A Turn on Alternative Facts

This time from the infamous Jenna Ellis, former legal aide to Trump's Death star.

Though censured in Colorado for her part in Trump's Passion Play and admitting to 10 false statements during the disciplinary hearing, Ms. Ellis is shocked that the media has said she admitted to lying about the 2020 election (read this in another WAPO column, Aaron Blake, The Fix). According to Blake, she 'merely admitted her public claims were unintentionally false.'

Even though . . .

Ellis signed a legal acknowledgment that “she made a number of public statements about the November 2020 presidential election that were false” and did so with a “reckless state of mind” and with selfish motives, according to documents released by Colorado’s Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel.

She maintains . . .

“This was politically motivated from the start from Democrats and Never Trumpers,” Ellis said in a statement to The Washington Post on Thursday. “They ultimately failed to destroy me and failed in their attempt to deprive me of my bar license. I’m glad to have this behind me and remain in good standing in the State of Colorado.”

The grievance whine is loud and strong--all politically motivated, Ellis claims, even though she signed off on making false statements, did so in a reckless manner and with selfish motives.

She may remain in good standing in Colorado, was able to retain her license but her reputation is pretty well shot.

Good Lord I'm tired of these people!

So, just what kind of people ARE they allowing to practice law in Colorado? Would you like a person like this representing YOUR profession?
