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.

    People, there’s precedent for this.

    Marion Barry (Mayor for Life), “The bitch set me up!”

    He may not be the mayor of Washington, DC right now, but he’s still on the city council. I suspect if he ran again, he just might win again. If only to p*ss off Congress.

  2. Polarbear says:

    This has to be a lawsuit of opportunity driven by Kohring’s attorney. Kohring is not smart enough to mount a lawsuit like this on his own.

  3. tallimat says:

    Well Vic’s character goes for pretty cheap. Even “get her done” Knot knew this.

  4. Bear Woman says:

    Looks like Vic filed pro se — he couldn’t even get a lawyer to file for him.

    Quick, somebody in the valley get a copy of the complaint and see what ridiculous theories ol’ Vic is filing under and if anyone but himself is willing to attach their name to his tripe.

    • UgaVic says:

      I wondered if he was able to find a lawyer and whom that might be, question at least partly answered!

  5. Nan (aka roswellborn) says:


    He defamed his own character, the idiot.

  6. AKjah says:

    What is it with the water up there in the valley. I cannot wrap my head around this. Just….wow.
    Is Joe Miller his lawyer? That would explain allot.

  7. AKblue says:

    As usual, the stunning artistry captures the moment.

  8. Writing from Alaska says:

    Somehow I think this may show up in “News of the Weird”, just a feeling…..

  9. Ndjinn says:

    Hey, Vic: I am pretty sure that’s not how the legal system works. Good luck and can I have your lawyer when it’s over?

  10. mike from iowa says:

    I hate to equate this guy with honest,hard working ladies of the night,but let’s face reality,the whole of Alaska knows what this guy is. Like the ladies of the night this guy can be bought,you just have to dicker over the price.

    I can’t wait for the book!

    I want to know who is the silly attorney who is representing him on this. Must be on a contingency because Vic has no money. Vic is going to have even less money when he has to pay CH2M Hills legal bills. I don’t think a jury in Palmer is going to be sympathetic to the claim that they ruined his reputation by forcing him to take a bribe.

    But even if he somehow wins this lawsuit, we know what his reputation was worth because we know he sold it for a few hundred dollars. So that is a good measure of what the jury should award him if he is somehow successful.

  13. leenie17 says:

    No one forced him to break the law. He made the choice and now he has to live with the consequences.

    It’s the same lesson we teach the kids in school. Pretty sad when my kindergarteners learn it more quickly than this idiot!

  14. nitejazz says:

    Maybe Mr. Kohring needs to take singing lessons, “Cry Me a River” would be a good start. He took an oath then violated it for personal gain. To my mind he should own up, realize he is a criminal and live with it. Bill Allen did not take away his honor, good name, family or livelihood, it was done all by himself.

    Tough rocks dude, you brought it on yourself.

  15. Dia says:

    Vic Kohring:

    Take your shameful, grifting begger-man ways away from here, far, far away, like to Sarah Palin’s non-campaign – I’m sure you will be quite an asset to her.

  16. Translation, “It’s all HIS fault! If he hadn’t turned informant because of his own illegal stuff then my illegal actions would’ve never been caught! Waaaaah, I’M the real victim! Now somebody gimme the money that I’m entitled to when I took those bribes dammit!”

  17. Zyxomma says:


    And that’s all I have to say on the subject.

  18. slipstream says:

    Hey Vic, we all watched the FBI videotape of you taking cash from Bill Allen.

    Who are we gonna believe — you or our own lying eyes?

  19. hedgewytch says:

    Vic, you really are dumb as a rock aren’t you? Not only that, but you are a spoiled little kid too. Man up. You are damn lucky your ass isn’t still sitting in jail. Take responsibility for your actions and go dig a ditch somewhere, flip some burgers, and live like the Republican you profess to be. Schmuck.

    • juneaudream says:

      I like the have..captured him… ‘ spoiled.’ No matter what good qualitys he may possess..and I am certain there are some..I am guessing that his personal balls..are the size of cheap marbles.

  20. Mag the Mick says:

    Isn’t there some kind of legal indemnity in place for witnesses and/or informants? Even Bill Allen, despicable criminal he is, deserves protection under the law.

    I am not at all surprised that Vic has adopted the universal Republican victim stance. Always somebody else’s fault, eh Victor?

  21. AKPetMom says:

    Surely if being a “broken man” was punishment enough, then Vic would have certainly paid his dues to society. He does not seem like a bad man at heart, he just made a mistake; I personally don’t think that he ever had the chops to be a “big bad politico” but he was trying to play with the big boys and got caught with his hand in the Veco cookie jar. I’ve met him a few times and I feel that I’m a pretty good judge of character. He doesn’t give off the “I’m entitled” vibe like some other politicians that I’ve met. That is my observation.

    • GoI3ig says:

      If by “play with the big boys” you mean take illegal bribes, then it was mission accomplished. I too have met Koring, and he came across as a hapless dolt. This suit should be summarily dismissed.

    • John says:

      I don’t think Vic ever felt entitled like Ben Stevens or a few others. But he did take money from someone who was trying to influence his vote. He plead guilty to the crime. If he didn’t think he had done anything wrong, he should have told that to the judge.
