RS McCain calls this the "Best. Republican. Scandal. EVAH!" (jokingly, I hope). I think this is the dumbest scandal I've seen and nothing will happen to Mary Bono Mack.
She'll survive this, trust me.
There's No There There
Honestly, there is no there there. Looking at the photos, this was clearly a pose between friends. However there may be something with Mary Bono Mack hanging out with Edra Blixseth. I say "may" becase her troubles started at the same time this photo was taken:
Edra received a Montana country club for millionaires called Yellowstone in her divorce settlement from Tim back in 2008. Since then, she's been fetlock deep in financial trouble trying to hold on to the club. Eventually she filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection and the club was bought by third party investors - Cross Harbor Capital Partners. Still, Edra has been under a cloud of suspicion for certain transactions stemming from that post-divorce time frame and the latest is a massive tax lien the IRS is fixing to level against her.
I'm incline to think that this is total coincidence. This club may also be the same place where the photos may have been taken.
Mary Bono Who?
Who is surprised that she is still in office? I know I was.
Radaronline.com describes her as a "power politician" in their article. Yeah, right. After getting pass the "Sonny Bono Copyright Term Extension Act" please tell me what else she has done?
And no going to Wikipedia!
She is on the Committee on Energy and Commerce and chair of the Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing and Trade. If you want to call her powerful on that bais, then ok. Whatever.
The Great RINO Hunt Of The... MSM?
I think we can all agree that Mary Bono Mack is a RINO. And for her vote to end DADT, she gets this done to her. This should show all RINOs that the MFM hates you no matter what. They don't care that you voted to repeal DADT, they will throw dirt on you the first chance they get. Just ask Senator John McCain.
If you are a Republican and they can bring you down, they will do it. Bringing down Republicans have been their favorite sport since Richard Nixon.
Dumb? Yes. Mary Bono Mack is way too old to pose for dumb photos like this. She, of all people, should know better.
Lurid? No. I've seen people do worse. Mark Sanford and Mark Foley comes to mind.
It's already time to move on.
