Conrad Black is now in jail where he belongs

Conrad Black

I wonder if Barbara is looking forward to conjugal visits? Christ, who could even sleep with this scum-bag?

From Wikipedia...

Conrad Moffat Black, Baron Black of Crossharbour, PC, OC, KCSG (born 25 August 1944, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada) is a former financier, newspaper magnate, biographer and has been convicted of mail fraud and obstruction of justice in the United States.[1]

Black is Canadian-born, but publicly renounced his Canadian citizenship in 2001 in order to accept a life peerage in the British House of Lords, an offer blocked by then Prime Minister of Canada Jean Chr├ętien. He is married to Barbara Amiel, a British-born journalist. During his career Black owned newspapers in a number of countries, including the Daily Telegraph, the Chicago Sun Times, the Jerusalem Post and 400 newspapers in North America. He launched the Canadian National Post.

Black was convicted in United States federal court on July 13, 2007 on multiple counts of fraud and sentenced December 10, 2007 to serve 78 months in federal prison and pay a U.S. $125,000 fine. The BBC reported at the time: "Black, who remained impassive as the verdicts were read out, was found guilty of taking money owed to investors in the form of 'non-compete' payments originating from the sale of newspaper titles."[2] [3] Black has announced an appeal. Black has been ordered to report to a U.S. federal prison outside of Miami on March 3, 2008. [4]

Wikipedia can now update its records on Conrad Black.

As of March 3, 2008 this capitalist crook is now in jail.


What's the hold-up with putting the entire bunch of capitalists in jail where these corrupt thieves belong?

Black goes to prison for stealing from his capitalist buddies.

Everyday these capitalists steal from working people.

Here on the Iron Range these capitalist pigs are hailed as "philanthropists."
