Your primary goal when political views clash in a law department is to elect silence

The presidential election campaign concluded, I can return to blogging. Thank goodness, because I threw myself into it the past couple of months and left little time to write.

What do you do if your boss supports the candidate or party that you don’t, and both of you care about politics? I thought of this as I read in Corp. Counsel, Vol. 15, Nov. 2008 at 18, about five general counsel who as of July 31st had collectively donated more than $150,000 to the Democrats and five others who had donated more than $120,000 to the Republicans.

Having embroiled myself in exchanges too many times in the past few months, I recommend silence, and even more so if your general counsel has publicly taken a stance. Don’t elect to mix work and politics.
