This is riveting radio.
Gloria Allred, the attorney at the center of the Meg Whitman housekeeper controversy that is roiling the California gubernatorial race between Whitman and Attorney General and ex-Governor Jerry Brown, made the mistake of going on Mark Levin’s radio show yesterday. Levin, of course, is a considerable legal beagle himself as head of the Landmark Legal Foundation and, among his Reagan administration posts, chief of staff to the U.S. Attorney General.
The exchange is revealing of just how politicized this sudden revelation is. Allred, faced with the kind of grilling she likes to dish, does not do well under Levin’s relentless lawyerly focus. Talk about baloney meeting the grinder!
Not mentioned in this exchange is something discovered here.
Allred is hardly just an attorney with a client popping up strangely in the middle of a hot governor’s race. According to the Federal Election Commission, she has contributed just shy of $10,000 in federal campaign contributions to every Democrat running for something at the federal level from Barbara Boxer to John Kerry to Hillary Clinton to Dianne Feinstein to Barack Obama. She has also given money to the California Democratic Party — the latter, of course, which has nominated Jerry Brown to run against — surprise! — Meg Whitman!
You don’t say! WHAT a coincidence! When challenged about any connections to Brown she gives a distinctly lawyerly answer.
Levin let’s her get away with exactly none of this, and does it with a lawyer’s sense of the real game in play. Here’s the link.
Get the popcorn.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
