Corrupt Bastard Doesn’t Like Being Corrupt Bastard – Sues
Just when you thought it was over… Convicted Corrupt Bastard Vic Kohring, doesn’t much like being called a corrupt bastard. So, he’s is suing fellow corrupt Bastard Bill Allen, federal informant and former CEO of oil services company VECO for defamation, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and damage to his business and personal reputations. He has also named CH2M Hill, the company that purchased VECO in the suit.
Vic Kohring, as you may recall, is the former Republican legislator from Wasilla who pleaded guilty during his October 21 retrial for accepting bribes to keep oil taxes low in Alaska. The sentencing memo said, “Kohring is now prepared to accept responsibility and move forward with his life,” the prosecution’s sentencing memo said.
And now this:
Kohring claims that as a result of Allen’s testimony, he lost his family and is “seen as a corrupt politician convicted of bribery, conspiracy and extortion.” He is requesting a judgment in excess of $100,000.
Here is the tape of Vic Kohring being “seen as a corrupt politician” in a hotel room accepting cash bribes from Bill Allen.
In the federal courthouse last month, Kohring said he had been mostly unemployed, only doing occasional part-time carpentry work. Judge Ralph Beistline sentenced Kohring to time already served (a year in prison) with an additional 18 months of supervised release, even though his attorney argued anything over 12 months supervised release would be excessive.

According to Kohring’s new court documents he “suffered the loss of his reputation, career, family, shame, mortification, and injury to his person (both financially and emotionally), and life in general as his freedom was taken away for a full year, which plaintiff can never get back for which defendants should be held liable.”
For those of you who thought the show was over, and were half way up the aisle, get ready for the encore.
