Brewer Hires Conservative Superlawyer To Defend SB 1070 | Gov. Jan Brewer (R) announced today that she has hired former Solicitor General Paul Clement, one of the nation’s top appellate litigators, to defend her state’s unconstitutional immigration law. Clement has emerged as the right’s go to lawyer to defend its most indefensible policies, despite the fact that he is also one of the most expensive lawyers in the country. Clement is presently charging the American taxpayer $520/hr to defend the unconstitutional Defense of Marriage Act — which actually amounts to a discount from his normal rate. He will also argue against the Affordable Care Act later this week.
