I was convicted of killing my pregnant wife. Did I do it? Well, maybe I just don’t remember. I say no. I don’t know how they were able to convict me. Maybe if I had cried a little more, and stayed off the phone with my girlfriend. Funny, she helped them convict me. You just never know someone. I’m just a nice guy who likes to go fishing on Christmas Eve.
I’m a young mother, or at least I was. Someone murdered my baby girl. They said it was me. I denied it. I loved my little girl, though I can’t really explain why I continued to party and hang with my friends the week she disappeared. Guess I should have stayed away from the camera. People didn’t understand. I just needed to unwind. Have fun. I was so stressed about my baby’s disappearance. Yeah, I lied a lot, but that doesn’t make me a murderer.
I built a multi million dollar theme park for Christians. After all, don’t we deserve to have our own? Yes, my wife and I lived lavishly, but, we could afford it. Our supporters were very generous. I guess I didn’t keep as close an eye on finances as I should. It seems we sold a few time shares we didn’t have. The stress was great. Meeting that secretary in the hotel room, well, I just needed to relax. Guess I was wrong.
Hey, we aren’t all bad! I was a cook when a famous talk show host hired me as hers. She loved my cooking! She invited me on her show to demonstrate what I could do in her home. Before I knew it, I had my own show! Good things do sometimes happen to nice people.
I was born into a rich family. A well known one at that. We dabbled in politics and I guess that became our mantra. Our name is so well known, that I have heard the media refer to us as U.S. royalty. Sad though, I’ve lost so many family members. I’m actually the only one left of my immediate family. I try to stay away from politics. I like my privacy.
I was just a young unknown when I decided to run for a senate seat. Hey, everybody has to start somewhere. Before that I was a community organizer. Crazy, huh? Well, I liked politics so much, one day I decided, I’m just going to run for president! They said I couldn’t win. They were wrong. You know,I have a “gift.”
