During Thursday night's Republican debate, Donald Trump warned that sooner or later, a lawsuit would be filed challenging Ted Cruz's constitutional eligibility to become President of the United States.

The lawsuit came "sooner" - the very next day.

It gets even better: the Houston lawyer who filed the suit in federal court in Texas has been suspended from practicing law in two different states.

As reported on PJ Media, Newton B. Schwartz Sr. engaged in legal matters in both Pennsylvania and Louisiana without having been admitted to do so - nor did he seek temporary permission from either state.

In Louisiana, he was also charged with fraud, deceit, misrepresentation and improperly providing financial assistance to a client.

According to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, Schwartz consented to suspension from practicing law in the state.

On Tuesday, the Cruz campaign circulated a lengthy document disputing challenges to his eligibility. Trump has suggested that the Democrats will file suit against Cruz should he become the Republican nominee.

It just goes to show, next time you want a legal hitjob done right...
