DOJ Official Admonished

A Subcommittee of the Virginia State Bar has admonished a Department of Justice official for drafting a statement denying that Monica Goodling had improperly used political affiliation in selecting potential employees for career position at the Department.

The pertinent portion of the report of the DOJ Inspector General in the matter is linked here.

The attorney admitted that he had personal knowledge to the contrary.

in July 2009, the District of Columbia Bar Counsel informally admonished the attorney for the same conduct.

The conduct was founf to be in violation of Rule 8.4(c) in both jurisdictions. (Mike Frisch)
