One of the Brains of Postal Privatization Charged with Theft

March 31, 2009

Youichi Takahashi, one of the brains of Koizumi’s postal privatization, was brought up on theft charges today. Apparently his political acumen did not translate into an ability to commit crime.

The security tape revealed a man, looking just like Youichi, opening up a fellow bather’s locker. He took both an expensive Italian 100,000 yen watch and a wallet with 50,000 yen in it.

When confronted by the authorities, he confessed, stating “I’m sorry. I saw the watch and was interested, like what kinda person would carry such a nice watch?”
