I hardly expect the prison system will have shoes in his size.

He's lucky it was CA (?) and not TX, because there they would have sent him to the electric hand buzzer for sure.

Okay, so he gets in trouble for holding someone's crime over their head, while the illegal aliens involved are presumably still here. (I say more than likely because the way the laws are set up, if I am not too mistaken, an illegal immigrant who testifies in a crime as a witness or victim may get a temporary visa for a couple of years.)

The judge declined the proffered bulbous nose and attendant offer to "squeeze the wheeze" and sentenced the defendant to prison and normal-sized footwear.

He thought being disguised as a Democrat Congressman while extorting the illegals would allow him to blend in with the crowd.

You know what's NOT fair? When a man dresses like a clown it's very obvious. But when a clown dresses like a man nobody would know.......

Reminds me of the guy who wanted to get out of the military for being gay. He was told he needed signed affidavits from 3 of his lovers. It makes sense to not let people say something false about themselves to get out of military service. However, he considered this a serious breech of his privacy and that of others, and he didn't want to get anyone in trouble. So guess what he did? He reported to service in full drag. They immediately gave him the paperwork to leave. Your statement reminded me of this. It is obvious when a person dresses in drag, but when an LGBT person dresses and presents in a stereotypically "normal" and socially expected fashion for their gender, who can really tell?
