Chapman University Loves Pain



The folks that run Chapman University sure know how to pick them, first John Yoo and now the spanking Mike Duvall.

Last year Chapman gave sanctuary to torture lawyer John Yoo, naming him the 2008-9 Fletcher Jones Distinguished Visiting Professor of Law. Now it seems that in 2000 the university gave its "Ethics in America" award to disgraced Republican state Assemblyman Mike Duvall for his "demonstration of the highest standards of ethical integrity." Whatever one thinks of Duvall's sexual interests, bragging about them to a buddy on the Assembly's Ethics Committee is hard to classify as ethical. But at least we hear that Duvall has resigned from the Assembly as he wants to put his family first.

I guess the folks at Chapman are just into pain.
