"Woman Claims Dog Feces Is Political Expression"Is anyone surprised that the accused is a retired college professor? Anyone?
The lawyer for an ex-professor accused of leaving dog feces at a congresswoman's office said her client's actions qualify as protected speech under the First Amendment.
"What she did was probably crude and boorish," Patricia Bangert, one of Ensz's attorneys, argued during a hearing Tuesday, when she likened the conduct to a form of political protest such as Jefferson's criticism of the King of England.Probably crude and boorish? Likened the conduct to Jefferson's criticism of the King of England? You gotta love lawyers. Someone scoops up dog crap and places it on an opponent's doorstep and it rivals the actions of a great American patriot.
I believe Thomas Jefferson said it best when he said: "I fart in your general direction."
