Watch: Keith Olbermann and Michael Musto Discuss George Rekers


Keith Olbermann and Michael Musto discussed the Rekers scandal on last night's Countdown

Watch it, AFTER THE JUMP...

Meanwhile, the Miami Herald has published PDFs of the letter from AG Bill McCollum requesting Rekers be hired (here) and the purchase requisition for his services (below):

"The state planned to cap Rekers' fee at $60,900 -- but paid him $120,693 after he exceeded his contracted hours. 'It is not unusual for estimated costs to require adjustment during the course of trial preparation,' said Sandi Copes, communications director for the Florida Attorney General's Office. Copes said the extra hours were not agreed to in writing, but 'merely by discussion.' 'A total of 402.31 hours was submitted for payment by invoice attached. Of the 402.31 hours, 203 was paid by Direct Order,' according to a 2009 state settlement agreement. 'We accept responsibility for not obtaining a written document for the 199.31 remaining hours. However, the monies are legally due.'"

  1. Why would it take 400 hours to whip up a bunch of lies? I think we can add 'thief' to Mr. Rekers titles.

  2. Oh great -- Musto outed Justin Bieber. Been waiting for that one. (Justin's been using Mylie Cyrus as a beard.)

  4. I love Michael Musto for three reasons:

    1) totally queeny and he gets on TV
    2) his one-liners
    3) he's the cleanup crew for ridiculous stories about ridiculous conservatives. His commentary on a story is official indication that the story has become completely ridiculous and hilarious.

  5. Michael Musto is kind of creepy. Does he ever say anything original or is his entire shtick just repeating other people's half-baked witticisms? Keith Olbermann should think twice before giving the guy any more air time.

  6. really? i think the kid is like 11. what was it like for you when you were a kid, michael?

  7. Nothing more unfunny than someone desperately trying to appear to be.

    And why is Musto being consulted? His being gay makes him someone worth consulting on this issue? I don't get it.

  8. With this appearance, we have officially hit bottom on this topic. I think Musto must have spent the entire afternoon before this show thinking up what he thought were clever one liners. If this is what we have to say about George Rekers then it's time to move on to a new subject.

  9. Justin Bieber is all of 16. One word, UNDESCENDED!

  10. If Justin Bieber can go on "dates" with Kim Kardashian (sp?), then he grown enough to be speculated about. Please.

  11. Ooops, sorry, I posted the above comment in the wrong thread.

  12. Pardon my ignorance, but was the $120,000 paid to this slime-slug taxpayers' money or from a private fund, and was that fund claiming tax exemption for charitable status ?

    Posted by: JackFknTwist | May 12, 2010 12:19:03 PM

  13. It was taxpayer money.

  14. Bading,
    You AND Justin Bieber might not have been "descended" at age 16 but don't think that is the norm. You just developed late!
    Most everyone in my circle of friends at that age, myself included, "descended" at 13-14 years old. (and boy did I have fun! ;p)

  15. Q, I mean, asshole. He's a kid you dumb fuck.
