Illinois GOP Lawmaker Told Police To Ignore Her Husband's 911 Calls

News

One of the perks of elected local officeshould be that you can tell law enforcement to, eh look the other way from time to time when you need to straighten out your spouse, because, come on, right? Illinois GOP State Senator Suzi Schmidt locked her husband out of the house without a coat on Christmas and then reportedly phoned her neighborhood 911 dispatchers with a little courtesy call to tell them she was "the Lake County Board chairman for 10 years," just so they know, and then advised them to ignore her husband if he called afterward to complain of her abuse, which if he was smart he wouldn't do, since "he's kind of afraid of me because he knows I have connections." No big deal.


From the Illinois Daily Herald:

“On the 911 call, I identified myself — but I never intended to inappropriately use my title. However, I apologize if any of my comments during this very emotional time seem inappropriate,” she said.

Suzi Schmidt, elected to a 2-year state senate term in 2010, called a 911 dispatcher at 9:55 a.m. Dec. 25 because she believed her husband soon would be doing the same.

“Hi Allison, this is Suzi Schmidt. I was the Lake County Board chairman for 10 years,” she said on the 911 recording obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request. “Listen, I'm having a little problem with my husband right now.”

“Like a domestic-type problem?” the dispatcher inquired.

Suzi Schmidt said all was fine at the home, then provided some detail on what she wanted from the 911 dispatcher.

“If he calls, Bob Schmidt, you can ignore him. Of course, I just caught him with another woman, so that's why I'm a little upset,” she said.

Oh, Illinois politicians. Do not try the Rod Blagojevich tape-recording denial tricks at home. [Daily Herald]

It's the night before the two-night Democratic primary debate extravaganza, and we're already tired. Turns out having 20 candidates spread across two nights when only six or eight of them matter is not the must-see TV we all thought it was going to be! But that's not to dissuade you from getting excited! We're excited! We're so excited! We're so ...

SCARED!

In case you need a reminder, here is how it's going to go down:

Lately he's been blowing smoke from another orifice.

After a cursory examination of the TWELVE filings in the case against California Congressman Duncan Hunter just in the past 24 hours, we can confidently declare that that guy is a fucking idiot. The prosecutors have him by every last one of his short and curlies -- which is what happens when you use your campaign credit card to pay for hundreds of thousands of dollars of ski trips, video games, tuition, and plane tickets for the family rabbit.

A rational human being would have pleaded down a year ago and given up his congressional seat, since he could cash out and make a lot more money as a lobbyist anyway. But not Duncan Hunter! He made the federal government chase him down and document every last carton of cigarettes, round of tequila, and Uber ride of shame home from his many girlfriends' houses in a 60-count indictment filed last August. And still this dumb sumbitch refused to admit he was caught, even after his lovely wife (and co-conspirator) Margaret Hunter flipped on him this month -- which is what happens when you use your campaign credit card to carry on multiple affairs and you piss off the US Attorneys enough that they put every 7 a.m. Uber ride in your indictment.
