No, Mr. Speaker. Most of the negative attention was from being a personal injury attorney.

I also like how he’s telling folks that he probably contracted TB while giving aid to those poor Vietnamese orphans.

Plus, his father’s prepaid legal practice has been irreversibly damaged from all the negative publicity?

This sounds like he’s laying the groundwork for a future suit, which will no doubt tarnish his reputation further.

That said, I fail to see how those Canadian passengers have a cause of action if they didn’t actually contract a disease from the guy.
