Lady mayor: Love hurts
Boston Herald ^ | April 10, 2009 | Richard Weir and Katy Jordan

Agawam Mayor Susan Dawson claims that she took a beating, and it wasn’t in the polls.

Dawson was recovering yesterday from a concussion after being ambushed Wednesday in a Springfield bar by the estranged wife of a developer whom she is dating, according to the mayor and police.

“She saw me go into the ladies room. She laid in wait. When I came out, she grabbed my face, my ears and my hair and started yanking my head. It was pretty violent, like shaken-baby syndrome,” said Dawson, 44. “She pulled my hair and threw me sideways into the wall. My head apparently hit the wall. As I was going down, she kicked me. . . . And then after that, it’s a blur. I was in and out of consciousness.”

If she thinks that’s bad, wait until they find that she has been slipping contracts to her developer boy friend under the table. LOL

Agawam Mayor Susan R. Dawson sits with Mark E. Benoit at a wrestling match at Agawam High School last December.

Celeste Benoit of Longmeadow in a photo taken in 1997.

A police report from Wednesday's incident states that Celeste Benoit spotted Dawson and Mark Benoit at the restaurant, and screamed: "What are you doing with my husband of 26 years, you whore?"

Dawson, in turn, called her "a skank," the report states.

Based upon the photographic evidence the court sentences Mrs. Benoit to an anger management class, Mr. Benoit to a thorough eye exam and Mayor Dawson to Weight Watchers, with a warning from the Fashion Police.

Next case!

What do you expect? I can't blame the wife. If some dude was messing around with my girlfriend, I'd beat the crap out of him.

Then I'd walk away from the relationship after beating the crap out of the other guy.

My thoughts also. Interfering in marriages is all part of community organizing.

I'm finding it difficult to have sympathy for any of these people.

She laid in wait.

Positively Shakespearean, for Springerian subject matter. Adds a whole 'nother meaning to "lady in waiting." Maybe ol' Jerry needs to troll Massacusetts bars, instead of white trash trailer parks and ghetto projects, for his "guests."

Uh yeah, under most circumstances, a Mayor openly having it off with a major developer would be considered the obvious scandal.

The Jerry Springer stuff would be beside the point.

If that’s her in 1997, then imagine what she looks like today.

On second thought, DON’T.

GUILTY AS CHARGED.

Mr. Benoit must think dirty blondes with bangs are attractive.
