(The Plot Thickens?) The Speaker & That Massachusetts Law Firm

The Daily Haymaker, by Brant Clifton • 

Chuck Suter — who, with his video camera, strikes fear in politicians across The Carolinas –has released a new video alleging that state House speaker and US Senate candidate Thom Tillis has been using his position in the General Assembly to directly benefit the clients of his wife’s family’s Massachusetts-based law firm.

This site confirmed that Tillis’ US Senate campaign received more than $10,000 from employees of Campbell, Campbell, Edwards & Conroy.  Over the summer, state House leaders (of which Tillis is the most senior) led the effort to kill legislation requiring an in-state brick and mortar showroom to sell cars in North Carolina.  The legislation was strongly opposed by Tesla Motor Company, which has been represented by Campbell, Campbell, Edwards & Conroy — Susan Tillis’ family’s law firm.
