Actually this is not "Christian love". This is a case of a scamster using the trust factor often found within churches to prey upon innocent victims. Christ did not teach us to do this to our brothers and sisters. He certainly did not act with God's approval.

Ken is small potatoes compared to Sam Zell who bilks elderly folks on a regular basis. I guess if you have enough money you can avoid jail.

Twinkle Toes is going to get his do, if Joe had his way after being scammed, there would be no need for prison time, just grave side services. I feel sorry for the children, yet those hidden offshore accounts?

Typical Santa Cruz liberals, going after a god-fearing hard-working businessman, while murderers roam the streets. If we deregulate business in this country, people would be less tempted to commit financial crimes.

"btw he was a republican."

-Exactly. If he was a Demoncrat, the DA wouldn't be going after him like this.

Seems Kenny Dolittle did a lot, eight children to carry on his honorable name, scammed millions from the elderly, was the guard of the honor among thieves
in D.C.. Good going Kenny, I knew you had it in you. Can you give me a number of one of those off shore accounts? Needy! LOL

He was convicted by a jury of his peers for using the bible to rip off the elderly. Not because he was republican you tool. Wake up and stop sniffing cry baby glenn beck's dirty underwear.

That is my point, why should the state have any say in what was a business transaction between two consenting adults? Read some Ayn Rand, you idiots.

Nice analysis. Anything goes with consenting adults? What if you make a representation that turned out to be false and that false statement was bolstered by bible verses ? Go back to weaping with your hero Glenn "the tool" Beck.

I love it that a Glenn Beck fan is defending a criminal in the name of free enterprise! Perfect. Oh and throwing Ayn Rand in for good measure. Classic.
