Not Robin Hood, but robbing hood Anderson?

Jailed and held without bond in the nation's largest alleged personal tax-evasion scheme, telecom investor Walter Anderson says the federal government has got it all wrong.
He isn't a tax cheat, he said Wednesday night in a conference room at the D.C. jail. Sending millions of dollars to offshore havens -- which the government alleges he did to evade around $200 million in taxes -- was part of a legitimate and long-standing plan.

He was going to use the money to change the world. To fight for arms control and human rights. To promote family planning and space exploration. He was going to give the money away, starting next year.

A ****-eyed optimist to think the world can be changed with 200 million. Must be going for an insanity defense.

Methinks he is not a Robin Hood, but a robbing hood.
