    If your personal lawyer was taking money under the table from the very person you're facing off with in court, you would fire them immediately for unethical behavior and a serious conflict of interest. They may even be disbarred. Yet, when it comes to the Voter ID case, Roy Cooper is taking campaign contributions from the very people funding the lawsuit while he says he's defending the law in court. This raises serious professional and ethical questions about the attorney general as he pursues a campaign for the governors mansion.
