What’s one last indignity after already ruining your political career?

The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that former Missouri State Rep. T.D. El-Amin, who pleaded guilty to bribery charges last year, has bounced a $100 check that was supposed to cover court costs.

A Jan. 20 letter from the U.S. District Courthouse noted that there were “insufficient funds” to cover the cost and that “it is imperative that this check is covered immediately,” according to the paper.

He was sentenced to 18 months in prison and ordered to pay $2,100 in restitution to cover the bribes he took.
