JFC... Bill Barr's dad gave Jeffrey Epstein his first job as a math teacher at the Dalton School in New York.

Donald Barr was headmaster of the Dalton school in the early 1970s.  https://www.nytimes.com/1971/05/04/archives/article-17-no-title.html 

(Incidentally, parents at the time complained that Donald Barr was turning the school into a right-wing conformity factory; one of Barr's prominent supporters in the row was Norman Podhoretz.)

Epstein was hired in 1973, which is... kind of weird, since he was 20 years old? He was one of Barr's last hires, since Barr himself left Dalton in 1974.

And Epstein credited (at least in this glowing profile of him from 2002) the dad of a student of his for getting him his start in finance.  http://nymag.com/nymetro/news/people/n_7912/ 

*sigh*

This fucking country.
