Hookergate Enters Oliver Stone Land

TPM asks a good question.

Why does a 64 year old man take an 8 year prision sentence? Don't politicians normally start squealing like a pig the minute the "p" of plea bargain crosses a prosecutors lips?

When I first read this a scene from Oliver Stone's "JFK" came to mind. You know the one. Where Justice Warren confronts Jack Ruby in prison and ask him to talk. Ruby responds, "Can you protect me? You don't know these people".

Life. Art. Take your pick.
