Quote in: Indiana AG’s comments endangered abortion provider, complaint says
Susan Carle, a law professor at American University’s Washington College of Law, said disciplinary commissions have historically been wary of taking up cases concerning public officials. But the country’s highly polarized environment and the discourse it has prompted have blurred the line between law and politics — and kindled a push for accountability from bar associations across the nation.
“As the sort of level of political invective and lack of standards about truthfulness continue to become worse, there are going to be more and more efforts along these lines,” Carle said.
