18. Takes a LOT of courage and professional independence to sign this letter.
Edited on Wed May-16-07 03:29 AM by Divernan
I am sure there are a lot more members of that law school class who would have liked to sign this letter. However, no atty. working for any governmental organization (local, state or federal) can make such a public statement. Similarly, any lawyer working for one of the larger firms (and you can bet that a lot of this class are now at the partner level in some of the biggest national firms) would not be able to sign this because of their firm's client base. The biggest firms represent the biggest corporations - with clients like Big Oil, Big Pharma, Big Insurance, etc.

And I can see Rove (or Gonzales) looking up each of these signers to see if they work for some entity upon which Karl can exert political or economic pressure on either the lawyer's firm, or the firm's clients,
