More About Specter

When I wrote about Specter for NR, my editors gave me a lot of space for the article–but sections nonetheless were cut. This is typical in journalism, of course. A couple of paragraphs in my original version described how Specter served as defense attorney for a well-known accused murderer, Ira Einhorn. Specter had the man’s bail reduced. Einhorn promptly fled the country and was only recently brought to justice. (I’ll give you one guess as to where he was hiding. If you want a hint, go here.) Last spring, I wrote a full piece on the Specter-Einhorn connection for NRO here.
