You are absolutly correct, BUT the reason people are still talking about him is his colossial ego paired with his unbridled ignorance, and the fact that people still voted for him in spite of that. Sorry too many of his Oooops moments for me, that and his crack pot wife that God had to go through to get him to run for POTUS. UNBELIEVABLE!

wrong

He was spray painting graffiti on government cars parked on the street, and stealing street signs. His name is Michael Fay, he is American, and it was 1993. Sentence: 4 months in jail,$3500 fine and 6 strokes of the cane, reduced to 4 strokes because he appealed that this was too many strokes. Guess he couldn't take it like a man. Bill Clinton also appealed on his behalf that the caning strokes should be reduced. After his sentence Fay was shipped back to the USA.

That same year Fay suffered burns from sniffing butane, and 2 years later "he was cited in Florida for a number of violations, including careless driving, reckless driving, not reporting a crash and having an open bottle of alcohol in a car."

2 years after that: "Fay was arrested for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, charges to which he confessed but was not found guilty because of technical errors in his arrest."

Nice kid.
Not.

Heck of a deal isn't it? It's a shame you, I, and the rest of the taxpayers pick up the tab for insurance for The House, Senate, and the POTUS and their families and can afford nothing close to that good for ourselves. Kind of like that new pay raise they just voted for themselves. It must be nice! Rs Ds neither give a damn about this country or its people, just how much of our money they can stuff into their own pockets. THAT'S A FACT!

The story when it first came out, was that he spat on the sidewalk.You seen to be keeping up with this guy for some reason.Just wanted to be accurate? Being arrested for marijuana doesn't make someone a monster.Did he or did he not, get caned?

Actually I simply Googled it, like anyone with half a brain who really wanted to look up some facts would do. Just as you could have done if you had REALLY wanted to know any of the facts instead of just running your piehole.

The story was never that he spat on a sidewalk, and was never reported as such.

As someone who remembers the incident and trial through following it via the media, as it happened, it was always about automobile vandalism with spray paint, and the uproar some idiots made at the time was over the harshness of the punishment for a "graffiti tagger".
