    AMERICA'S VANCOUVER, WASHINGTON An attorney representing embattled state Rep.

Dunn, R-Vancouver, was booted off his three legislative committees after he made offensive comments to a female staff member last month in a Kennewick hotel bar. *SNIP* "I just want the truth out," Dunn said. "I still think I have the right to be a person, to be stupid." **SCHNIPP** Another quote came immediately to mind this morning when I read this in my morning paper...

    SAN FRANCISCO - California’s attorney general announced indictments Wednesday against Hewlett-Packard’s ousted chairwoman Patricia Dunn and former ethics lawyer Kevin Hunsaker for their roles in a snowballing boardroom espionage scandal. “In this misguided effort, people inside and outside HP violated privacy rights and broke state law. Those who cross the legal line must be held accountable,” Attorney General Bill Lockyer told reporters. Three private detectives involved in the US computer equipment giant’s alleged spying operations were also indicted, Lockyer said. Dunn and Hunsaker were indicted along with Ronald DeLia, Matthew Depante and Bryan Wagner, Lockyer said at a press conference...

    Excerpt - Don't blame Hewlett-Packard Chairman Patricia Dunn, her new lawyer said Wednesday, for the convulsions the company's board have suffered in the wake of its troubled investigation of boardroom leaks. "She's neither a lawyer nor is she an investigator," said James Brosnahan, the Morrison & Foerster litigator whom Dunn hired this week. "And she's not the kind of person, frankly, who would advise people to do something illegal." Dunn has come under scrutiny for her role in directing the troubled probe -- The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday that she closely supervised it -- and she's the latest figure...

    SAN FRANCISCO Extending beyond the skullduggery that pried loose people's private phone records, Hewlett-Packard Co. investigators hunting for a boardroom leak shadowed the company's directors and tried to install snooping software on at least one reporter's computer, according to published reports. While the additional surveillance reported by The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal may provoke more indignation about HP's probe, the tactics aren't likely to shift the focus of the inquiries into whether the company and its investigators broke any laws in their quest to identify the boardroom leaker. Authorities and politicians remain primarily concerned about the...

    Claremont McKenna president Pamela Gann said the college will honor its agreement to pay for a rental car for Kerri Dunn so she can drive to work. The college has offered to pay for the car repairs. The vandalism came after a series of race-related incidents at the colleges over the past few months, including a cross-burning at Harvey Mudd College in January. The cross-burning, which also prompted rallies and demonstrations, was determined to have been the work of drunken students who claimed they did not realize that burning a cross had racial significance. Dunn has had a few minor...
  • The Reichstag gambit - Another Campus Hate Crime Hoax

    March 18, 2004 The Reichstag gambit The twentieth century's vilest totalitarian regimes perfected several techniques for the control of civilian populations. Among these techniques is the commission of a horrible crime together with the attribution of responsibility for the crime to political enemies. Perhaps the most famous example of this technique is the incident involving the burning of the Reichstag in late February 1933. Hitler and the Nazis immediately accused the Communists of setting the fire. A great deal of evidence collected and analyzed by Walther Hoferand and others, however, points in the direction of the Nazis themselves. (See, e.g.,...

  • Claremont McKenna is not a conservative school.

    03/17/2004 9:51:05 PM PST · by watsonfellow · 24 replies · 228+ views
    First, the Claremont Institute is not officially affiliated with Claremont McKenna College. It was founded by former students of Professor Jaffa when he was given the boot by CMC. CMC's reputation as a "conservative" school is vastly overrated. Only a third of the faculty is conservative and they are constantly under attack by the left-wing majority of faculty. Indeed, there is no western civ. requirement at CMC, making it therefore slightly less conservative than even Colombia. Food for thought.
