You can't make this stuff up.

Oh, Jesus ...

As part of Griles’s plea, he is supposed to receive “10 months — five months in jail and five months in a halfway house or in home detention.” His lawyers are now arguing that Griles should receive no prison time and instead be allowed to perform “community service.”

But one of the two organizations he wants to do “community service” for — the American Recreation Coalition (ARC) — is actually a major lobbying firm that apparently benefited under Griles’ tenure in the Bush administration...

Bottom line: Griles is asking that his punishment be to perform the same activities that landed him in jail.

In unrelated news, convicted pedophiles have now begun lobbying to spend their community service helping children. Yeah, that'll work. What can possibly go wrong?

Maybe we should give him a Presidential medal of Freedom first.
