Lynn Feig Rosenthal’s campaign continues to stack blunder upon blunder. It’s getting almost too painful to watch. The advantages of gender, ethnicity, incumbency, and financial dominance are being squandered with each passing day.
Today’s mishap started with a radio appearance on 850 WFTL, with Rich Stevens. The embattled judge decided to break her personal silence regarding the DUI arrest live on the AM dial. It was Ambien this and Ambien that, plus other excuses and veiled swipes at law enforcement, with the ever protective Stevens in charge of the cheer leading section. After the judge left, calls were accepted, and we made it on the air, only to be disconnected mid-sentence when the host realized some of his many nitwitisms were being inconveniently eviscerated.
It’s too bad the show isn’t available online. Feig Rosenthal had a lot to say about the arrest. In fact, it may have gone a long way to help her reelection bid, if someone hadn’t invited television news to film the broadcast, armed with their trusty BSO BAT facility videos. After Feig Rosenthal left the studio, she agreed to answer questions for the cameras, and some of her answers directly contradicted what’s seen on the aforementioned BAT video. Whatever headway she had gained with Stevens’ lopsided presentation quickly disappeared down the rabbit hole.
Check it out for yourself. The links are below. All the local affiliates except for Fox mention the Xanax and Feig Rosenthal’s contradictory statements regarding the refusals. In the meantime, we’ll try to get a full transcript of the radio show for any interested parties …
