The loudest gadfly of the Clinton era has a new book out Oct. 13. Larry Klayman — founder of Judicial Watch, emperor of Freedom of Information Act requests and a former U.S. Senate hopeful — has penned “Whores: Why and How I Came to Fight the Establishment,” now in major bookstores despite the title, which almost didn’t make it into this paper.
“Well, that ‘w’ word is in the Bible, so people can’t get too offended. And guess what? My next book will be called ‘Screwed.’ You think I’m kidding? It’s about the legal profession, and may require 20 volumes,” Mr. Klayman tells Beltway in his best waggish mode, perhaps reflective of his recent foray into stand-up comedy.
And not for laughs, he has also served Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad with a $10 billion class-action complaint filed on behalf of “all oppressed, tortured and murdered Iranians seeking freedom,” delivered to the leader via a “Middle Eastern” journalist in late September.
“I’m based out of Los Angeles now, and I am still doing standup. It’s the only way I can survive with the Obama administration in charge,” Mr. Klayman adds. “My mission continues to be educate America, and do it legally. We’re in crisis. Even the Left is mad now.”
