Clinton-era appointee dead in apparent DC suicide (Mark Levy)
SFgate ` AP ^ | April 30, 2009 | BRETT ZONGKER

Posted on 04/30/2009 3:46:02 PM PDT by csvset

An attorney who served in the Clinton administration was found dead Thursday in an apparent suicide at his Washington law office.

Kilpatrick Stockton, an Atlanta firm, confirmed in a statement that attorney Mark Levy had died.

"Mark Levy was well known and highly respected for his successful appearances before the Supreme Court of the United States," said Bill Dorris, the firm's co-managing partner.

Levy was a deputy assistant attorney general in the Department of Justice between 1993 and 1995 and served five years in the Solicitor General's office.

D.C. Police spokeswoman Helen Andrews said officers were called to an office building where the firm is located to investigate a shooting Thursday morning. She said investigators believe it was a suicide.

Levy attended Yale University's law school with former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and more recently worked on fundraising for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, said Dennis Gingold, an attorney who was working with Levy on a case.

"I don't know anyone who isn't shocked by what just happened," Gingold said. "He was a good guy. He really was professional, first class."

During his career, Levy had argued 16 cases before the Supreme Court. At Kilpatrick Stockton, he served as counsel and chair of the firm's Supreme Court and appellate advocacy practice. Levy, who was married and has two children, lived in Bethesda, Md.

The firm had announced this week that 24 lawyers would be laid off, but it wasn't immediately clear whether Levy had been affected by staff cuts.

The death comes after the chief financial officer of mortgage giant Freddie Mac killed himself last week. David Kellermann was found dead April 22 in the basement of his northern Virginia home. Colleagues had noticed he was under stress and had suggested he take time off.

It is downright amazing how many people the clintons know who apparently kill themselves, are murdered or just die under really weird circumstances

How sad. My prayers for his family.....And yes I can not help but wonder what connection there may be between both deaths. What did they know?

I can’t understand why any of these people would off themselves. Are these people so fixated on what they think is important, that if it doesn’t go right, the take the ultimate walk. This makes no sense.

RIP for sure.

BUT you can bet your sweet ballgame that there is SO much more to this story than mere layoffs at the firm.

My first thought was the guy probably knew the details of the Vince Foster “suicide” and paid the price charged by the Clintons. Check out the “friends of Bill that are no longer with us....frightening stuff.

Thank you, I had forgotten that she kept that list—which is far more extensive than the one I just posted. When I get back on the computer later, I’d like to compare both lists: especially the bodyguards—not secret service like I originally thought.

Perhaps, one could look at this kind of stuff and conclude it is the reason why journalists are so timid to the point of hearing a pin drop when Obama leaves his presentations. No follow-ups, no “protocol-be-damned-I-have-a-right-as-a-journalist-to-ask-questions”. Timid, docile silence that surely must pound in the heads of a few that have a glimmer of logic and principle in them.

Or one could look at it from a spiritual warfare point of view and postulate that the true dem believers in statistically large numbers get to the point of blackness in despair from living the life of lies and deceit. They either off themselves or are permanently silenced in a desperate awakened nobility of truth and the desire to convince their fellow clintonistas to move to the light.

It is always startling how groups of people will admire the clothes of the naked emperor. Waking up is too, too frightening.

Strange, passing strange...

Police: Lawyer on Verge of Job Loss Found Dead in D.C.

###

A 59-year-old lawyer with an Atlanta-based firm who was due to lose his job today for economic reasons was found dead in his Washington office this morning of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to police.

Mark I. Levy, a former deputy assistant attorney general in the Clinton administration, was discovered by a co-worker about 8 a.m. in his 11th-floor office at Kilpatrick Stockton, in the 600 block of 14th Street NW, police said. They said evidence indicates that Levy shot himself in the head with a .38-caliber handgun.

Why would any liberal be depressed? We’re in the time of Obama Utopia (tm). This is the Nirvana for liberals all over the country. How can a leftie of any credibility end it all when they are seeing all the things they’ve worked for their entire lives come to fruition?

Oh, he was about to lose his job? Why should that be a problem? Surely, Obama would have found another government job for Levy.

“The source said Levy’s 20-year-old son found the note yesterday morning and called Montgomery County police.”

That is so sad. I don’t understand people that can do that to their families. It seems so selfish and cowardly(not to mention the sin it is in God’s eyes).

I know someone who crossed paths with both Clintons when he and they were in law school. He said he could tell they were deeply immoral, evil people and he wanted nothing to do with them.

Which tells me all I need to know about people who DID decide to get involved with them.

Anyone who remained in the Democratic Party after the party became officially pro-abortion in 1972 had no excuse. All such people aligned themselves with evil.

Nil nisi bonum and all that.

I know .. and this generation is stunningly
bereft of what our grandparents and parents had:
grit and faith. They endured life’s ups and downs
and took them in stride.

This group and younger are pathetic, weak and spoiled.

Something goes awry, and poof .. they lash out by
removing themselves (and sometimes their families)
or striking out at society. No guts, no intestinal
fortitude nor the ability to suffer a downfall and
go on. They just can’t cope .. pitiful.

Reminds me of a kid I was in grade school with. A stuck-up creep. In the fall of 1975, which was the year my class had finished college, there was a reunion at our grade school. This twit told me he had gone to Yale. “That’s in New Haven,” he added. Same Yale class as Levy.
