Richard Stern was a prosecutor for Dade County in Florida. But, unbeknownst to his colleagues, he also wanted to be a star on the Internet, so he shot amusing (perhaps ridiculous) videos of himself and uploaded them onto YouTube. Not necessarily the best move for a prosecutor.
Fearing that his YouTube videos would be discovered and hurt his ability as a prosecutor, Stern quit and decided to move to Las Vegas to become a professional poker player. Now that’s going all in. (More from MiamiHerald)
