‘Tis Pity She’s a Whore

Ah, once there was a time when this flower of entitled Bush-era youth was fleecing the taxpayers at $300 million a pop. Now he’s selling his ass for $399.99.  Fitting, no pun intended: (h/t naplesnews.com)

A Miami-Dade County man once accused of selling old ammunition to the U.S. government was arrested Thursday in Immokalee on accusations of prostitution.

David Mordechai Packouz, 30, was apprehended at Motel 82, 1700 State Road 82, according to an arrest report. Packouz agreed to have sex with an undercover Collier County deputy for $400, detectives said.

Packouz, of Miami Beach, gain national notoriety in 2008 when his company, AEY Inc., was accused of buying 40-year-old Chinese ammunition from Albania, repacking it and selling it to the Army, with whom it had a $298 million contract, for use by Afghan soldiers. The story garnered headlines in publications like The New York Times and Rolling Stone.

Packouz pleaded guilty in May of 2009 to conspiracy to defraud the United States and was sentenced to 14 months of probation and seven months of home detention, according to federal records. As a condition of his probation, he was allowed to continue working as a self-employed massage therapist, records show.

Packouz was released from the Naples Jail Center on Friday afternoon on $500 bond. He faces a misdemeanor charge of prostitution.

As it turns out, the line between “makers” and “takers” is thinner than I previously thought, and much more literal.  Would that this would happen to all of them, many of whom would obviously have to charge a lot less.  My favorite part is that he was allowed to keep his, uh, “massage therapy” job.  Perhaps the judge recognized that at least he was (for once) making an honest living, and Republicans do honor hard work, you know.
