Alleged wife-beater.  Should employers be able to fire people based on allegations not yet proven in court?  If a claim turns out not true, should the alleged be able to sue the company for wrongful dismissal?
Again, what does his conduct towards his female others have to do with his qualification for the job?

I guess it depends on whether you include 'optics' as 'qualification' for a political job ?

Whether or not you do, though, the implicated person is a liability and has to go

I'd be pilloried if I tried for political office or even a high profile in some professions.  But I like my past, its been fun and adventurous.

Given what is coming out today about the FBI report and the WH clearly lying I think the better question to ask is: can 66 million Americans sue 62 Americans for inflicting these lying and incompetent bastards on them?

Iíve never assaulted a spouse, if thatís what youíre asking...

Participating in criminal activities has often been a line that political appointees shouldnít cross.

... that would be infringing on the domain of elected officials.

Well, some American lawyers, like Clinton special prosecutor Ken Starr, took the view that no sin was too small to overlook, even for the President of the United States.

Other American lawyers, like Baylor president Ken Starr, took the view that if their football players were good at scoring touchdowns, no sin of theirs was too great to cover up.

As an American lawyer yourself, I guess it's up to you to decide whether you share the views of Ken Starr or Ken Starr.

Nobody made El Trumpo fire Rob Porter. He could have stood by his coffee-boy to the end, if he had wanted.  Maybe Trump is, as the alt-right would say, "a cuck" for getting told what to do by some crybaby snowflake feminists. Or maybe Trump just decided that Porter's coffee isn't good enough to be worth the hassle.


"High-energy guy, works really hard, very hard worker, Rob Porter. He is terrific, he really is. He always gets my so coffee fast, he's so fast you wouldn't even believe it. Rob always gets the sugar and the creme just right, very good coffee, very good coffee, it's so good. I tell people, I have the best coffee guy, Rob Porter, he really is the best, the creme and the sugar are always just perfect. Everybody says Rob's coffee is the best, they just love it. I tell people, if the rest of this administration could work like Rob Porter, we would get so much work done, you wouldn't even believe it, it's amazing. Very good coffee guy, Rob, best coffee guy I ever had, I tell people I have the best people. You know he can even do those little swirls in the foam on your coffee that look like kittens and owls. So talented, such a talented guy. I tell people, look at these kittens on my coffee, where can you even find a coffee guy who does stuff like that for you these days? Truly, truly, wonderful.  I hope there's a great future ahead at Starbucks for Rob, I really do, I think he's terrific."
