Interesting article from 2013 about Cleta Mitchell

Big homophobe. Interestingly, her first husband was gay. Her second husband was convicted of five counts of felony fraud. When that happened, she was convinced the government overreached (you know, because the government should have allowed him to defraud people). She’s a Former liberal Dem who fought for the ERA, now a right wing bigot trying to help Rump kill our democracy. What a witch.

1. A real Dem does not flip 100%

She must have some issues and problems that we are not aware of yet but I sincerely believe she was a so-so Dem at best. We DO NOT want her support...EVER!

2. A good member here knows her.

They mentions this about her on a more personal level when her name came up.

Basically, they said she went crazy. People break, it's never pretty but it does happen.

3. Foley & Lardner To Feel Wrath Of The Lincoln Project

The Lincoln Project got Jones Day to drop trump as a client. This will be fun to watch



Free advice for all Biglaw firms: you will be held accountable in the court of public opinion for the work you and your partners do. That’s a lesson Jones Day is well acquainted with. As is Porter Wright. And King & Spalding. And Hogan Lovells. You get the point. So if a partner at your firm plays a prominent role in one of the most shocking phone calls in American history, well, you’ve got some ‘splaining to do.

Of course I’m talking about Foley & Lardner partner Cleta Mitchell’s participation in Donald Trump’s harassing of Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to just “find 11,780 votes.” It seems that the never-Trump PAC The Lincoln Project has turned their attention to Biglaw over the incident.


There are already murmurs of Foley losing business over Mitchell’s involvement in the debacle, and tweets like these from The Lincoln Project only ups the pressure.

And they aren’t the only PAC paying attention to Biglaw. MeidasTouch — remember they are the ones that actually drew first blood in the campaign against Jones Day — has turned their attention to Foley & Lardner. One the the PAC’s founders, Ben Meiselas, partner at Geragos & Geragos, has been very vocal about the firm’s involvement, specifically when Foley attorney Jason Villalba tweeted (though he’s since deleted it) about the now infamous phone call without condemning Mitchell’s involvement.
