The System Works: Lynn Stewart Gets 10 Years

A great day for freedom, and for America, in the never-ending war with the Left: Lynn Stewart's jail sentence was not just upheld, it quintupled after the judge did some math and realized he forgot to carry the one. And there was much rending of garments: Attorney Who Helped Terrorist Gets 10 Years In Prison

A judge had resentenced a 70-year-old civil rights lawyer to 10 years in prison for letting a jailed Egyptian sheik communicate with his radical followers.

Federal Judge John Koeltl sentenced Lynne Stewart in Manhattan after she pleaded with him to reimpose the two-year, four-month sentence he had originally given her in 2006. She said she has been diminished since her November imprisonment.

An appeals court had ordered a new sentencing, saying the judge needed to consider whether she committed perjury. Koeltl says she did and he says she lacked remorse after her first sentencing.

Lacked remorse? That's putting it mildly. She was running around talking about George W. Hitlerburton's Amerikkka, lapping up applause and $$ from law schools and universities around the country. She obviously thought she did nothing wrong and that the simps at the appellate level would never let a fellow attorney go to jail. Instead, they threw the book at her.

There are plenty of radical lawyers out there who love to adopt the pose of the noble fighter for truth, but Stewart was a real menace to society who actively facilitated communications between her terrorist client and his followers. Who knows how many of those messages resulted in the deaths of innocents. Funny how none of her fellow progressives have wondered what caused her to risk criminal liability on behalf of an Egyptian terrorist, something she (apparently, but who knows...) never did for her western radical clients. And, too bad we can't find out who (cough) Saudis (cough) was paying her enough money to take such a step.
