Who dressed like Thomas Jefferson:
That appears to be the dictionary definition of “inexplicable incompetence.” The only case that can remotely compete in the inexplicable incompetence department with Hawver’s handling of Cheatham’s defense is when he represented himself. The Kansas Supreme Court unsurprisingly took disciplinary action against Hawver in order to disbar him. During a disciplinary hearing earlier this year, Hawver represented himself before the court—dressed as Thomas Jefferson. The Capital-Journal reported from inside the courtroom, and it wasn’t pretty.
