Milberg Weiss's bipartisanship



With federal prosecutors signaling that giant class-action firm Milberg Weiss may soon face indictment, New York Republicans are turning up the heat on AG and gubernatorial candidate Eliot Spitzer, who's taken at least $83,000 in donations from Milberg and its attorneys over the years. State GOP chairman Stephen Minarik says Spitzer should give back the money. Complicating his message, however: "A [New York] Post review of campaign filings also showed that the firm and its lawyers gave to a number of Republicans in 2002, including Gov. Pataki, the state Senate Republican Campaign Committee, and then-Assembly Minority Leader John Faso, who is seeking the GOP nod for governor this year."
