Scooter Libby Has Been Disbarred

I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby Jr., the former chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney, has been disbarred.

In an order released by the D.C. Court of Appeals, a three-judge panel stripped Libby of his ability to practice law after he was found guilty last year of obstructing the investigation in the CIA leak investigation.

“When a member of the Bar is convicted of an offense involving moral turpitude, disbarment is mandatory,” reads the ruling, citing D.C. Code. Read on…

Luckily for old Scooter, he won’t need a license to practice law to make the six or seven figure salary he’s sure to procure in the near future. Wingnut welfare will see to it that he can maintain the lifestyle he enjoyed before he committed treason against his country and then lied to the feds.
