Rudy Giuliani just floated a bit further up shit creek without any paddles. After hearing testimony and reviewing evidence, the disciplinary committee for the Washington, DC bar found that Rudy had violated at least one professional ethics rule in his quest to help the former guy overturn the election. This stems from Rudy’s rushing to file lawsuits to disenfranchise thousands of Pennsylvania voters without solid evidence that election fraud really took place.

Of course, Rudy did nothing to help his case with an extended rant defending his conduct even as his own lawyer tried to get him to shut the hell up. Then his attorney John Leventhal whined that Rudy wasn’t being treated like other lawyers. Oh yes, he is Mr. Leventhal. Other lawyers have been punished for much less than what Rudy has done and now he’s finally being called to account for his behavior.

As such, the disciplinary counsel for the DC bar recommended that Rudy be disbarred for his antics. Bar counsel Phil Fox stated that Rudy’s behavior had seriously harmed the country, and that the only proper response to Rudy’s misconduct is disbarment. I agree with Mr. Fox. Trying to undo a legitimate election as Rudy and his pals have done is a very serious kind of misconduct. Rudy struck at the very heart of our democracy through his words and deeds, and has proven himself thoroughly unworthy of being a member of the profession (leaving aside that he likely never was worthy).

Rudy and Mr. Fox will now submit written arguments on how the DC bar should ultimately rule, which should happen early next year. And I hope whenever the final ruling is issued, it’s one that tells Rudy he’s no longer welcome to practice in Washington.
