I thought Check 21 made large scale check kiting impractical. All these years I could have been living a life of crime instead of toiling away at a hot keyboard.

Step 1: Write $82 million in bad checks
Step 2: Get released on $400,000 bail
Step 3: Profit!

FTFA: He is charged with writing checks to himself, despite not having enough money in his accounts to cover the massive withdrawals, according to prosecutors. Khan then tried to cover his tracks by wiring money back into the original accounts, but the suspicious transactions were flagged by officials at the financial institutions.

Wrote checks to himself? And he actually had the money, and tried to put it in the account once he realized it wasn't there? And he was stopped from putting the money in the account. Hmm, somethings's fishy.

Fun fact. If you whacked his balls with a stick once every second. It would take 2.6 years of ball whacking to pay off the debt.

$82 million in bad checks? WTF, does he think he's a Congressman?
 
2012-12-23 11:47:54 AM  
You KNOW he wrote a check to secure his 400,000-dollar bail. I know it's sitting on a desktop somewhere and somebody is just laughing his tits off.

yeah, the whole "he tried to wire money into the accounts" kinda threw me too. although, technically, if you write a check on an account that you know doesn't have the funds to cover it at that time i think that's a crime. but, you know, let him wire the money in to cover them. guess i'm missing something.

OK folks, time to play Who'll Spend More Time in Jail! Will it be a) the "businessman" who wrote $82 million in bad checks or b) some black dude who pumped $27 worth of gas into his '94 Corolla and drove off without paying? We'll have the answer after these messages!!

Considering he held those "lavish fundraisers" for both Dems and Repubs, I think this guy has some serious pull. Don't know if it can get him out of an $82 million accounting nightmare though. We'll  see. My money is on the black guy, though I have been surprised from time to time.

I wonder what else he was up to that he's trying to cover up? Why in the name of Thor would anyone need $82 million to put in their own account? There's gotta be more to this.

Looks like it has leveled off after going up about 50% in the previous eight years ... and that's supposed to be an indictment of the current US president?

Of course. If he'd gone even a penny over the last Bush budget they'd be screaming about 'tax and spend!!!111!11Entitlements!one3!221!'

Centerpoint: What degree felony is that?


It not a felony to steal only 82 million dollars of stuff. He is a job creator. It not like he once used all two dollars for the day of food stamps and he had already made $50 that day at work.

Incorrect. His budget proposal has a bigger deficit, and spends more money on useless shiat (like war).

There is a privileged class in America, and it is defined by money. Those with money buy favours of politicians with donations, just like dukes did with kings in olden days.

Do let us know when a Wall St fund manager who farks over thousands of people's pensions gets as much jail time as a black person does for having a few rocks of crack.
