Thomas B. Griffith, Knucklehead.: "President Bush's most recent nominee to the federal appeals court in Washington practiced law for three years in the District without a valid license because he did not pay his annual dues to the local bar association. "

The article in the Washington Post adds:
"During that period, Griffith was the legal counsel representing the Senate in the impeachment trial of President Bill Clinton, in 1998 and 1999 and a partner in the D.C. law firm of Wiley Rein & Fielding in 1999 and 2000.

Griffith, who now is general counsel for Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, and whom Bush nominated last month to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, declined to comment on his licensing lapse when reached by telephone yesterday. "
