Church organist in Oregon linked to fraud

A 66-year-old church organist has been charged with defrauding Washington state by collecting about $400,000 in workers' compensation checks that were intended for her mother, who died 18 years ago. Read the story here. We all sin and have sinned, right? But at least own up to your sins. Lois Bachhuber of Portland, who had power of attorney for her mother, allegedly signed certification forms saying that her mother was still alive and entitled to benefits from the state Department of Labor and Industries. But her mother, Viola Elsner, died in March 1988."She continued to submit to the state annual forms saying, 'Mom's fine, please keep the checks a-rollin,'" Check out this quote:
Bachhuber said "In her mind, her mother was still here."

That is a classic line! Here are some other possible ones we can use:

1. Officer, In my mind I was driving the speed limit.

2. Teacher, I didn't cheat, in my mind I studied all night.

3. I didn't steal that car, In my mind I paid for it!

4. I didn't hit my sister, in my mind I hugged her!

5. In my mind I was baptised by immersion and a proper administrator! :)

$400,000? Why didn't the government discover this sooner? Unbelievable! What are some of the best excueses you have heard for sins?

How about, "I'm only posting these private emails in order to expose the truth."

Going for the insanity plea already, are they? Nicely played, Lois. Nicely played.

When I became a pastor, a pastor friend of mine gave me two words of advise...keep your hands off the money and the organist. Sounds like in OR that would be one word of advise!

Dear Brother Kevin,

nccard is referring to an enormously long exchange over on Founders that is raging right now.

Love in Christ,

Jeff
