I'm not sure if former state senator Hugh Webster is insane or just bat shit crazy, but whatever it is, it is our fault.
YANCEYVILLE - Hugh Webster was in a fighting mood Monday just before jury selection began in his trial in Caswell County Superior Court on embezzlement and exploiting the trust of an elderly person charges.
"I've got a hell of a lot of money in this dog-and-pony show," he said on his way to the courthouse. "They call me a defendant. I'm a victim."
Webster said the trial will show that the SBI and his aunt have "grossly misrepresented the facts."
He thinks that "leftists, liberals - the people who would try to rob us of our money and freedoms" are behind the charges.
Hey, Hugh. I'm sorry for whatever it is I did. You know, I have to admit I admire that whole personal responsibility thing you have going on there, Hugh. Good on ya.
