Tweets Jerry Saltz, who was one of many "prominent art world figures" who wrote letters to the sentencing Judge on Mary Boone's behalf.
Paddy Johnson isn't having it:
"Taxes pay for food stamps, Medicare and the NEA. It’s not bad ass to opt out of those responsibilities so you can make improvements to your million dollar apartment and not stealing from your artists too doesn’t make it any better."
Nor is Rachel Wetzler:
"I'm not exactly cheering for Mary Boone to go to prison, but how warped does your worldview have to be to believe that it's OK for a millionaire to dodge taxes because you like her gallery programming?"
Nor is Columbia's Shamus Kahn:
"Spare us your righteous indignation about elites. Guess it doesn’t apply when they’re liberal and your friends."
UPDATE: Saltz waves the white flag: "BOY did I call this one wrong."
