TV pitchman Kevin Trudeau told a federal judge he’d prefer waterboarding to jail.
No more dapper suits for the jailed Trudeau, who wore an orange jumpsuit and thick glasses to court. Trudeau said he’s willing to be waterboarded to prove he’s not hiding assets overseas.
The judge is holding him in contempt for allegedly hiding money to avoid paying a $37 million fine.
The fine is for false claims in ads for a weight loss book. The judge cited Trudeau’s history of lying and sent him back to jail.
