Why Are Business Groups Funding High-Stakes State Court Elections?

Comments Off

They
don’t want to be accountable to people and that is wrong. State
courts
across the country are caught in a high-stakes,
high-priced fight between corporations, insurance companies and the
Chamber of Commerce, who all
want to end accountability destroy groups who advocate for consumers
and victims
of negligence
. According to Jesse Green, spokesperson for the
Michigan Association of
Justice
(MAJ), “Since the multinational corporations and their
front groups, like Dan Pero’s AJP, can’t win through public opinion,
they are spending millions on smear campaigns and attempting to just
buy court that will rubber stamp their anti-family agenda.”

Currently,
the Michigan
Supreme Court
Chief Justice has raised $1.5 million dollars for
his re-election this November. Much of the money is from business
groups according to the Michigan
Campaign Finance Network
. People and families deserve a change.
Soon an opponent will be named to challenge the Chief Justice and we
will be talking about the candidate shortly. Stay tuned!
