The line between what is acceptable and what is not as it pertains to shaming in the legal arena is murky at best. In the interest of not just those in the legal profession, but more importantly victims and the accused, it is time we get some clarity on these issues.

Serving Up a Christie Town Hall: Never Hand-Picked, But Always 'Curated'

You don't get the charisma of Reagan, or the tearful warmth of a visit with Oprah or Ellen. None of that witty, soft stuff ever mattered with Gov. Chris Christie, the working class hero's governor, anyway.

That Name Sounds Familiar

Stephen Schlesinger

You know that you've failed when a Republican like Joseph Scarborough, host of the MSNBC show Morning Joe, says on his program that Randy Mastro, the so-called "independent" lawyer investigating Gov. Christie's bridge-closing scandal, sounded like Baghdad Bob at his press conference Thursday, and the political writer, Al Hunt -- also on the show -- said Mastro could have served as "Putin's lawyer." What will Christie do for his follow-up? One thing is for clear -- the woman in the George Washington Bridge scandal, Bridget Kelly, the sender of the traffic tie-up demand, is now in the crosshairs of the Mastro-led counterattack.

Bullying Is Not Tough

Lance Simmens

Christie makes a mockery of the tough guy branding he has so assiduously cultivated during his political career. A tough guy is also a stand-up guy. A truly tough guy would accept responsibility for what happened on his watch and vow to never allow it to happen again.
