Illinipundit Responds

"It's not absurdity. Mr. Curry has accepted as a client a "person of interest" in the case. Both Zorn and I have blogged about it, and Mr. Curry has posted comments on my site about why he's doing it. I think it's interesting that he's working in politics and criminal cases at the same time."-says he.
How does this constitute a conflict of interest? Birkett has nothing to do with the Rhoads case. If Paris were in DuPate County, and that case had come under Birkett's jurisdiction, he would recuse himself from the case, if Mr Curry had been under both his and the "person of interest's" employ simultaneously. Yes, Virginia, politicians themselves puruse other vocations-and that could include representing criminal defendants. So, how is Mr Curry's conduct somehow less than kosher?
