Hey, there are a lot of people getting getting much longer sentences for their crimes than Paul Manafort. They clearly forgot the main rule of crime: be rich, white, and well-connected. So, for example, a woman who voted while on parole (because she didn’t realize her felony conviction for tax fraud still made her ineligible to vote while she was out on parole) will still be in jail when Paul Manafort gets out
There’s lots more. The message is pretty clear: if you’re a powerful person, you won’t get punished the way the little people are. Can’t imagine why people are cynical about our system of justice.
