Earlier this week Atilla The Mom nominated Los Angeles resident Michael Cohn for Asshat of the Week. It seems Mr. Cohn was cheesed off at not being given a complimentary Mother's Day totebag while attending a Los Angeles Angels baseball game last year. In fact, his pain and suffering was so great that he filed a class action lawsuit requesting $4,000 in damages for himself and each of the "victims".
While I believe Mr. Cohn certainly is a petty little man and perhaps even worthy of the title Asshat, I would like to nominate a challenger for this week's award. My selection for Asshat of the Week is Ms. Bethann Hiltson.
It seems that Ms. Hiltson, age 27, found the task of getting a job to support herself too troublesome. Instead she felt it would be better to force "her developmentally disabled half-sister into prostitution by telling her she would be sent back to a group home if she didn't give men what they wanted". According to the allegations, Ms. Hilston, who is her sister's caretaker and receives her Social Security checks, would set up "dates" for her sister and keep the proceeds for herself. She is also accused of posting nude photos of her sister on the internet and attempting to coerce others in her building to assist in her scheme. She is currently being held in the Ramsey County Jail.
It sort of makes Cain and Abel's relationship look pretty healthy in comparison.
