    (CNN) — "It was like we won the lottery," Beth Rosser remembers. Her dad, Forest Jenkins, had just secured a $200,000 contract to work at the biggest prize in Atlantic City: Donald Trump's Taj Mahal.

    His company installed toilet partitions -- not exactly glamorous, but important nonetheless. It was 1988, and a six-figure contract was huge

    "It was a big job. It was great. We were all excited," says Forest's son Steven Jenkins. Jenkins spent a month working at the Taj. "I had the fuzz from those carpets on the wheels of my dolly for months after that job."

    But what seemed like a winning ticket soon turned into a nightmare when the paycheck never came.

    Trump reminds me of this megamillionaire hotelier in NYC whom I sued on behalf of several small businesses whom she refused to pay just because she could. She was later indicted and imprisoned for tax evasion. She's known for the following statement: "We [the rich people] don't pay taxes. Only the little people pay taxes." She's now dead and most likely canoodling with her kind (eventually to be joined by Trump and his cabal). BIH (Burn in Hell).
