It’s a very long walk from sorting Biden’s mail to helping him write the Violence Against Women Act. And she wasn’t just padding her resume a little bit, she was blatantly lying about it without prompting to her landlords for the purposes of manipulating them. That is not normal behavior, no matter how determined you Read more

Disagree - in investigations credibility IS a deciding factor. That’s why attorneys are allowed to question witnesses as to their propensity for truthfulness. Her past behaviour that showcases a history of deception or lack of truth is relevant ESPECIALLY when her claims aren’t supported by confirmation (I know she Read more

Thank you for your thoughtful comment. I don’t think people realize how truly stacked the system is against the criminally accused. We just see people like Weinstein and Bill Cosby on TV who can afford to throws gobs at money at a defense and don’t realize they’re the exception not the rule. I can’t count the number Read more

Yeah, you would never think the Scottsboro Boys or Emmett Till. I worked in a law library for all of my career and PD lawyers went through a lot to make sure poor, disadvantaged defendants got a fair shake.  EVERYONE deserves a good and vigorous defense. That’s how our system works. Women who make ONE particular kind Read more

Oh wow, that’s just disgusting. I feel like the old axiom of preferring 100 guilty people go free rather than incarcerating a single innocent person has gone by the wayside. What bothers me the most is that this carceral feminist approach to sex assault and domestic violence allegations mimics the tough on crime Read more

But calling up a bunch of landlords and giving them a bullhorn to vent about missed rent payments only contributes to a culture of silence in which the majority of victims never report their assaults Read more

A history of lying does not mean someone wasn’t sexually assaulted, but in Reade’s case when you have an inconsistent story (both about what happened and why she left Biden’s office,) inconsistent witnesses (two of her witnesses changed their stories to match her changes), and has a history a lying (not just in terms Read more

According to this website, you should only be defending non-violent drug offenders. Don’t forget the article saying Aunt Becky’s lawyers are a pox on society for filing a motion to dismiss on behalf of their client and going to trial rather than just pleading guilty.

Please sir, if you will not comply with the movement’s entry requirements, we will have to ask you to leave. The sign clearly states that you are to check your higher reasoning and critical thinking functions at the door.

Honestly, the thing I found most interesting about the Politico article was not that information about her bankruptcy and landlords but that her own retelling of her role at Joe Biden’s office seemed to be inflating with each person she told the tale to: Read more

Wait, what? How are her landlords irrelevant? They paint a picture of a woman who was bullshitting her way through not paying rent, when she wasn’t busy using them for therapy and destroying their property. Yes, Politico provided space about the damaged floors. As they should. This is what she thought of other Read more

Are you fucking kidding me? Please take another shot at smearing criminal defense attorneys who represent people accused of sex assault when you know absolutely nothing about the law. If you bothered to do the bare minimum of your job, you would know that defense attorneys cannot just bring up evidence of how the Read more

It is certainly not the same since ye olde Anna Holmes days. I really really miss the OG Jezebel and damn Gawker, brings a tear to my eye. I think the majority of the writers now are very young millennials (mid-to-late 20s/early 30s tops) and the tone has clearly adapted to that generation. Long live the days of Erin Read more

Same, I have been coming less and less, but the shitty attitudes of current staff members just turns me completely off.

What?! This movie was highly enjoyable and Tom Cruise and his wig were campy, scenery-chewing perfection. I gotta say, I’ve been visiting this site since it launched but I think I’m done. Between that ghastly “breaking quarantine for dick” article and the current writers’ insistence on writing entire articles sneering Read more
