More ‘Lawyers are Creepy People’ News

A lawyer for the New York state attorney general’s office has been suspended after the New York Post inquired about word that she was leading a double life as an S&M dominatrix.  Alisha Smith, 36, had been working as a prosecutor by day and as a paid performer for fetish events in her free time, the Post reports it learned from a source active in New York’s fetish world. The office suspended Smith after the Post inquired about her extracurricular activities.Smith has been suspended without pay, effective immediately, pending an internal investigation, the Post quoted an unnamed spokesman for state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman as saying.

Two words, Ms Smith, cree-py.  This is the sort of behavior one expects from Pentebabbleist preachers, mega-church pastors, Ted Haggards, and Catholic Priests, not lawyers.   [Filed under the ‘people are messed up’ category of breaking news].

Martin Luther: On Lawyers

Every lawyer is sorely vexed at me because I preach so harshly against the craft; but I say I, as a preacher, must reprove what is wrong and evil. If I reproved them, as Martin Luther, they need not regard me, but forasmuch as I do it as a servant of Christ, and speak by God’s command, they ought to hearken unto me; for if they repent not, they shall everlastingly be damned; but I, when I have declared their sins, shall be excused. If I were not constrained to give an account for their souls, I would leave them unreproved. — Martin Luther
