Paris Hilton has issued a far-too-coherent statement (read: not prepared by her) on her fight to avoid jail time. "No one is above the law. I surely am not. I do not expect to be treated better than anyone else who violated probation. However, my hope is that I will not be treated worse," it reads in part. Can you say "damage control?"
Of course, anyone smarter than the heirhead (read: everyone) knows that she thinks she’s above the law. In fact, there’s rumbling that by asking California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to consider the petition to keep Paris out of jail, the Hilton family may be essentially asking for the return of a favor — over the past few years, the Hiltons have donated about $60,000 to Schwarzenegger’s campaigns. In other words, Paris isn’t above the law…at least not more so than any other wealthy person in the U.S. [New York Daily News / Image credit: Getty]
