The list of female managing partners of law firms is shorter by one. Mercedes Colwin was removed from that post at Gordon Rees Scully Mansukhani’s New York office after she appeared on Fox News to talk about Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, who appears to have pursued sexual relationships with teenage girls when he was a prosecutor in his thirties.

On air last week she told host Sean Hannity that women make up sexual harassment claims in order to milk money from corporations. That was a little too extreme for Hannity, who said, “there are women who are victims of predators.” “They’re very few and far between,” was Colwin’s rejoinder.

    The sad thing is she is probably correct and is being punished for speaking the truth. I knew someone who did it. I have no idea where she is today since I dumped her as a friend. In any event, that sort of thing is disgusting. It ruins the lives of innocent people when they are falsely accused. But no one seems worry too much about that. I just really would like to know the political affiliation of Judge Moore’s accusers. I expect that in and of itself would be very telling. What I don’t get is the outrage especially when you consider that Bill Clinton was accused of several violent rapes. Those were laughed at and written off as Bimbo eruptions by both the Clintons and the media.
