Dumocrat Politician’s Lawyer Argues in Court That His Client is Too Stupid To Know His Corruption Was a Crime
That’s a novel defense. This is in California, so the jury might acquit.
This was a big story more than 2 years ago. The idiots are finally in court and they are pleading idiocy.
Oscar Hernandez is illiterate, has no high school degree and didn’t even finish elementary school, defense attorney Stanley Friedmand told jurors.
Hernandez and five former members of the Bell City Council are on trial, accused of stealing $1.3million in exorbitant pay from the working-class city of 35,000.
All six elected officials drew salaries of up to $100,000 for serving on boards that seldom met and accomplished little.
