Williams to urge law license suspensions for those who ‘investigated’ Eakin emails

HARRISBURG, Monday, Nov. 23 – State Sen. Anthony Hardy Williams and other state legislators will hold a press conference at 10:30 a.m., Tuesday, Nov. 24, in the Capitol to call for the suspension of the law licenses for those who covered up the investigation of racist, misogynistic, homophobic emails received and forwarded by state Supreme Court Justice Michael Eakin.
