On to Part 3... We've already discussed how Jim Clyburn has lost his popularity as far as donations go, and how some companies seem to be in a quid pro quo agreement with the Clyburn Camp . Today, we have a combination of the two.....
I bring you Fulbright & Jaworski of New York City. Who are they? They're a law firm, actually based in numerous areas worldwide, but we are focusing on the New York office, becaus that's where the stink is coming from. F&J has many specialities, but the New York branch is listed as such. " The New York office serves a broad client base including large publicly-held corporations, investment banking and brokerage firms, venture capital and leveraged buy-out firms, investment funds, private equity and institutional investors, life science, high-technology and other emerging growth companies, privately-held companies, partnerships, individuals, estates and charitable organizations and foundations. "
So, in short, they are a law firm that represents Big Business. Go to their website, and it's pretty surprising at some of their work: NYSE, SEC and NASD Investigation protection, Discrimination and Sexual Harrassment suit defense, EEOC and NLRB law for businesses. So, they essentially are exactly NOT what Clyburn has spent his entire career fighting for - or at least what he SAYS he's fighting for. Sounds a bit hypocritical, don't you think?
How much support has Clyburn received from F&J? Well, he got doantions from 19 , YES 19.. different attorneys from F&J - all from the New York office. Of them, almost NONE of them has EVER donated money to a federal level candidate, except for an occasional NY Senator or two.
So, what does a big NY Law Firm want from a Congressman from rural South Carolina? Sorry to let you down a bit on this one, but I don't know. I don't have the tools to find this one, but I can tell when something stinks worse than the Fulton Fish Market!! Maybe The State or a local TV station can take a few minutes out of their busy schedule, and ask Clyburn a rare probing question... Like a good St. Bernard, I can only take you to the frozen guy in the Alps, dig a small hole, then start barking.
WOOF, WOOF, WOOF !!
