QNS. POL PLANE NUTS
New York Post ^ | April 4, 2006 | FREDRIC U. DICKER

Posted on 04/04/2006 2:42:10 PM PDT by ConservativeStatement

ALBANY - Abusive state Sen. Ada Smith - who faces criminal charges for allegedly throwing hot coffee in an aide's face - was booted off a United Express flight last month after an angry confrontation with a flight attendant, The Post has learned.

Smith, a Queens Democrat who pleaded guilty two years ago to running a State Police security checkpoint and who has been accused of biting a cop and assaulting another aide with a butcher knife, was kicked off Flight 7990 from Albany to Washington/Dulles International Airport on March 11, after refusing to remove a carry-on bag from her lap before takeoff.

We had a drunk Russian Duma member once going from IAD-EWR. We are also the unlucky airline that had the stowaway to AUS last month. That moron is still in jail. She was re-routed through STL, because of bad WX, and felt she was above standing by. She hid in the lav and when someone had to use it, she would take their seat. After the third time, the FA got wind of it, and notified the Captain who called us over Dallas, to tell us he had 51 pax on board his 50 seater. The moron, an artist from New York named Cat Chow, was going to some music festival in Austin. The kicker? She had a bag of weed on her when the FBI met the plane!

My memoirs from this job will 1500 pages plus...

Paterson, in a statement, said Smith had been involved in several incidents that "demean her office, our [Democratic] conference and, indeed, each member of the Senate and the institution itself."

Take out the word "Smith" and you have a description of nearly any democrat in the house or senate.

She was scary crazy, too.

But that's another website.

I think McKinney is much younger and lighter, probably in better physical shape, has the better reach , but maybe if they gave Smith a baseball bat she could hold her own.

Why waste money? Sounds like she gets free passes all the time.

Any bets how much PROBATION she receives for her current "peccadilloes"...that is a what they call a crime, if they, rather than me or thee, were to commit the same act.

Just the "biting a cop" gig would result in me spending years looking for the rest of my teeth, after "falling down" three fights of stairs in a single story police station.

There was a state senator in my borough who punched out a traffic agent last year.

Keep in mind, the chairman and counsel to the Kings County Dem. Party were both indicted-and subsequently convicted-as well, so this isn't exactly unheard of.

Yeah, basically.

Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver's top aide is a convicted sex offender.

Councilman Alan Jennings is a sexual harrasser.

And of course, there's always Clarence Norman, paragon of ethics and good government.

And they wonder why no one bothers voting here.

Meh.

At least Norman is headed to the slammer, but only because another sleazy Bklyn. pol-our DA, Joe Hynes-had it in for him.

Now we have Vito Lopez-an equally corrupt, crooked Brooklyn, political hack as head of the Kings Co. Dem. Party.

The investigation that triggered all of this revolved around the issue of how someone becomes a judge in this borough.

Basically you give a pile of laundered money to your friendly, local Democratic Party leader, and voila!

You're a judge.

See how easy it is?

There is no RNC in Brooklyn.

It doesn't exist.

Kings County has the highest enrollment of registered Democratic voters in the nation, albeit an insipid participation rate in Dem. primaries, and for good reason.

The only Republican club that I know-two of them used to exist in my neighborhood, before legal trouble forced them to shutter their doors-is in Bay Ridge.

I used to be a member before it dawned on me that the age of the average member was pre-deceased.

There actually is a Young Republican club here-I know one or two members-but I've never really investigated it.

Occasionally I'll get a mailing or two advertising some meeting they're holding, usually at Peggy O'Neill's, a local bar.

Perhaps, although I tend to doubt it.

Believe it or not, years ago neighborhoods like Flatlands, Sheepshead Bay, etc., used to be conservative bastions.

I can't remember the last Republican congressman from this borough.
