Trial lawyers are giving more money to Democrats than Republicans – and it’s not even close, reports Fox News.
According to the Center for Responsive Politics, 97 percent of contributions from the trial lawyer lobby have gone to Democrats in 2014.
“The trial lawyer is very powerful,” ILR president Lisa Rickard told Fox News. “They’re big political players and they overwhelmingly support Democrats.”
And Democrats know it. Just last week, Rep. Bruce Braley of Iowa trumpeted himself as “someone who’s literally been fighting tort reform for 30 years in a visible and public way.” He was speaking to a gathering of – you guessed it – trial lawyers.
