But, before the funny, the facts.

According to Business Insider:

The constitutional-law expert Pamela Karlan, a professor at Stanford Law School, admonished Republican Rep. Doug Collins for suggesting she hadn’t read the transcripts of witnesses in the House impeachment inquiry during her testimony before the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday. 

She didn’t waste any time letting her thoughts be known. This should make her detractors realize…

How do you feel about all of this?


Well, if you are following or not, as a queer person or ally, you should be proud to learn about Professor Pamela S. Karlan.

According to the New York Times:

Ms. Karlan, 60, received bachelor’s, master’s and law degrees from Yale and clerked for Justice Harry A. Blackmun of the Supreme Court. She is now a director of Stanford Law School’s Supreme Court Litigation Clinic. Ms. Karlan made regular media appearances discussing the 2000 presidential election and recount, and was one of the authors of “When Elections Go Bad: The Law of Democracy and the Presidential Election of 2000.”

During the Obama administration, she worked in the Justice Department’s civil rights division and received the Attorney General’s Award for Exceptional Service, the highest award employees there can earn.

Ms. Karlan has argued nine cases before the Supreme Court, most recently in October, when she argued that employees should not be fired over sexual orientation.

Notably, she is the only woman on the panel of four Constitutional Lawyers…

I am sure the president is just as unhappy about this as, well…as Senator Keeley.

She is also openly bisexual, and according to her Wikipedia:

Karlan told Politico in 2009, “It’s no secret at all that I’m counted among the LGBT crowd”.[11] She has described herself as an example of “snarky, bisexual, Jewish women”.[12] Her partner is writer Viola Canales.[13]

Hopefully, this will have you break out into an eclectic celebration of dance!
