It’s been a long, hard road for Bojangles, who first made the leap from law school to an academic job in 1991.
He started out at a nonprofit law firm in Boston before taking on a position at the U.S. Department of Justice.
In 1993, he joined the U, S. Department as the Office of Legal Counsel (OLC), and in 1996 he became deputy assistant attorney general for the Office for Civil Rights.
He went on to become deputy attorney general and assistant attorney General for the Civil Rights Division under President Bill Clinton.
During his tenure, Bojangle has made a name for himself by advocating for civil rights and helping to protect the rights of all Americans.
Bojangles’ most notable work involved working to help improve the enforcement of the Voting Rights Act, which had been a source of contention since the 1970s.
In the 1990s, he led a team of lawyers that drafted a comprehensive civil rights strategy that was designed to prevent a future era of racially segregated voting in the South.
Bojsays advocacy helped bring about changes to voting laws in many states, including Georgia, North Carolina, Alabama, Tennessee, Texas, South Carolina, Louisiana, Louisiana and Wisconsin.
In 2004, he helped draft a federal law that prohibited discrimination in the voting booth, and Bojags tenure as assistant attorney at the DOJ helped to draft new voting laws.
Bojigs efforts in the field have been largely overlooked.
He also authored a landmark Supreme Court decision in 2004 that recognized voting rights as a constitutional right.
BoJs leadership in the civil rights community is well-known.
He was the first civil rights attorney to represent the NAACP in a case that challenged a Georgia law that required citizens to show ID to vote.
Bojs also spearheaded the civil right litigation against the Department of Education, a case known as Veto Challenge.
BoJangles legacy has been a success, but it has also come with a price.
He has been involved in multiple controversies in recent years.
BoJangs personal life has been controversial in the past, and his public comments have drawn criticism.
BoJs personal life was criticized for comments about a woman who was accused of raping him.
In 2000, BoJangles said that if a woman were raped, she would get the rapist to come out to her room, and if she were raped multiple times, she should be raped.
He later apologized and said that his comments were inappropriate.
In 2011, BoJs wife, Susan, accused him of sexual harassment after a series of encounters that included a drunken and inappropriate hug.
Bojas wife filed a lawsuit against him.
Bojjans wife filed another lawsuit in 2016 against Bojats ex-wife, Jill, for allegedly pressuring her into sleeping with him.
In 2017, Bojas ex-fiancee filed a complaint against BoJs ex-girlfriend, Heather, for sexual harassment and domestic violence.
