Iowa AG slams report on campaign contributions

Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller dismissed a recent report on his 2010 campaign contributions from those involved in the banking industry, calling it “false and misleading at its core.”

The National Institute on Money in State Politics released a report this week, detailing which banking attorneys contributed to Miller’s campaign. But in an interview with HousingWire Friday, Miller said all but one of the attorneys listed as campaign contributors in the report are not involved in the case. Only Meyer Koplow, a partner at the New York firm Wachtell, Lipton Rosen & Katz, who gave Miller $5,000 in 2010 is involved. He represents Bank of America (BAC: 12.31 +0.33%). However, at the time of the contribution and at the time of the election, Koplow was not involved in the case.

The rest of the attorneys, Miler said, “were not involved in the case, not involved in the negotiations.”

You can check out this bankster sponsored report in it’s entirety here…

Mr. Miller, it has NOTHING to do with being involved in the case or the negotiations.

What it does have to do with is, did you or did you not;

  • Have half of the money you raised in 2010—$338,223 of $785,103—donated after the October 13 announcement that he would be coordinating the 50-state attorneys general investigation?
  • Received $170,300 from lawyers outside of Iowa, which is two-thirds of all the money he raised from them during the entire two-year election cycle?
  • Raised $785,000 in 2010, more than double the $327,196 he raised for his 2006 and 2002 campaigns combined?
  • Have out-of-state lawyers and lobbyists give you $261,445 in 2010, which is 88 times more than they gave over the previous decade?
  • Have out-of-state lawyers who suddenly took a strong interest in your reelection last fall that are among the most prominent litigators and partners from some of the largest and most famous corporate and class action firms in the country, which is not surprising given the numerous high-stakes court cases filed in the wake of the financial collapse of 2008 that could be impacted by the pending settlement?
TABLE 2: Major Out-of-State Contributions from Lawyers
Firm Total from Firm Total from Firm’s Employees Grand Total
Boies, Schiller & Flexner 0 $63,450 $63,450
Kirby McInerney $25,000 0 $25,000
Simpson Thacher & Bartlet 0 $12,500 $12,500
Williams & Connolly 0 $10,500 $10,500
Kaplan, Fox & Kilsheimer $11,000 0 $11,000
Hanly, Conroy, Bierstein, Sheridan, Fisher & Hayes $10,000 0 $10,000
Total $46,000 $86,450 $132,450
“Total from Firm” are donations made directly by the law firm. “Total from Firm’s Employees” are the sum of personal contributions made by employees of each firm.

Didn’t you also received $50,000 from the Democratic Attorneys General Association (DAGA), a political organization that supports Democratic candidates across the country who run for attorney general. lists DAGA’s top 2010 contributors, summarized below?

Notable contributions made to DAGA by lawyers and law firms include:

  1. $125,000 from the consumer protection firm Bernstein Litowitz Berger & Grossmann, which is suing Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, and many other financial institutions over their mortgage practices36
  2. $115,000 from Labaton Sucharow, a firm that is bringing multiple suits related to subprime mortgages37
  3. $77,500 from Kaplan, Fox & Kilsheimer, another national consumer firm with pending subprime mortgage litigation38

Also among DAGA’s top contributors were the same financial firms being sued by the above firms:

  1. Bank of America contributed $80,029
  2. JPMorgan Chase contributed $75,000
  3. Citigroup Global Markets, a subsidiary arm of Citigroup, contributed $65,000

So, I say to you this. Does it really matter if they are directly “involved in the case or the negotiations.” That is a play on words and you know it because the case negotiations and it’s outcome directly effects your “contributors.”

If I am wrong, SHOW us differently, like when you said “We will put people in jail” last year.

What ever happened to that?

Oh yea, the money…

    Does anybody get this? Do WE see what is happening here? There is no justice here! We are PEASENTS…………..availabe and expendable for torture, exploitation and elimination. The great leaders and forefathers who made us what we were are DEAD. So another crack in the infrastructure is allowing evil and greed to flourish! So what next? Forget about getting back what has been stolen and forget about the GOVERNMENT SAVING US. Republican think tanks ( EXTREME RIGHT) are everywhere and these are practicing fascists……….not capitalists or democrats. (ex: ALL TEA PARTIES) We must fight! Remember: IT WAS GOD, GUNS AND GUTS THAT MADE US GREAT. RISE UP PEOPLE!

    This should be investigated a lot deeper and very thoroughly. Tom miller is on the take. If this is right, shouldn’t he be removed from the AG investigation right now? Either that or have it totally opened up for hearings within congress? How can he do anything for the people when he is directly bought and paid for by the banks? This crap is all so disgusting and deplorable. We can’t even get an attorney general who is NOT crooked or corrupted from the banks!? That’s up there with the judges having all their investments in big banks and then pretend they will serve the people—yeah the people from the bank. I could throw up right now. Tom mniller u r a sick and self serving prick and I can’t believe We believed u would look out for the people. What a joke. He needs to be disqualified at very least. Our country has gone to the PIGS. Just hoping they all get slaughtered and soon. Debi. 561-389-9339

  4. This Tom Miller needs to understand when he jumped fast to go after the banksters…that was a dead give away as a cover-up of what his real plans were. He wanted to run the show…he was going to put people in jail..he boldly told someone ‘ It was none of their business ‘…and he has done shit so far and he don’t plan on it….What happened Cowboy Tommy…did somewthing scare you ? You rode the horse in fast…did you fall off ? We are waiting to hear the clink of the iron bars being shut….Do as you say you were going to did see the frauds..didn’t you? They are all there, right out in the open, just open your eyes and look. We are not interested in what the servicers or anyone will do in the future…IT IS WHAT HAS BEEN DONE ALREADY…THE PAST UP TILL NOW…SO GET OFF THIS SHIT OF THE FUTURE. Maybe you don’t even know..but isn’t the Attorney’s General the High Law Enforcement of the State? If so, you and the other AG’s are doing a poor job on this massive ponzi fraud scheme….the homeowners have done all the work for you in finding the frauds….What have you been doing all these months? Sitting and having tea and crumpets with the banksters? Sure sounds like it.

    You are who you run with.

    I, Jason Werner, am very familiar with the way Tom Miller operates his racketeering influenced crap out of his office as of just a few months ago THIS YEAR. Investigators in his office were literally negotiating with borrowers of banks to try to rip off borrowers and pin them with unfair and harsher predatory loans through wicked “modifications.” His office, in those actions coupled with his refusal to do justice and judgment, has essentially worked in complicity with the criminal banks. Would he encourage prosecutors to treat rape victims the same way. Would he lead his staff to treat assault victims the same way.

    The problem is the total lack of integrity on display with TOM MILLER WHO HAS OBVIOUSLY SOLD OUT ALL AMERICANS FOR CASH AND POWER! Who is electing all of these “sell out” poiticians! Why do MARKEDLY DISHONEST INDIVIDUALS get elected! We must find true main street advocates who are willing to return our country to greatness…………….not this “banana republic we have really become!

    • Don’t use electronic voting…..mail in the ballot….or don’t vote at all….electronic is a fraud….but I believe it all is a fraud….it is controlled…no doubt. If the secret society can control the government….the ballot count can certainly be ‘ fixed ‘……or should I say fudged. I figure the only way to get (maybe) honest good people in government is not to have anyone who has been in politics…sad it has gotten to this point…….or….maybe more women…..( I don’t mean Palin so don’t fly off on me) …..notice so far its men who have run the ‘ show ‘…….I said this long before ‘ Inside Job ‘ said it….researchers say the brains work different….but I won’t comment any further on that issue…LOL

    I found a couple you tube videos every American should watch about all of these bastards. The Assasination of J.F.K. Jr.- Full Version, and 9/11 & Future Events-Eric Jon Phelps. Pay special attention to what Mr. Phelps says esp. at 50:49. Spread these you tube videos to everyone that you know. They are long, but they are worth taking the time to watch. These videos are sure to make you really pissed to say the least..

    • l vent says:

      We have to keep calling the bastards out. They hate that. THEY ARE ONLY POWERFUL WHEN GOOD PEOPLE DO NOTHING.

    • That I will have to look up….I read about Princess Diana…knew about JFK from other sources…but never thought of JR. But the list goes on and on with others all over the world. has to be a mental sickness….. is that what guilt does ?

      • l vent says:

        I think it is their need to own and control and micromanage every nation and every person because of no more than pure greed is what drives this beast. They clearly have killed off alot of those that they deemed road blocks along the way to their ultimate goal of world control. They are all completely diabolical and maniacal, and they have no morals or compassion for humanity in general. Their ultimate goal here in America is clear, they fully intend to bankrupt America. They want a worldwide serfdom. THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA’S National Sovereignty will prevail under the U.S. CONSTITUTION. GOD BLESS AMERICA.
