Criminal Justice Professor's Journey From Prosecutor to Defender
"Read Barry a little bit about your bio, your CV. You have been doing this for a long time. You have a great background in this for over three and a half decades. Barry latzer was a Professor of criminal justice at John Jay college, a member of the masters and doctoral faculties. He taught courses on criminal justice criminal law procedure state constitutional law, capital punishment, and most recently crime history. You've been written up. You're writings have appeared in The Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, New York Post, New York Daily News. Interesting piece, though, that I picked up Barry was that you were the you were served as an assistant district attorney in Brooklyn in 85 and 86, and you would counsel to indigent criminal defendants in Manhattan. I can't help but think that that was a very interesting experience. So these were folks that couldn't afford defense, right? And you stepped up on their behalf. I know this is sort of a side Barry, but does that inform kind of what you're talking about now? I mean, what did you learn from those people? Sure. I was a professor for most of my life, and I said, you know what? I can't get all of the knowledge I need out of a book. And I asked my chairman at the time, I want to take a leave of absence and I want to go work as a district attorney. And I did. And I did in Brooklyn during the crack years. You can imagine how busy we were. And then after that, I went and worked in Manhattan and I signed up there's a list of lawyers who will serve indigent defendants, people accused of crime, and I worked on that side of the aisle, so to speak,

Bills Intended to Shame and Scare Transgender Students Are Despicable?
"Read to you from the Los Angeles Times whose editorial board seems to be composed largely or exclusively. Of fools. I have no other term for their latest editorial. It's called bills intended to shame and scare transgender students are despicable. It is remarkable the lying that is comes with such ease to all leftists. Not all liberals, not all conservatives, but all leftists. There is a bill to shame and scare transgender students. The bill, which, of course, has no chance, because there is only Democrats controlling the two houses of the California, legislature, and of course the governor is a Democrat. So there's no chance it could pass its symbolic to show those who care about children. The amount of damage that the Democrats are doing to children. But they pay no price, they were the ones who advocated closure of schools that has led to far lower abilities intellectually among children in all these states. And has led to severe depression at rates never seen before in American history, but they know they don't pay a price because, as I wrote 30 years ago, being on the left means never having to say you're sorry. Do they still think the lockdowns of schools were right, by the way, I think, as at LA teachers are on strike? Is that correct? Yes. In sympathy for other strikers. Teachers unions care about children. As much as I never can fill in the rest of the sentence,

"With the support of 62% of Latino voters, but still two points lower than his first election in 2018, according to the Los Angeles Times. In Pennsylvania, Kumar says Latino support was strong for Democrat, John fetterman. In betterment race and this is according to exit polling that came out of March for our lives. 79% of Latino voted for a Democrat in this past election. And findings from research firm equus show solid support for Democrats from Latino voters in places like Nevada and Arizona in 2022. Yet still representative cuellar feels the party needs to step up their game. Some of us for many years have said to the nationals Detroit DNC and the state parties we've said, hey guys, we can not take Hispanics for granted. Usually the effort was let's start after Labor Day, 60 days or so before the election. And then let's start pushing that. Latino victories Gutierrez says politicians need to remember that Latinos are not a monolith. Latinos in Texas and California in Florida are all very different and have very different lived experiences and backgrounds. And therefore, they're both are going to be different at times. Lucio points to the topic of abortion and how the support for pro life policies can vary culturally from state to state. You have a large Mexican population in Texas and a legal voting population of Mexicans in Texas. And in Mexico, abortion was really, for the most part, illegal, all the way up until the end of 2020, 2021. So that's a losing battle if you're pushing a pro life policy for a Mexican population. But that didn't work so well when you look at New Mexico because New Mexico is more of a Spanish Hispanic type of voting bloc. When it comes to immigration, Latinos are torn between providing a path to citizenship and illegal immigration. A New York Times Sienna college poll shows about 55% of Latinos support Democrats on legal immigration and roughly a third support a border wall, the same poll shows that while Democrats maintain a majority of Latino voters, younger male Hispanics, especially in the south, appear to be drifting away from the party due to economic concerns. So could a shift in the Latino vote be significant enough to change the political landscape of swing states with large Latino populations. Absolutely, 'cause you're looking at purple states right now, you know, bluish purple states for the most part. And you flip Arizona, you flip Nevada and you start flipping a couple of little

"I don't believe that this date ship tell a parent whether or not a child should be vaccinated. I think that's an intrusion of state power. Thomas jefferson warned about a trading freedom for public safety. And i think he was white. That's california gubernatorial candidate. Larry elder speaking with the editorial board of the l. a. times last month the way california's gubernatorial recall election works. Voters will have two questions to answer by september fourteenth the first one is straightforward should gavin newsom be recalled if it majority of california voters. Choose no then. The second question becomes moot but it's that second question that's getting people simultaneously excited and frightened that one ask voters that if newsome is recalled who should replace them. Forty forty-six people are on that ballot including elder and he has led his rivals by a huge margin ever since he announced his candidacy in july. Those same polls have seen support for newsom shrink over the past year and the idea of elder as governor has a democratic party pleading with its base to reject the recall. Erica d smith. Is my fellow metro columnist at the la times. She like most of us. La times columnist right now is covering the california recall. Erica welcome back to the times. Thanks for having me. So elder says that his upbringing in south central los angeles is what led him to embrace conservativism. even though black conservatives are rare. what's the story. yeah. I mean he's a guy who grew up in south central. La you know as a teenager right after the watts rebellion and so he tells the story of how he was brought up by his parents. His dad was a republican is mom was a democrat. And so he's tell stories in his books about himself about how his household was pretty abusive. He did not get along with his dad at all. His mom was more of the heart of the family but he got busted one point two white school to kind of pursue some studies and came back and was very disappointed. This is according to his book that he wasn't going to get the same opportunities a lot of the white kids and his mom basically responded that you need to find a way around that you know he did succeed he to ivy league school. He ended up in cleveland. Ohio started to show their after being an attorney and starting a firm ended up back in southern california. And is kind of been here ever since antagonizing folks. There was one story that he told l. a. times editorial board that it's been getting a lot of attention about how as a teenager. He got stopped by police. According to him between seventy five and one hundred times just in one year but elder didn't tribu all of that to racism. No he said it was because he looked young. I looked young. That's what the officers said over and over and over again. I look young. And i did look. They were polite once. I showed them the license issue was over. I wasn't beaten wasn't taste. I wasn't thrown against the wall. I was treated politely. Because i responded like and that's one of the problems. I think some of these so-called civil rights leaders so called people who were activists should tell people be polite comply. Jacob land could have been avoided. Had he complied. Eric garner could have been afforded had complied. Michael brown could have been avoided. Had he comply most of these high profile shootings in deaths could have been avoided if the person stop simply head complied. What does that anecdote show about. Elders worldview i think chance does it. It goes out of his way to kind of downplay. The role that race plays in society even at the point of when racism is just so obvious. He pretends that he doesn't see it. And i think that goes back to what he was saying about his parents in about this idea that if hard work and determination can help you get you anywhere. And that racism while it may exist doesn't really preclude you from doing anything that you want in life and i think that this incident where he's literally being pulled over clearly for racist purposes. He just pretends that that's not had nothing to do with it. It's like he created a narrative for himself and no matter what the evidence may show. He's gonna stick to that narrative and in his narrative. Racism is not the big deal. Almost everyone else makes it out to be. No i mean. I think he's a person that doesn't believe systemic. Racism exists at all just by that statement alone. He's basically saying that. Racism has no big role in society that keeps people from getting where they want to be for doing what they wanna do. That's non an obstacle. And i think that that is something that no matter. What the facts show no matter what reality shows. He continues to say that in believed that an exercise at all of his policy decisions that he talks about on the radio and that perspective gave him that career and talk radio. It's lasted what this point over thirty years. And he was a part of wave of southern california talk show host at influence american conservatism. In a big way. We're talking about people like hugh hewitt dennis prager. Who gave larry his first Chance in radio ben shapiro. Larry elder even ended up proclaiming himself the sage from south central but he also was never the biggest star. No he wasn't the biggest star. But i think that he's always aspired to be the biggest star and i think we've seen that particularly in recent years where he's become a regular commentator on fox news he's got his live streaming service in his show that he goes out. He's got a massive Twitter following facebook following on social media. I think he's really ridden. This wave of this link between conservatism and trumpism and you know online social media and honing that audience. And he's done that probably better than most people that are out there right now and i.

We begin today's show with an afghan college lecturer who's decided to stay in kabul while he helps others leave. His name is obey the law but here he just wrote a piece for the australian family review titled my family fought alongside the taliban. But i'm afraid for my friends. He begins the piece by writing when kabul fell on sunday. My father went on live. Tv to congratulate the taliban on their glorious victory. as i watched him praise the jihadists. My phone buzzed with panic. Messages from friends who are terrified that taliban fighters would kill them in their homes. Abide laws grandfather school dane. Hekmatyar one of afghanistan's most notorious warlords. He was once nicknamed the butcher of kabul. His father was jailed at a cia torture site as well as the baghram.

There's so much to talk about. But if you could start by saying why you have made the decision to stay in kabul as you help so many of your friends try to race to kabul airport to leave and then talk about how that fits into your family's history. Thank you for having me amy. Nermeen lucky enough to talk to nermeen. Not then after the initial fall of kabul But we sort of with everything that was going on. It was difficult to stay in touch.

And i know it's bleak but I'm helping my friends who are under a physical threat. I have students who are reaching out to me who i have conversations with an when i understand that they aren't under an immediate threat. I do encourage them to stay in the country. Because this country needs more educated people the ministries are gallstones.

"From the abraham lincoln radio studio at the george washington broadcast center. Jack armstrong and joe armstrong and getty show. I think this is important. Their elders running away with this on the other side. I just hope folks level seven. What could happen on election day. If we don't turn out in a store numbers to vote no on this thing about the judges he the point who would he have appointed to replace khama harrison. Us how would that impact injector this country. What would this mean the future of the democratic party. So that's gavin. Newsom the governor of california four now as we're just weeks away from a recall election in california because they california has too much democracy constantly voting on everything and then regularly being overturned by a judge somewhere. But anyway i'm all for gavin newsom getting recall what what's the main instigator of the recall. You gotta look at the early dinner. We had by far. It's the dinner at the french laundry and it's not just it's all. It's everything about that freaking picture in that scene. It's not just the fact that you ordered us. All to wear masks and businesses to shut down and people are losing their livelihood and you went to a restaurant that gets to be open. And everybody's not wear masks. Remember he was at a birthday party for a rich contributor. So just the fact that the governor shows up for this guy who've never heard of because he throws around so much money you got to be this dudes birthday party if you want to keep the checks rolling in and you're all sitting around with no mass on ignoring law rules that you make for the rest of us. I mean the more. I talk about it in. Remember it more pissed off i get more will be gets recalled just for that dinner if only for that just a beat back people like him a little bit. You don't get to do anything you want. you get to do. Most of what you want and people don't pay any attention unfortunately but apparently there is a line where you can't just do anything you want so get that f. outta here short. Sometimes it's extremely difficult for we the people to actually land a punch on these super alight. And this is a chance to do that. Let's not forget. He crushed the souls of the children at the behest of the teacher's union. Who wanted their little hearts for their bargaining power and he's just a slave to some of the most evil people on the planet and he does it with a smile on his face while his kids were in school. Yeah oh speaking of landing punches man. I tweeted a tweeted a video of a fracas at a football game day. That's a los angeles a los angeles with the chargers in the rams it right right exactly. Yeah quite the fracas gotta follow us on twitter. We're not tweeting much these days but some say there's no passion in los angeles pro football and it didn't have any for a while because the los angeles say just everybody's surfing the movie stars. They don't care about the nfl. Look at those passionate fans they care about their teams enough to fight. Each other is fat drunk guys. Exactly the one fat drunk. I decided to fight five guys and it goes about expected to anyway fans brutality. Where where we i. Yes gavin newsom. Who is suing to get the words. Republican power grab on the official voting guide and also suing because his people forgot to put democratic party next to his name so he's suing that put on late in defiance of the laws so anyway back to the cal. Unit cornea dust up well. They're clearly scared of larry elder who is a right wing talk show host. That's probably how you know him. And i know somebody in the elder campaign who says it has been s show for the last week or so as all kinds of different shots are coming from all kinds of different places like a seems to be somewhat unhinged former girlfriend or wife. Or whatever who says the brandished again. I think that story is over when she got finally got interviewed. It kind of fell apart as these things often do. Here's tucker carlson talking about one. La times hit piece on mr elder. He says he doesn't believe sanctuary. Laws or citizenship for dreamers Should be happening. He's against in-state tuition healthcare and driver's licenses for the undocumented. How serious are the chances that this guy could be the next governor of california very serious because of possible that the the the majority of the people who are gonna turn out are the people were excited by leary. Elders brand of extreme far-right beliefs and represents an incredible threat to immigrant rights and racial justice immense progress that california has made on these issues and it would set a catastrophic precedent that would reverberate across the country iran. This is a black man and it just goes to show you that it is true that even people of color can be influenced by white supremacists narratives and fall victim to it right. Read and gene guerrero who's a writer for the l. a. times just absolutely wedding themselves with horror over the. How many times are you gonna claim. Somebody's the next hitler or it would be a catastrophe that will echo across the. I mean i'll tell you how i'll tell you. How many times as long as it continues to work freaking just. It's all just so tiring man. Joy reid with larry elder takes over and all my gosh immigrant's rights people of color. Oh my gosh where. We'll be as governor for fifteen months in a legislature controlled completely by democrats back alley abortions mass deportations the return of slavery. It's all going to happen. Anyways trotted out the white supremacy idiocies. We could go to the tucker clip if we want so. That was a guerrero the times l. a. times hit piece or been several last week. Here's tucker talking about that. Include forty one. Here's an actual wind from the story produced by the so-called news division of the la times quote. One issue was elders pronunciation of the n. Word houston exaggerated tone enunciating. The er at the end of the word rather than using the a pronunciation which is more commonly accepted among and used by black people. Studies have shown studies have shown really studies done by which researchers in which social science that pretoria and who exactly is funding these studies on the n. Word and how it's pronounced so they're actually making a run at larry. Elder black man is a white supremacist. Actually attempting that and may be getting somewhere with it. But i mean that's that's where we are with our politics. It's so crazy. No wonder people check out. And don't follow any of this stuff right right well it. Just it also illustrates the other inanity of the whole You know social justice critical race theory equity crowd in that if you support any institutions you support the united states you disagree with them in short. You are a white supremacist. Okay that's fine. this is stupid. it's unfair. It's racist but if that's your thing that your thing but they include black people in that if you're a black person you disagree with them you a white supremacist. That is hilarious. The black face of white supremacy. That was the article in the la times you that that couldn't have run. I don't even think five years ago let alone twenty years ago because it would just seems too stupid. Yeah that gene guerrero girl is mentally ill. I mean at some point. Your ideology makes you crazy witness. Jonestown massacre and things like that ideology can cause mental illnesses and.

"Or if are team tom It's very hard to extricate south so that to me is seems to be what's behind the car crash narrative. I agree with you and now. What are the legal issues. They're facing now. What is the the latest update here. We are you know towards the end of august. And you have you know as i mentioned britain a ton of articles since then where what. What story angle are you kind of following right now. What's the next thing to look forward to see proceedings all about trying to find where the money went what assets are left liquidating them giving them to the creditors that are you know people that didn't get the money that some of them In that process takes generally years So they're really in the think process right now and all the Twitter jawing between erica. Jane's turning ronald richards is about that because he has been hired like a special counsel to try to sign all any money any assets of the durrani state of the firm. That are somehow made their way to erica's possession. She doesn't have to be aware that they were they belonged is letters anything else like. She just has to have them to be clothing. It'd be stocks bonds. It could be jewelry. Whatever so his job is to find that stuff and he wants to push her. He wants to question. This is manager anybody who has anything to do with her or older her rear and she has hired a new iron sort of taking a new tack in his said. Like i have nothing to hide. I will answer all your questions bring it. I mean that's what her lawyers were saying legally on twitter she and the statistic site all day long. It seems And she's made efforts scam remove that they've been unsuccessful but we're really right now in the find the money fines any little pot of are there offshore accounts. Does she have a wardrobe of. I whatever it is. All all that needs to be brought together liquidated and the money given to the long line of people that are owed money by girardi at germ loss along those lines. They have already sold it. One of the to law offices a downtown. La the pasadena. State is on the market. There's actually can be an auction in coming days for some of the contents of tom. Charities law office are you could purchase or put a bid on all this memorabilia that was on the walls or cadillac. That is owned by the firm or chin. General office supplies like a dolly. Or you know some statues so bad. Now that's online and that will go to creditors of the Kice bankruptcy proceedings. There's also Within chicago is which is where the indonesian plane crash case. Is you know whether to lawyers in tom. Charities law firm will be held in contempt. There's a hearing. I believe next month where there will be a lot of. i expect. There will be a lot of evidence aired about the law firm in how it operated And and whether these lawyers have some culpability Or more face legal consequences for what happened in the Misappropriation of the money that went to the supposed to go to these indonesian orphans. Widows by the way. The auction items are atrocious. I don't know if you scroll through. I'm like you guys food decorated your law offices with the furniture from staples like that makes no sense to me. He'd have a beautiful artwork in his home. And then have like a desk that you could get at salvation army. They mean it makes sense to be the you know. Tom was is homeless. Beautiful obviously and he lives lavish life. He had two plans. The people who worked in the law firm did not enjoy nearly as nice of a lifestyle. I mean i think some were paid well but many have described it as golden handcuffs where they were surrounded by this aura of power and wealth but it was never enough to leave And it was quite painful to leave. And tom could be very about it as well. Firm but So i can how. Tom skimped on office supplies to say the least what a case. I mean who would have thought if. I bugged you a year ago about this. She'd be like real housewives. What and now. I feel like you know your extra characters the season i mean you. Don't hold a diamond but connie like get your friends of the season. I hope that they send you a basket. It's i mean what if you made us. Sales are a. I think it's so. I'm excited to watch it every week because i feel like it's just like where's waldo like where you're just looking for every episode for the luxury items. You're paying attention to every little thing she says. I suspect part of the reason she got quite upset and went into the room and kreider face off is because she slipped up and she realized that she had said too much. Because one was -ssume that if you're wearing a mike and you're filming a reality show that everything is pretty much fair game. But i think that she had a moment where she either had a moment of clarity or she had a quick phone call with the attorneys and she panicked. And i think that that's what we're watching so i mean for me. It's enormously interesting. The classes misuse the legal issues. The friendship dynamics the way that sutton is question need bangs Why the others are not I mean you could just unpack this show for weeks and weeks. It's just a really fascinating thing. And i think back often to my interview with alex baskin at the beginning of the season. Like what can we look forward to. And i did ask. Are you at all frayed. That some of the footage will be used That you'll have to turn it over. And they said he said you know i. We all went into the season. And i said just. That's our job is adjust film and we can't think about if something You know rearranging around. Someone's legal case. We are just come. We shall the cameras and then we leave and worry about all of that later. So i just look forward to the next couple of episodes. We have heard actually during the course reporting the fault. They were recording. But i don't think we we knew for sure So it's it's been quite a ride quite a ride okay. Well will you promise me that you will continue to cover. This promise is dog dog reporters at a for. Yeah you are now made editor and feel free to text me like if you get access to old Cell phone photos that she's pissed about an affair and you don't. You're not sure right about it yet. You can always on them to me. I can do them. By the way what happens to that woman tricia that was accused of having affairs sheep onto hiding. Where is she now on the bench. She's a justice in in california as she hired a big attorney to send A cease-and-desist order. She said she's getting like a million calls from crazy erica supporters.

"He's watch each episode with one eyebrow. Raise so for you guys you. Are you watching it just to match up the time line but are also watching to hear the little comment. She makes for example when she admitted in the last episode that tom calls her. Does that shape your the way that you're looking at this case in how you may cover it going forward. I think it for folded voicemails. That thomas leaving erica. That doesn't shock me at all. Thomas been calling a lot of people leaving voicemails You know attorneys have said that he had been calling people. He had money to lawyers for saying he was calling leaving messages which they filed in court. So tom and his phone usage wasn't surprised team. What was surprising was how erica reacted to it. i was it. Was someone Perplexing to me as viewer why first of all she said that while being filmed you know in the first place to carcelle in crystals. So i don't know why you would suddenly react poorly to the sharing of it within a larger group because you have cameras and a microphone on it. Just it was somewhat mind boggling and i i wondered if there was more there but in general dancer question. I'm i'm watching the show with a lot of interests. I think it is interesting to see a subject of your story in respond to in real time or or people around them and it's in from a journalistic perspective it's You know it's always could to remember that. These are real people raining about in buried trying circumstances. The other point is you know. I'm watching just to see. It is fascinating to see these friends. Or people who claim to be friends absorbing this information real time and i get that so much has come out since then that it's somewhat unfair to judge them based on the knowledge at the time and we're talking about late. Twenty twenty so much has come out in the interim bankruptcy case hadn't even been filed at that point at merely been speculated upon so you know the state bar hadn't taken any action at that point so it's you don't you don't want to judge it from august twenty one twenty twenty one is But it is interesting to see the group the social dynamics from strictly an anthropological perspective. How cleaning dividing new ways and there's inner circle and outer golan and it's interesting to see the dialogue around money as well and how not just. They're all well see women but there is a lot of stratification within that group. Right of who is truly rich. Who who is financially literate And and who. Is you know really admittedly financially illiterate so And i think the one thing that has shocked us erica seem. She didn't know how to use teach us a debit card. Yes but she has said in previous season that she was a self made person that she she had done that all herself so it sort of reinventing the narrative. Yes and i also think. What's interesting is that the person who is probably most financially literate is sutton because she had just gone through a divorce with an incredibly wealthy man at with complicated forensic accounting and she is the person who seems to believe the story beliefs and she is the one who's most financially illiterate just throwing a new piece of evidence in this whole thing at munich written about and jumping shows but Emerged recently scott last october. So like the middle of october. Erica had received a subpoena to come down to the courthouse or they were doing it by sam but in front of a judge and answer questions about her husband's assets because you know a former client of his had gotten far enough along in suing him. He was actually collecting money. And so. Tom had been questioned in that famous Where he says. I don't have any money at one hundred million dollars less so now they're going to other people may want to talk to the cfo. They want to talk to the membership director. Jonathan and they wanna talk to erica. they're gonna Subpoena date is supposed to ear and it just emerged in the last couple months. The reason why she never appeared and that hearing was canceled was because she told them it. Real housewives at started filming inch couldn't make it and they agreed to push it off couple months so that was before she fought for boris. I assume that this was a conversation with the real housewives. People to mean must've said the guy was peanut said like bush. I mean i. i'm. I'm speculating by it's also before she decides to file she's you know she's given a very good indication husband husbands not any money. That's right and again we go back to we all do what. What is the significance of election. Day right why did she all descend decide in nova early in november of twenty twenty that that was it that all of the treatment that he had done over all the years somehow there was a change in their marital situation and she had finally put put an end to their marriage. It's all suspicious. And i don't think there's anything wrong with any of us. You know raising an eyebrow. Even this season opened up waste. Erica telling viewers that they had kind of reconnected during the pandemic and they were eating dinner every night. So it's even within the season there's been a complete one eighty You know they were you know reconnecting during the pandemic and now he's having affairs and ask you on right and being somewhat suggestions verbally abusive controlling. Don't know if anyone use the word abuse. But that's they keep going back to the clip of tom snapping at that dinner party I wonder if there's other footage that hasn't been shot or hasn't been revealed to yours before but if that's all there is it might be. I don't know i'm and look if they said time together during the back. Which seems like they did. Now go anyplace i mean. Wouldn't she know about his dementia. I mean he didn't develop alzheimer's overnight investment. I have confused about it like if they had this warm relationship and she was a hold his handwriting. Di blah blah blah. Then you'd think that like a picture big moment. He has alzheimer's he needs. You like this is like the whole for better. You know reason why we are now. Why would you right. I mean that seems so terrible. And also i mean you guys have covered so many cases i mean you are amongst the best investigator Investigative reporters in the country if not the world. What did you make of the story of him. Driving on the clip. Well first of all. I asked the pasadena. Police permanent about any car-crash facility within the timeframe in which it was reported on tmz and discussed in the show. And they don't have any evidence of this crash so we've been hearing about this for sixty six months eight months and try to look for public records on batch. The tom loyalists were always bring you back is totally fountains back dr as somebody else's backyard sitting on a lawn chair it it's very gripping story. Where did they literally you know in all the police at all. But then there are actually are so many different variations of it in terms of. There's a cliff and he's unconscious and you know here but he only hurt his ankle You know it's just. It's very confusing to me. And i get it. You are supposed to see. I mean at least in the city of los angeles. I know you're supposed to call the police if someone is injured in a crash So i don't. I don't know what the rules are in pasadena but i i don't know what to make bet except bad. It's some w people like to bring up as this external event that led Tom's downfall and not what the court records show. Which is. Tom has been accused of misappropriation and conduct for years and years years. And i think about a harder to face if you have tethered yourself and your career to tom. Girardi champion of justice if you're seen in photographs wits end if you've attended political fundraisers if you went to a super bowl party or is christmas party or if are team tom It's very hard to extricate south so that to me is seems to.

Plus check that out this episode excited about pulitzer prize winning journalist. Harriet ryan and matt hamilton. Had been covering the case of the unraveling of tom. Geordies legal career his firm and of course his marriage to real housewives of beverly hills star. Erica gerardi i. I interviewed them in january of this year after their article went viral about the downfall of the house of girardi and so i wanted to circle back with them as we are continuing to watch the season of real housewives of beverly hills to see what has changed since that first article came out in december of last year. And where we are in the case today. So here we go. Harriet ryan and man. Hamilton are the pulitzer prize winning investigative reporters who followed the girardi downfall over the last ten months for the los angeles times. You will remember the article the legal titan on the real housewives. The rising fall of tom. Girardi and erica. Jane appeared on december. Seventeen twenty twenty one in the la times and we just got to see all of the cast mates review that interview and that article in the episode. I welcome them back to the show. How are you guys doing great. Thanks for having us kate. Yeah it's going to be remind everybody how this story came to your desk. Amanda i both were a court reporter before we did other things. So we've we just have a real interest in the legal community and tom girardi you ever to. La was the biggest star. And i think separately both of us had heard some weird things about him years and know about a year and a half ago. We just kind of put him on a list of things we should look into. We have some breathing room. And i think ba finally had time just at the moment that his world was crumbling. So i don't know if you've found bads listen to this her or what but it was kind of a coincidence that We arrived on the scene as the girardi world was falling apart. When erica filed for divorce on election day i think carry it and i were each working on different stories but i remember her texting me saying you know erica dirty. Just filed for divorce like what's up with that and it kind of restarted that whole sob process like. Oh we have this when talking about these Would call them allegations but there whereas this whispers about tom girardi and yes just echo harriett. It's it was the right time we had our duxford cleared and we'd already started. We started looking doing a deep dive on his legal history and all the allegations against him Shortly after she filed for divorce and then. Jay adelson the attorney. Who is you know. Obviously a friend of mine. He said that election day was a signal to him that something was really going wrong but he clearly had money problems so harriet. Can you tell me a little bit about his influence in politics. And tom's from a political standpoint Tom had huge influence in california. Which has a huge influence in the entire political system. Just like this giant step cash register for every candidate. In america you know going to raise money every democratic and And it was just know that like when you went through. La got voted jordi. Qisas office on wilshire and tom out his listened to a few stories and eastern right your check and he also would have fundraisers at this fancy cleven and added clubbing jonathan. He would know rent out. The ballroom would raise money for political everything from president to district. Attorney to local council. You'd raise money for you. And so he especially with close with governor's going back several governors but jerry brown gavin newsom even gray davis like he was like he had them on speed. Dial and and governor can do for a lawyer that donates a lot of money is give him influence with judicial. Fix so over. The decades girardi became the stop that you had to make you become a judge in southern california it because him meet with him again listen to his stories. Sheriff you glasses of red wine and if you liked you he would say to tell the governor appoint this person. He didn't like it. You could forget about it. And matt tell me a little bit about the downfall which obviously began with a little bit of grumblings about the status of the firm and just thomas himself. That's a massive question and one that the downfall has a lot of different currence to it so there is what you just said tom himself so there been concerns raised about his health. At the moment. He is bleep. Eighty two at the moment You know she still was running the law firm up until the end of twenty twenty. He there but there have been allegations or he's lawyers have said mccarthy alzheimer's expensively incompetent So there have been a lot of concerns about whether he's entirely mentally fit To continue practicing law but the downfall really began years ago Frankly there have been allegations of wrongdoing by jorgi kice by tom variety dating back decades talking dozens of lawsuits sped alleged financial improprieties legal malpractice and other questionable practices in the practice of law and those allegations have quietly accumulated. Nellie superior court. They were occasionally reported on You know by the legal press and by local outlets but never really gained mainstream Never really had penetrated their main stream. Newer had anyone really put it all together to what was the university of allegations that were out there. With a few exceptions i think You know some local reporter stead but people weren't listening so there have been allegations. Tom was taking settlements that were coming in and was in pain them fully out to his clients and spending the money skimming off the top. There were also allegations that he wasn't pain other attorneys What he had agreed to so. Tom was a big fish in local legal community. He took cases that other lawyers sent him. Because you know it's hard to find clients. It's expensive and tom was less about finding clients and more taking in big cases at bumbling them up and going against these big corporate goliaths to get massive settlements and agreement is typically that. Tom will kick back a portion of the legal fees. To the attorney. That's over and tom The allegations are was not sending money over. We're talking millions millions of dollars so all of those forces over time Created this perfect storm that caught up with the firm. J has alleged ponzi scheme. Basically robbing peter to pay paul Over the course of several years and the weird thing is you've covered. This is that there was a spotless record for so long and tell me more about that. Harriet there's the public agency. That's in charge of beating out bad attorneys And it's called the state bar california and he as you mentioned had immaculate record no signs of any problems we looked at it we found he cultivated all these really close personal relationships with people who are influential at the bar. And so you know. Take them out for lunches at morton's and other places that there's no way that someone on a civil service salary would be able to afford on a daily basis Vegas parties flying his private plane He threw he was under investigation. One time he's a jain norm as party in monterey for the chief justice of the california Charge at the bar and Flew in paul anka Him just totally over the top stuff. Free legal representation for them and our families. I mean so..

"Will be transfixed by every single episode. I'm telling you it's going to be your new obsession bachelor in paradise just premiered last night. It's obviously the fan favorites from the bachelor franchise. They're back and ready for a second or sometimes third chance at finding love. this one is hosted by david spade. Wells adams's the bartender and they've got a bunch of celebrities that come and go and then telling you these romance shows. It's much better with comedian. I think we saw with f boy island with nikki. Glaser like they just work better. It just doesn't make sense anymore in the year. Twenty twenty one to have a host that takes it so seriously. Because i mean it's ridiculous like people really are going to go to an island to this crappy resort and they're going to be stuck together and they're going to somehow decide after a week and a half that they should get engaged. I mean it's all bananas so you need a comedian to kind of make it like you know. We have to be honest. It's it's insane. Another great show to watches welcomed. Plath ville it's back. This is the show where the parents live in rural georgia and they have a bunch of children. That are all they look like. They were in that and bird. Hamilton colt in australia. Where they all have platinum blonde hair except in the cold. She died their hair. But this is a family that looks exactly the same all the children. I mean by the way. Sorry my kids look look like two but i'm telling you it's borderline creepy and the parents have had a very difficult time letting go of their children because they have controlled every aspect of it to the point of like they can have technology. They can't watch tv like there if you plop them in the middle of new york city and tried to have them have a conversation with another person at their same age. They'd be like what planet have you been living on so tlc's been following them and it's a new season because the older children have left the house. The parents are struggling to maintain a relationship with them of course and then the older kids are really not given much access to the younger kids because they don't want the older kids to compromised the purity of their life on this property. So it's all really fascinating. I've found the parents to be fascinating. I would love to talk to them just to understand their mindset. And i think you can just go right in. Watch the first episode of the season and you. It's like a soap opera. You can just pop right in and kind of get the gist of it. But this is a family. You're to want to watch. And then speaking of people that live on remote properties there is children the cold discovery. Plus this tells the astonishing tale of one of the world's most notorious prolific colts that children of god through the stories of three british women who escaped its clutches. And that's on. August twenty first on discovery plus. This was the same colt that walking phillips and rose mcgowan grew up in its bizarre bizarre group. I think that once you start peeling back the layers you will find it all just as interesting as i do. I think i told you guys once before. But when i moved to l. a. All went on a match dot com date. And i have read so much about different colts that my date started telling me about his life and how he traveled all over the world and he has a bunch of siblings but they're not from the same parents and at some point i said did you grow up with the children of god. He looked at me he goes. Oh my god did you too. I was like no. I just watched a lot of forty eight hours mystery anyway. Children of the colt discovery. Plus check that out this episode excited about pulitzer prize winning journalist. Harriet ryan and matt hamilton. Had been covering the case of the unraveling of tom. Geordies legal career.

The voices of those locked up. Some miners have been all but written off but no more written off premiers july fourteenth. Listen wherever you get your podcasts so brittany before the break you were talking about this pop up event. Pico union. That you attended of people were just getting vaccinated. Who are some of the people that you encountered. Yes so when. I was in pico union. One of the first people i spoke to was eric milan a high school teacher. She held off on getting vaccinated because she thought there wasn't enough research on what a vaccine might do to people but now that she's returning to school right now i'm going to be exposed to more people and they're smart people that are being responsible to parties and stuff like that and our family. There's people who have the vaccine on. They feel it can be free about and from what i've read even with the vaccine you can still spread the virus. You're going to be good yourself. You can still spread it. So i'm like essentially they can spread it to me right right so i'm not exposing myself but i could be exposed some people around some you know when i first encountered her. She was sitting at a table and they were asking her. You know are you here for the pfizer. And she was. Yes unless you have proof that. I shouldn't get it. And she was obviously very very hesitant. I think even when they were going to give it a shot she questioned whether it was actually the pfizer vaccine and double check to make sure your reading your story you had this great scene of her like fidgeting with her pink nails because she was so nervous about it but then she ended up getting the vaccine so was her response typical than of the people that you talked to that day. Yeah it definitely was. I mean these are really the stragglers. It wasn't surprising to me to see kind of nervous energy around people who had shown up because they had put it off for so long and then we're finally convinced but i think a lot of people still had reservations but ultimately decided that this was the best bet so back to the experts and you mentioned earlier. Kaiser health news What do they another folks. As the best way to get those latino stragglers of people who haven't gotten the vaccine what should be done to get vaccinated. I think definitely a lot more conversations in the community. Like bringing the vaccine to the people i think is one of the most effective ways is what i'm hearing you know. I talked to. You know a professor who was telling me that she's done webinars and she's getting still questions from people and a lot of latinos were impacted. Really hard by cova did a lot of them already had it so in some of their minds. It's like why already had it. You know. I don't need to get vaccinated. I heard that a lot at the vaccine clinic. I think there needs to be more conversations around. We don't know how long that immunity lasts like it's better to just get vaccinated regardless of whether you've had co bid so i think those conversations i think people are still on edge a little bit like is there a you know access whether that's bringing it to companies to factories to places where people work to try and get them vaccinated. I think it's just gonna take more out of the box thinking i it seems to be the no shaming at all just all reaching people to wear their instead of saying no. How dare you. How dare you not take the vaccine. Yeah i think it's so much easier to shame people and to fit into right. everyone off is just. I'm quoting this like idiots. But i mean it's harder to do the work to actually talk people through their fears. Talk them through. What's going on. Because i interviewed people. It was so fascinating to hear telling me i watch. Tv seon and i saw someone talk about how he waited and was on the fence and then got the delta varian and this one woman told me like. That's what got me like. That's what made me change my mind. Because i was waiting. I just have been on the fence going back and forth about what to do and her sister's kids had been sharing misinformation around the vaccine. And so that's another huge barrier that we need to take into consideration. I'm sure your family got this. I wrote about my dad where they hear it from lincoln padre a friend saying oh no you know. You're going to die if you get the vaccine. So what are experts saying specifically about fighting that misinformation right. I mean this is coming up a lie. Or you know if i get the vaccine. I don't want to be zombie. that's when i was hearing also when i was at this clinic. I really think it's having more again having more conversations especially from someone who is in the community like community clinics hospital workers like this professor. You know i spoke with. She's not the not too and so she's like i do these webinars. I do them in spanish. I have these conversations kind of challenging that misinformation. She was saying some of the things that had come up. One of them was about a chip. You know which. I had heard actually from my uncle. My dad yeah. And so. While i was at pico union. That's exactly what i saw One of the people. I talked to was jennifer virginia october. So i knew it something real but i kept thinking like okay higher hot at. What's the point of me getting a fiery hot like. I have the antibodies for. But then i started to feel a little bit sick two weeks ago and then so did my family and then i thought to myself like i'm tired of being scared and wondering if it's covert or not so i might as well just thoughts needed to avoid that and just feeling like okay if you're sick it's because you're sick. It's not because you have copay. No that was part of it too. It was interesting talking to jennifer because she was you know on the younger side. She was like twenty seven and those are some of the ones where we've stalled on getting younger people vaccinated and so it was fascinating kind of hearing from her and what had changed her mind because i think her mentality is kind of the same like i had co bid and kind of holding off and feeling like i'm safe like i have. Antibodies have immunity. And so that definitely is one of the things that was coming up and she had decided to wait.
