“But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger”
Faisal Gill is apparently not tired of public scrutiny. He has served in some capacity on the Steve Chapman campaign and hosted a fundraiser for Chapman, and has since decided to take on the task of exacting revenge on BVBL for the effect he had on the race. After having his junior attorney send BVBL a laughably unprofessional threat, he has now been calling around trying to uncover the identity of Black Velvet Bruce Lee and making liberal use of legal threats in order to coerce information. I have no indication that this is being done at Steve Chapman’s behest.
Only Faisal Gill is not licensed to practice law in Virginia. This hasn’t escaped the attention of Jaded JD, who provides exhaustive analysis of multiple potential breaches of professional conduct in his post What a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive. My guess is that Faisal is going to be answering a lot of questions pretty soon.
You’d think that someone who has already appeared on the radar screens of Michelle Malkin, Jihad Watch and Salon.com regarding a failure to disclose some potentially shady connections while employed with the Department of Homeland Security would be a little more deliberate about what he does. But when you’re after vengeance, and have a law degree, I suppose the allure of acting as an attorney in a professional capacity is hard to deny. It’s the “if your only tool is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail” problem.
Now I’ve met Faisal, and he seemed like a nice guy to me, and I just can’t figure out how that nice guy would want to do all of this. My hope is that soon we can put to rest all the loose ends of the Steve Chapman campaign, come together and work hard to ensure we get good representation in the House of Delegates come September.
My thanks to Jaded JD, who if nothing else restores my confidence in those who practice law, which was beginning to look pretty sordid. And who picks some awesome post titles.
And BVBL, if you’re out there, snail mail me a copy of that nice letter you got from Jad.
