Flop of Tort

Right-wing Mississippi blogger Alan Lange and his lying co-author, former Assistant U.S. Attorney of the Northern District of Mississippi Tom Dawson, self-published a 288-page book that has flopped titled, Kings of Tort.

Sources tell us sales were so awful that each author has lost a huge chunk of change and the only ones to make money on the deal were the owners of Pediment Publishing.

The co-authors, members of the Rove Republican Racket, relied on inside knowledge and set up the idea of writing the book while Dawson was still serving as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the fall of 2008. Days after retiring in January of 2009, Dawson obtained a secret six-month (book writing?) contract from then-U.S. Attorney Jim H. Greenlee.

Dawson, a former protege of Ken Starr, tells media that he only worked two-days a week on contract and was serving in a "consiglieri" position like in the movie The Godfather.

As they would say in Italy, bugiardo!

Dawson was intricately and centrally involved in plea deals involving a corrupt lawyer and state judge while serving supposedly as a "consiglieri" for the Rove Republican Mafia.

As one reader put it, "Dawson acts like he was the grandfatherly advisor two days a week in Oxford [Mississippi]. He should add a rocking chair and pipe to his bullshit story."

The only thing the Flop of Tort has produced is questions, lots of questions, including the suspicion that a federal employee on the clock was used to help write the book.  The book is about the prosecution of two well-known Democrats: trial lawyer Dickie Scruggs and fundraiser Paul Minor.

Besides being a flop, the book has had disastrous implications about the professional ethics of Dawson and his supervisors in the U.S. Department of Justice.

With a hefty debt and hundreds of copies in storage, sometimes Lange and Dawson may feel they are waking up with a bloody horse's head in their bed, only to realize the nightmare was caused by their own, self-aggrandizing egos.
