Clinton Lawyer Reps African Tyrant

Guess he has to do something while he waits for a Hillary 2012 campaign: Lanny Davis, a famous Clinton flack, is now representing Laurent Gbagbo, the Ivory Coast leader who stole last month’s election and has reportedly killed at least dozens of opposition protestors. Gbagbo has also cut off food and medical supplies to U.N. peacekeepers, who are guarding his opponent who rightfully won the election. “Mr. Gbagbo opposes violence and has authorized me to say he wants a mutual renunciation of violence,” Davis said in a press conference Monday. Davis also works for Equatorial Guinea dictator Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, who has been accused of “abduction, detention, torture, and execution.”
