Fox News Megyn Kelly has finally broken the wall of silence on major news coverage of the brutal beating of Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindals top fundraising staffer. A full transcript follows below.
Della Burning, mother of Jindal staffer Allee Bautsch, confirmed that her daughter had been savagely beaten. She refused to discuss whether or not politics were involved (although at one point in the interview she did say the report was accurate when New Orleans Police Information Officer said slurs hurled at her daughter during the attack were political in nature).
Burning confirmed her daughter's leg is broken in four places and she has five surgical scars and a steel rod now running from her knee to her ankle with seven screws holding it all in place. She did not fall and break her leg as was reported in the lonely and inaccurate story done by the Associated Press. http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5ikzm03fmGCMbjFoF2UvfkbGhPm2wD9F2GLOG0
Burning also confirmed that the attackers did not rob her daughter or her daughters boyfriend.
The attack happened one week ago today as Bautsch and her boyfriend left a $10,000-per-plate Republican fundraiser at Brennans Restaurant in the French Quarter where a local group of anarchists, the Iron Rail Collective, were among radical leftist groups that organized a protest outside. Attendees had to run a gauntlet of these aggressive protesters hurling slurs as they left the event.

[A quick transcript, all errors mine.]
KELLY: One reporter says that he spoke with the Public Information Officer at the New Orleans Police and that Public Information Officer said that insults of a political nature had been hurled at your daughter and her boyfriend during the attack. Do you have any problem with that report?
BURNING: Honestly this is not a Republican or Democrat problem, this is a problem that a young girl and her boyfriend were attacked and the story hasnt really come out. And I just want to make sure that these guys are found. Thats the important part of this. There is accuracy in the story. I just think that yes when you do the investigation you do look at the people who were in the area at the time, to be able to bring the right people in for questioning. Thats the really important part.
KELLY: We certainly hope so. Della hows your daughter doing?
BURNING: This was very serious. She has four breaks in her leg. Its her left leg. She has a rod that goes down the entire center of her leg with seven screws. She has a screw through her entire ankle.
KELLY: Oh, my goodness
BURNING: For a mother, its a lot you know the recovery is enormous. She has five different scars that shell have from this. So this isnt just something that, you know, that she was pushed down on the ground or something or that she fell. That is not the case.
KELLY: They were stomping her.
BURNING: Joseph and Allee, it was such a terrible thing that, I think that coming out of it, it took a really long time to even be able to make sense of the whole thing. You can understand when something like that happens to you.
KELLY: I know that the report says she broke her leg in five places, he broke his nose, as well
BURNING: He has a fractured jaw, a broken nose, a black eye
White people getting a deserved beating isn’t a hate crime in Obama’s eyes, that’s why.
When they're being offered blindfolds and cigarettes.
It's looking that way isn't it?
Somewhere a GOP senator is probably ‘reaching across the aisle’ and calling them ‘my friends’.
Just ordered a case of Remington 12 gauge 00 buck. I would have love the opportunity to have gone to work on those thugs.
Bring it on.
It is time to carry an equalizer, folks.
Carry a concealed weapon and use it for defense. Everyone at Free Republic knows exactly what I’m talking about here.
The radical bullies won’t stop, but we can make them pause and back away if we bluntly show them they’re gon’na die.
The left always counts on that with most things they do. They do things so out there that the sheeple ignore it, almost like a UFO sighting. I got that response when I explained Fistgate to people.
If this had happened to my wife or kids, they'd have to sedate me to keep me from going Dexter on their asses.
From another report it sounds like the boyfriend got suckered the moment he turned around. They had no chance at all.
This is worht a ping to the Dinosaur Media Deathwatch list.
“group of anarchists....were among radical leftist groups”
There’s a contradiction if there were ever one...
Prayers for their continued recovery.
This is getting nasty, folks...
Too bad they weren’t gay. Every national law enforcement agency would have a full team of investigators on it and every pony-tailed male in New Orleans would have been dragged in for questioning.
I am loath to state this on the internet but I am so outraged that I must. Had this attack happend to my wife and me, we would not have suffered the bastards to live. God help this poor couple.
I heard about this on Tuesday via the local Shreveport radio station that I get here in East Texas. Evidently, the attackers were overheard saying something to the effect that they were going to “get” them because they had on Palin buttons.
The local announcer was adamant that Gov. Jindal’s office should put out a press release on this dispicable crime (since it was on a member of his staff), but that they didn’t want to do it because of the “on-going police investigation.”
Street Thugs and Chicago Politics. Welcome to Obama’s America.
And it's all coming from one side. We are all still largely in denial about this coup.
Funny, I just watched a documentary about the Communist takeover in Czechoslovakia. The communists never had even close to a majority or popular support. They seized power. These asshats have half the ignorant and uninformed country supporting them. Where do you think it is heading? I don't think 98 percent of the Republicans in Congress have as much knowledge about how communists operate as I just picked up just watching a one hour documentary.
A: "When they're being offered blindfolds and cigarettes."
Nominated for post of the day. Succinct, accurate and with a breathtakingly clear historical perspective.
You've also said it before, my friend: there's only one way this can end. How much more of this will we endure?
