 Vote for her for what?
 Why is this news?
Apparently this is a vote for an honor awarded to college students by Lowe’s. Ms. Anthony is quite an accomplished scholar/athlete/soldier in the making. She is also NOT GUILTY!!!
I have read this befor on FR, and quite some time ago. Who is pumping this cadet, and why her? She has an excellent resume, but could it be that I catch the sweet smell of PC wafting down the Hudson?
