DAVID RIVERA V. JOE GARCIA’S LOBBYIST SCANDAL – Public records show who is receiving more from lobbyists (links)

Posted by FactReal on October 14, 2010

Whether he is debating or campaigning, Joe Garcia, the Democrat candidate for the Florida District 25 seat, loves to accuse his opponents of impropriety. But will Garcia tell voters the source of his funds? No. Will the media investigate and report the facts about their beloved candidate? No. The Miami media are too busy behaving like cheap tabloids disseminating rumors, intrigue, and allegations without hard evidence (i.e., back-up documentation, videos, etc.) or at least links to their sources.

Democrats and liberals are always demonizing lobbyists, because they like to pretend that they are pure. Democrats want voters to think they are the untainted knights defending the “little people” against the “Republican monster beholden to special interests.” But the public records prove they are lying: Democrats love money and lobbyists, too.

Here are the preliminary records via OpenSecrets.org from the Center for Responsive Politics, which keep tracks of money in politics:

● The Lobbyist: American Association for Justice (AAJ), one of the most powerful lobbyists in the nation. They love frivolous lawsuits and oppose limiting them (tort reform):

Formerly the Association of Trial Lawyers of America (ATLA), this group of plaintiffs’ attorneys and others in the legal profession now goes by the name of the American Association for Justice (AAJ) and boasts 56,000 members worldwide. A lobbying heavyweight, the association has been battling any attempt at tort reform, including recent proposals to cap awards in medical malpractice lawsuits. AAJ also lobbies Congress on any legislation that may inhibit the ability of consumers to bring lawsuits, particularly against health care providers, asbestos companies or insurance companies processing claims related to terrorism. The association favors Democrats, who oppose most attempts to initiate tort reform.

The AJA wants to conceal their real identity:
The Association of Trial Lawyers of America (ATLA) changed its name to American Association for Justice (AAJ) to fool Americans. They replaced the words “trial lawyers” for the more loadable-sounding “justice.” “Americans have grown increasingly disgusted as they’ve watched the plaintiffs’ trial lawyers pad their own pockets while small business owners are forced to close up shop and doctors move out of state.

Removing the words “trial” and “lawyers” from their names won’t erase the harm they’ve caused to working families and consumers every day. Frivolous lawsuits eliminate American jobs, destroy small businesses, and add millions each year to the price of everything from medicine and cars to housing — even groceries!”
