Friar Tuck: Minister Charged With Stealing Church Funds For Botox, Plastic Surgery, and Other Personal Expenses

f40The Rev. William Blasingame, 66, really need some work. He is accused of stealing tens of thousands of dollars from the North Shore Episcopal church for plastic surgery and Botox injections and prescription drugs. Theft of botox, liposuction, and other cosmetic work seems to be on the rise. One has to look the best for one’s line up.

The Rev. Blasingame is accused of stealing $84,537 over the three years starting in January 2005. He could face 15 years with either botox or liberty for second-degree grand larceny and second-degree criminal possession of stolen property.

In fairness to Blasingame, some of the money was allegedly taken from the Friends of St. Paul’s foundation, which funds the beautification of the church grounds. His defense could be that, as a fixture on church grounds, his own beautification was well within the purpose of the fund. Topiary, tummy tucks . . . it is goes to the glorification of God and his servants.

Authorities, however, take a more mundane approach and object to the use of the funds for club memberships, plastic surgery, Botox injections, prescriptions, car insurance for his personal vehicle and expensive clothes. This included a $245 pair of shoes imported from London.

Cosmetically-challenged criminals are filling our courts, it seems, see e.g., here,

  1. Surgery is also not recommended for anyone who feels surgery will solve their problems or make them look
    like a movie star. The tissue selectivity and markedly diminished blood loss associated with ultrasonic certainly make it an
    attractive option with this strategy. However, remember that the most important thing to do is make sure that your surgeon is
    licensed and experienced and to address any concerns you may have.

  2. And to think that his profession is one of the oldest in the world and Shakespeare could have had a point.

    Ya see, people do not read what words origins are and it gives us all a bad name.

    Lest we say that the suit filed against the ice cream kid to wit. Or should it be he is such a twit?

  3. They nipped Tuck, how awful. Isn’t there something in the bible about burning loins? Maybe he was trying to recreate this biblical reenactment through surgery. This was very cutting of the prosecution.

    P.S. This is a GREAT post!
