We have long admired the liberal Chesley for everything he's done for society. We adore his selflessness, his ability to get his wife Susan Dlott the job of her dreams, and especially his wonderful ethics.
In fact, Stan Chesley is so great that the Kentucky Bar Association has voted to disbar him for a multitude of violations relating to the fen-phen class action lawsuit.
"The 75-year-old Cincinnati attorney had been accused by disciplinary officials of the Kentucky Bar Association of making false statements to the courts and bar officials, self-dealing in violation of the bar’s conflict of interest rules, taking excessive legal fees, sanctioning misconduct by other lawyers and failing to adequately inform clients."Also:
In that report, Graham said Chesley's "callous subordination" of his clients' interests to his own greed was "both shocking and reprehensible".
Sounds like our kind of guy! We don't have any problem with lawyers whose conduct requires disbarment. Neither does Tracy Winkler. We applaud Mrs. Winkler for accepting financial assistance from this kind of guy, and for having the good grace to thank him for his help.
Some might wonder what it is about Winkler that Chesley admires. We believe it is their joint sense of ethics. Tracy herself has no problems spending other people's money to give government jobs to friends and relatives who lack the qualifications to fill them.
The most famous example of this is the infamous Jennifer Triantafilou scandal. Tracy played a key role in giving Hamilton County GOP Chairman Alex Triantafilou's wife Jennifer a job she was completely unqualified to hold, in exchange for Alex arranging for her to be selected the Hamilton County Clerk of Courts. It was the kind of apparent quid pro quo that brings tears to our tax-hiking eyes.
We firmly believe that Stan Chesley is as fit to be a Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court as Tracy Winkler is to be the Clerk of Courts. We need more people like Chesley in politics. We are glad Mr. Chesley will always have a prime seat at the table as long as Tracy's in charge.
