Don Bailey – Civil Rights, “EX-
ATTORNEY” Harrisburg Pennsylvania
Why “EX” attorney in the introductory sentence above?? The answer is widely known, and quite simple. Don Bailey’s licence to practice law has been suspended for 5 years. There is no utility served unless we address the reasons for what happened in some detail. That will be done as this webpage is revised and updated.
Since there’s a great deal to do in accomplishing that task, we must visit the numerous facts and opinions explaining why Mr. Bailey’s license was suspended by the egregiously corrupt Supreme Court we’ve had here in Pennsylvania over the last decade or so, along with the equally corrupt federal judicial system, that in its own sinister fashion not only feeds their state companions but shares the trough with them.
We’re going to take a close look at them. We’re going to look at what they say and said and how they say it, but more importantly, we’re going to look at what they say and what they have said, what they do and what they have done. We have to work with some care because not all judges are dishonest though none have demonstrated the guts to speak up against what they know is wrong let alone take action against, or criticize, their crooked colleagues. We also need to be fair because there have been some new judges elected to the state Supreme Court and they should not be lumped in with the bad eggs that still sit there.
Anyway, there are disparate reasons that explain failures to update this site which are in no way are connected with the actions of the judicial oligarchy that mocks both the intent and the purpose of our beloved democracy. Don Bailey has been extremely ill and is just now getting back on his feet. He intends to devote considerable time to fighting back as he regains his health.
So Don Bailey does not practice law in Harrisburg, PA, at least as a licensed Pennsylvania attorney. Not at this time. But we shall see, we shall see. As the old saying goes there are many ways to skin a cat. In political endeavors there is not just a a romance to rebellion, there is sometimes a duty to revolt. But we shall see. Regardless, Bailey is still well known for taking on the high-profile and controversial cases all attorneys fear. These were cases where officials like abusive judges and prosecutors were impugned by the facts and by our laws.
Don always adamantly defended, as he will in the future, the United States Constitution and the rights that it was intended to provide.
Bailey is a former U.S. Congressman and Pennsylvania Auditor General. He’s most proud of being a highly decorated Vietnam War veteran and a family man.
