Soares - Why follow the law?

Not too long ago I did a post about David Soares, our local District Attorney. Well, he's in the news again, and this time it's not about steroids.

According to the North Country Gazette, Soares failed to pay his attorney licensing fee to the State Office of Court Administration. I checked on the OCA website today, and it looks like he still hasn't paid up.

To be fair, the ADAs in Albany County (like most counties) treat defendants fairly when they get ticketed in cases of suspensions involving driver licenses, insurance and registration, so at least it's not hypocrisy. And at least one person close to me has blown the attorney registration fee once.


I happened to check the OCA website today (4/10/07) and it does appear that our District Attorney has now cleared things up and paid his fee.

And I thought a libertarian would be opposed to the government licensing fees.
Where's the outrage?
