Do not be too surprised.
Typically, the ethics committee of the bar assoc is made up of... you guessed it lawyers.
In texas, theres 15 members, 5 perm, 5 ad-hoc, and 5 "members of the community" (read 3 lawyers and 2 that are tied by the groin to lawyers)
The Commission for Lawyer Discipline, is made up of 12 members, six attorneys appointed by the President of the State Bar and six public members appointed by the Supreme Court of Texas, all can be (and currently are) barristers.
We are not primarily on earth to see through one another, but to see one another through
Some people are like slinkies: not really good for anything... but you can't help laughing when you push them down the stairs
