Pay-to-play, the bipartisan way



South Carolina's Republican Attorney General Henry McMaster has taken big contributions from some of the private lawyers he's hired on contingency for drug reimbursement claims against Lilly, notes today's WSJ, following earlier reporting by Meg Kinnard/AP and Legal NewsLine. Meanwhile, Alabama Voters Against Lawsuit Abuse is quarreling with the state's Republican AG, Troy King, over his retention of outside lawyers in drug-pricing litigation, reports the Chamber-backed LNL. And Ira Stoll's new web venture, Future of Capitalism, notes the bipartisan nature of pay to play scandals in the public pension fund realm.

Update: McMaster responds here.
