This is just too damn funny

Philly traffic court nominee Willie Singletary has a problem: He's been found guilty of reckless driving, driving without a license, careless driving, owes over eleven thousand dollars in fines, and there's a bench warrant out for his arrest. $11,000 in fines. While running as the Democrat nominee for traffic court judge, Singletary addressed a crowd of supporters:

"I'm running for Traffic Court Judge, right. And I need some money, I'm gonna tell y'all just like it is. I need some money. I got some stuff I gotta get - do. But If y'all could get $20 cause y'all gonna need me in traffic court, am I right about that?"

"Everybody say Amen." CROWD: AMEN! "Hold up, don't move, I need you before you leave, come right here to the center and drop a donation in the black ... pocket now if y'all want me to get you, y'all gonna need my hook-up right?" CROWD: YEAH! "Right?" CROWD: Yeah!

I bet you do, Willie! Those donations'd sure come in handy for all those outstanding fines, eh?

Unbelievable.
