Former City Councilman Orders $177 Bagel, Sentenced To Jail For Five Years
This has to go down as the Most Vengeful Bagel Ever.
But, according to DOI Comissioner Rose Gill Hearn, it was about damn time:
"Larry Seabrook diverted hundreds of thousands of dollars from the public till into the pockets of his favored cronies. Today, he is a convicted felon, stripped of his City Council position, who must serve prison time. His sentence punctuates a powerful message that abusing government power to steal has serious consequences.."
Seabrook will have to submit himself to the authorities by early March. That gives him plenty of time to eat a few cheap bagels.
