The fraud that is Jeanine Pirro

So, I happened to listen to a clip of Jeanine Pirro earlier today (something I normally try to avoid at all costs). And suddenly, I found myself wondering, "What is up with that accent of hers?" I have lived in NYC for 36 years, and I have a pretty good ear for accents generally. And hers doesn't sound like an authentic NY metro accent at all, but rather like a rather bad parody of one.

So I looked up her background on Wikipedia. Here's what it says:
Jeanine Ferris was born 1951 in Elmira, New York, to Lebanese-American parents Nasser "Leo" and Esther Ferris (née Awad).[5][6] Her father was a mobile-home salesman, and her mother was a department-store model. Pirro knew she wanted to be an attorney from the age of six.[7]

She graduated from Notre Dame High School in Elmira in three years, interning in the Chemung County District Attorney's office during her time in high school.[7][8][6] Pirro then graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from the University at Buffalo. She received her J.D. degree at Albany Law School of Union University in 1975, where she was an editor of the law review.

If you know anything about the various accents around the different parts of New York state, you know that nothing in the background above accounts for a New York metro accent, much less such a heavy, exaggerated one!

She's a fraud and a phony, just like her idol!
