Look Like Fauxcahontas in Deep Buffalo Doo...

JD Rush brought this to my attention:

Elizabeth Warren’s law license problem
The debate last Thursday night between Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren covered ground mostly known to voters.

But there was one subject most people watching probably did not know about, Elizabeth Warren’s private legal representation of The Travelers Insurance Company in an asbestos-related case.
Professor Jacobson really goes over the entire shebang on Taxagawea. She may not have done anything wrong, technically, but it sure smells funny. There's a great deal of refusal on the part of the Warren campaign, and it strikes me as interesting. Mitt Romney doesn't release his tax returns and the media is all over him for hiding something, yet here we have S**ting Bull declining to release her law records and no one cares.

I guess we could also file this as an "imagine if"...

That is all.

This is a non-issue. I can't believe that she'd be named in a case like that and the opposing attorney wouldn't call that shit out to the judge at the time those cases were on trial.

It's a non-issue if Fauxahontas can persuade people that it is. I'm not a lawyer, but Prof. Jacobson at Legal Insurrection is... and it seems pretty clear the way he describes it -- Elizabeth Warren has been dispensing legal advice in Massachusetts for over ten years, signing her name to legal briefs, and getting paid for it, all without being a member of the Massachusetts bar (and thus ineligible to practice law here).

She'll stonewall this (hah!), because that's what she does when she gets her hand caught in the cookie jar. But she's been caught red-handed, being both arrogant and stupid... which is not a good combination in politics.

This is just crying out for a song parody, you know...

Lizzie Warren sought a tax
To give the taxpayers forty whacks.
When she saw what she had done,
Hit 'em again! with forty-one.

No, you can't be fake Cherokee in Massachusetts...

A spokeperson for the Mass Bar Association confirmed that she is not licensed in Mass ...... " but since she is a Law Professor and this was part time work we are not that concerned......"

Right.... so, She gets a pass under the "Kennedy Rule".

..... and the local media will continue to ignore the whole thing.

Since I once taught a First Aid Class can I claim to be a Doctor?????

I promise I'll only do it part time.

I'm not surprised that the Glob isn't picking this up, but I am surprised that the Herald ISN'T.

Normally the Bar Association would be all over someone practicing law without a license, but because she's someone special, I guess she gets a pass.

Remember, following the law is for the little people.
