The subtitle is intriguing in the WaPo article: "Cases Indicate Willingness to Defy GOP Orthodoxy" is it not? The article goes on to list cases ol' Freddy has taken..like the 14 tons of Cannabis just for an example.
The article also tells us how Freddy supports and aligns himself with various lawyer groups who historically are despised by the Rethugs on The Hill. Its 3 pages long so bring your lunch.
WaPo evidently did their homework for this piece..its a good read check it out in the link above.
