Blonde Joke

Two bit paperhanger and convicted bigamist Eric Eugene Cooper was sentenced to fifteen years in prison yesterday for altering a government document. His trial was enlivened by the appearance of seven ex-wives who came to testify against him. Cooper, who once joined the navy only to wash out of basic training, took to wearing dress whites and passing himself off as a naval officer. This shtick seems to have gone over well with the ladies, judging from the seven wives, plus girlfriends and fiancées in ten years time. The Chronicle photo of them rowed up in court looked like some kind of blonde joke, but it was not funny to Coopers lawyer, who convinced his client to change course and accept the state’s plea agreement before the last three witnesses even came to the stand.
Cooper appeared in court in a wheelchair, claiming to be suffering from diabetes and bone cancer. Have to wonder if that’s his latest act.
In the movie version, I’ll have the lawyer his grandmother hired for him be an imposter too.

Charly, it's worse than that.
A Chron editorial today says he walked after numerous encounters with police, and Federal authorities failed to run down tips about his charade. At least one father-in-law did a background check too. Popeye Cooper is the Mohammed Atta or Angel Maturano Resendez of the internet dating scene. As for his bone cancer?
I hope it's boner cancer!
