Not only can she, but it seems she does. [Austin American-Statesman]

The real question is can we tell the difference. :)

That is a much better punchline than what Walter offered.

My own off-the-top-of-my-head response would be something along the lines of: “Why, that’s just crazy!”.

If they suspend her license, can she sue under ADA?

Not only can she continue practicing law, she is entitled to preferential consideration in hiring by the US Department of Justice. See “DOJ Seeks Candidates With ‘Psychiatric’ and ‘Severe Intellectual’ Disabilities” by Joseph Klein (August 24, 2012) http://frontpagemag.com/2012/joseph-klein/doj-seeks-candidates-with-psychiatric-and-severe-intellectual-disabilities/ , which has a link to the DOJ memo.

I have to give it to Richard on that one, pretty funny. Shoot.
