Women gang up on crooked Casanova

Bill Sullivan of  Colorado was convicted of stealing nearly $1 million from his employer in 1999. He served two years in prison. When he was released, he’d meet women, admit that he’d been in jail, explain that he was trying to turn his life around, go to church with them and ask for their help (read: money).

Did we mention that Sullivan did this to a lot of women? Two weeks ago, the Westword News of Denver published an expansive story about the escapades of this con artist. The story involved three wives, seven named girlfriends, and a bevy of unnamed women.

A group of the named girlfriends decided to warn other women that Sullivan tried to snare. They called their efforts “Operation Cock Block.” Sullivan, of course, says they’re nothing but “scorned women.”

Read Operation Cock Block tries to protect women’s hearts and pocketbooks from this crooked Casanova on Westword.com.

WOW!!!! What can I say? And why do our laws allow such people to be “sentenced” to repay and then NOT repay? Why does the govt’ allow them to NOT pay restitution and still go free. Should he not have to “work off” his debt working for the prison breaking rocks if no other way?

Is it less THEFT because he signed checks instead of used a gun to rob the company?

If he stole this money, isn’t it “income” on which he should have paid TAXES, so shouldn’t the IRS confiscate the gold in his teeth to pay the taxes o n the ill gotten gains? They got Al Capone on tax evasion on his crooked income!!!

The “criminal women” who have “harassed” this poor INNOCENT CITIZEN are, instead, threatened for trying to regain what he has stolen from them, embezzled from them!

LIFE AIN’T FAIR, I know that, but this isn’t even close to just or fair in a country where law is supposed to be honored!

The whole thing raises my blood pressure and makes me grind my teeth!

Breaking rocks? HA! From what I have heard about prisons, that would be considered cruel and inhumane treatment. In fact, my understanding is that short of rubbing their temples, feeding them grapes, and singing lullaby’s to the prisoners, they pretty well pamper them. If our prison and legal system were tougher, we wouldn’t have the overcrowded prison problem and high return rate. But I could go on and on about how that alone angers me. I like how he calls them “scorned women”. I guess they wouldn’t be scorned if he and others like him just stayed out of their lives. I think sociopaths get us all caught up in their world, to the point of losing ourselves and anything going on in our world…then…when they suddenly dump us and disappear, we are left in a haze. When we try to either try to contact the abuser or retaliate against his/her wrongdoings, THEN, we become the scorned, obsessive, crazy ones. YIKES. I think they should put all the sociopaths in a locked room full of computers with no keyboards….then lets see who acts obsessed.

Dear Heartsick,

Nah, prison isn’t that cushy, at least not the state prisons, but it can be brutal beyond belief, especially for young small white guys–and in some states especially in the south they still use the prisoners to hand plant and raise cotton, vegetables and other food stuffs or to work in heavy manual labor. My son did spend some time on the end of a hoe in the glaring sun! He has learned however over his nearly 20 years in prison how to manipulate the system to live a bit better than that especially if he has someone on the outside sending money so he can “live well” inside, work in the craft shop etc. buy a Fan, radio, extra and better food etc.

I did manage to cut him off from any money at all for about a year until my egg donor started sending him money again. So I know he had a miserable year without a dime to spend to even buy an asprin, or a tea bag. Of course by now my son has learned to “hustle” and make money inside prison by helping smuggle in contraband, by making and using tattoo guns, etc. I’m sure he has more than one way to make money inside and has had time to build up friendships to help him.

Of course he is a great BS artist so will use that I am sure too.

Oh, well, it will all be different for them when I am warden! LOL

Ladies of the ‘COCK BLOCK’.
I LOVE what you did! I love the female comraderie. I love this article. I love what a dufus idiot he is….and I’d Love to join your club. (although I don’t know this casanova).

I think if we women UNITE….we could be a powerhouse to protect ourselves against this sort of dickwad!
It’s the women like the last gf…..who ruin it for ALL WOMEN.
Those who wish to support and offer cover.

More power to ya gals…..you go…..and don’t stop until YOUR satisfied!
Looks like he farked with the wrong women!
I love it!!!

I wrote the author of the article, Melanie Asmar, told her we were pretty impressed with the ladies of the cock block, and told her to let them know about us.

How about operation crock pot? An onion, some garlic, acouple of carrots, and a stock of celery….a bay leaf a little fresh thyme….make that over extended member really stew.

kim frederick

I will have to hit the request deletion button in the morning. Sigh.

one/joy_step_at_a_time

kim – hehe!

how about:
10 heads of garlic, one cross and a silver bullet;
light afire and burn until hell freezes over.

kim frederick

Yup! I don’t even entertain the thought of being in a relationship anymore. Read the posts today by all the gals talking about the perverts they’ve met on-lin and the gone’s they’ve dated casually. Read the stuff about the pornography, the degradation, childhood abuse….God. I’m done! I’m done. I DON’T WANT ONE ANTMORE.

I don’t. I’m soooo damn over it I can’t even tell you.
ARGHHHH.

hens

Kimmer’s I am right beside ya – been there done that – next subject?

Ox Drover

Oh, you guys are tooooo [email protected]

Yea, Kim, I’m with you! I’ve come to the consclusion the only people who will get involved in a ‘relationship” are those who are young enough or naive enough to not know the “score”! LOL Actually, not really, but it seems that way anyway! I don’t know an actual living man that I would have, even if he was served up baked, on a platter, with an apple in his mouth!

Actually, the thought of spending the rest of my life single was terrifying, but now that I’ve had time to heal some and to get over the trauma of losing my husband and the P-x-bf, you know, I’m actually pretty happy like I am, and I NO LONGER HAVE TO SHAVE MY LEGS IF I DON’T FEEL LIKE IT!!!! Let that stuff grow! No more nicks and no more cuts! No more little pieces of toilet paper stuck to my shins cause I’m bleeding!

I’ve got lots of great memories to remember and think about and I don’t have to do anyone’s laundry, sweep up the dirt they track in or put the toilet seat down! The toilet paper roll is always there and spins the way I like it. There’s never any hair in the bottom of the sink from someone shaving there, and I get to pick the side of the bed I like the best! I get all the closet and don’t have to share! AND I GET COMPLETE CONTROL OF THE REMOTE!!!

Hey, life is GRAND!!!!!

ErinBrock

Ya know…I get more personal pleasure these days out of helping others with sociopaths. It’s my way of ‘getting even’ with the cluster b world!
Maybe getting even isn’t the word….because with the spath, (materialistically)i got way more than ‘even’ and that hurt him the most.
But whatever you call it….every day I find a way to speak of sociopathic behaviors to someone in my world. Whether it’s the census worker, the bill collector, the judges, the news person, a family member, a teenager, a plumber, a Dr, a waitress…..whomever……I will NOT keep quiet now!
And this is rewarding to me. Whether or not they ‘hear’ what I say…..today….or one day….they may be enlightened. I encourage everyone to….’in your spare moment, google sociopath’ and I betcha you will recognize someone IN YOUR LIFE who exhibets these behaviors and it will then make sense to you…..all the odd behaviors.

This is my new way of ‘dating’ for now…..it’s what I’m passionate about and I want the world to know…..and I’m always thinking of ways to get it out.
I get ‘giddy’ inside when I see someone get it…….it’s another potential shut down for a sociopath. another person they don’t have the potential of hurting…..
I wish I had a ‘crew’ of people to work with, build a powerhouse to shut these assholes down…..enlighten others with.
But for now….I do it this way.

This will lead somewhere for me, I am confident…….this will morph into a bigger way of helping myself as I help others…..a win/win situation….and this will ultimately be my place.
I would like nothing else than to further expose the spath by making a living off my experience of abuse…..at his expense.
telling my story, offering my experience up to aid others finding their way.
This is my new ‘boyfriend’……..and I am happy with it for now!!!

Dear ErinB, actually that’s a great way of looking at it!

GettingIt

Erin, Thank you for motivational post. I too find myself loud and convincing, teaching and preaching. I just had a thought. They are human after all. The reason “we” did not see what IT was is because we are used to measuring people by our internal standards, we live by “do onto others as you would want to be done on to you”. Now, Ps do the same exact thing: they measure people by THEIR internal standards, and boy are they low… About this lovely article – I found out that in the last 20 years my ex was married to three women and faithful to none. Guess, how many filed bankruptcy? Haha, all three. He even once proposed this to me, and I could not believe the words he spoke. He wanted me to cash in the college funds, saying that my kids won’t go to college anyway. I mean, the guts of these bastards are truly amazing. Way to go, Erin B, and thank you for your great support on another line here.

Gettingit: you said ‘They are human after all. The reason “we” did not see what IT was is because we are used to measuring people by our internal standards, we live by “do onto others as you would want to be done on to you”. Now, Ps do the same exact thing: they measure people by THEIR internal standards, and boy are they low’

yahoo! this is great. perfect!

ErinBrock

Gettingit:
Yep….you nailed it!!!
This is our ‘pitfall’ and thier uprise.

I thank you for your insightful response! Well said.

At the end…..I was really boggled by how the spath would tell me…..YOU think like this or you feel like that……and he was SO CONVINCED OF IT…..and i stood there thinking….are you serious….we were POLAR opposite of each other….he had NO IDEA nor close to how I felt about whatever….but he thought he did.
I would stand back and think….is he joking? Is this for real….no one can tell me how/what I think….and I DON”T think/feel taht way….
I quickly realized ans stated to him…..YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHO I AM. You’ve been with me for 28 years and YOU HAVE NO IDEA ANYTHING ABOUT ME. and I really meant and felt those words…..
shortly after that……I figured out why.
It was HOW HE FELT/THOUGHT!

Just what you said……

I still live by the ‘golden rule’….I’ve just tweeked it a bit at times….when needed, I add a bit of silver to the rule.
For good peeps and some strangers…. I do unto others as I’d have done unto me.

FOr spaths:
I do unto spaths as they have done unto me ! TEN FOLD!

ONE: well said darlen!!!!

EB – your 12:03 post is quite moving. it truly is a love letter.

HI One Ya there? How are ya?

libelle

Good morning silver- nice to see you. I hope that you could get rid of or dance away some of your burden last night! May you have a better day than yesterday (((Hugs)))

PS I am reading right now Barbara Ehrenreich’s “Smile or die” on the hazards of positive thinking- an eye opener for me not to talk down reality and get a blurred vision through rose colored glasses (but I guess ours have been ripped away already?)

silvermoon

LOL! Got that right! Have a great day!~
Reality isn’t so bad.

one/joy_step_at_a_time

hey silver – i want to read that book libelle mentioned; sounds really interesting. there hasn’t been anything critiquing that whole movement, no way to really engage and think through the efficacy of the idea.

lazy morning. about to go to the job centre to work on this appl. i need to get out of the house (face going numb, don’t cha just love chemicals!) and i need the inspiration of the boy who works there. he has been a big help. it’s sometimes hard – because my business writing is sophisticated people think i don’t need some editorial help and some encouragement – but i need both. when i rewrote my writing c.v. a couple of weeks ago i really thought about my character as a writer and what i have to offer – and one thing is collaborative writing; i really love to work with others. i love the bounding back and forth of ideas and the making of a thing that i myself could not make alone, and the other, could not make alone. writing relationships are like lover relationships – we produce a third thing. this is one of the reasons i miss the fake boy – and actually what i was largely referring to last night in my post. sooooo, i have started putting it out there into the universe: i want to write with others. you see how fast i am when we partay here – i can keep a number of threads going at the same time. i had that with the spath – who, regardless of the horribleness of her being is really freakin quick and funny – well, the boy character was. she is not so funny. i also had this sort or writing relationship with the N ex. now, this is a bit scarey….2 of these, both s/p/n. BUT there will be other writers.

i might have become a working visual artist if i could have worked with others…but back then i didn’t really ‘get’ that i could work with others. i remember this fellow i knew, we both sat on the board of an artist’s run center – he had his own dance company – was in his 40’s. i was in my early 30’s and was just finishing art school. i currated a massive show and created a ton of public programming. was a very controversial show and it brought big healing tot he queer community. after it was over he told me he always pictured me as a director. i love that energy. i want to make films; videos; i want to collaborate; i wan to write; i want have another piece of paper that will get me thorugh the next 20 years of work; i want to clown again; i want o work with adults with intellectual disabilities again.

so, that’s how i am.

able to speak again.

able to dream again.

🙂

Hi, One step. I used to write prose poetry, and then recite it on open mike night all over the city I live in.

I haven’t written in ions, though….it interferred with my addictions. LOL

This AM, I was listening to, and watching some old Jackson Browne videos that I loved in my youth, and felt inspired for the first time in years. I want to write something to/for/about Jackson Browne….I always felt he was a kindred spirit.

If you want to colaborate on something, I’d love to give it a try.

Here’s a great Jewel song for ya.

Stray thought One and Kim…
It takes three strand to weave a braid and I think that the story of our expeienced weave the fabric of emotions that define the spath experience.

Lets write a poem and publish it as a way of celebrating that we have thus far, not only survived but begun to emerge from the experience wiser, stronger and more real than anyone who hasn’t learned what we, now know….

Just a stray thought…..

Harold

I have to wonder if the recent ex girlfriend and the friend who defended him feel the same way after reading the article?
