backing him this desperate? Either way Justice Hunstein should have no problem winning.

    Decaturguy: After Hunstein spent the better part of the debate trashing insurance companies, one might argue any insurer that has a case before the Supreme Court has grounds to demand she recuse herself.

  4. Decaturguy says:

    By that logic, Wiggins would have to recuse himself from every case before the court because he can’t stand trial lawyers.

    What about the hundreds of thousands of dollars funnelled into the Hunstein campaign by trial lawyers? By your logic, Hunstein would have to recuse herself from every case being represented by trial lawyers in front of the court.

    It’s rather humorous/ironic that the trial laywers santimoniously speak of the conflict of interest business interests have in contributing to judicial races but they see no conflict of interest in their own judicial contributions.

    It’s amazing the bubble they operate in.

    Atlantaman,
    You are correct. Try and find out how much lawyers make off of government deals. The trash deal that taylor was in, the county attorney, the landfill attorney, and one of the Solid Waste Authority attorneys was the same guy. Going into the deal, they said there were no conflicts of interest. But when problems arose of it would not work as touted, which meant it didn’t return revenue as proposed, which meant it wasn’t paying bills as needed, they needed to make hard decisions. And they did, they recused themselves, and more lawyers(totally unfamiliar with the project) had to be fired.

    In the beginning, 9 million dollars was taken out in fees by developers, consultants, and lawyers, but you couldn’t find out how much each one got.

    Even a Freedom of Information Act that went through the Authority and on up to Attorney General Baker’s office wasn’t good enough to produce the amount of revenue companies that Mark Taylor had an interest in had gotten. This FOIA paper was even filed in July after Roy Barnes so called Information in Government or whatever law went into effect after July 1 of that year.

    Lawyers are able to wield a lot of political power from the money they donate to candidates. And it’s pretty easy to donate money when all you have to do is shuffle a few papers to rake in a lot of money.

    Usually the main part of the law they worry about is making sure no one knows how much money they are raking in. They make mega-bucks, spend monstrously on advertising, yet look around in your community, their business liscense fees are usually the lowest on the list.

    Pretty good deal , huh?
