I Don’t Know; This Seems More Like a Bill Clinton Cabinet Position

Filed under: General,Obama — Patterico @ 8:33 pm



The L.A. Times reports:

“Girls Gone Wild” founder Joe Francis was arrested Monday afternoon after failing to appear for a hearing earlier in the day in a federal tax-evasion case.

. . . .

Last year, a grand jury in Reno accused Francis of two counts of tax evasion. He has pleaded not guilty. Prosecutors allege Francis improperly deducted more than $20 million from his companies.

A commenter at the L.A. Times web site beats us all to the obvious joke:

I guess this qualifies Francis for appointment to Obama’s Cabinet.

Almost. He has the crucial tax evasion qualification. But has he ever been a lobbyist?

  1. He has begged for a federal bailout, but I doubt he ever registered.

  4. I don’t know about lobbying, but some might argue he’s certaintly organized communities of drunken college babes for the betterment of mankind. I think the Administration is big into community organizing.

  11. If he’s sleazy, he’s ipso facto qualified.

    We need a new LATIN phrase for these slimeballs. Anyone?

  12. Well, now that the the position of Chief Performance Officer needs a new nominee, why not Mr Francis? Who else can get so many people to perform for virtually nothing, and do it on camera?

  13. Mr Francis would definitely be a good fit. He’s already experienced at orchestrating and logging drunken… activities.
