Washing away the W:. Bag of Douchery

June 9, 2010

A heaping, hot dish of Masonic mediocrity at its finest justice has been served in the strange case of the criminal cat in the cowboy hat.

Per past Grand Master Dale I. Goehrig’s final ruling on thrice convicted felon James Anderson “Jimmy” Foster’s fraudulent foray into Freemasonry:

A five year definite suspension with re-entry devoid of re-petitioning and re-balloting contingent upon A) the entire sentence served and B) restoration of full civil rights.

Though not a richly deserved expulsion, the suspension terms are complementary whereas pending divine intervention and legislation, the felon’s Masonic membership and affiliations are ghost/toast/history.

Foster’s convictions for aggravated battery and aggravated assault, counts 12 and 18 on the violent crimes list and both of which he was convicted on February 3, 1983,  preclude restoration of civil rights.


  • No violent offenses (see Level I list; refer to the above link to view Levels I and II, Rule 9- Rules of Executive Clemency)
  • Not declared a habitual violent felony offender, a 3-time violent felony offender, violent career criminal, prison releasee reoffender, sexual predator

So mote it be.

A finality haiku:

Suspension is good.

Expulsion would be better.

Take what we can get.
