DEAR RICK, IF IT WASN’T YOUR WIFE
(or THE MAE WAYNE SCANDAL)
Let’s say hypothetically, you heard that Leo Clarke’s wife was getting paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to consult on one single event. Let’s say that her expertise in the matter was average but not world renowned and that her husband actually had more experience and savvy than she did on the issue. Let’s say the government was so impressed with her non-success that they offered to retain her services year round for more hundreds of thousands.
Would you write an article about that?
Would you call News Spin about that?
Would you call a spade a spade or would you piss in our eyes and call it Mae Wayne?
TWO HUNDRED AND HOW MANY THOUSAND DOLLARS?
If Leo Clarke's wife cost that much for ANYTHING, Rick wouldn't you be going after that story? Much less for producing a dud like HOT COUTURE 2014, which by all reports…I’m sorry, there weren’t really any reports of that…my bad dog. I didn’t think it would achieve irrelevance this quickly.
The NCA scandal was less than that. The UN Funds Scandal was not much more than that. I guess what I’m trying to say is that it is a scandalous amount of money for a fashion guru of Mae Wayne’s stature to be earning. It is not in line with her market value.
She could not earn that amount of money for doing the same work anywhere else in the world. This means that her consultancy fee can only fairly be compared to a scandal.
If it was anyone else’s wife, wouldn’t you be pissed?
Your Most Deliberate Prodigal
P.S. I’m sure you’ve heard by now that Leo Clarke’s wife seriously being considered by the nitwits at the foreign affairs ministry for an income of hundreds of thousands for a job she has no experience in. She’s going to be Minister-Counselor at the United Nations. Not that you have inside track on what Leo is up to...but because you are so well connected to the Well-Paid Wives' Club.
