Lawyers Strongly Support Jeff Harris - Including Koster's Old Firm

Attorneys generally pay more attention to the Attorney General election than the average voter. They know that the AG is not a prosecutor, but the managing partner of one of Missouri's largest law firms, dedicated to serving as the State's main lawyer.

Attorneys are strongly backing Jeff Harris for Attorney General. Missouri Lawyer's Weekly, a trade newspaper for lawyers, did a thorough analysis of attorney's contributions to the race, and concluded that Harris raised the most money from attorneys, that Harris received the most contributions from Bryan Cave (his former law firm), and that Harris received the most contributions from Husch Blackwell Sanders.

The Harris advantage at Husch Blackwell Sanders is raising a lot of eyebrows, because Koster used to work there! Did Harris draw more support from Koster's ex-colleagues despite that fact, or because of that fact?

My memory of his resume is that he worked at Blackwell for one, maybe two years out of law school over 15years ago. Husch was obviously not a part of the firm then. And given Blackwell's rep for growth and associate turnover, just how many of its current attorneys were on the payroll the same time as Koster?

Perhaps he's had some longstanding close relationship with the firm that I was unaware of that would cause eyebrows to raise. But if all you've got is that he served 1-2 years there out of law school in the early 90's? Those raising their eyebrows need to subscribe to some premium cable channels, sign up for netflix or maybe just pick a story from the Soap network line-up. Something to increase the entertainment in their lives.

Oh, yeah... Koster's a jackass. My defense is of quality trash talk and innuendo, not the man himself.

Sophia - his memory lives on with his Blackwell colleagues, from what I've heard. But, I must acknowledge, your closing paragraph is hilarious. Start up your own blog, so I can read your work every day!

Blackwell folks are supporting Harris because of Koster. Koster screwed over the daughter of a partner at the firm. Every lawyer at Blackwell knows about the nastiness. Every lawyer - but one - is supporting anyone but Koster.

Koster went on to screw over other women, check out his nasty divorce in which he stayed in her Loch Lyod home for years and literally took her for hundreds of thousands of dollars.

The more you get to know him . . .
