recommendedreading1It’s another bizarre one from the make-believe world of “sovereign citizens.”

From the Albany Times Union, in a story dated today: “Glenn Unger, 62, could only watch the verdict via video from a cell in the Rensselaer County jail. Unger’s antics during the four-day trial before U.S. District Court Senior Judge Thomas McAvoy convinced the judge last week to boot Unger from the courtroom, where he had been representing himself.”

    Snippet from the release:

    ______________________________________________________

    After the IRS filed a tax lien against Glenn Richard Unger, the defendant attempted to file a false document with the Saratoga County Clerk’s office attempting to release the lien. Evidence at trial also showed that Glenn Richard Unger tried to pay off a debt to another orthodontist with a fictitious document purported to be worth $200,000.
