Is Cato's "Problem" Heating Up?

How successful has the Cato board been in burying the sexual harassment problems of a senior Cato official? Maybe not so much.

Judge Napolitano Resigns From the Cato Board 
Could it be because of the neocon-like warmongering and Republican estabishment politics? Or that all board members and top execs are personally liable under DC law if the shenanigans, on which the kibosh has definitely not been put, continue?


  1. I can't find any other links to this announcement. Can you please elaborate a little, Lew?

  2. My guess is that departing the board after the fact isn't going to protect anyone. I'd bet he is no longer willing to associate with their warmongering ways.

    1. could you please elaborate on Cato's "warmongering ways"--which Cato policy papers, blog posts, op-eds, TV appearances, policy forums, etc. have been "warmongering"? As far as I can tell, Cato's foreign policy shop is the only Beltway institution that actively argued against the Iraq war and pushed for a speedy exit, has said we should leave Afghanistan yesterday, was against the intervention in Libya, is against an intervention in Syria, and is calling for major cuts to the defense budget. Maybe I'm wrong, but that doesn't seem all that "warmongering" to me.
