Lyin Like Ryan: Somebody Owes Us a Dime

Wells Fargo fired a worker for using a fake dime in our neighborhood laundromat almost fifty years ago, and rightly so. But it shouldn’t end there. President Obama should be fired, too, because that laundromat never fully recovered after the loss of that dime… and it could have if he’d kept his promise!

Wells Fargo fired Richard Eggers on July 13, 2012 after discovering he was arrested 49 years ago for putting a cardboard cutout of a dime in a laundry machine at the laundromat. (Some stuff you just can’t make up! And some stuff you can!)

They simply practice what is preached.

The convention released a statement saying, “Two attendees tonight exhibited deplorable behavior. Their conduct was inexcusable and unacceptable. This kind of behavior will not be tolerated.”

I sure hope they weren’t referring to the Security Police?
