Whatever happened to Katherine Harris
Osnome | 07-23-09 | Osnome

Posted on 07/23/2009 4:01:09 PM PDT by Osnome

------Whatever happened to Congresswoman Katherine Harris after she left office following her Nov. 2006 defeat?

For those who've forgotten, she was Florida Secretary of State during the controversial Nov. 2000 presidential election. For her leadership during that crisis(or because of her name recognition) she made a successful run for U.S. Representative for Florida. She was then re-elected in 2004.

She made an ill-fated run for the Senate in 2006 which she lost and lost her Representative seat.

If we’re lucky she’s plotting her revenge.

Her political career is dead!

Don’t be so sure. The RINOs are about to find they have many enemies they thought they would never see again.

Killed by RINOs. She embarrassed them by doing what was right and daring to stand up for herself.

Shoot the RINO! Shoot the RINO!

She is enjoying her time away from the spotlight, spending time with her family and loved ones, traveling, and taking art classes. Over the past few years we have become pretty good friends and I speak to her every few weeks.

I recently wrote her about Saracuda, suggesting that

“My sense is that she has faced the same hatred you did and for the same basic purposes. It is not complicated nor even particularly ideological, although that certainly plays some catalytic function. I believe the cause to be much more visceral: envy. Establishment/leftist women envy and hate you both because you are beautiful, humble, and joyous. Establishment/leftist men envy and hate you both because you have more backbone than they and remind them of what castrati they are. Add to that faith, which is simultaneously discounted by narcissists and at the core of your personhood (and despised as has been foretold), and accomplishment, something with which they are unfamiliar, and you have a toxic stew of malevolence.”

I do not get the sense that she has much desire to return to the limelight, and is instead seeking to find the path that suits her best.

My former conservative congressman was taken out by the RINOs in the last election and I’m happy to see that he has announced that he will run again.

My message to the GOP is that they need not bother trying to foist another RINO on me because he will lose.

She should have been a good candidate but the powers that be in the Republican party were totally against her. I think because she really was a conservative.

Of course the media treated her as a pariah which they always do when an attractive conservative candidate runs. For example Dan Quayle or Sarah.

Katherine Harris resurrecting her political career-!?

The only way that is even a remote possibility is if she wins a lawsuit against the creators of that
HBO propaganda-cumentary, a nasty film called: RECOUNT Even then it is so unlikely---

Yes, I have never forgiven the RNCC for undermining her bid for the U.S. Senate from the very start.


Having said that, she ran a failing campaign with high turnovers of staff and allegations of financial impropriety.
She was at one time linked to that scandal that consumed California Congressman Cunningham.

Not at all!

Just what did you mean by ‘Saracuda’?
I hope it was just a typo.

And yes, Sarah Palin and Katherine Harris do have much in common- - - do you not agree?

Right now she and her husband are busy building their no hassle castle directly on the bay in the Harbor Acres section of Sarasota. My guess is it’s a $10 million project. The best revenge is to outlive and live better than the scum that attacked her. She’s doing just fine.

Yes indeed, Liberals and Lefties hate both Sarah Palin and Katherine Harris for much the same reasons.

I am very happy to hear that:-)

That was a rough campaign, she pledged her entire estate(inheritance) to fund the campaign- - all 8 million dollars?
Well, she is doing well now and that is what counts.

Lastly: was she not supposed to write a book about her experiences?

Don't know anything about the book but I can tell you that her net worth is a whole lot more than $8 million. Her husband is a very successful businessman on top of it. She may have decided that the good life is much more enjoyable than dealing with all the dirt-bags in DC.

I posted because you appear to be interested in the well being and dismissive of Katherine Harris at the same time which makes me think you are trying to stir up trouble.
