Skip to comments.Woman Says She Took DA's Vehicle to Pay for Husband's Sex Change (Louisiana)
Posted on 10/03/2007 8:57:09 AM PDT by LdSentinal
There is a bizarre story about a district attorney's stolen sport utility vehicle and the accused thief behind bars. The suspected crook claims she stole the vehicle from a New Orleans hotel to pay for a medical procedure for her husband. However, the story doesn't end there. WAFB's Keitha Nelson has more.
Tony Falterman is the district attorney for Ascension, Assumption and St. James parishes. Falterman's keys could open a lot of doors, and in the wrong hands, change thousands of lives. He says, "My keys are the most important thing in my life."
So, when Falterman's SUV was stolen, his mind went into overdrive, wondering about what could potentially happen if the thieves figured out they had more than just a vehicle to strip. He says, "I live in my vehicle. I had my firearm in there. In the city of New Orleans, in the wrong hands, someone could have been killed with it."
The district attorney says he thought it was safe to valet park in the Marriott while at a conference in New Orleans. The thief was caught on camera in the Marriott's parking garage, but Falterman says they had a hard time figuring out if the person was a man or a women.
As it turns out, "One of the thieves is a transvestite. The wife is stealing the car so she can raise enough money for the husband to have a sex change operation." Falterman is smiling today because his sport utility vehicle was found on a side street in New Orleans, with a mere scratch. His most valuable items, his gun and keys, were found inside.
As for that sex change operation, the district attorney says those thieves will have to find another way to pay for it, after serving time. Falterman says the thief is pretty slick. The woman claimed to be a relative of Falterman's and asked the valet for the keys. Falterman says the one thing bugging him is that his badge is still missing.
He/She is a Democrat.
She should have just stolen the gun and shot hubby’s cojones off!
Her: “But the badge goes soooo well with that pink dress I bought him!”
Okay, so the husband loves dressing up in women's clothes so much that now he wants to have an operation to remove his schwanz, and the wife is so supportive of his decision that she steals a car to pay for it. Does she think sex will be as much fun once the guy becomes a girl? This is the Oprah Generation gone completely nuts, although that is probably not the best word to use, given the circumstances.
But...but...how could that be? Guns are eeevil and no Dem worth his/her salt would ever own one.
(I don't really need the sarcasm tag, do I?)
>> As for that sex change operation, the district attorney says those thieves will have to find another way to pay for it, after serving time.
Most likely, they’ll force the taxpayers to pay for the operation while in prison.
There are key chains available that detach into two parts. When you valet park, or anywhere else they need your car key, such as when you are having your car serviced, you just detach that key and keep the rest of them. Piece of cake, and not rocket science. Anyone who lives in a city should have one of these.
Well, it seems like a worthy cause to me. Anyway, in the wrong hands that thing could have kilt somebody. Not the gun, the SUV.
Oh dear, you don’t know Louisiana do you? This isn’t oprah generation gone wild. This is the way people are down here. We do weird stuff. Always have. Always will. That is why writers love to write about us.
I simply avoid valet parking and don’t patronize establishments that require it.
I hate valet parking. If you can’t provide a place for me to park my car, you probably don’t want my business.
Given that the offense happened in Orleans Parish, what are the chances that the criminals will actually do time.
“Does she think sex will be as much fun once the guy becomes a girl?”
Maybe the wife decided that she was a lesbian...and the husband decided that he was a lesbian trapped in a mans’ body. I think this scenario was covered on Jerry Springer previously.
Some of the best food I ever ate was boiled in a garbage can with a few nylons floating around in it....
I did spend three years at Keesler AFB in Biloxi, MS, and visited often in New Orleans. I even made it up to Baton Rouge on a few occasions. I have no argument with your assertion that folks there can be a bit strange. However, stealing a car so that your husband would have enough money to have his johnson removed—man, that’s really weird! Cancer surgery? Sure. Emergency appendectomy? Certainly? But a Lorena Bobbit operation? Weird, I tell you, weird.
I know, I know--it tastes like chicken.
That would do it. Just my beef but I wish they wouldn’t refer to the medical procedure as a “sex change”. It isn’t a sex change. It is merely sex organ mutilation. No surgery or medical treatment can create a woman from a man or a man from a woman.
Evil SUV's act on their own -- the driver has nothing to do with it...
Looseana style baby ;)
There was a scam going on wherein a thief would rent or create a uniform and stand in front of a restaurant pretending to be the valet parking attendant. He’d give you a phony receipt card and you’d give him the keys to your Mercedes, BMW or whatever. So simple, it can hardly fail.
Rush calls the latter operation an "addadictomy."
did you eat something that tasted like chicken?
I think it was alligator.
Took me a moment to figure this one out: had to say it outloud. Okay, I slept lousy last night. LOL
it’s mis-spelled, LOL
“The wife is stealing the car so she can raise enough money for the husband to have a sex change operation.”....Darwin awards to them both!
Well, if she had stolen the car for his cancer surgery, many states would be implicated,,my guess is Oklahoma.
If she stole it for a gun for his collection, I would guess Texas or Arizona or N Dakota.
For the appendectomy? Mississippi girls do that kind of thing.
But a sex change? I knew it had to be a Louisiana girl. We do that kind of thing all the time you know!
Dog Day Afternoon Redux.
How the hell can it be misspelled? It's a made-up word. Should I have gone with "addadictome?" :)
only if you need one
otherwise “my” is something that is already yours....
I guess I was thinking about the way "my" is pronounced at the end of "appendectomy."
