Possible. Wouldn't bet on it.

More likely some Republicans are doing that Republican thing and making stuff up.

The blog has shilled hard for some kookspiracy in the past, but I can't recall which one right now. It should be instructional that he has notorious liars and derpsters Gateway Pundit and Weasel Zippers linked in his sidebar.

Possibly, but like I said, on the radio this morning she said in plain english she is not and has never been licensed in massachusetts. Yet we know she provided legal counsel to Travelers somewhere in the 2007-2009 time frame and a Westlaw search shows her as counsel on several other cases. She also mention that her NJ license had been "inactive for a very long time" which means unless she was somehow practicing legally under a Texas license I don't see how she gets around it.

The podcast of the interview is here and the question comes a couple minutes from the end.

P.S. Was a pretty good interview otherwise.

Well I suspect that if someone had a case that they would make it in court, not on a blog.

To bring something to court I believe you need to have standing. For this to be investigated it would likely have to come from Martha Coakley's office which isn't going to happen.

Would love to get lawhawk's thoughts on it.

Interesting argument for Brown to make. Running on a platform of "It's Obamas fault that regulations are killing Capitalism" that he would cite Warren was not suficiently regulated.

"Legal Insurrection" is one of the right wing crazyblogs. Big fan of Pamela Geller, Robert Stacy McCain, etc.

You can safely dismiss anything this loon says.

It appears this is making the rounds on all the right wing crank sites. Can't find any respectable source on it. However a little investigation seems to indicate as long as she was only dealing with the federal courts she wouldn't need a Mass license.

Indeed. I have a family member who forwards stuff like this in chain letters, and a lot of it lonks to this blog.

Damn droid!

Mark Thomson of the League of Ordinary Gentlemen explains why she did not practice law illegally.

One of the more highly rated comments over at Legal Insurrection:

Jack The Ripper | September 24, 2012 at 4:53 pm

Wait a minute!

She gets paid $350,000 per year to teach one class at Harvard Law School!!!

That’s a lot of wampum!!!!!

I mean, the Indians were not paid more than a few beads for the ENTIRE island of Manhattan.

Can Harvard afford to lose such a valuable faculty member to the U.S. Senate?

When she was not scalping Harvard for so much money and interest free loans and free office space, did she ever protest “redskin” mascots like the Washington Redskins, the Atlanta Braves, Cleaveland Indians, Kansas City Chiefs? ‘Cause that would be ironic.

The other comments aren't much better.
