An audit has revealed that Missouri's Attorney General Chris Koster (Dem) has received more than $170,000 in contributions from law firms bidding to represent the state in various lawsuits.
Missouri Watchdog has the report:
Attorney General Chris Koster accepted campaign contributions from law firms that submitted proposals for contingency fee contracts, an audit report says.
Thirteen firms that bid to work with the AG’S office on major lawsuits gave contributions to Koster totaling more than $170,000 in 2011, the report said. These firms represented nearly half of the 28 that responded to the AG’s office request for proposals.
