Hugh Hewitt’s dirty little leftist

No, our mystery man is not Stephen Hawking or Joseph Fahbeetz. For one thing, those are astrophysicists, not lawyers. (Pay attention, please.) For another, Steve and Joe are much better looking.

Our mystery man is—insert drum roll sound file—Erwin Chemerinsky, law professor and author of A Long History of Briefs. That’s another difference from Hawking, who wrote A Brief History of Time. Chemerinsky is also a leftwing moonbat extraordinaire and a card-carrying board member of the smear-artist outfit, DefCon.

As you might recall, DefCon is the group dedicated to “fighting the religious right” that recently placed full-page defamatory ads in The New York Times falsely accusing James Dobson and other prominent evangelicals of receiving payoffs from Jack Abramoff. Only when confronted with the prospect of a major libel case did DefCon back off of its claims. IMHO, the parties should have sued, anyway, to put a stop to this kind of wrongdoing.

Chemerinsky is not a bit player in DefCon. He’s a principal. We have attempted to apprise Hugh Hewitt of this problem more than once, to no avail. (Hugh has responded to us on other occasions, when it suits his purposes.) That’s the only reason we’re going public.

Here’s just the latest communiqué:

Knowing what you know about Erwin Chemerinsky, having him continue on your show as a credible legal expert is not conscionable. He is a slanderer and a libeler--a card-carrying board member of that radioactive smear outfit DefCon. In case you've forgotten, here's part of that story:

Check it out. In fact, one of the reasons we’re presenting this information is in the hope that some of our dear readers might feel similarly inclined to drop Hugh a line asking him why he caters to this dangerous kook. Does Chemerinsky have some incriminating photos?

Would you consider doing that? That e-mail address would be

We’ll be presenting more about this wonderful DefCon organization in coming days. It should raise an eyebrow or two.

Roscoe - Count me in. I'll drop an email today. I read about DefCon's attacks against Dr. Dobson and was appalled. I can't understand why Hugh Hewitt continues to use this guy.
