ASA FIRED FOR FLASHING

UPDATED: We now have information from several sources confirming that an assistant state attorney was fired for flashing his badge in a dispute in a strip bar. What was the dispute over? The tab. What was the tab for? We're not sure. It might have been for liquor, or it might have been for "other services rendered." 

BREAKING

There are places of repute, ill and otherwise, where young people, mostly men, congregate to meet other people who are young and in various stages of undress -almost always women. These places,  where the Supreme Court has ruled that flashing- the act of showing various parts of the human body in states of dress and undress- is protected speech- are commonly called "strip clubs". Or so we've heard. 

And it is perfectly acceptable, indeed, it is expected that flashing occurs at a strip club. In fact, money is paid to induce nubile young women to more reverently express their artistic concepts. 

But not all flashing is the same. 

One can flash one's natural assets to the approval of groups of admirers. 
But one cannot flash a badge
And so it has come to pass that a young assistant state attorney, who frequented an aforementioned establishment,  ( one would expect in an attempt to satisfy some prurient interest, see, e.g, Miller v. California, 413 U.S. 15 (1973) ) has been fired by the Dade County State Attorneys Office. 
For flashing. 

For not all flashing is alike. Between badges and breasts, one will get you money, and one might cost you a career. 

Rumpole practice tip for prosecutors: Stay out of strip clubs. 

See You In ......Court, and no where else.

You've got to be a fucking moron to show your badge to get into a strip club. I mean, the pay is terrible at the SAO, but if you can't afford the cover charge, what is the point in going???

Who, what, where, when ... we already know why.

I'm not going to publish the name for sometime for a myraid of reasons. But ask around at the courthouse. You'll find out easy enough. Secrets in the regjb are kept as secure as a strippers breasts at Tootsies.

Went to a club for my little Bro's batcholor party with a Secret Service Agent friend of his.

Later w/ a naked lady on his lap, he flashes his badge and heard him tell her that he knows alot of conterfiet money gets passed in clubs and she should call him if tipped w/ counterfiet bills.

I used my badge to get laid at Biscayne Baby and the 1800 Club. Call me a loser, but it worked faster than a Quaalude with a beer chaser.

What's the problem??? TV prone former US Attorney flashed the governmental AMEX at a club a few years back and he gets CNN calls daily . . . . . .

This is bs. Please do some investigation before posting such nonsense. I bet he didnt even "flash" it at all, but rather it accidentally fell out of his pocket as he was walking through the threshold of the establishment. My badge has a mind of its own whenever I get pulled over for speeding, when i purchase guns and ammo, and when im running late at the airport. Such clumsy things, those damn badges.

Rumpole,

By golly, why are you tormenting this nice ASA ? Their badge simply fell out their pocket and now you have this big conspiracy on the blog. How do you even know the story is true?

Years ago, ASA (in another State), badged some scalpers outside stadium at World Series. He took their tickets and along with his companion, enjoyed the game. When the boss heard about it (some other ASAs dimed him out), the ASA was advised to start looking for other work, and was gone shortly thereafter.

...and once upon a time an ASA who transferred from another state went to a bar. He spied two pretty FDLE agents [undercover], and tried to get them to his place with a promise of cocaine.

They went, whereupon that he admitted that it was a ploy. On the way there, he told them that he was an ASA, and not worried about getting busted.

Well before usual working hours Ms. Reno did everything except personally kick him down the escalators. If she could have found a crime - he would have been busted. This was followed by notifying the Bar.

There were some interesting days then...

LOL. I love that there's a fake BTDT.

Seriously though, the ASA deserved to be fired. There's simply no excuse for abusing the badge. And, I don't doubt that he or she did it. The SAO, like every other agency, doesn't impose significant discipline lightly.

ASAs who don't appreciate the importance of their jobs need to go.

Wait, the ASA flashed a badge or a vag?

During my time as an ASA, that badge was only good for getting me out of tickets AND getting me a 1/2 price discount at Chipotle.

I did flash it once to some punka$$ University of Miami cop who didn't let me watch a baseball game from the parking garage next to the baseball field. He was like "you know better, don't flash me."

I recall once being ordered by a judge to go to a strip club.

Had to do with a witness issue, and for whatever reason we didn't have a good home address, and the witness didn't have a valid telephone.

I recall the judge telling me this, "This is not a 9 to 5 job you know. Therefore, I am ordering you to make a night visit to said strip club to track down this witness, so that you can report whether you can be ready for trial on this case."

I was just shaking my head thinking, "Meh, I so hate strip clubs." The laughter in the courtroom though seemed to indicate that everyone was just thinking that this was just simply a hoot.

$40,000 a year for an ASA. I bet they're getting the best and the brightest from Nova over there. LOL.
