QUOTE
"Why was America's inaugural CIO cuffed for petty thievery as 21-year-old? He swiped four dress shirts from J.C. Penney - and made a run for it.

In 1996, according to a police report obtained by The Associated Press, a J.C. Penney security guard watched as future US chief information officer Vivek Kundra put four dress shirts into a shopping bag and left the store without paying. Kundra was arrested after a brief foot chase, the report says, and the shirts - worth $134 - were recovered.

Kundra pleaded guilty to the sub-$300 theft, paid a $100 fine (plus $55 in court costs), and performed 80 hours of community service.

The White House has not responded to our request for comment on the matter, but in speaking with others it has called the petty theft "a youthful indiscretion." Kundra was 21 at the time.

In March, at age of 34, he was tapped by President Barack Obama as the country's first CIO after almost two years as chief technology officer for the local Washington, D.C. government. Just days later, a manager in the D.C. CTO office was arrested on charges of bribery, conspiracy, money laundering, and conflict of interest.

The White House soon put Kundra on leave, citing "an abundance of caution." But he has since returned to work."

"A 1996 Montgomery County, Md., police report obtained by The Associated Press on Wednesday under a public records law shows Vivek Kundra was observed by a security guard putting the men's shirts into a shopping bag and leaving the store without paying. Sgt. Tom Stanton wrote that Kundra was arrested after a brief foot chase and the property was recovered."


Tax evaders and thieves, oh my!

I've never shoplifted. The worse I've ever done was curse, punch a homo in the face for making a kissy face at me, lie intentionally/unintentionally, and fornicate before I got married.

That's it stubborn.gif

Then they have themselves to blame. If it's News, it's worth reading. Current events, ever heard of that term? whistling.gif

When America switches to Sharia Law, the penises of shoplifters will be chopped off and fed to them.

These criminals are the same people we're depending on to save our country as a whole. So quite honestly, it's actually worse than all of America's issues.. because they are the ones we have to depend on, not anyone else.

so someone's past life or something someone dug up that happened 14 years ago is supposed to make me change my view on someone?

i mean when people are young they do alot of things i mena everyone gets in to troble some more than others
if you think that someone is goin to be perfect all the time ya dead wrong
everyone does stupid stuff somewhere in they life
but i mean if it's far far off in the past then diggin it up and throwin it out there what good does it do.
nothing
people are stupid when shit like that comes up cause what's his past record got to do with what he's doin right now
