Kiddie Porn Defense: Official blames growth on spine, split personality
A public relations executive who resigned from an unpaid Los Angeles city job after FBI agents went to his Tarzana home looking for kiddie porn blames a now-excised growth on his spine for giving him a split personality and compelling him to do what normally would have been out of character.
Albert Abrams, 63, resigned Wednesday as president of the seven-member Board of Neighborhood Commissioners, which oversees the neighborhood councils that provide a link between local communities and City Hall. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa accepted the resignation.
"It is what my split personality decided to do. That's what happens when you have tumors," he replied. Did Abrams remember watching the pictures? "I was watching myself from a distance watching it." Did he enjoy them?" "Not at all," he said. Then why did he have them? "That's what we're trying to find out," Abrams said, adding that his doctor had just informed him what was going on.
