story of the Joseph Martin, an Illinois attorney and lobbyist for native American tribes, disciplined after threatening to violently turn a client's representative into a popsicle. Here's Mike Frisch's account:
During the Tribal Council meeting [ed. the lawyer is the legislative lobbyist for the tribal council, Attorney Martin] entered the meeting room and inquired about the nature of the Tribal Council's discussions.
Upon learning that the discussions pertained to who had authority to terminate [Martin's] employment contract, Respondent [Martin] told the Tribal Council that he would sue them if his employment contract was terminated.
When Norbert Kelsey, one of the Tribal Council members, expressed concern to Respondent regarding Respondent's threat to file a suit against the LRBOI, Respondent referred to Councilman Kelsey as a "joke."
After Councilman Kelsey left the room, [Mr. Martin] made the following statements to the remaining Tribal Council Members about Councilman Kelsey:
"I will fucking kill that god damn pervert. I will kill him. If he thinks I won't I'll take that fucking cane of his and shove it right up his ass. Make him into a popsicle. I'm sick of his shit. Questioning me saying I was a token at Northwestern...
I'll kill his ass."
For this, Martin receives only a reprimand. Pretty sweet.
