"Gotta be careful what goes on line pookies... The ex would love to fry me with that."

Written on a blog by a woman who subsequently lost the monthly $850 she'd been receiving after she testified that she was too disabled to work. The woman, Dorothy McGurk, had been blogging about belly dancing:
"My belly dancing is the reason why I adore myself so much."
The ex, it should be noted, is a mailman.

Secrets can be tough to keep, getting away with something is so much cooler if people know you did it. But how hard can it be to realize this one should be just between you and your dog.?

Pogo said...

"McGurk ...testified she is a trained Reikki spiritual healer and can "channel God's light to facilitate healing"

It is quite shocking to discover the liar and layabout is also a New Age 'practitioner'.

Gabriel Hanna said...

She also claims to be a practitioner of reiki.

Reiki is fake New Age bullshit which can't even claim to be based in tradition; it was invented in the West a few years ago and given a fake Oriental name.

We're lucky she WASN'T working; fake mdeical treatments kill people, as Crack MC will tell you. Sitting on her ass claiming disability is better than the alternative.

They really want to be caught.

Notice too her self-shot portrait taken at the infamous fat-chick angle.

Crack Emcee New Age Alert!

The totally skewered husband seems to have finally gotten a fair shake.

The millions of other skewered husbands across the land will just have to stay that way I guess.

The wheels of justice grind oh so slow sometimes.

TWM said...

I bet she's in a Belly Dancer union.

Gabriel Hanna said...

Some of her blog posts.

Guaranteed this totally amoral witch will see herself to the very end as the innocent put upon party.

Sofa King said...

McGurk was also told to move out of the couple's house, and her ex-husband was awarded 60% of its value because she "worked only two years of this 11-year marriage," the judge wrote in her decision.

2/11 = 18%. She got 40%. ?????

Leland said...

Sitting on her ass claiming disability is better than the alternative.

Yeah, but her husband didn't need to pay alimony because she claimed to be disabled. Good for him.

MadisonMan said...

This cries out for a Crack Comment! Emcee, please check in.

IMO, sometimes Justice wins.

Timothy said...

The court awarded that settlement 3 years ago, and the husband claims she has been dancing everyday for the past three years.

I hope he gets some sort of restitution ($850 a month for almost three years... so over $10,000). I doubt Ms. McGurk's bellydancing and spiritual healing will be able to cover that though.

Outstanding. I love it when cheaters and liars get a just desserts.

Sixty Grit said...

Hey, she channels squirrels. SQUIRRELS!!! Seriously, Crack, why do you pick on these people? ;^)

bagoh20 said...

Justice would be paying back all she got through her lies, as well as all the costs incurred by her husband, plus something for his pain and suffering for 3 years plus some punitive price.

Crime and lying really does pay in our system. Even when we try to make things right, we still pay the culprit something, and if she is a woman it's guaranteed. Why not lie? We encourage it and guys are pigs anyway.

There is justice in this world.

Indeed! The internet makes our lives an open book, but if you're going to be an open book make sure you're not practicing easily proven fraud while doing so.

That's only the second-dumbest thing I've read today, topped by Mike Leake, the Cincinnati Reds pitcher (2011 salary, $425K) caught on camera trying to shoplift $60 worth of shirts at the Macy's in downtown Cincinnati yesterday. I read that and all I could say was, "Dude, WTF?!"

bagoh20 said...

In civil court a liar almost always gets something, even when everybody knows they are lying. I've been on civil juries and the general consensus always ends up at: We should give them something, the defendant can afford it." Everybody thinks they are freakin Robin Hood.

Oh, and here's some music for the fraudstress:

EDH said...

Something to think about:

All things being equal, if she just used semen as a "mood enhancer" instead of belly dancing, she probably would have continued to get away with her scam.

Face it, the judge probably wouldn't go there, because it's within the zone of "sexual privacy," even if she posted her "money shots" on the web.

edutcher said...

Agree with BigMike. How dumb are these people that they can't get the idea once it's on the Internet, the whole world sees it?

As to the lady's weight, hard to tell how heavy she might be from the multiple exposure in the blog post, although the face shot doesn't look like she's all that fat.

If she dances as much as she claims, she should drop that weight in no time, and a red-haired, green-eyed belly dancer would fetch good money.

PS Anybody want to tell me what a line pookie is?

The judge, who wrote "participating in Internet blogs," must be of the same generation as "The Tweeter" Breyer.

Trooper York said...

Why you have to notice that because the academic world looks down on the simple working man.

This woman is another new age fucking nut. I hope she loses more.

I'm fairly certain a comma belongs between "on line" and "pookies", not between "goes on" and "line pookies".

Here let me fix that for you:

But no one knows where they come from.

Big Mike said...

@Methadras, my point was that once you post that picture you took of yourself or the text you wrote on the Internet, you never know when the last copy of it has been deleted.

A lot of young women will learn that the hard way in fifteen or twenty years when their young son calls them over to his monitor and asks "Mom, is that you?" Yup. Drunk, naked, and performing fellatio on some guy she doesn't remember. Yup, that's her.

Thank God I had sons.

bagoh20 said...

"Thank God I had sons."

That would still be embarrassing.

Dante said...

From the article 'Serrano defended his photograph as a criticism of the "billion-dollar Christ-for-profit industry" and a "condemnation of those who abuse the teachings of Christ for their own ignoble ends".'

seems more relevant than a plastic crucifix in a glass of piss, which could mean anything, or maybe nothing at all.

The Crack Emcee said...

Sorry I'm so late to the party but it couldn't be helped. Three things:

First, she wasn't belly dancing, she was just "posing".

Second, this reminds me of how my restraining order hearing ended - after all the bogus charges were thrown out, by a female Native American judge who was livid about the attempt to manipulate the court, and my ex was finally exposed as a nut - when the court stenpgrapher turned to me and said, "I'm so sorry." It was the first time anyone had seriously acknowledged what I'd been put through, until the murders were exposed.

Third, my ex was a Reiki Master. After she left, I found her diaries and discovered she was pulling energy from between guy's legs.

Don't ask.

The Crack Emcee said...

Martin L. Shoemaker,

It's Crack Emcee's world. We all just live in it.

As much as I know that's a joke, sometimes that's what it feels like. Like there's all this stuff going on - on a "spiritual" level - and, because it's framed that way, few pay it much mind. Just as I, or this mailman, didn't - where, now, he and I are keenly aware of it but almost all alone in that awareness.

I noticed that Glenn Reynolds and Dr. Helen can't even spot obvious quackery. It boggles the mind.

The Crack Emcee said...

Oh - and in case Meade doubts it:

Reiki's a cult.
