I suppose that I’m not supposed to be happy about someone being the victim of a crime, so I hereby denounce myself.
Florida Democratic congressman loses $18 million in scheme
Published December 10, 2013 | FoxNews.com
Florida Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson lost $18 million in a scheme by a Virginia man that involved over a 100 victims, the congressman’s office confirmed Monday.
The man who ran the scheme, William Dean Chapman, was sentenced Friday in federal court to 12 years in prison. Prosecutors say Chapman used the money to fund a lavish lifestyle including a Lamborghini, a Ferrari and a $3 million home.
In most of the court papers, Grayson’s identity is protected — prosecutors say only that an elected official with the initials A.G. was the primary victim — but documents twice mention Grayson by name.
Nothing in the court papers suggests Grayson was anything but a victim of the scheme. Grayson, a former trial attorney, said he has had a long record for picking winning stocks, which formed the basis for his personal fortune.
The Distinguished Gentleman is incendiary in his hatred for Republicans, so it doesn’t bother me in the slightest that he lost a few bucks.
