The latest in our ongoing series of events with authors and books of a political nature–and that might be trashed or overlooked by the MSM — brings in Charlotte Dennett.
Dennett is an author and attorney from Vermont. She practices negligence, civil rights and family law, and has presented cases to the Vermont Supreme Court. She’s also been a reporter in the Middle East, and is co-author, with her husband, Gerard Colby, of Thy Will Be Done-The Conquest of the Amazon: Nelson Rockefeller and Evangelism in the Age of Oil. She’s also a frequent contributor to the Huffington Post.
Dennett recently ran for the Attorney General position of the state of Vermont. She lost that race to a less progressive candidate, but found as she ran that she was becoming the focus of an increasingly vocal movement for moral and legal accountability by the US government, especially pertaining to the still-unprosecuted malefactors of the last administration–architects of two wars, of an extra-judicial torture regime, and of rampant invasions of privacy and subversions of civil rights. Such is the subject of The People v. Bush.
