David Samson Brags About Screwing Taxpayers in Survivor Bio

It's hard to outdouche Justin Bieber on a day like today, but, damn it, Marlins President David Samson is certainly going to give it his best shot. The guy who took off in the middle of the season to go film some silly reality show, proves himself to be an A-class asshole in his official bio for Survivor.

When asked what his "personal claim to fame" was, he replied, "Got local government in Miami to contribute over 350 million dollars to a new baseball park during the recession."

It's like not only does he know he's a total asshole, but he's proud of it.

To put that in perspective, the man was president of team when they won the 2003 World Series. And yet, he's more proud of the fact that he screwed over taxpayers than he is leading a team to the summit.

This is how the Miami Marlins work: the team leadership is more proud about making money for themselves then they are actually winning on the field.

Samson also says that one of his strengths is "leading without actually being a leader."
