Give him sex, get your green card

Former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer broke the law and cheated on his wife when he hired aBaichu
prostitute. But paying for sex — especially paying $1,000 an hour — seems a lot more honorable than what another New Yorker has allegedly been doing. Isaac R. Baichu, 46, an immigrant from Guyana, has used his power as an immigration adjudicator to try to coerce at least one woman to have sex with him.

He hinted, she said, at his power to derail her life and deport her
relatives, alluding to a brush she had with the law before her
marriage. He summoned her to a private meeting. And at noon on Dec. 21,
in a parked car on Queens Boulevard, he named his price — not realizing
that she was recording everything on the cellphone in her purse.

“I
want sex,” he said on the recording. “One or two times. That’s all. You
get your green card. You won’t have to see me anymore.” [Link]

I’ll never understand how any man can force a woman to have sex with him and actually enjoy it. If you were so desperate for sex, Isaac, why didn’t you do what so many other men do — get yourself a girlfriend, even if yours would undoubtedly be inflatable?

The
agent insisted that she had to trust him. “I wouldn’t ask you to do
something for me if I can’t do something for you, right?” he said, and
reasoned, “Nobody going to help you for nothing,” noting that she had
no money. [Link]

Nobody’s going to help you for nothing? I don’t know about that, Isaac. Your fellow Guyanese immigrant, Veeramuthu Kalimuthu, just saved a man’s life for nothing. He’s a true hero. I’m sure you’ve come across a hero or two in your time, even if it was just at the sandwich shop.

He described himself as the single father of a
10-year-old daughter, telling her, “I need love, too,” and predicting,
“You will get to like me because I’m a nice guy.” [Link]

You’ve got to give him credit. He has really boosted the reputation of men, because if he qualifies as a nice guy, most of us qualify for sainthood.
