What's the old saying about karma? I think losing his license to practice law as a result of showing complete contempt for our justice system sounds about right.

KGET.com:

A coalition of San Francisco lawyers says a Bush administration official violated legal ethics when he called for a boycott of law firms that represent Guantanamo Bay detainees.

Now the Bar Association of San Francisco is calling for the California State Bar to investigate Charles "Cully" Stimson, a deputy defense secretary and member of the California bar.

Earlier this month, Stimson told a Washington radio station that more than a dozen law firms assisting detainees should be boycotted.

Nanci Clarence, president of the San Francisco group, says a lawyer's duty is "to represent the defenseless and oppressed."
