This Guy's a Dirtbag and an Idiot

Heard about this story on the radio this morning.

Father pleads guilty in soup-tainting plot

February 7, 2007

ATLANTA, GEORGIA -- A man admitted Tuesday that he tampered with his children's soup in an attempt to get money from Campbell Soup Co., a prosecutor said.

William Allen Cunningham's 3-year-old son and 18-month-old daughter were hospitalized twice in January 2006. He forced them first to eat soup laced with hot peppers and lighter fluid, and the second time used antidepressants to poison the children, authorities said.

Cunningham, 41, pleaded guilty to communicating false claims, U.S. Atty. David Nahmias said. He faces up to 5 years in federal prison.

First off, you have to be a major dirtbag to poison your kids in order to run some scam. Secondly, lighter fluid and Prozac?? Did he think Campbells was going to just say "Gee, sorry -- don't know how lighter fluid got in our soup. But, it must be our fault so here's a check". What a moron.

What's also outrageous is that this jerk is only facing up to 5 years in prison.
