However, that doesn't mean he can't make headlines or get in the news. Here, this guy who appears to be another Terry McAuliffe appears to have found a bracelet and tried to sell it for a lump sum of money.
And guess who he tried to sell it back to? The original owners!
Of course, there's been backlash:
Maybe he thought the Lord said "finders keepers, losers weepers."Get a load at the Reverend's statement:
An Australian Anglican priest who found a $6,500 bracelet and tried to sell it back to the owners has been humbled -- and perhaps will be defrocked.
After media outcry and shaming from his archbishop boss, the Rev. Terry McAuliffe returned the diamond bracelet to Perth restauranteurs Clyde and Lesley Bevan Wednesday afternoon, Clyde Bevan told The Huffington Post.
The priest didn't seem embarrassed during the exchange at the clergyman's house, Bevan said.
But perhaps he should be: After reporting the lost bracelet to police, McAuliffe claimed it as his own and tracked down the owners through the bracelet's security code. He then offered to return the jewelry to them for 50 percent of the value while the Bevans recover the loss by filing an insurance claim, the Australian Associated Press reported.
The reverend, a former lawyer, told outlets that his discovery was a "gift fallen from the sky."But McAuliffe's action's have been criticized by others:
"I'm just offering to share the windfall," he said.
The Anglican Archbishop of Perth, Roger Herft, told the AAP that McAuliffe's actions were "reprehensible" and that while the priest may have followed the law by asserting ownership after a few months, people expect more from religious leaders. The archbishop also said discipline could include McAuliffe's removal from his post at St. Paul's Anglican Church.
I really cannot believe I'm posting this diary. Just as I was doing some research on the REAL Terry McAuliffe of the Democratic Party, this bizarre article shows up.
I needed a good laugh today.
