Sue Kelly loses it on camera over Mark Foley!
Well, now we know why Sue has been in hiding. Because when the hard questions start flying about Pagegate, Sue doesn't know how to answer other than to say that she's a wife, a mother and a grandmother. So are a lot of people, Sue. But none of those wives, mothers and grandmothers happened to have served as Chair of the Page Board when the first pages began complaining about Mark Foley's creepy behavior.
To watch the video of Sue unraveling, head here and click on the "You have no shame" link. Doesn't it kind of remind you of the scene in the Wizard of Oz where the bad witch melts before your very eyes?
And to learn more about what Sue knew, check out SueKnew.com, a new site that should help Sue refresh her memory.
The bottom line is this: Sue either knew about Mark Foley and did nothing. Or she wasn't doing her job.
I'm trying to get attention to another long-shot race (WV-02) that has a Foley/Page Board connection.
I'm wondering if anyone here's been able to figure out anything more about the PROM fund-raising vehicle.
* Any idea who was the energy behind forming the committee?
* Is it just coincidence that Foley, a current (Shelley Moore Capito) and former (Sue Kelly) page board member were involved?
*Are there any other "interesting" connections related to PROM?
Feel free to visit us over at WV Kossacks if you want to swap notes. [Or, contact me by email if you'd prefer.]
Best of luck to you in taking back NY-19!
I'm not part of Take19. But I am a father. I'm also an independent voter. And none of the parents I know are voting for Sue. If she was babysitting our kids, she's be fired for complicity or ignorance.
Exactly what the hell WAS Sue doing while she was chairing the page committee? Was she too busy entertaining lobbyists to find out what was going on?
Her ridiculous outburst is typical--a non-fact-based defense based on emotion, not her record. Guess what Sue, the fact that you are a mother doesn't MAKE YOU A COMPETENT MEMBER OF CONGRESS. For that you need intelligence, REAL independence and a respect for the people who put you in office.
Wanna guess how Sue voted?
