I have a feeling that a lot of shady types are answering that question with a resounding “Yes I am” this morning.
After the Giants-Cowboys game wrapped up, I switched over to watch the news, completely forgetting about the Democratic National Convention coverage. I had no genuine interest in taking in any of it…but don’t go reading into that either way…I didn’t have much interest in taking in the RNC either. Like most, I am past frustrated with our political climate. But, following the Costanza logic (because it’s on TV), I decided to watch ol’ Billy Baroo (Clinton) on the podium.
I just happened to tune in just in time to see Edith L. Byrd, a member of the audience, defiantly shaking her Medicare card in the camera lens as Clinton waxed on the Romney/Ryan ticket’s assault on the federal health plan.
Nice work, Edith. Hope you have LifeLock.
With a simple pause of my DVR, I was able to clearly make out Edith L. Byrd’s social security number and her signature. I’m not sure how long it takes for somebody to steal one’s identity, but I’m guessing that by the time Edith made her way to the ATM outside of Time Warner Cable arena, her account was cleaned out.
“You’re Dr. Galazkiewicz?”
“Yes I am!”
