Mary Lincoln liked a five-finger discount herself

Missed this at Marathon Pundit t'other day:
Crime committed by Illinois state employees, from the governor on down, sometimes comes from unexpected corners.

For intance, this afternoon the former executive director of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum pleaded guilty to shoplifting. Richard E. Beard was caught stealing a "House" DVD set from a Springfield Target store. Beard was nabbed twice before on the same charge.
Not clear from that whether he tried to lift the same (or another) season of House three times, or maybe tried Monk or whatever that fake-psychic detective show is the other times.

Update: Authoritative review of the Lincoln Museum here.
