stop the presses: attorney lies!

the dc sends us this bit from katu-tv in portland oregon, describing how local attorneys are calling for the resignation of the district attorney who appeared in a shifty boat ad, and said things that were later proved to be false.

a lawyer lying? what a suprise!

clackamas county veterans are calling for the resignation of an assistant district attorney who appeared in television ads attacking democratic presidential nominee john kerry's military record.

in the ad, and a sworn affidavit, al french says he served with kerry and that the purple heart medals kerry received were obtained under false pretenses.

however, french admitted later that he did not witness the events mentioned in the affidavit and was relying on what his friends told him.
french's playing fast and loose with the facts do not reflect well on his chose profession as a district attorney.

“mr. french signed an affidavit defaming john kerry's military service and then he admitted that he had no first-hand knowledge of what he swore to," [veteran don] stewart said on monday. "someone who the community trusts to carry out the law cannot be lying in sworn, legal affidavits."
we are deeply disappointed in mr. french. and we are sure buffy and jody are, too.
