Husch Blackwell vs. Voter ID

 In the good old days, lawyers represented clients at the bar.  Civil litigation, criminal defense, wills, trusts, housing purchases, that sort of stuff.  By no co-incidence, that was when 'practicing law' was honored as a profession.

Now they work to squash Voter ID.  Isn't that special?

...Over the past year, liberal dark money group Sixteen Thirty Fund has spent $2.5 million opposing a Republican-led petition drive to expand Michigan's voter ID requirements. Nearly $400,000 of that money has gone to Groundgame Political Solutions, a shadowy consulting firm that a trio of Republican operatives—including Sen. Roy Blunt's (R., Mo.) son, Andy Blunt—privately launched in May 2021, corporate filings show.

The firm, which Blunt first registered in Delaware before expanding it to 10 other states, functions as a stealthy subsidiary to Blunt's public-facing canvassing company, HBS+. The setup has allowed Blunt and his partners, fellow Republican operatives Gregg Hartley and Meghan Cox, to rake in hundreds of thousands of dollars from deep-pocketed liberals without alienating their conservative clients.

The revelation shows just how far liberal operatives are willing to go to tank the ongoing voter ID expansion effort in the Great Lakes State....

Yes, that "HBS" stands for Husch Blackwell Strategies.  

Wondering why "lawyer" has become a dirty word?
