California State Assemblywoman Busted for Shoplifting

If you truly love your work, you find yourself taking it home with you. For example, California State Assemblywoman Mary Hayashi, whose job is to expropriate other people’s property on behalf of “social justice,” got so much into the habit of larceny that she did some thieving on behalf of her wardrobe.

Mary-Hayashi

State Assemblywoman Mary Hayashi isn’t smiling in her mug shot, taken after police say she walked out of San Francisco’s Nieman Marcus without paying for $2,450 in merchandise, including leather pants, a black skirt and a white blouse.

Hayashi, a Democrat who has served in the Assembly since 2006, was stopped by store security and taken to the Tenderloin police station for questioning. She was arrested on suspicion of felony grand theft and freed on $15,000 bail. …

Hayashi heads the Assembly Committee on Business, Professions and Consumer Protections and is married to Alameda Superior Court Judge Dennis Hayashi.

Hayashi says she stole the clothes by accident. A more credible defense would be that compared with the massive fortunes California bureauweenies loot from taxpayers, $2,450 isn’t worth wasting court time over.

On a tip from Nobody.

    I’m surprised they mentioned she was a Democrat in the second paragraph, that’s usually buried toward the end of the article that most don’t bother read. Of course if she were a Republican it would have been in the first sentence.

  • Hail The Amberlamps!

    I too am shocked the article mentioned her membership in the CPUSA. Perhaps she did it as a demonstration in solidarity with the Occupiers.

  • Uhh, don’t you think it might be a better idea to hire a lawyer before you hire the PR agent?

  • KHarn

    Wait, she’s cutting back on government employees; she eliminated the TAX MAN and is stealing herself! Think of the SAVINGS.

    if she were a Republican it would have been in the first sentence

    Yep. The headline would’ve said “Crazed Republican in Thieving Rampage” and the article would’ve started out like this: “Bigoted, homophobic, racist State(R) Assemblywoman(R) Mary(R) Hayashi(R)….”

    You can’t be against this and be for Obamunism. Theft is theft whether its direct or by proxy.

    Any bets that she gets less jail time than the Border Patrol guy who rough cuffed a drug smuggler?

    Yikes! She should have stolen a bag for her head.

    Maybe this was some sort of Dem gang initiation. Like she had to steal or join in on the gangrape of a taxpayer before she was accepted and got the tattoo.

  • Yeech!PieFace Thief = Fugly

    F U, whotothewhat. You made me laugh so hard, I lost all of the nitrous I had just inhaled.
