Kellyanne Conway’s lying might not get her fired from the White House, but she could very easily lose her license to practice law.
A group of 15 law professors has filed a professional misconduct complaint against Conway, saying she “brings shame upon the legal profession.”
The letter was filed with the office that handles misconduct by members of the Washington, D.C. BAR to which Conway was admitted in 1995.
“We do not file this complaint lightly. We believe that at one time, Ms. Conway understood her ethical responsibilities as a lawyer and abided by them. But she is currently acting in a way that brings shame upon the legal profession, conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation.”
Conway is listed as a D.C. bar member under her maiden name, Kellyanne E. Fitzpatrick, though the George Washington University Law School graduate is currently a suspended member for not paying her dues.
The letter was sent to the D.C. Office of Disciplinary Counsel, the chief prosecutor for disciplinary matters that involve active or inactive attorneys who are D.C. bar members.
Professors from law schools including Yale, Georgetown and Duke signed the letter, which cites several recent controversies involving Conway as evidence.
One mentions Conway’s remarks about a non-existent “massacre” in Bowling Green, Kentucky, earlier this month.
Another citation references Conway promoting merchandise associated with Ivanka Trump during a Fox News interview in early February.
