Enjoy the Slammer, Mel - Part II
Looks like tomorrow will be the big day that Mel will have to face the music. Last week, Mel's lawyers lashed out at the WSJ, claiming that the paper "belittled Mr. Weiss’s supporters," and failed to emphasize that "Mr. Weiss’s efforts improved access to justice for the poor." GIVE ME A BREAK! I am sure John Stossel could do a whole show negating the veracity of such a ridiculous assertion.
Aside from the broader issue of Mel pleading guilty to his involvement in an elaborate corrupt kickback scheme, I can only now reflect upon what a "mentor" Mel has been to the legions of debt-ridden law graduates that have been pumped out by toilet law schools every year. Despite earning millions off his poor victims, I fondly recall how Mel would hire Sleazy Temp Agency LLC to trick fresh faced recent grads into coming to work for him at a low rate with no benefits. Too bad Sleazy Agency LLC didn't disclose the fact that after having worked for Mel, you would soon find yourself blacklisted by every major American defense firm. Mel's firm also required temp staff to march around the office with giant "TEMP" ID's around their necks; ID's were bright yellow with giant "TEMP" letters written on them.
