Former GOP US attorney: Investigate Warren license
BOSTON (AP) -- A former Republican U.S. attorney for Massachusetts is calling for an investigation into Democrat Elizabeth Warren's law license, echoing a charge also raised by Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brown.
Francis McNamara, who resigned in 1989 after federal investigators concluded he'd falsely accused former Republican Gov. William Weld of smoking marijuana, said the Massachusetts Bar of Board Overseers should investigate to see if Warren "engaged in the unauthorized practice of law."
Warren, a Harvard Law School professor, said McNamara and Brown are "just wrong."
Warren is currently a member of the Texas bar and U.S. Supreme Court bar. Warren said she's always complied with the rules of court whenever she appeared.
A call to the Massachusetts Bar of Board Overseers wasn't immediately returned.
Brown and Warren are locked in a tight Senate race.
