Ahhhh, So THAT's what they teach at Harvard Law School...

As Harvard Law School's reputation continues to tarnish what with the likes of President BamBam's weak grasp of foundational constitutional principles, and its 1/32 Cherokee Prof Lizzie Warren's ethical challenges, now comes word that another less than illustrious graduate of the Law School has been arrested in connection with a $100 Million phony charity scam.
