Newspaper Tree posted a letter they received from a lawyer who very unhappy with my column about Dee Margo and the local Republican party. You can find that article here https://www.newspapertree.com/opinion/2024-re-1-15-08-posting-by-david-karlsruher.
Isn't it funny how lawyers go one of two ways when they pass the bar. Many lawyers who get their first job as a lawyer are all too excited to protect folks using the law of the land. They are thrilled by the thought of being able to apply the great laws of this country to honor and protect their fellow citizens. And then there's the kind of lawyer who can't wait to get their own letterhead so they can intimidate people.
I'm not intimidated.
I'm past the issue. I'm sorry they can't stand the heat in the political kitchen. If you don't want to be commented on, don't run for office. I can't make it any more simple than that.
I think it's odd that my column got that response. I have all but said that Sen. Shapleigh is hiding Osama Bin Laden in his basement. In fact, I have often said that Sen. Shapleigh views single mothers who graduate from UTEP in six years as failures. Not one letter from the Shapleigh camp with a JD anywhere on it.
I'm not sure if this guy is a lone gunman just trying to protect his buddies or if he was asked by the campaign and party to send a shot across the bow. Either way I think they are going to get some laughs from the public. Poor little Davey Karlsruher stirring up all this crap.
I wonder if would have received the same reaction if had written the same things about Haggerty?
