Asbestos lawsuit trial lawyer Fred Baron of Dallas might wish he has some of that magic material, given the heat he’s getting for paying hush-money, er “assistance” to liberal former senator/presidential candidate John Edwards’ mistress. It’s unclear how much he paid out, but he has been on the chief underwriters of the left in Texas — spending $1.82 million in this election season alone.

According to Texans for Lawsuit Reform, Baron’s crusade against asbestos bankrupted 70 companies, trading on clients who didn’t have any “discernible health impairments.”

It’s pretty clear Baron has a few moral impairments. But I did already mention he was a trial lawyer.
