When it comes to Nessel Supporters, Follow the Money…And the Ambulances
LANSING, Mich., May 23, 2018 – Today the Detroit Free Press reported alleged unethical behavior by embattled Metro Detroit Attorney and Dana Nessel donor Mike Morse. In Federal court, State Farm insurance alleged that Morse has been using his law firm as a no-fault insurance patient mill, referring clients to medical firms in which Morse had a direct financial interest. State Farm also alleges Morse received kickbacks, including real estate from medical firms who were seeking client referrals from Morse’s law firm, and who agreed to provide favorable medical evidence in return. This type of insurance abuse is a contributing factor in Michigan having the highest auto insurance rates in the nation. This is not Morse’s first run in with the law. Last summer five women came forward alleging that the attorney sexually assaulted them. However, those allegations did not stop Democrat Attorney General candidate Dana Nessel from accepting a $1,000 campaign contribution from Morse later that year.
Michigan Republican Party Deputy Chief of Staff Sarah Anderson stated “Mike Morse allegedly assaulted five women and Dana Nessel happily took his money. Today, Morse is accused of being involved in unethical behavior that contributes to Michigan citizens paying the highest auto insurance rates in the nation and she is silent. When will Dana Nessel stand up for the people of Michigan instead of her trial lawyer, ambulance chasing friends?” Anderson continued, “Dana Nessel once said that the fact that she lacks male genitalia meant she would be a better public servant. When it comes to where she gets her money, she also apparently lacks ethics.”
