Disbarred radical lawyer Lynne Stewart is going to jail - maybe for a lot longer than she thought.

A federal appeals court Tuesday upheld her conviction for smuggling messages to her jailed terrorist client, and said she deserves more than the 28 months she got because she may have lied at her trial.

“Stewart, 70, is to surrender to U.S. Marshals immediately. “

Let’s see if she shows up.

God, I hope so—her being in jail for a long time is exactly what she deserves—actually, less.

I keep reading that obama’s bows were a sign of respect (I believe it was disgusting.). BUT, why is it one-sided?? WHERE is the respect shown from the other side?? NO ONE is asking that!

Terrorist scum.

I will make this prediction three years out:

If this fat cow doesn't die before then, Obama will pardon her on his way out the door in 2012.

He'll claim it's pity on her oldness, rather than sympathy with her cause.

Two lousy years for treason. The sentencing judge was a liberal fascist. She needs a shave.

Watch for the Obama pardon posse to get to work. I mean Bill Ayers is a hero to Obama, so watch for a pardon move.

She'll be out in 14 months, tops. "Good behavior. LOL

"Stewart's lawyers argued she was just trying to be a zealous advocate to her client, who is serving life in prison."

Oh.
So that's what 'treason's' called these days, huh. LOL

Hmmm lawyer Lynne Stewart smuggles terrorist messages from client. Sure glad KSM gets to pick his civilian attorney for federal trial. CAIR can help.
