The Law Is A Ass #432: Things Aren’t Impeachy Keen with Green Arrow

Bob Ingersoll

By day Bob Ingersoll was an attorney in the Cuyahoga County Public Defender Office, Appellate Division in Cleveland, Ohio, until he retired in 2009. But in the “Real World” he has also been a freelance writer since 1975, when he sold his first comic-book story to the late, lamented Charlton Comics. He’s still at it and, in addition to his long-running column “The Law Is a Ass” has sold stories to DC, Marvel, Innovation, Now Comics, Comico, Kitchen Sink and others; as well as co-authoring the novels Captain America: Liberty’s Torch and Star Trek: The Case of the Colonist’s Corpse. Bob is married with children, which is about as close to Al Bundy as he cares to get.

    Hi Bob! Glad to see you’re back. My assumption here is that Oliver voluntarily recused himself (I hope that I’m using that term correctly) so that the impeachment would not prove to be a distraction from the duties of the Mayor.

      He wouldn’t have recused himself. He might have temporarily ceded power to Quentin, pending the outcome of the impeachment; but that’s not how the show played it out. Ollie could have said that to cover the mistake, but all he said was you’re the mayor now; indicating that the process was automatic: get impeached and you’re no longer the mayor. And that’s not how it works.
