1) If at first you don’t succeed, try again?

or

2) Practice makes perfect?

Good for him. He saved the taxpayers and the prison system a lot of money and probably kept dozens of people from getting their names splashed all over the newspaper.

Maybe someone among those dozens of people arranged to expedite his exit from his “troubles”.

I’m sure there is a better one, but how about the one that speaks of ill gotten gains and greed?

It’s something like “everyone who is greedy for unjust gain; it takes away the life of its possessors.”

But that doesn’t even touch on the horrible abuse suffered by so many at his hand.

“Wages of sin = death” maybe?
I imagine it was “assisted”, a billionaire molester in prison would be unlikely to survive long, and a billionaire molester who could name other high profile molesters…

Don’t mess with the dragon.

He had info on too many very powerful people.

Smart move. I bet his assets moved to another person/entity upon his death so his victims will not receive any restitution.

On NPR, they said 2000 documents were released yesterday, possibly implicating politicians and other high profile people.

They also said the civil suit will proceed.

I think “Karma comes back around” may be a good one here.

He got off easier than karma. Unless, some prison mate made him his boyfriend.

jca2's avatar

He was probably in protective custody, so boyfriend not likely, yet, @JLeslie.

JLeslie's avatar

@jca2 You’re probably right. I honestly haven’t followed the story at all. Horrible man. He got off easy.

According to the flight logs, Bill Clinton knew him well enough to borrow his private jet several times.
