A New York Post reporter had just ended an interview via phone with a long-time spokesperson for the state court systems. This NYC court worker accidentally butt-dialed the reporter back, which would have been fine if he wasn’t bragging to at least two other people how he just told the reporter something different than the truth.

This butt-dialed call ended up on the reporter’s voice mail and it was like the flood gates opened up for truthful information to spew forth as David Bookstaver bragged to the friends he was with. He shared how he barely shows up for his $166,000 a year job. A job which is state funded on tax-payer dollars.

Bookstaver had just finished up an interview with the reporter on his cell phone about “a planned expose on his cushy schedule” when he unwittingly called him back with a butt-dialed cell phone call, according to Fox News.

The four-minute phone call went to the reporter’s voicemail so not only did the reporter get to hear Bookstaver’s own words, but he had a recording of those bragging words as well. It sounded as if the conversation Bookstaver was having was with two other people.

According to Fox, ” Bookstaver admitted to lying to The Post about how he spent his weekdays and confirmed the accounts of court-system sources who said he’s been working as few as two days a week.”
