BREAKING: DNC severs ties with attorney Mark Elias
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) has decided to end its relationship with well-known Democratic lawyer, Marc Elias, according to sources who spoke withPunchBowl News on Tuesday.
The split comes as a result of strategic disagreements between the two parties.
Elias has served as legal counsel for the DNC since 2009 and his firm, the Elias Law Group, represents all of the major Democratic entities in Washington. Despite this separation, he will continue to work with several Democratic senators and members of Congress.
Elias is known for what he refers to as the “Democracy Docket,” a collection of voting rights challenges across the country. Elias claims that he has taken on 45 cases in 18 states as part of the Democracy Docket. He has a reputation for winning such cases, which has angered Republicans.
According to Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings, the DNC paid Elias’ firm nearly $2 million during the 2022 cycle, while the law group has already earned approximately $100,000 from the DNC this year.
A spokesperson for the DNC, Ammar Moussa, thanked the Elias Law Group for its years of service to the party, saying that the DNC works with several law firms on voting rights litigation, compliance, and other legal matters.
In a statement, a spokesperson for the Elias Law Group said the firm was proud of the work it had done for the DNC and looked forward to continuing to represent the Democratic Party in the future.
