Re: A Shocking Look at Bush's Civil Rights Boss:
As a former Assistant U.S. Attorney and DOJ Criminal Division lawyer, I was appalled by the description of Bradley Schlozman's treatment of career lawyers and politically-motivated hiring while he was Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights. I thought someone should file a complaint with the DC Office of Bar Counsel based upon Schlozman's activities as detailed by the report published by DOJ's Office of Professional Responsibility and its Inspector General. I discovered that Mr. Schlozman is not listed as a member of the DC Bar on the DC Bar's website. Perhaps the DC Bar's membership list is in error as Mr. Schlozman's Martindale-Hubbell profile indicates that he has been a member of the bar in the District of Columbia since 1999. Mr. Schlozman's biography on his law firm's website as of today does not mention his membership in any bar in the District of Columbia, local or federal. This discrepancy may have an explanation that escapes me. However, if Mr. Schlozman is not a DC Bar member, DC's Bar Counsel might not have jurisdiction to adjudicate a complaint regarding Schlozman's professional misconduct. Would a like-minded lawyer who is a member of the Kansas bar or the Missouri bar please take up this cause?
