Those crazy Public Defenders

Woman sends crude message after pay error

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho (AP) -- Kootenai County commissioners have suspended a public defender who allegedly sent them a crude message in a greeting card about a mistake in her pay increase.

Public defender Linda Payne delivered the missive after the county miscalculated pay benefits and told county attorneys they could expect about $5,000 more per year than was actually approved - then retracted it the next day.

Payne's hand-delivered greeting card was accompanied by a jar of petroleum jelly and a tube of red lipstick.

"The next time you choose to give us something please lubricate and/or kiss first," she wrote in the June 9 note.

Very classy - sets a truly good example for her clients, too.

Maybe I have a weird sense of humor...I think that's hilarious!

Kind of reminds me of how I feel every time I go to buy a new car.
