State AG Conference paid for by lobbyists and big corporations

E-mail Print PDF

Attorneys general from around the nation are attending professional and political conferences this month — paid for in large part by corporations and lobbyists with potential legal issues in their states.

The donors? Drug companies, tobacco firms, alcohol lobbyists, banks, energy companies and labor unions, among others.  Critics say the conferences — combined with corporate donations, sponsorships and political contributions worth hundreds of thousands of dollars — represent at least the appearance of a conflict of interest for the attorneys general, and could be improper.
