NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Fisk University's new president, Clinton administration Energy Secretary Hazel O'Leary, was escorted off a flight and questioned by the FBI after she became abusive and tried to get into the cockpit while the plane was delayed on the tarmac, authorities said.
O'Leary said she simply wanted to get off the plane.
"I regret the unfortunate misunderstanding that occurred," she said in a statement. "The situation was resolved. At no time was I rude or disrespectful to anyone."
The United Airlines crew told police that O'Leary was "getting loud and abusive" after the flight was diverted to Richmond, Va., because of storms Thursday night, said Cpl. Frank Donkle of the Richmond International Airport Police.
A flight attendant restrained O'Leary when she tried to get into the cockpit, Donkle said, and she was escorted off the Nashville-to-Washington flight and questioned by the FBI.
Airport spokesman Troy Bell said he was not aware of any charges filed.
O'Leary, 67, became president of Fisk, in Nashville, earlier this month.
LOL ...all the EX Clinton sycophants regret something....
Terry McAuliffe said the timing of this revelation was suspicious...
Did they check her to see if anything was stolen from the airplane?
They're never jerks, are they? It's always an unfortunate misunderstanding or a mistake.
Wasn't Hazel the junket Queen? Seems I I recall she racked up a zillion or so miles of free around-the-world travel and spent like 15 minutes in the office her entire time as a Clinton apologist. Gotta give Clinton credit, he sure had a talent for knowing a loser when he saw one, (and putting them in a position of power.) Not sure which was the most unqualified of his dorks, but it had to be either Ron Brown, the bouncer who stole the FBI files or Hazel the Junket Queen.
Hang these mandarin leftist SOBs by the thumbs.

She tried to get into the cockpit, and was restrained...anyone else would be arrested and charged. Slam dunk.
Two sets of laws, one for people and one for royalty. It is wrong.
Hazel O'Leary, 14th President of Fisk University Nashville - July 13, 2004 - Fisk University announced today the appointment of Hazel R. O'Leary as its new president effective immediately. OLeary replaces Interim President Dr. Charles R. Fuget.
They may be announcing her retirement soon. Libs usually get a pass, but colleges don't like this kind of publicity.
Maybe it was one of those turboprop puddle jumpers and she overheard James Carville had assisted the mechanics to inspect the propeller nuts.
Hazel O'Leary was FBI target: Freeh urged Reno to name independent counsel over bribe By Paul Sperry © 2000 WorldNetDaily.com
WASHINGTON -- When Attorney General Janet Reno dropped her investigation of former Energy Secretary Hazel O'Leary for allegedly taking a bribe, she did so over the advice of her FBI chief, a long-secret memo reveals.
Fisk? She's tailor-made for them.
Interesting subject. Since the plane had not taken off yet, and she requested to get off, if the crew refused, would that not be considered kidnapping? Your views please.
Wasn't she Al Gore's "chief of staff" when he started putting together a cabinet?
You hit this one on the head. However you left Reno, Gorelick and Elders off the list. Shalala could make the cut also. Though lower on the power list, don't forget Barney Fag's sister Ann Lewis, his "wind her up and toss her in front of the camera" syncophant during Monicagate. Makes you wonder how many were Hillary's picks and not The Sink Emperors. And she wants to be President?
You can't be serious.
