Get out!

…even as he faces a Dec. 2 political corruption trial in what he called an “overly zealous” prosecution based on “false factual allegations.”

If the “allegations” are based on facts, then doesn’t that mean that they, by definition are not false? Oh, wait. I’m a scientist. I think way too logically to understand law.

Actually, regardless of your point of reference, the whole article is hilarious. I’m placing a bet that before this whole thing is over, he’ll be quoted saying, “I’ll be goddamn. Bitch set me up.”
