Interesting Politics

You have to appreciate how interesting politics can get when you combine it with lawyers on the Internet. A great example is Ken Runion. He's a lawyer and a bastion of local politics in little old Guilderland NY. Lately the Ken Runion team has been messing around on the web in a highly ineffective manner.

That's in the Albany area. There was some funky web stuff there in 2008 between Tracey Brooks and Phil Steck. They were running for Congress in a primary and one accused the other of web shenanigans.

And the problem is spreading. Christine O'Donnell is running for US Senate again in Delaware. What's our role in all of this?

Well, at Dewey Cheatham & Howe, we find that chaos really helps our business hum. While other major law firms are laying off hundreds of lawyers and other staff, we continue to hire, and we get the sleaziest of the sleazy. Business is good. We'll be hiring more. Just keep that crazy politics going on and we'll have more work than we need - but we'll take it if they pay up front.
