Lawyers Behaving Badly

It was actually anti-climactic. The municipal prosecutor surrendered before I could get even wound up. He's going to dismiss the case, but wants to have a word with the officer involved first, as does the municipal judge. The reason why is pretty self-evident: The cop who stopped my client is a cer...

Madison Cawthorn RWNJ in the Congress

The party, ie, the RNC, did not select him. He filed to run in the primary. He won. The role of the party is to fail to denounce him as unfit.

Coronavirus: Vaccines

Can I tinker with that idea? I'm not crazy about the "you get the 1400 if you get a shot" because the country needs the financial stimulus in a pandemic/recession on principle. I would certainly be for having the shots come with a payment of some amount, as I am a proponent of paying peopl...

Just a reminder that some of the above bio is fake: Cawthorn had already been turned down from the Naval Academy at the time of his accident. Also, the "CEO" stuff is a false business. No income from it, no employees. No sign of activity.

Thank you, Foggy!

Gosh, so many possibilities--though in all honesty even IANAL me know that this is going to be a tough haul.

Nonetheless, I'm going for LoudStupid.

Can we count disbarments too? I know you all say that's also unheard of, but Giuliani and the very ill Lyn Wood are asking for it.

And deflection. The various House CTs and proponents of the Big Lie are under serious attack from very angry people ( :- )

They are implementing one of the favorite tactics of LoudStupid: accuse others of what you are about to be accused of.
