Law professors file misconduct complaint against Kellyanne Conway

Some silly conservatives wanted the DC bar association to sanction Sally Yates. That thread was really funny but a new development makes me smile. It is Conway who has a complaint filed against her before the DC bar https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/law-professors-file-misconduct-complaint-against-kellyanne-conway/2017/02/23/442b02c8-f9e3-11e6-bf01-d47f8cf9b643_story.html?utm_term=.9caaeb2586f1&wpisrc=nl_evening&wpmm=1

A group of law professors from around the country has filed a professional misconduct complaint against White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, a graduate of George Washington University Law School who was admitted to the D.C. Bar in 1995.

The letter, filed with the office that handles misconduct by members of the D.C. Bar, said Conway should be sanctioned for violating government ethics rules and “conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation,” the letter says.

The 15 professors, who specialize in legal ethics, cite several incidents, including a television interview in which Conway made the “false statement that President Barack Obama had ‘banned’ Iraqi refugees from coming into the United States for six months following the ‘Bowling Green Massacre,’ ” and the use of her position to endorse Ivanka Trump products.

“We do not file this complaint lightly,” the professors said in their filing. “We believe that, at one time, Ms. Conway, understood her ethical responsibilities as a lawyer and abided by them. But she is currently acting in a way that brings shame upon the legal profession.”

The professors teach at law schools such as Georgetown University Law Center, Yale Law School, Fordham University and Duke University.
Sally Yates is safe but Conway is at risk. The irony in this development is amusing to me

14. She brings shame upon the legal profession: Law professors file misconduct complaint

She ‘brings shame upon the legal profession’: Law professors file misconduct complaint against Kellyanne Conway
http://www.rawstory.com/2017/02/she-brings-shame-upon-the-legal-profession-law-professors-file-misconduct-complaint-against-kellyanne-conway/

A group of law professors has filed a complaint against Kellyanne Conway, alleging the White House counselor is participating “conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation,” the Washington Post reports.

According to the complaint, Conway, a graduate of George Washington University Law School, violated government ethics rules when she made the “false statement that President Barack Obama had banned Iraqi refugees from coming into the United States for six months following the ‘Bowling Green Massacre.’”

Conway became a member of Washington D.C Bar in 1995, but she is currently suspended for failing to pay her dues. The letter was sent to D.C. Office of Disciplinary Counsel Wallace Shipp Jr., who told the Washington Post his office receives around 1,500 complaints per year. It’s unclear whether Shipp will investigate the group’s claims.

“We do not file this complaint lightly,” the complaint reads. “We believe that, at one time, Ms. Conway, understood her ethical responsibilities as a lawyer and abided by them. But she is currently acting in a way that brings shame upon the legal profession.”

The complaint also cited Conway’s peddling of Ivanka Trump’s product during a Feb. 9 interview on Fox and Friends, noting, “Federal rules on conflicts of interest specifically prohibit using public office ‘for the endorsement of any product, service or enterprise, or for the private gain of friends, relatives or persons with whom the employee is affiliated in a nongovernmental capacity.’”

“Ms. Conway’s conduct was so outside the norm for a member of the legal profession,” Abbe Smith, one of the lawyers who filed the complaint, told the Washington Post. “What prompted our complaint was a combination of the specific conduct that Ms. Conway engaged in plus the fact that she holds such a high public office.”
