Did Miers practice law without a valid law license?

That's what this article appears to imply:


Ms. Miers sent the senators her own letter acknowledging a separate omission. She wrote that after submitting her answers on Tuesday, "I became aware that, as a result of administrative oversight, my Texas Bar license was suspended from Sept. 1 to Sept. 26, 1989, due to late payment of my bar dues."


And was Ms. Miers providing legal advice to the President of the United States when she did not have a license to do so?

Practicing law without a license is considered among the most serious breaches of legal ethics.

On Monday, Miers disclosed that her D.C. law license was briefly suspended last year because of unpaid annual dues.


One of the questions on the...D.C. Bar is: "Have you ever been disbarred, suspended, censured...or disqualified as an attorney..."


For example, one of the questions on the registration form to be admitted to the D.C. Bar is:

Have you ever been disbarred, suspended, censured, or otherwise reprimanded or disqualified as an attorney, as a member of another profession including the military, or as a holder of public office?


If Miers neglected to disclose her lapsed earlier lapsed Texas license when she appied to join the D.C. bar, that would present an even bigger ethical violation. If Miers ethical conduct is at best, barely sufficient to qualify her to practice law at all, how could one seriously contend that she should sit on our nation's highest court?

And another question involves her piddly net worth. Nothing wrong with being of modest means, but this woman, who for a decade managed the most powerful law firm in Dallas, and who has spent another decade working for George W. Bush, at the age of 60, has a net worth of less than $500,000 dollars?

What did she do with all her money? Not spend it on bar dues.

"Unethical?"-Ha! Is that all you got? Give the lady a break! "Unethical" does not equal "illegal." Even if she did do something "illegal," she's got a good heart. The president knows her heart, that's all that matters. I too recently discovered football betting tip, my life will never be the same!
