Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

We got a cordial note last night from a guy who identified himself as Gary Karpin Jr., the son of white-collar scammer Gary Karpin Sr.

The elder Karpin (in photo), a disbarred attorney turned divorce "mediator," is serving a long sentence at the Arizona State Prison for stealing from dozens of Valley folks who were trying to get divorced as painlessly as possible.

Here is one of the many stories we wrote about Karpin Sr.

Karpin Jr. told us that he's trying to live his own life quietly, is looking for a job, and is not, repeat, NOT, his dad.

So, anyone who reads this and may have second thoughts about not hiring the son because of the sins of the father, please let Gary Karpin Jr. rise or fall on his own merits, okay? 

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
