Chris Christie and the Republican Governors’ Association Hate Criminal-Defense Attorneys

Vincent Sheheen, an accomplished lawyer as both a prosecutor and a criminal defense attorney, who is running against South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R), was accused in attacks ads of “protect[ing] criminals, not South Carolina.” Nevertheless, despite condemnations from all corners, including the American Bar Association, last week the republican governors’ association decided to launch another attack ad on criminal-defense work. How typical of “law and order” republican politicians: all criminal defense lawyers are evil. This is, of course, until they need us, right?
