Happy 4th of July and Also a Lesson in How Not to Be
On this, the best holiday of the summer, let us all try not to be angry and bitter like this guy who got mad at KPMG for flexing Omaha Steaks on Facebook many years ago: Speaking of steaks, did they ever come back after The Great Unsteakoning of 2020? Stay safe out there everyone and […]
Former PwC Partner Suing Firm After Getting Fired for Groping a Co-worker Who He Can’t Remember Groping But Knows He Didn’t Grope

Local Man Sentenced For Accountant Hate Crime
Accountants are a favorite target for blamestorming when your financial situation takes a turn for the worse. Given. However, when a financial ignoramus’s blame manifests itself into physical abuse – especially by faux-celebs – toward his/her accountant (who could also possibly be an ignoramus) that is when an accountant hate crime has occurred, which any functioning society will not tolerate:
Joe Bruner will serve 11 months and 29 days in the county jail for attacking his accountant.
He will also be required to take anger management classes, submit to drug and alcohol evaluation, give up any weapons he has and avoid contact with Wayne Montgomery, the victim.
Circuit Court Judge John Brown imposed the sentence Monday after Bruner, the former owner of Big Kahuna’s water park, spoke at length about his IRS problems, Montgomery’s qualifications as a CPA and a State Attorney’s Office plot against him.
“Mr. Bruner seems to be blaming everyone else for his actions,” prosecutor LaShawn Riggins noted. “He has an excuse for everything.”
Bruner, 57, a former professional football player, was convicted Aug. 20 of felony battery for punching Montgomery several times at a July 21, 2009 business meeting at Bruner’s house.
The conviction was a felony because Bruner had a history of assaulting people. Brown rattled off five other occasions between 2001 and 2010 in which Bruner had faced charges for violence-related incidents.
