More tax dollars at work.
Clemens’ attorneys today filed court papers attacking the credibility of McNamee, calling him a habitual liar. At issue is whether, and to what extent, the defense lawyers and prosecutors can discuss so-called “bad acts” that involve McNamee.
“Brian McNamee is the only person in the entire world who has ever said that he witnessed Mr. Clemens use steroids or human growth hormone at any time in his storied career,” Hardin said in the court papers. “But Mr. McNamee’s past also contains more dirt than a pitcher’s mound.”
You probably already know about the rape allegations in Florida, but Clemens’ lawyers also want to bring up “police misconduct at the NYPD, purported substance abuse and addiction, a conviction for driving while intoxicated, indebtedness and collection actions, tax fraud, prescription drug fraud and distribution, loan fraud, and breaking and entering.” Clemens’ court papers are a fun read… especially since Rusty Hardin doesn’t know how to use Adobe Acrobat to redact secret information.
for his generous support.
