On Claude Allen....

Tortblog, and seemingly everybody else, has already mused on fallen-from-grace former White House advisor Claude Allen, who was arrested for trying to defraud Target and Hecht's, a D.C.-area department store. But, in terms of sheer snarkiness, I like this op-ed piece in the Salt Lake Tribune:

Getting a reported few thousand dollars worth of refunds fraudulently at small-ticket stores such as Target and Hecht's is downright anticlimactic, especially for a black man who had enough personal wealth and White House in-crowd connections to swing something much bigger -- real estate fraud, dummy offshore companies. The possibilities were endless.
