2. Has he been ordered by the court

to return the money? If so, they can sell his house, cars, jewelry - anything, really.

Edited to add: In that case he would probably just declare bankruptcy.

4. A bankruptcy attorney commented about his assets.

She said he probably has hidden his assets. Then he will declare bankruptcy when all the suits land.

8. LOL - you know how many people hope he does just that?

And further, wouldn't he be forced to account for where the money went?

15. Isn't it illegal to hide assets from bankruptcy?

Not that any prosecution would occur, since we're talking about a millionaire of course, but if his net worth was $4000, I'm sure that they'd draw and quarter him.

16. As most of us here know from the most recent election,

even simply HIDING assets held offshore - by declining to report them to the IRS - is a felony in most cases.

18. Good point! Silly me--I wasn't thinking of the tax implications.

Release your tax returns, Mitt! I mean Lance!

7. That should help the Post Office with its fabricated financial problems

If the Postal Service is in such dire straights, whey did they support a cyclist who would be cycling in France?

12. why should he

all sports are doping, certainly football injects daily, baseball does it. When money is involved, the coaches cheat. The other bicyclists doped as well, they just didnt win so didnt get spotlighted. Lance has done so much for Cancer, I forgive him.

17. Lance talked shit on all of the people who rightly accused him

In many cases, they were cyclists who'd already been revealed to engage in doping, and when they said "Lance did it too," he attacked them bitterly, questioning their motives and their honesty and their own doping history.

He should be held to a higher standard because he postured himself as a righteous and pure athlete who would never tarnish his sport or his body with those evil drugs. Yet there he was, doping up along with the rest of him while smiling his hypocrite's smile.

He's an opportunistic asshole who happened to generate money for cancer research. Incidentally, you know his whole charade as a cancer survivor who struggled back to the top thanks to his own will and determination? He lied about that, too.

Fuck him. He's a cynical, lying, hypocritical cheater. He deserves what he gets.
