Snapshots of St. George's
Attorney Richard Painter ’80 was back on the Hilltop yesterday for a Brown Bag lecture in the Academic Center. Organized jointly by the SG Civics Club, the Young Republicans Club and the Young Democrats Club, the lecture attracted a full house of students and community members interested in politics and ethics law.
Mr. Painter, the S. Walter Richey Professor of Corporate Law at the University of Minnesota, was the chief White House ethics lawyer for President George W. Bush from February 2005 to July 2007. Mr. Painter (pictured here with Bochu Ding ’17, co-head of the Young Democrats Club; Austin Page ’17, co-head of the Young Republicans Club; Shivam Patel ’17, Chase Hedlund ’17 and Ellie Williams ’18, co-heads of the Civics Club, and Joy Mitchell ’17, co-head of the Young Democrats Club) is vice chair of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, which recently filed to sue Donald Trump for his violation of the emoluments clause in the Constitution.
