Allen The Family

What an odd story: A former Bush Administration advisor making high six-figures in charged with attempting to scam Target Department Stores out of thousands of dollars in fake returns. How could such a "goody-two-shoes" like Claude Allen go so wrong?

Well, well, well. Late last evening, Talking Points Memo's Josh Marshall dug up some interesting high school photos of Claude Allen and his ne'er-do-well twin brother Floyd.


They say that even their close friends often can't tell them apart.


Interestingly, Claude has not come right out and said, "No no no! It was my evil twin!". Then again, Claude has bailed out Floyd before in troubled times.

Floyd was the twin who "kept running into bad times," while Claude Allen intervened repeatedly to help him, [Mrs. Allen] said.

Oddly, the stranger it gets, the more sense it makes. You just can't make this stuff up.

Or, can you......?
