In June and July 2007 Halligen donated $1,000 to John Unger. On the latter occasion Halligen described himself as ‘Patton Boggs LLP/Attorney’.
John R. Unger, II is a Democrat representing the 16th District in the West Virginia Senate. Unger had filed pre-candidacy papers to oppose Rep. Shelley Moore Capito, the Republican incumbent for West Virginia’s 2nd congressional district, but ultimately decided not to run.
“West Virginia State Senator John Unger is running for Congress because he has committed his life to serving others and has the experience needed to create opportunities for the people of West Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District. Unger was first elected to the West Virginia Senate in 1998 at the age of 28 and is currently serving his third term. John Unger was born and raised in the district, growing up in Martinsburg and has dedicated his life to serving and empowering people in his community, his state, and around the world. Unger volunteered with Mother Teresa in India, provided relief for refugees in Hong Kong and Turkey, and worked with Save the Children International in Iraq.”
