NY State Senator Shirley Huntley to Surrender to Police, Claims Ignorance on Possible Charges

NY State Senator Shirley Huntley to Surrender to Police Monday, Though Claims Ignorance on Possible Charges (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Shirley Huntley, a state senator from Queens NY, called an  “emergency press conference” Saturday to announce that she would surrender to police on Monday. Huntley’s employees were accused of misusing state funds last year. She claimed that she “doesn’t know what charges” she is actually facing. Um, then why call a press conference to say you are going to surrender to police? The state attorney general’s office responded to Shirley Huntley’s announcement saying, “The appropriate forum in which to respond to the senator is a court of law, where the attorney general will prove all facts according to the rules of evidence. Those facts will speak for themselves.”

Ms. Huntley, 74, was first elected to the Senate in 2006. She had previously served as the president of a community school board. She was one of three Democrats who opposed the legalization of same-sex marriage in 2009 but switched positions to support it last year, contributing to its passage. She has not, however, been a particularly visible presence in Albany; she missed more votes during this year’s legislative session than any other senator, according to an analysis by the New York Public Interest Research Group.

I am sure Ms. Huntley has enough commonsense to have a lawyer, so feigning ignorance on what possible charges she is facing is strange, very strange. One of her aides and three others have been arrested.

Whoopi Goldberg Calls John Edwards Baby Mama, Rielle Hunter, “Heartless” Over Trashing Elizabeth Edwards in Memoir

Whoopi Goldberg Calls John Edwards Baby-Mama, Rielle Hunter, “Heartless” Over Trashing Elizabeth Edwards in Memoir (ABC)

Whoopi Goldberg and John Edwards former ‘clean-up woman’ Rielle Hunter sparred during her appearance on “The View” to promote her trashy memoir, “What Really Happened,” as if anyone in their right mind would take her word for what really happened in their relationship.  Whoopi Goldberg delivered a smackdown when she brought up how Rielle Hunter treated Elizabeth Edwards in the book saying,  “you trash a dead lady, whose husband you had an affair and a baby with, did it not occur to you that maybe that might not be the the right tone to take?” Goldberg also added “that was a crappy thing to do.” Hunter said she merely wanted “to tell the truth.” To that, Goldberg said, the whole thing makes Rielle Hunter “look bad, schemey, heartless.

Of course, ever the true narcissist, Rielle Hunter said she didn’t want to be viewed as a home wrecker. Whoopi Goldberg set her straight: “You had unprotected sex with a married man, and had a baby, and then allowed people to pretend it wasn’t happening. You put an entire nation in a very awkward position, you have to see where people are coming from.”

Rielle Hunter revealed that she is no longer in a relationship with John Edwards. Um, did she really think he was going to ride off into the sunset with her to build a life together? Old habits die hard. Elizabeth Edwards is laughing from the grave. All I can say is America needs to end its love affairs with train wrecks like Rielle Hunter.

Disgraced Former Rep. Anthony Weiner, Wife Welcome Baby Boy Jordan Zane Weiner

Disgraced former New York Democratic congressman Anthony Weiner is a proud dad of a baby boy — Jordan Zaner Weiner, who was born Wednesday, 10 days before the New Year’s Eve due date. What a difference a year makes! A baby will change anything, right? You will recall Anthony Weiner was forced to resign after lewd pictures of him surfaced on Twitter, and a sexting scandal brought his career to a screeching halt.

Well Jordan Zane Weiner, you could have grown up in Gracie Mansion if your Dad didn’t mess up. In any case, I wish Anthony Weiner and his wife Huma Abedin all the best with their bundle of joy, who reportedly checked in at seven pounds.
