Unfortunately, "A Guy in the Pew" is going dark, because fortunately, President Barack Obama has selected Chuck as the new General Counsel for the Department of the Air Force, Department of Defense. Congratulations, Chuck!
Here is his official bio. I didn't know all of this, but it explains why I was such a fan of his blog and its content!
Charles Blanchard is a litigation partner in the Phoenix, AZ office of Perkins Coie. During the Clinton administration, he served as the General Counsel of the U.S. Army (1999 - 2001) and Chief Counsel of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (1997 - 1999). Before assuming in those positions, he practiced law at Brown & Bain, P.A. (1988 - 1997) and served as Arizona State Senator (1991 - 1995). He also previously served as Associate Independent Counsel in the Office of Independent Counsel James McKay (1987 - 1988). Mr. Blanchard has clerked for Judge Harry T. Edwards on the DC Circuit and for Justice O'Connor. He is a graduate of Lewis & Clark College, Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, and Harvard Law School.
I am confident that Chuck will carry his Christian values and concisence with him in everything he does at the Pentagon. This selection speaks well of the Obama-Biden-Gates administration's military values. :)
