They lie at all levels.... (4.00 / 2)
In allegedly foul-mouthed Florida State football fan arrested after the Boston College game has lost her job with a Florida senator.
Amanda Schweitzer, 25, of Winter Park, Fla., resigned from the office of U.S. Sen. Mel Martinez (R-Florida), the senator's spokesman announced yesterday.
Schweitzer allegedly screamed obscenities at police and reportedly lied about who she worked for after refusing to leave the stadium after BC's 28-17 loss to FSU on Sept. 17.
She admitted to officers that excessive adrinking led to her unruly behavior, according to a police report.
"The conduct alleged to have occurred is not consistent with the high standards required for employees of the United States Senate and accordingly, her resignation was accepted with regret,'' said Kerry Feehery, spokeswoman for Martinez.
Schweitzer is accused of telling police her boss, U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Florida) would take care of the cops. She got arrested anyway in BC's Shea Field, according to a police report.
After finding a recent article on the arrest online, Nelson's press secretary stated that Schweitzer has never worked for them.
While Internet articles say Schweitzer, 25, was a staff aide for Martinez, a spokeswoman at that senator's Washington office said she was a research assistant.

Not only does she lie, (none / 1)

Martinez lies about her position.
That said, haha, her sorry republican ass is in trouble.
Our next demonstration should just be a line of across the country screaming "LIARS" in tandem.

Give the lady a little slack. Every person I know has had a few too many and said things they regret

She purposefully tried (4.00 / 4)
to make a DEMOCRATIC Senator look like he was unethical.
I don't care how drunk you are....you usually don't say things like this unless you truly are evil.
Sorry. No slack given to this littl b***h.

Please. (4.00 / 2)

She was drunk enough to get herself arrested, but sober enough to screw Democrats?
This is a person who wouldn't dream of giving you or me any slack in the same circumstances. Busted right or wrong, she was pulling a slimey trick. No slack for Rovian assholes from me, and no apologies either.
