Arrested GOP Aid Tells Cops She Works For A Democrat
Florida Senate Staffer Resigns in Shame (Not Hers)

Senate staffer Amanda Schweitzer, 25, of Winter Park, Fla., was arrested last week for "refusing to leave " after a college football game, yelling at the police and "pushing an officer away belligerently." Heady stuff (though around here we just call that Friday night). Schweitzer told police that "Her boss, Sen. Bill Nelson, would take care of the cops and that they couldn't do anything to her." It's a gross misuse of authority -- literally: Schweitzer worked -- she resigned yesterday -- for Florida's other, Republican, senator, Mel Martinez.

16. Whatever, it worked checking the other links one reported that
Amanda Schweitzer worked for Bill Nelson.

Again the public needs to unlearn a wrong courtesy of the GOP and the unquestioning LMSM.

20. The idiot thought she was in BLUE Massachusetts and they would be cowed
...but BC has an overabundance of GOP voters, due to the choice issue and the hard work of the Catholic church, worrying about abortion and gays while ignoring pedophelia. Also, the tuition is so fucking expensive that only fatcats like Potato Head Russert can afford to send their spawn there, nowadays.

BC has changed in the last three or four decades, and not for the better....but that's another subject!

23. What an absolute dope.
I've met many of these homegrown Republicans, fresh out of college. They have this attitude that they're smarter than everyone else and that rules are meant to be broken. I went on a carnivale cruise with a load of Chamber of Commerce ladies and the way they jumped the lines and stayed in their cabins when everybody else was asked to vacate them, is just disgraceful human behavior.

24. She had probably planned to quit anyway, but they asked her
to pull off a publicity stunt before she left.

25. Jeebus!
The audacity of these Pukes is breathtaking.

A lowly aide thinking this up at the spur of the moment? Lying is so ingrained in them.

I hate the Pukes with everything I've got, but sometimes you have to admire their evil genius.

26. Sounds like she's on her way to the top of the GOP.
Expect to see her running for president in the next 20-30 years.

28. LOL! I would swear this behavior is genetic if most of my family weren't
Republican. But even the most hardcore among them, my uncle, can't stand * anymore.

29. Maybe she was auditioning for Supreme Court Justice.
Aren't those the qualities that the Bush* Administration finds attractive?
