    Scozzafava Calls the Cops

    How do you get rid of a reporter who is asking tough questions? You call the cops on him. That's what Dede Scozzafava, a Republican candidate for representative from the 23rd district from New York, when she was asked some questions she did not want to field.

    The way I see it, if you can't take the heat, you should get out of the kitchen. LOL.

    I was reading about this earlier, it's pretty bizarre.

    Sounds like she's a RINO, with that attitude.

    To be fair, we're only hearing the reporter's side of the story:

    I spotted Scozzafava later as she was walking to the parking lot, and asked her: " Assemblywoman, do you believe that the health-care bill should exclude coverage for abortion?" She didn't reply. I asked her twice more. Silence.

    After she got into her car, I went to my car and fired up my laptop to report the evening's events.

    Minutes later a police car drove into the parking lot with its lights flashing. Officer Grolman informed me that she was called because "there was a little bit of an uncomfortable situation" and then took down my name, date of birth, and address.
    I'm only speculating here...but if this guy approached a lone female in a parking lot at night and got in her face, she may have felt threatened even if that was not his intent.

    It was her husband that called the cops, so I hardly think she felt threatened. She just didn't want to be asked embarrassing questions.

    She is hardly a Republican. When Daily Kos endorses a Republican, you know something's funny.

    Looks like EPIC FAIL in trying to bash Republicans.

    It wasn't me doing the bashing. It was the Weekly Standard. You should have read the link. LMAO.

    You're right. The story does seem to indicate the *only* reason why the cops were called was because she didn't want to answer questions.

    I am sure there is much more to this rabbit hole.

    Good for the Weekly Standard. She is a horrible candidate and Republicans are starting to run from her as fast as they can.
