De Novo Debunks Claim that Columbia's President Hired Law Faculty As Payoff for Help in Affirmative Action Case

On Sunday, we blogged an article (Bollinger on the Spot) in the New York Sun:  Did Columbia Hire Faculty Member as Payoff for Help to President Bollinger in Affirmative Action Case?.  Denovo debunks the NY Sun article in Reason #23 for Liberals to Join Fed Soc:

[T[he suggestions made by the NY Sun ... struck me as quite silly, To my understanding, the Columbia University president has little role in hiring faculty in general, and particularly in the graduate schools.

Oh, It couldn't happen like that, it is outside of regular channels.

Yeah, right.

Listen:

Lots of shady characters,
and lots of dirty deals.
Every name's an alias
just in case somebody squeals.
It's the lure of easy money,
it's got a very strong appeal.

Perhaps you'd understand it better
Standin' in my shoes,
It's the ultimate enticement,
It's the smuggler's blues, smuggler's blues.
