Fox Sues Al Franken For Use Of Phrase "Al Franken"
Zelda is no "girlie girl". As Ahhnold would say. But, of course, I did wish she would have consulted the AHNC legal team before she wrote O'Reilly. I immediately called our shysters after reading her email and they said Bring 'em on--but of course they said that, they are republicans.

While watching TV this morning, Joe Scarborough appears in a local ad (No, not for MSNBC) but for the law firm he works(?) at in the Pensacola, Florida area. He was praising his firm and how his family lives here in lovely Pensacola and how we should use their legal services.
Joe Scarborough resigned from the US Congress 5 months (in May 2001) after he was reelected, to spend more time with his family, or so he said. Now Joe Scab lives 1300 miles away from his family in New Jersey or is it New York?
Two months after he resigned his congressional seat, his 28 year old female aide, Lori Klausutis, was found dead, in his Ft. Walton Beach office. Did you ever hear about that in the national media? Probably not, since the press was too busy covering the Democrat Congressman, Gary Condit who just knew a missing intern.
But if you read this website, I covered that event as soon as it occurred. Click here
He appears to me, as my ex-congressman, to be sleazy guy. But sleazy republicans get rewarded with talk shows on MSNBC and a host of other media outlets.
Oddly enough I received 3 emails from a friend of Lori Klausutis' this morning. See below.
EMAIL: LorisFirend@aol.com (edited version)
Subject: Lori Klausutis
I have looked over your web site a few times and I
had a few questions.
1. Lori was obviously a popular active young woman, involved in politics, acting, marathons and a host of other activities listed on various websites and no picture was available of her, except at the University of West Florida website, and then that photo just disappeared right around the time Joe was getting involved with MSNBC about Feb of 2003. Why take her picture down after 2 yrs?
2. Possibly the family just forgot to mention she had worked for US Congressman Joe Scarborough since 1999 in her obituary? Quite a feather in her cap to omit.
Maybe you should be questioning your local officials to find out what happened to your friend Lori--instead of me, a political cartoon comedy site, who just gathered public information provided by the Northwest Florida Daily News. The Pensacola News Journal only ran a couple of stories. (Which I found to be curious, since Joe lived in Pensacola)
I was instantly curious when the police said no foul play was involved the day she was found. See link below. A conscientious police dept. would have said, "We can make no comment until we fully investigate the death scene and the get the autopsy results."

Suggestion: Maybe you should start your own website and answer the dozens of questions you asked me in the 3 emails you sent today--as a tribute to your friend and her widower.
I think she deserves to be remembered for more than being a dead aide found in Joe Scarborough's office.
But, while Chandra Levy was being dragged through the mud, and Gary Condit's career was destroyed, Joe got a free pass from the authorities and the national media. Didn't that disturb you?
I wish you and Lori's widower the best. My concern was and still is, knowing what happened to her. Maybe someone reading this website will have information to send to you.
Thank you for writing.

That date was two days after the Solstice, by astronomical reckoning, the first day of summer in the north and winter in the southern hemisphere. (NASA)
