June 8, 2016 (Mimesis Law) - When Ed Sheehy, ran for the Montana Supreme Court in 2012, he was greeted by attack ads that stated "...Sheehy’s work as a state public defender in a high-profile death penalty case several years earlier, arguing that it showed the lawyer had “activist values” unsuitable for the state’s highest court."

April 13, 2016 (Mimesis Law) -

enforcement, interviewed neighbors, and told her readers what she learned. And then the trouble started.

Ken "Popehat" White sits down with Lee to discuss Hilde Lysiak and how maybe the crime reporting media at large has something to learn from her.
