Gloria Allred's Stimulating Press Conference

Celebrity ambulance chaser Gloria Allred is at it again, with another splashy, trashy press conference (that often lacks a logical follow-up). Most, but not all, of Allred's controversial grandstanding has a political motivation, such as her efforts to undermine Meg Whitman's campaign for California governor. Apart from the latter instance (which was a set up by organized labor bosses and other Democrat operatives), we wonder how these quasi-plaintiffs get connected to Allred so fast, not to mention establishing their "credibility"? Do they just call the main switchboard?

As Michelle Malkin writes, Allred is "scrambling to hop aboard the Cain Train." Allred's comment about a "stimulus package" was funny, but a rush to judgment int his case may be premature, however. For example, reports are surfacing that Herman Cain's accuser hugged him like an old friend or a long-lost relative at a political event last month.

By the way, during the Clinton administration, even though an active civil lawsuit against the-then president was in play, didn't the liberals insist it was okay to lie about sex?

Law School: Our LSAT Data was Bogus

More gavels falling on law school admissions malfeasance?
The University of Illinois acknowledged Monday that its law school reported and/or published inaccurate admissions data in six of the last 10 years.
The university, in a prepared statement, said it had determined that Paul Pless, the law school's former assistant dean for admissions and financial aid, who resigned last week, was solely responsible for the inaccuracies...
Investigators concluded that Pless, who was responsible for reporting the information, "knowingly and intentionally" miscalculated key data to make it seem as if the University of Illinois was showing steady and occasionally dramatic improvement in the main factors used to gauge the academic credentials of a law school class.
Back in 2009, the same law school was accused of corrupt, politically motivated admissions practices.
