Democrat Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton Parks Her Car Like A Drunkard (Video)

Congresswoman Demonstrates ‘Worst Parking Job Ever’ – The Hill

Abandon all hope, ye who happen to park anywhere near geometrically challenged-motorist Eleanor Holmes Norton.

A HOH tipster watched in horror Wednesday as the D.C. delegate, 77, awkwardly forced her way into a wide-open spot in the carefully controlled corridor of New Jersey Avenue Southeast sandwiched between the Longworth and Cannon House Office buildings.

.

.
“If she parks like that she should not be a member of Congress anymore,” one mystified observer – who wisely recorded more than a minute of the automotive travesty – said as the video was being captured. The tipster said Norton rubbed the correctly positioned, red sports utility vehicle to her immediate left with her improperly angled silver sedan.

.

.
Per our tipster, Norton performed the sub-par squeeze-in around the same time the rest of her colleagues were crowding into the House chamber to hear the joint address by Afghan President Ashraf Ghani.

At around the 40-second mark, an oblivious U.S. Capitol Police officer appears to zoom by on a motorcycle, right past the textbook parking offense.

Once the aide seen assisting Norton from outside the slow-moving vehicle finishes waving her into clearly disastrous position, Norton emerges from the car, clicks her remote-locking device (better safe than sorry) and starts to walk away.

Then, all of the sudden, she doubles back.

Has her conscience gotten the best of her? Is she going to slide a quickly composed apology onto the now-stuck truck’s windshield? Or perhaps a business card?

Nope.

Norton simply retrieves some forgotten item from inside the car and then heads on her merry way.

Our spy estimates the entire head-scratching episode lasted about half an hour, including the painful insertion process and her 20-minute jaunt into Cannon.

Once done with her business, the tipster said Norton backed out of the space and rolled out onto the unsuspecting District streets.

“She hit the car next to her and did not leave a note, though I couldn’t see any damage,” was our spy’s takeaway from the mid-day drama.

Norton’s office disputes that anything untoward transpired.

“After the Congresswoman parked her car, we assessed the cars on either side to see if there was any damage. We could not find any,” a Norton aide assured HOH. “But we left a note with a business card so the congresswoman could be contacted in case we missed any.”

According to Team Norton, the congressional staffer who owns the truck that was boxed in by the septuagenarian pol reached out to her office about the videotaped scrape.

“The Congresswoman heard from the owner of the only car she was close enough to damage. The owner reported no damage,” a Norton spokesman said via email.

Democrat Senator Menendez To Be Indicted On Federal Corruption Charges

Democrat Senator Bob Menendez To Be Indicted On Corruption – Townhall

.

.
According to an exclusive report published first by CNN, Democrat Senator Bob Menendez will be indicted by the Department of Justice on federal corruption charges.

The Justice Department is preparing to bring criminal corruption charges against New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez, alleging he used his Senate office to push the business interests of a Democratic donor and friend in exchange for gifts.

People briefed on the case say Attorney General Eric Holder has signed off on prosecutors’ request to proceed with charges, CNN has learned exclusively. An announcement could come within weeks. Prosecutors are under pressure in part because of the statute of limitation on some of the allegations.

The government’s case centers on Menendez’s relationship with Salomon Melgen, a Florida ophthalmologist who the senator has called a friend and political supporter. Melgen and his family have been generous donors to the senator and various committees the senator is associated with.

Menendez has been under fire over the past three years for allegations of hiring underage prostitutes in the Dominican Republic, for accepting suspicious campaign donations and much more. Yahoo has a rundown of the scandals surrounding Menendez here.

I should point out that the timing of the indictment is interesting. Menendez has been a harsh critic of President Obama’s policy and negotiations with Iran and has been a staunch supported of Israel.

Former Falls Church, VA Democrat Party Chairman Tried To Hire Hit Man To Murder Little Girls He Molested

Former Democratic Chairman Contacted Hit Man To Murder Little Girls He Molested – Gateway Pundit

Democratic chairman Michael Gardner is accused of assaulting a family member who was under 13 at the time of the assault, officials said. He also reportedly molested two little girls at his daughter’s sleepover. (WUSA)

Michael Gardner reportedly tried to hire a hit man to murder the two little girls he molested.

The Washington Post reported:

A former Falls Church Democratic Party chairman, charged with molesting two young girls, talked about hiring a hit man to kill them before they could be witnesses at his March 4 trial, according to court documents.

Loudoun County prosecutors said Michael Gardner, who is scheduled to stand trial for allegedly molesting the girls, approached an inmate about finding someone to kill the girls. The inmate reached out to authorities last month.

In a letter, received by authorities last month, the inmate told Gardner that he knew someone who could “help with…. the ‘3 problems’ you have pre-trial,” according to a motion filed by the prosecution on Thursday, allegedly referring to the two girls and a unspecified third issue. The letter was sent from the inmate in response to “multiple and specific conversations” Gardner allegedly had with the inmate, according to court papers.

Loudoun County prosecutor Nicole Wittmann said she did not know whether Gardner contacted a hit man.

Gardner was convicted in 2012 of molesting two girls, who were 9 and 10 at the time, during a slumber party for his daughter’s 10th birthday.

He was sentenced to 22 years in prison. Then his conviction was overturned by the state Supreme Court, which said the trial judge improperly stopped Gardner’s defense attorney from asking character witnesses about Gardner. He was granted a new trial.

Prosecutors from the Loudoun County commonwealth’s attorney’s office are handling the case, because the Arlington County commonwealth’s attorney knows the Gardner family.

In a motion filed Thursday, which was provided to The Washington Post, Loudoun Deputy Commonwealth’s Attorney Alejandra Rueda, who is prosecuting the case with Wittmann, quoted a letter from the inmate to Gardner.

“I want you to know I haven’t forgotten what we’ve discussed. The friend you asked me to contact to see if he could help with the ‘3 problems’ you have pre-trial will be passing through VA on a FL to NY ‘run,’ ” the letter said, according to the motion. Referring to the alleged hit man, the letter continues: “Get back to me right away because I don’t [want] his visiting you to interfere with Robin and the kids [sic] anticipated visit.”

Democrat Congressman: One Third Of Obama’s “Dreamer” Children Were Raped On Their Way To The U.S.

Rep. Cuellar: One-Third Of Unaccompanied Illegal Alien Children Were Raped – CNS

.

.
In an interview on C-SPAN’s “Washington Journal,” Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas) said Thursday that one-third of the unaccompanied illegal minors – girls and boys – apprehended at the U.S. border had been raped during their journey.

“And half of those – I would say about one-third of those kids have been raped, have been brutalized on the way up here, so we have to take care of those kids and then respect the immigration laws, and the ones that have to be returned will be returned under the law,” said Cuellar.

“But again, I’m for supporting strong border security, but once those kids are here temporarily, we have to treat them with respect,” he added.

The one-third that Cuellar cited is comprised of both girls and boys who were sexually assaulted on the U.S., Cuellar said.

“And like I said, the kids that we talked to and the folks that take care of them, about one-third of those kids got raped on the way up here – little girls and little boys that got abused on the way up here,” he said.

So far, 5,143 unaccompanied illegal children have been apprehended along the Southwest border during the first two months of Fiscal Year 2015 (Oct. 1, 2014 to Nov. 30, 2014), according to the Customs and Border Patrol.

As CNSNews.com previously reported, 68,541 unaccompanied minors were apprehended during Fiscal Year 2014 (Oct. 1, 2013 to Sept. 30, 2014).

Democrat Senator Mary Landrieu Gets Stomped Like A Bug In Louisiana Runoff Election

Landrieu Loses Reelection Bid In Louisiana To Republican Challenger Cassidy – Fox News

.

.
Louisiana Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu lost her reelection bid Saturday in a runoff race with Republican challenger Rep. Bill Cassidy, despite a relentless, against-long-odds effort.

Landrieu, who was seeking a fourth term, trailed by double digits and had lost most of her support going into the election. With 100 percent of the precincts reporting late Saturday, Cassidy had received 56 percent of the vote, to 44 percent for Landrieu.

Landrieu barnstormed the state this week, driving some 1,200 miles in a rented SUV, stopping in little towns and bigger cities, making one last appeal to voters to give her another term in Washington.

“There is no quit,” Landrieu said in her concession speech. “It’s been nothing but a joy to serve this state for over 34 years.”

Cassidy’s win extends the GOP’s domination of the 2014 midterm elections that put Republicans in charge of Capitol Hill for the final two years of President Obama’s tenure.

Republicans will hold 54 seats when the Senate convenes in January, nine more than they have now.

“Once again, voters have spoken clearly,” Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said. “They have rejected the Democrat agenda and the Obama-Clinton policies that have produced higher healthcare costs and job-killing regulations.”

The race mirrored contests in other states that Obama lost in 2012, with Landrieu joining Alaska Sen. Mark Begich, North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan and Arkansas Sen. Mark Pryor in defeat. Democrats ceded seats in Montana, South Dakota and West Virginia after incumbents opted not to run again.

Like victorious Republicans in those races, Cassidy, 57, made his bid more about Obama than about his own vision for the job. An Illinois native and medical doctor, Cassidy made few public appearances during the runoff, seeking to avoid missteps that could change the race.

But in a state where 73 percent of white voters on Nov. 4 told pollsters they “strongly disapproved” of the president, that was enough to prevent Landrieu, 59, from finding her footing. Cassidy also enjoyed a prodigious advertising advantage in the runoff: Of every dollar spent by outside groups during the one-month runoff, 97 cents benefited the congressman.

Landrieu had narrowly led a Nov. 4 primary ballot that included eight candidates from all parties. But at 42 percent, she fell well below her marks in previous races and endured a one-month runoff campaign that Republicans dominated via the airwaves while national Democrats financially abandoned her effort.

In the South, Democrats will be left without a single governor or U.S. senator across nine states stretching from the Carolinas to Texas. The House delegations from the same region are divided almost entirely by race, with white Republicans representing majority-white districts, while majority non-white districts are represented by black or Hispanic Democrats.

Landrieu tried several messages over the course of her losing effort.

Most recently, she had hammered Cassidy as being unfit for the job and interested more in partisanship than helping Louisiana. She directed her most pointed criticism at Cassidy’s medical teaching job with the Louisiana State University hospital system. Calling Cassidy “Dr. Double Dip,” Landrieu suggested the congressman collected a $20,000, taxpayer-funded salary for little or no work, describing gaps and discrepancies in Cassidy’s LSU time sheets. LSU said it’s looking into the time sheet questions.

She argued that the race shouldn’t be about Obama, but also targeted advertising on radio stations geared to the black community, where the president remains popular.

Her anchor argument was that her senatorial seniority was a boon for Louisiana, particularly her chairmanship of the Senate’s energy committee, an important panel for this oil-rich state. But that argument was gutted on Nov. 4 when Republicans won the Senate majority, meaning Landrieu would have lost her post even had she won.

Landrieu, who said a campaign canvasser was fatally struck by a vehicle Saturday, managed last month to get the Democrat-controlled Senate to vote on her bill to approve the Keystone XL pipeline, which would have helped with voters in oil-rich Louisiana. But the measure failed when she could not get one more Democrat to vote in favor of the plan.

Louisiana Democrat Party Operative Slanders James O’Keefe, Then Runs Away When Confronted (Video)

Landrieu Operative Slanders James O’Keefe, Then Runs When She Sees Him – Rebel Pundit

.

.
You may remember Kirstin Alvanitakis, who assaulted me in the video that RebelPundit broke earlier this week; she’s the Communications Director of the Louisiana Democrat Party. You also may recall she’s a little obsessed with muckraking video journalist James O’Keefe, and declared on camera that James O’keefe “illegally wiretapped a Senate office (of Senator Mary Landrieu).” Anything to distract from Democrat Senator Mary Landrieu’s disastrous runoff campaign, which Landrieu seems poised to lose this Saturday.

Illegally wiretapping a U.S. Senator’s office, or anyone’s office for that matter, is a felony, however James O’Keefe never illegally wiretapped any senate office, so today he confronted Alvanitakis, and gave her a chance to retract her comments.

While Alvanitakis was confident in her remarks while on camera with me, the look on her face was priceless when James O’Keefe paid her a visit.

O’Keefe was in Baton Rouge on Thursday, announcing that he’s filing bar complaints agains some of the now-disgraced attorneys who prosecuted him years ago for one of his journalistic endeavors. As O’Keefe’s Project Veritas website says:

O’Keefe’s prosecutor Jan Mann, Jim Mann and Sal Perricone have been forced to resign and surrender their federal Bar credentials, but they are still able to practice law in state courts. Their boss, Jim Letten, was forced to resign but is now a Dean at Tulane. Most egregious, Karla Dobinski has had no real disciplinary actions taken against her. She is currently working in the same DOJ component involved in recent major Ferguson, MO and NYC issues.

“It is in the public’s best interest that none of these people should be able to practice in either state or federal court again,” said James O’Keefe.

This video tells it all, when Alvanitakis sees O’Keefe. Not only does she not accept O’Keefe’s offer to retract her comments, O’Keefe then informs her that he will be filing a lawsuit against her as she flees the scene.
