The Houston law firm has been going around the country lining up contracts to sue drugmakers on behalf of states, and it hasn't been shy about donating generously to state politicians involved in the process. So we may expect that today's WSJ editorial about New Mexico AG Gary King, like its editorial earlier this month about Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, will be just two installments in an ongoing series. Our earlier coverage: Aug. 19 and Dec. 15, 2008 (Penn.), Oct. 9, 2007 and March 13, 2008 (Ark.). We noted last March that BPB founding partner Don Bailey has been among the most generous contributors to the Democratic Attorneys General Association (DAGA).
