It seems he forgot to pay his state bar dues. Senator Patrick Leahy is on camera railing against Griffith's disregard for "fundamentals" of legal blah blah blah. This is the big Democrat criticism of a judicial nominee? That he didn't pay his bar dues? Wow. I mean, that's just embarrasing, isn't it? --------
