I can’t stand the way high paid officials plead stupidity when malfeasance is revealed.
-Ken Lay got paid millions a year but had no idea what was happening at Enron.
-Our former Attorney General can’t remember which hand he wipes with.
-No one in Gavin Newsom’s office knew the timesheet policy (there wasn’t one).
Now we have disgraced Supervisor Ed Jew claiming naiveté in handling cash bribes, forty large.
The feds finally busted him for shaking down a Tapioca joint.
In the Chron story Ed explains:
The consultant, Jew said, had agreed to take only half the $40,000 fee and leave the other $20,000 with the supervisor as a charitable donation to a Sunset district park development project.
"That was an unorthodox way of paying," Jew told The Chronicle in May. "I don't know if it violates the law. I know now not to venture into these waters."
So, Ed, this constituent agrees—you ARE a dumbfuck. You’re way too stupid to be a Supervisor.
