You remember that story of the teenager who sued her parents for support? Happily, the lawsuit was recently withdrawn, and she’s back at home. But here’s the kicker… her lawsuit was facilitated — and surely encouraged — by the father of a friend of hers.

“Canning had been living in Rockaway Township with the family of her best friend. The friend’s father, former Morris County Freeholder John Inglesino, was paying for the lawsuit.”

This father-of-a-friend deserves a bitchslap or two, particularly given that the girl has become such a public spectacle. What a mess.

    Yes! This is the part of that crazy story that I thought was the most infuriating, but least discussed. What the hell was a grown man (married, with kids) thinking when he agreed to financially back a young woman’s attempt to steal her parent’s money? Remarkably, he appears to have escaped any real criticism amidst the circus. Honestly, I wondered if the young woman wasn’t sleeping with him. Yes, I’m that jaded!
