Well, it's not like she went to legislative hearings and randomly claimed that her bar membership supported some half-baked Democratic "assault weapons" measure. Still, I guess this is what people mean by "pulling a Bonar."

I wonder if she's related to John Boehner. The spelling could have been changed to make it easier for the kids to tell their elementary school teachers.

Public reprimand? What does it take to get an actual punishment in KY?

The longtime joke is: Stealing money or failing to pay your bar dues.

If they steal money, but use it to pay their bar dues, is that considered in mitigation?

Wow a reprimand. Wow. No further comment

But if a male solo of no power and influence sleeps with a woman in exchange for writing a letter to a mechanic to obtain a $50 refund, only at least a year's suspension will do.

Ah, the benefits of being a member of the patriarchy. Where is the usual feminist outrage?

She disregarded KRS rules and fradulantly took guardianship of a brother who lives independently.

Note: she made the motion for herself to be reprimanded.
Perhaps the punishment should be to require her to pay for large ads on the sides of city buses or the back of the phonebook, statiing 'Do Not Call Me, I was publicly reprimanded for ethical charges.'
