sfgate ^ | 10/28/11

Posted on 10/28/2011 2:52:24 PM PDT by NativeNewYorker

Democratic Assemblywoman Mary Hayashi of Castro Valley has been charged with felony grand theft after being caught on video surveillance allegedly shoplifting more than $2,000 worth of merchandise from San Francisco’s Neiman Marcus store on Union Square, prosecutors say.

Hayashi, 45, who has served in the Assembly since 2006 — and is married to Alameda Superior Court Judge Dennis Hayashi — was arraigned Thursday in San Francisco Superior Court. She had earlier posted $15,000 bail.

Surely she could afford a relatively paltry $2000 worth of Neiman-Marcus gewgaws. Theft this large is still a felony. It makes no sense for the woman to risk it.

Even tho she is part of the 1%, she was just trying to get in on that redistribution of wealth that the Dem party is so about.

Felony Grand theft for $2500 worth of goods? When were these numbers established? 1979 when a fully equipped Buick Electra 225 was something like $3,000?

I understand that, but they shouldn't be in positions of public trust where they have access to, and decisions on the disbursement of, public funds.

A former boss told me of a lady in town who was a known shoplifter. Her husband had a deal worked out with the storekeepers to just bill him for anything she stole and not contact authorities. Of course this was a small town in the 50’s so they agreed. You are right, it is probably a compulsive disorder- not excusing it, just explaining why she would take such a risk.

She’s a part of the OccupyNiemanMarcus group. And she’s a dem, so why should she have to follow the rules like the rest of us?

Hey, nothing happened to Rangel. Why should she worry?

Now if she striped naked and posted it on YouTube then there might be a problem but only after the ethics committee investigates her electability.

How did you arrive at that diagnosis?

Perhaps she stole things because she didn't want to pay for them. Perhaps she's a common thief.

A friend of my parents had the same problem and her husband worked the same deal with local shopkeepers. Again, it was in the 50’s, not so sure how it’d work today. This woman’s husband is a judge in the area, should be interesting to see how it’s handled.

From when I was in the Navy, one of the most popular Protestant Chaplains on base, an LCDR and a weekly contributor to the base newspaper, was arrested for shoplifting.

In fact, he was due in the Base theater to give the Opening Prayer at some kind of award ceremony that afternoon, when suddenly he got the urge to steal a pair of shoes...

Weird...

I’ve actually done that - paid for three bags of children’s clothes, and wheeled out the cart with four unpaid-for dresses hanging from the cart handle. I saw them when I was getting my daughter out of the cart seat, and whoops, 180 back into the store.

Putting stuff in a shopping bag while you’re still shopping though, that’s gonna get loss-protection services trailing you.

All you anti-immigrant, racist* bashers just don't realize how hard it is to make ends meet on such pittances as Dedicated Public Servants are forced to live on.

It isn't like the old days, when they could depend upon unlimited graft to make up the shortfall. /sarc

Maybe her defense lawyer can make a case that it wasn't theft, but she was just collecting undocumented donations.

*racist: Democrat is now officially a race, just as "Muslim" is now a race

She’s Asian-American. Most of them still have very high regard for reputation, “face,” and propriety. If SHE doesn’t care, I’d bet her family does.

Who knew shoplifting was such a rush! lol So here’s my pathetic “shop lifting” story: Do you remember those long flat pieces of taffy sold in dime stores when we were kids? They were a nickle - I bought one and got to the car and realized I had two stuck together. I was about 6 years old and started crying thinking I was going to be in trouble for stealing! My Mother told me to just take the extra one back inside and tell them what happened. It was so traumatic. I never stole anything in my entire life.

She earns over $120,000 a year. What in her right mind possessed her to shoplift?

They bumped it up to $950 I believe this year. Too many felonies, and since most large jurisdictions are not prosecuting misdemeanors now, keep it under a grand and you get away with it every time.

Mom was smart! Lessons learned early last a lifetime.

IIRC it was Bonomo’s Turkish Taffy ... I pulled out a filling with one (strawberry) and never had another. Those things were brutal!
