His Excellency Nelson Lewis

This story keeps getting more bizarre.  We told you earlier the strange story about Nelson Lewis, the Rolling Stone features writer,  former Fox News booker and former Laura Ingraham Show producer who was recently arrested for allegedly impersonating Congressman Jack Kingston (R-GA).  Pretty weird. 

If that’s not enough, we’ve since discovered that no one at Rolling Stone has ever heard of Lewis and rather than working with Ingraham for the ten months he claims, he was actually terminated after only 15 weeks.  Weirder.

But this last little nugget takes the cake.  A reader directed us to this gem of a video where Kate Michael‘s “District Dish” interviews His Excellency Nelson Lewis, Minister Plenipotentiary for Artistic Endeavors at the Embassy of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas.  In the video he explains how he took the diplomatic role to get out of thousands of dollars in DC parking tickets, his wild life as a writer for Rolling Stone and how FNC’s Greta Van Susteren jokes that her viewers of “On the Record” are likely in wheelchairs or a nursing home (note: we don’t believe this either).  Wow. 

My B.S. meter just exploded so watch the video below for yourself.
