Plain old dirt

I wouldn't be inclined to post this except for the political connections. Team Trump seems to be a lightning rod for sleeze.

The [53-year-old] wife of a lawyer tasked with monitoring ethics in President Donald Trump’s business trust was arrested Tuesday afternoon after “suspicious” activity with a Virginia inmate in the backseat of a car outside a jail.

The [23-year-old] inmate, who told police he and Burchfield had been having sex, also had... contraband items on his person, including [unidentified pills,] cigarettes and vitamin supplements, according to the complaint. The inmate told investigators that he and Burchfield had been meeting for a month.

Burchfield’s husband is a member of the Republican National Lawyers Association...worked for President George W. Bush during his 2000 effort to [block] a vote recount...[and] also chaired Crossroads GPS, Karl Rove's [group].

In January 2017, Trump named Bobby Burchfield as the outside ethics adviser to his Revocable Trust, a complicated entity that Trump’s lawyers have used to deflect scrutiny over Trump’s continued ties with his businesses.

Like I said, a lightning rod for sleeze. And that last line is remarkably plain-spoken: "deflect scrutiny" indeed.

A revocable trust is not an inherently "complicated entity"; I suspect a number of folks on this forum have them.

It was the wife, not the lawyer.

"She has been charged with unauthorized delivery in jail, a misdemeanor." Seems like the inmate was making the delivery.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.
