When I saw this was Vermont, I was sure it was going to be Bigfoot.

I don't see what's at issue here.  They were both on equal terms, mentally speaking.

"A good person with ethics would have definitely done something different," he said.

And, not coincidentally, a good person with ethics is rarely worth millions of dollars.

You need a tissue to stop those waterworks? Maybe a step stool to help you get up on that cross?

A politician being selfish and dirty?

But because he is an elected official, even if they do find him guilty of something, I bet the Governor pays a modest fine or gives a small monetary amount to the disabled man which in no way will equal the proper compensation.

See kids this is how the rich get richer. Dem or Rep doesn't matter.

I wish we could get back to the days when the majority hated and loathed ALL politicians.

if i was a scumbag wealthy politician doing a scam deal i would have used a company or person far removed from my name to do so. makes me wonder why Hillary-Trump here didn't exercise caution.

And neither did you. You just came in the thread, threw mud then ran off. If it's so important, you could have listed it here.

Next up: Farker gets upset because a crime story didn't list the "race" of the suspect.

A politician doing something unethical, yay. No affiliation was mentioned, but since it seems (at this time) no sex is involved, I'm guessing Democrat.

We were done in one, Gentlemen. Governor William J LePetomaine.

You've got it half right.

I wish we could get back to the days when the majority respected their politicians and the politicians deserved it.

"It's my homestead," he said. "You know, I planned on dying here."

HEY, HEY heeeeeey there now mister downer.  There is plenty of time left for you to die there before this is over.  And this being America.........why die there alone?

/not suggesting anything, just throwing that out there.  Its a free country right?!?!

Because it's a win-win for him.  A) Republican - Dirty crooked politician looking out for his bank account   B)Democratic - Liberal biased media.

Did you know that the dude holding her hand shot himself in the temple last year? And didn't die? And farkING CALLED 911 TO SAY WHAT HAPPENED?

/ I think he toasted his eyes and went blind. I feel bad for the mentally disabled dude and for this actor.

The Duke Boys woulda exposed the scam, saved the homestead, put the governor behind bars, and wrecked 2.75 Dodge Chargers while doing it!

The Governer is a dick for taking advantage of this guy but who the fark puts a guy that openly admits he is not the sharpest knife in the drawer in charge of a $200k+ piece of property?

Even Forset Gump knew he was a bit "starchy" in the head, but Jenny was still a coont for dumping him.

In California it wouldn't get you shiat either. I have been looking at land in some other states and you can do a lot with $200K if you want to move to the middle of America. It's getting tempting.

There was a quite a discussion on FARK when he did it. The 911 audio is pretty sad.

I've seen some california real estate that didn't seem to bad to me but I have property in MA and NY so I guess it's all relative...

It's useless to identify with either party, politicians are simply manipulating people with subterfuge.  I'm with you on this one.

I've been looking in upstate NY there are deals to be had but work in my field is hard to come by up there.

...Hazel says after the governor bought Dodge's place, Shumlin wanted his taxes lowered.
"He did suggest that, you know, this was a worthless property and it isn't worth what we had it in for," Hazel said.
Hazel reassessed the property, slashing its appraised value by $93,000.
"I took the value down to the cost of the foundation," Hazel said. "It's unusual to see something drop that far."
Hazel denies Shumlin got special treatment, but admits it was hard to ignore that he's the state's leader.


Huh...

No other family to protect him from this? This is just sad.
