    Flew too high, didn’t you Bailey

  • Anonymous

    This is ironic as Maine Bar has let most of their members get away with alot worse..not paying taxes for 8 years, protecting crooked partners, and the list goes on… taking a stand on Bailey is laughable…reference letters from Baldacci takes the cake…

      If anyone came to me looking for work, and had a reference letter from Baldacci, the applicant would be on the bottom of the pile.

        He was actually a pretty good maitre’d and was fairly good at operating the cash register too, so I think he’s probably qualified to recommend a waiter or busboy. But for jobs any more complex than that I’d have to agree that his endorsement wouldn’t put an applicant at the top of the list.

  • Anonymous

    Considering his legal issues and past behavior it says a lot about Baldacci’s own character to give him a raving endorsement. Yet it does not surprise me.

        Why not? The left does it as consistant as anyone. Slam LePage, Bush and any other figure that does not have the ideals of the liberals.

          I’d sure like to agree with you on this, but the liberals don’t have ideals.

    I think it’s time for F Lee to head to the old folks home. He’s running on fumes now. He had his day with the whole OJ mess…time to pack it in.

      Wasn’t he looking at the Dennis Dechaine case? Is that why he was looking for a Maine license?

      • Anonymous

        Yes, he was looking at “new” evidence or something in that case.

        • Yep, sorta clears things up a bit don’t it?

    It is pretty bad when a bunch of greedy, conniving thieves tell you that you are too greedy and conniving to be a member of their club! lol. Flea probably just wanted to come to Maine to chase ambulances with Joe Bornstein anyway.

      Or Steven Smith or David Bate.

  • Time to sit back, enjoy his retirement and make some new friends. He has made some mistakes, yet who hasn’t? He has also done a lot of good. Welcome to Maine, Mr. Bailey, welcome to Maine.

    Could you imagine politicians having to meet these standards and also having to pass an exam?

      QUOTE from the article……In the decent, ” they” said that Bailey had not demonstrated “by clear and convincing evidence that he has the “MORAL” qualifications, competency and learning
      in the law and has otherwise satisfied the factors established by the Maine Bar.”….. HAHAHAHA.. I am still laughing….. good Lord!!!

      90% of politicians ARE attornies!

    I know it is too much to ask that the board apply the same standards to attorneys in Maine already and disbar some of the crooks.

  • Anonymous

    I am quite certain there are far worse lawyers who have been admitted to the Bar in Maine. (but it’s a good start!)

    He must not have promised the right people the future favors that were required.

    Can’t call him “Flee” anymore. Gotta change it to “Fled”.

    • Anonymous

      I think it was “Flea”.

    Unless something else has happened I think 10 years, should be sufficient punishment.

    Why did it take a month for this to make it into the newspaper? Why didn’t the paper seek comment from Schwartz?
    Can Bailey apply again? If so, when?

    He’s a lawyer ! FFS!
    What are you hoping for.
    Looking for choirboys…. go somewhere else.

    He should be behind bars but money bought his freedom!

  • Anonymous

    I remember when he and friend of mine broke the unions in New York in the seventies, Prior to that the unions would distroy all your equiptment. They fought him tooth an nail then almost killed my friend.. It cost the unions mega millons to settle. The idiots attacked him with the media there… He retired yet other contractors always remembered what he did for them. He had Bailey for his lawyer, Yet had to hire another Lawyer to watch Bailey. LOL!!

    Funny how stealing money is seen as lack of “moral qualifications” to practice law but when a state prosecutor like Mary Kellett withholds and falsifies evidence or lies to juries to get convictions that somehow does not put “moral qualifications” to practice law in to question.

    • sail with this

      as should be, her law practicing days are numbered…IF… the bar does what it is legally obligated to do. disbar Mary Kellett for EVER!!

    Good for the State of Maine, finally some people with a backbone that will stand up to this slime ball of an attorney.

  • Anonymous

    Maybe he can get a part time gig at Walmart. It doesn’t pay much, but it’s honest work.

  • Anonymous

    I wonder who it is, that, needs an attorney of his ability here in Maine??

    • Anonymous

      Anyone who can afford him and is deep to their neck in trouble.

  • Anonymous

    Well if he’s only “formerly” high profile what do we want him for anyway.
