#NCSEN: NCGA helps Tesla, car firm’s lawyers give BIG to Thom Tillis Senate campaign
The Daily Haymaker, January 5, 2014
We’ve been doing a lot of campaign finance report reading lately. We’ve found some interesting things about beer and movies on the Thom Tillis Committee’s financial reports. Our latest find — some large donations from employees of a
law firm — had us scratching our heads.
On June 27, Massachusetts resident Jeanette Campbell, identified on Tillis campaign reports as an employee of the Campbell, Campbell, Edwards & Conroy law firm, gave Tillis $250. On September 12, she gave $2350 to the
North Carolina speaker’s senate campaign.
On September 30, it was reported that Ms. Campbell gave $2,600 to the Tillis campaign.
