There are scandals, and there are SCANDALS. And the story of an EPA official who cheated the agency out of a million dollars with an incredibly elaborate hoax might very well be, in Jon Stewart‘s opinion, one of the most amazing and unbelievable political scandals of all time.
But despite the sexiness of this story, Stewart said, “this man is a liar and boring as f*ck!” John Beale even lied to get a handicapped parking space, which wasn’t even necessary, because “he could have gotten a handicapped parking space for a legitimate medical reason: his gigantic balls.” And on top of everything else, another EPA official testified to Congress that Beale is staying in his guest house. WOW.
John Oliver then showed up to share more tales of Beale legend: he is the descendant of Sitting Bull, he is the 1983 wimbledon champion, and his urine sorta kinda tastes like champagne.
