A what point does a crook get considered a victim or vice versa?

Bizzyblog brings to our attention today an article in the Capital Weekly titled "Foreclosure tale shows that nobody is immune from crisis" that attempts to portray a congressional thief as a victim. The situation involves Rep. Laura Richardson (D-CA). She bought a second home and then decided not to pay for it. I may be a little confused, but I always thought that the correct word for buying something without paying for it was "stealing."
While being elevated to Congress in a 2007 special election, Richardson apparently stopped making payments on her new Sacramento home, and eventually walked away from it, leaving nearly $600,000 in unpaid loans and fees.
Here's the punch line, this character is going to be voting on legislation forthcoming to bailout the other equally irresponsible people (IP's). By the way, if you belong to the group I'll refer to as RP's (Responsible People) then the jokes on you. The only victims in this phony crisis will be the tax payers who will foot the bill incurred by politicians trying to pretend they care.
