DENNY HECKER: The Flim-Flam Man Tops Himself Again!

Denny Hecker is the comedy gift that keeps on giving. Today a sympathetic donor gave our hero for court ordered restitution the $125,000 he "inadvertently borrowed" from his and Tamitha's joint 401K account. Tomorrow our Dapper Denny will probably announce that he is shocked--SHOCKED!--by an IRS agent's discovery of Swiss and Cayman Islands bank accounts in his name worth $35 million. Charles Dickens on his best day couldn't create a corrupt business outlaw like our Denny.

Have fun while you can, Denny, because when the legal drama is done you'll be spending 25 years in prison, thanks in no small part to the obnoxious and inept performance of your bankruptcy lawyer Bill Skolnick, who may end up being disbarred if Chrysler Financial's attorneys file an ethics complaint against him with the Lawyer's Professional Responsibility Board.

Denny Hecker, have you met your presumptive cell mate Tom Petters?

Maybe you should look into how many tens of thousands of dollars Tom Petters and Frank Vennes Jr., Hecker's buddies in the Minnesota Ponzi Club who preyed on good Christian groups, donated to your heroes Timmy the Tool Pawlenty, Norm Coleman and Michele Bachmann.

Will this be the week that Denny takes off? He has no chance of winning.

His "mystery friend" is an account he's set up overseas. What a crook.

Ralph Thomas was the one who paid the courts $75,000 that Dennis was to pay back in January, and another $50,000 back in November. Bet ya he knows all the hiding spots where money is being kept. Something tells me there if you dig hard enough you'll find a lot of dirt on this guy too. Since their "friends" maybe they can share a cell together.

The $125,000 probably came from the money Hecker gave to Rowan to hide over the last two years.

That's chump change for Mrs. & Mr Hecker. For being bankrupt these people come up with huge amounts of money. The premium for a 3 million dollar life insurance policy must be 30,000.00 per year. Doesn't he have to disclose to the IRS who this "friend" is? I don't see how she gets to keep a box of cash when they've filed bankruptcy. I wonder where this cash is stashed.

Maybe you should have had it inspected by a third-party mechanic... Hell, I learned that when I was 16.

Oh, and stop being childish. Leave Obama out of it.

"The kids will now be taken care of," Hecker said as he left the courtroom. "That's good news."

If Hecker only knew how discusting that sounds. Shame on you Hecker for even putting your kids in a situation where there was any doubt.

People like him are so fun to deal with - seriously! You just need to be patient and let them do all the work for you. He's convinced he has everyone fooled, but the only one he's fooling is himself. So you go on letting him believe he's got you fooled, and let him dig his hole deeper and deeper, until finally he's in so deep, there's no way out. And he doesn't even see it coming! These judges are being nice and patient, and they're all beating him at his game, and he won't even realize it until the cell door slams behind him when it's all over.
