McGraw's downfall wasn't that he hired outside consel, it was the manner in which he hired it and who he hired.

Well, who ever McGraw hired they got millions of dollars for the state. It is not so much how or who, but what were the results. And, McGraw never asked for campaign contributions from the same companies or corporations that he might be prosecuting.

“Well, who ever McGraw hired they got millions of dollars for the state.”

No, they got millions for McGraw and his unending campaign fund. How do you think he stayed in office so long? In fact, McGraw’s actions actually cost the state millions as the Federal Government withheld Medicaid funds because McGraw didn’t turn awards over to the state. That’s the one elected official Democrats should have been ashamed of for supporting. In fact, given his past and regardless of your thoughts about Morrisey, it’s shameful that you are still defending him today. That in itself is telling. "McGraw never asked for campaign contributions from the same companies or corporations that he might be prosecuting."

A campaign contribution by the law firm representing WV was the prerequisite to get the business from McGraw. I don’t know where you’re from but that’s illegal here in the US.
