New DHHS Early Ed director called Hillary Clinton “butch”

The state’s new head of early education programs referred to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as “butch” in a Twitter post about female members of the Obama Administration.

Dianna Lightfoot, under the Twitter handle @chinalight44, sent the tweet in July 2011 in response to another Twitter user who was critical of GOP politicians U.S. Rep. Michelle Bachmann and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. Lightfoot volunteered as an adviser for Bachmann’s presidential campaign, according to Lightfoot’s LinkedIn page.

“Between hillary and the other butch bunch obama anointed (sic) it’s great to finally see 2 with intelligence depth and femininity,” Lightfoot tweeted.

Update: Lightfoot’s Twitter account was deactivated shortly after this post was published.

1. She's been tombstoned.

Now I wonder what other teabaggin contestant the good ole Guv'nor will pick to pinchhit.

At least make it harder for us to find the skeletons. This one was blatantly obvious thanks to the power of the interwebs.

3. she couldn't even form basic sentences either

"intelligence depth?" I know Twitter truncates writing, but really.

Maybe McCrory dialed this one back so he can seem like he's "compromising," for a day.

4. She is opposed to public pre-K and appointed director

Not even subtle about wanting to dismantle programs she was to be the director.

She also registered to vote using a UPS store as her residence address.

6. No, not legal, but she is a Republican

It is supposed to be your residence. She apparently used one of the UPS stores as her address, not a Post Office box.

Will be interesting how much pressure WRAL, et al keep on her now that she has declined the appointment. Would expect all the others recently appointed are getting a close look, too.

7. Interesting her little 501...

has an office in Malibu where John Whiffen, M.D., Board Chairman lives.

Lightfoot has also served as the president since 2001 of the National Physicans Center for Family Resources, a small non-profit that had less than $20,000 in funding last year and has lobbied nationally on abstinence and early education issues. Her new DHHS position puts her in charge of the state’s SmartStart program, which is recognized nationally for its work helping low-income families.

“Encouraging parents to entrust their children to an institution may result in some being less responsible and reliable,” wrote Lightfoot and two doctors in the National Physicians Center policy argument against early-childhood education. “In the long run, there is great potential for early learning institutions to foster more dependency on the government (i.e. taxpayer) and more of an entitlement mentality.

The group’s policy page, which advocates children being taught in the home in their early years, also cited a 1997 poll from the fashion magazine Glamour stating that 88 percent of women would work from home if they could afford it.


The press release from McCrooked of her appointment, is no longer available on line.
I hope each of his "high ideals" appointments and their cronies experience dematerialization into nothingness just like the press release.


Looks like a low budget 501 with trips to China, Africa and Malibu. Pa leeez!! Sinks to high heaven of crooked.
