Billionaire Democrat Michael Bloomberg has bankrolled a network of climate-change lawyers who are operating out of the offices of attorneys general in liberal states, West Virginia state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey claimed Tuesday, calling the Bloomberg setup “absolutely outrageous.”
“[W]hat you are doing is, you’re outsourcing who is running the government to people who are not accountable to the voters,” Morrisey said during an appearance on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.” “It’s unacceptable on so many levels.”
There would be public and media outrage if a corporation like ExxonMobil decided to fund similar attorneys, but for the opposite reasons, Morrisey added.
“I’d like to take a moment just to point out, what would the other side think if the Republican attorneys general were to bring 25 lawyers in [who] were paid by ExxonMobil, and they report both to the attorney generals and they report to ExxonMobil? People would find that to be absolutely unacceptable because it’s unethical.”
