‘Entitled’ no more: Mary McCarty speaks from federal prison camp

by George Bennett | January 23rd, 2011

Former Palm Beach County commissioner Mary McCarty, serving time for a felony federal honest services fraud conviction, sat with a Palm Beach Post reporter last week for an exclusive interview at the minimum-security prison camp in Bryan, Texas.

She talked about feeling “entitled” to play by her own set of rules when she was a commissioner, about her daily routine at the prison camp, about former colleagues/felons Tony Masilotti and Warren Newell, about the recent Supreme Court decision that narrowed the honest services fraud law and about the questions that arise among her fellow inmates when they see the avalanche of mail McCarty gets.

  1. Organized Political Corruption Says:

    I amd suprised the supreme didn’t abolish all laws concerning corrupt politicians! If they tried to enforce them they would have to release every drug convict in every county jail, state and federal pen in the USA and replace them with crooked politicians! Even then I doubt there would be enough room for them! These crooked suckers just keep lying and covering for their criminal friends!

  2. Melissa Says:

    I just hope Mary tells them all about Burt and Wexler. Wexler got away by resigning….oh Burt!

  3. Angela Says:

    That’s the promises these corrupt pollies make to each other! If you get caught we will make sure you can resign and collect you retirement and benefits!
    These make believe state attorney’s they call prosecutors never prosecute one of their own and their “family’ has been expanded to include all that sucking at the public teat and drinking from the public trough!

  4. Mark Browne Says:

    Mary, you’re not missed here at all. Not even a little bit and no, I don’t wish the best for you either. You are where you belong. Good bye and good riddance.

  5. Blackman Says:

    Mary McCarty squeezed, stepped on, stomped on, kicked, and ruined people who disagreed with her. She had clout up to the state-level lawmakers, and she used that clout to push people around. I don’t feel sorry for her at all. She got off too easy. Her apologies are empty until she publically apologize directly to those she hurt. Until then, it’s just words coming from her mouth. Meaningless!
