Fired Again! Capitol Insurrection Lawyer Loses Second Job In Bizarre Turn Of Events

It’s been just one week since the Lawyer Fired For Attending Capitol Insurrection Lost His First Job and this surreal saga has taken another unexpected turn in what can only be described as a Bizarre Turn Of Events: the Lawyer Fired For Attending Capitol Insurrection Lost His Second Job!


One would think that the first day on the job of being a lawyer would be one of the most difficult. Not so, at least in David Buhl’s case.

The Capitol insurrection lawyer was fired after only 20 minutes of work on his first day at a law firm because he is representing the police who killed an unarmed woman on video.

He found out about this when another lawyer informed him he was terminated and it made international headlines within 24 hours.

While Mr.Buhl received attention for his involvement in defending the police against a US citizen for the first time, employers weren’t too impressed as seen by his dismissal from another job just two days later,

where he was given less than two hours to work before being told to leave and no explanation was offered.

The Facts

It turns out that Jamal Lewis, the former D.C. lawyer fired for participating in the anti-Trump protest at President Trump’s inauguration in January, is not just unemployed—he also lost his second job last week after getting fired from Ballou High School for exposing himself to a high school student.

Yes, you read that correctly: exposed himself to a high school student. As if this story couldn’t get any weirder, the student he was exposed to was fourteen years old.

This unfortunate encounter happened on February 8th when Lewis approached the student outside of her dance class at Ballou and said he wanted to take her picture with his phone as a prize in exchange for money.

Is There Any Legal Recourse?

Nope. Do you know how firing someone is like shooting someone and then blaming them for bleeding? That’s what happened here. If you’re going to fire someone for coming to an anti-Trump rally, then it’s kind of hypocritical to be worried about hiring a Trump supporter.

I mean, if you’re an employer and the government comes around asking who voted against Trump, the best thing to do would lie so you don’t get any more death threats from people.

While there are no reported precedents of employees getting fired for attending protests, there have been cases of it being a factor in decisions. Back in 1992, Darlene Jespersen sued her employer,

Boise Cascade Corp., after she was fired for taking maternity leave. Jespersen’s lawyers argued that her right to protest had been violated since women weren’t even allowed at work while pregnant.

A judge initially ruled against her due to company policy prohibiting women from working while they were pregnant and ordered that she receive only three months’ severance, but after an appeals court overturned his decision, he awarded her $250,000 in back pay.

What Can We Learn From This?

Too often, these stories tell us that we should stay in our lanes and not get mixed up in the business decisions of other people. But what can be taken from this story is that it’s hard to escape the consequences of your actions. That even if you change jobs,

there will always be an impact on your future. He might have had an idea in his head of how he would want to handle the situation at his new job, but those ideas were quickly shattered when the uprising story broke out again and found its way to him.

Trying to find loopholes in difficult situations or avoiding confrontation is never a good way forward.


When asked for a comment about the events, Hill responded I’m grateful to have had the privilege of representing some of the most extraordinary people our country has ever seen.

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention them here. When asked what she was going to do next, Hill responded: Move on with life, she said. Take care of my kids. They’re an amazing support system.
