SPLC Co-Founder Morris Dees Allegedly Had Affair with Employee

Published

on

According to a divorce court appellate brief obtained by Big League Politics, the co-founder of one of America’s most influential law firms had an affair with an employee in 1973.

“In his deposition, Morris [Dees] admits that in the spring of 1973, or during the summer of 1973 he had an affair with Dianne Hicks, a Mobile lawyer who was working for the Southern Poverty Law Center,” the brief says. “He had sex with her during a canoe trip down the Tallapoosa River, and also in Brewton where they were working together on a trial.”

At that time, Morris was married to Maureene Dees, his now ex-wife. The two had a rocky marriage which ended in divorce after Morris allegedly attempted to blackmail Maureene and allegedly physically abused her.

“Maureene and [new lover Brian]  O’Daugherty had dinner together on the night of March 4th, and returned to her hotel room,” the brief says. “When they were in bed together, Morris and a Montgomery private detective, both of whom had been hiding in the bathroom, jumped out and started taking photographs, Morris said word in substance as follows:

‘Alright sister, you wanted a divorce. Now I want one, because I’ve got you where I want you.’

Morris was acting crazy, and Maureene thought he was going to kill everybody in sight. He told her that he had five detectives with him. He hit her and gave her a busted jaw. He then started writing something on paper which he then gave her to sign. This document, entered unto evidence as Plaintiff’s Exhibit 43, was a separation agreement.”

Morris and Maureene were separated at the time of the incident, and had agreed to see other people.

According to the appellate brief, Morris also took a road trip with another SPLC employee and shared  hotel accommodations with her. The brief does not detail whether Morris was conducting an affair with this employee.

“In the spring of 1977 Morris planned a trip to Kentucky and invited Maureene to go with him, knowing that she could not go becuase [sic] she was in rehearsal for a play,” the brief says. “Over Maureene’s objection, he took with him, on his motorcycle Pamela Horowitz, a lawyer working for the Southern Poverty Law Center at that time . He drove the motorcycle and she rode behind him from Montgomery to Kentucky, and they were gone for four or five days, during which they shared the same hotel accomodations [sic].”

SPLC has still not responded to an email request for comment regarding whether they condone Dees’ behavior. When Big League Politics called for comment, SPLC’s media contact briskly hung up the phone.

‘WHAT A DISASTER:’ Iowa Caucus Results Delayed in Vote Count Catastrophe

The nation is left with more questions than answers on the night of the Iowa Caucus.

Published

on

The Iowa Caucus was intended to kick off the Democratic Presidential primary by highlighting candidates with a credible shot of winning the nomination.

Instead, the first-in-the nation caucus seems to be more representative of the Democratic Party’s incompetence, after results for the caucus are delayed for an unforeseen “quality assurance” tabulation process. The development has many election hawks and Democrats howling mad, with many suspecting the DNC is dipping into its bag of old tricks with the hopes of blunting or preventing a Bernie Sanders victory in the caucus.

There are many reports of caucus precinct coordinators being totally ignored when trying to report the results of their local caucuses to the Iowa Democratic Party. At least one caucus organizer was outright hung up on by the party when he called in to report results- while speaking to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer live on air.

The mass of confusion is being traced to the failure of an app designed to report results. Iowa Democrats simply explained the unusual delay as the result of “inconsistencies,” offering little to no in depth explanation for what seems to be third world election practices.

Although we’re inexplicably left without any vote tallies the night of the election, exit polls and crowd sizes suggest that polling frontrunner Sanders has a strong chance to win. Pete Buttigieg also appears set for a strong second place performance. Sanders expressed confidence in a strong performance when addressing his supporters in the state.

Former Vice President Joe Biden appears slated for an embarrassment, outright failing to advance to the “viable” stage in many precinct and regional caucus. It’s not entirely impossible that Biden finishes fourth in the primary, a surprise development that would leave the candidate many assumed to be an easy frontrunner for the Democratic nomination struggling as he lags to New Hampshire and later primary states.

MSNBC talking heads could be overheard referring to the caucus as a “disaster” in a some capacity in leaked audio.

As of late Monday night, the Iowa Democratic Party is yet to report any vote results, let alone declare a winner. Big League Politics is continuing to monitor the situation.
