That last part apparently didn't sit right with Ingraham, who called the GSA "cheerleaders for latent campus sodomites," so she published a transcript including the students' names, back in a time and place when it was more socially acceptable to be a communist spy than openly gay. Students who were out of the closet got death threats and "had their dorm doors urinated under," and thanks to Ingraham, that number increased significantly.
She expressed remorse for her actions in 1997, and for the fact that her stunts "undermined our political point" (the worst part, obvs). That's the power of hindsight. We can't wait for her editorial in 2030 about how the whole "celebrating baby jails" thing might have been a bit much.
Popular Twitter Lawyer Seth Abramson Isn't A Practicing Attorney
If you've spent any time on Twitter, you'll know the name Seth Abramson -- if not for the rash-like frenzy with which he posts, then for his chief schtick of writing excruciating fanfiction for the #resistance in the form of 100-plus-tweet threads about how the Trump administration is a mere Robert Mueller sneeze away from crumbling into dust. His success rate with such legal forecasts isn't great, and that's a little weird, because he describes himself as a "professor [and] attorney." You'd think someone with that experience would have a batting average better than a roomful of monkeys with typewriters, so what gives?
Well, as The Daily Beast notes, Abramson likes to qualify his tweetgasms with the phrase "as an attorney," but ... that's a little outdated. He hasn't practiced law in over a decade (his bar membership is currently inactive), and even then, his experience amounts to working as a public defender, not in the realm of federal law. That seems kind of relevant when you're tweeting about how some small legal detail means the entire government is totally going down this time, you guys.
