    Exclamation Ohio -- lawyer suspended for insulting paralegal he called a 'ho'

    Thinking he was being funny, an Ohio lawyer has been suspended for insulting a paralegal he called a 'ho'. According to court documents, Skolnick made sexual comments toward the paralegal, made disparaging comments about her husband and mother, as well as referred to her as a "dirtbag" and a "ho." The paralegal had recorded Skolnick's comments on more than 30 occasions.

    Read the court decision, he blamed a 'condition' for his conduct. He also paid her money.

    Yeah, his condition was he was an arrogant anal orifice who thought he could do or say anything we wanted to those "beneath" him.
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    That was a dumb thing to do
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    Should Ho be on the list of banned words?
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    What a vile piece of excrement. I hope his partner forces him out as well.
