Meanwhile, back at the prosecutor

Posted By on Mon, Oct 15, 2007 at 10:47 AM

The Democrat-Gazette did the Ron Quillin story from beginning to end Sunday -- the four wives, the footsie, the fat-dissolving injections with public money. But I also got to thinking: Do you have any idea how many times audits of public agencies turn up $40,000 thefts in the course of a year? Lots and rarely with this sort of attention (but also rarely do the thieves leave sexy e-mail trails). Prison (Quillin probably will serve a couple of years) is perfectly in order for these white collar public miscreants. But, I wondered, whatever happened to the guy who seemingly embezzled more than $200,000 in bogus expense payments from a state regulatory board? No charges yet. Nor full restitution, either, last time anyone checked. To name one. Remember the county official who run up about $40,000 in charges on a county's Wal-Mart account?

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
