wow... it takes some skill to lose a BILLION dollars
Hmmm, no party affiliation mentioned.
Let the mob deal with her first and if she’s still alive, throw her in jail, confiscate all her assets and all of her family’s assets........Unbelievable
I remember when mayor Mo was caught in the middle of a drought with two water meters on her house. Don’t know what the fallout from that was. Probably nothing much.
Wow, they did mention it. *shocked*
Knew it wasn’t one of ours or it would have said Republican Mayor....
Buried in the article;
O’Connor was the Democratic leader of California’s second-largest city from 1986 to 1992. The two-term mayor was elected San Diego’s first female leader after eight years on the City Council. She was married to Robert O. Peterson, founder of the Jack-In-The-Box restaurant chain.
Surely that number can’t be right even for such a timeframe . . . won and lost a billion?!
Since her party affiliation is not listed, I presume she’s a Dem?
This is my family.
She was Bob’s third wife and a huge mistake.
Shame on her.
I am a long time resident of San Diego and I have always hated that phony. I remember when she was mayor she did everything she could to block the Indian tribes from building a casino in San Diego. She was holier than thou speaking against the evils of gambling. Her dirt bag brothers were involved with card rooms in San Diego.
She is a lesbian and did not have two coins to rub together until she married a rich old geezer with cancer.
Roger Hedgecock defeated her in the mayoral race back about 1984. The the San Diego Union Tribune was owned by Helen Copley (another lesbian who got rich by marrying her boss, the newspaper owner). The newspaper got the political hack district attorney to indict Hedgecock on phony campaign law viotations. He was convicted on one count and forced to resign. She steps in and becomes mayor. Hedgecock’s conviction was later overturned.
As mayor 0’Connor flew around the world visiting airports on “fact finding” tours and accomplished nothing. We still don’t have a decent airport, but she put on a Soviet Art Festival and a Faberge Egg show. She was a huge fan of Ted Kennedy. She makes Barbara Boxer look like a paragon of virtue.
I cannot wait to hear Rodger Hedgecock’s comments.
Response: A Democrat to boot!
Comment: By now it should be starting to dawn on a dumbhead here and there that Democratic politicians are vice addicts. Democrats possess every vice known to man whether single vices or combinations of multiple vices. (Usually the latter.)
When I finally mentioned this phenomenon to my wife, she spluttered with rage "men still commit most of the crimes and most of the violent crimes!" I admitted as much, but the facts are women are far ahead of men in this particular area for the last thirty years. Now whenever one of these stories crops up in the news and the perp is a man she shouts "see, men steal money too!" with enormous satisfaction. But I chuckle to myself about one crime where women outpace men. I'd be interested to know how many of these female embezzlers, like O'Connor, are Democrats as well.
Not a problem for Democrats. Both of them probably consider this a resume enhancement.
This article is piss-poor journalism
Are we to believe she stole $2 million, turned it into $1 BILLION, and then lost that entire amount? If not, where did that huge amount come from?
There is no explanation from their sensationalist headline.
Wow, it takes a special kind of stupid to lose a billion while gambling.
Maureen O'Connor, on behalf of every Nevadan, I'd like to say that we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Please consider yourself comped like nobody's business at any of our fine casinos in the Las Vegas, Tahoe, and Reno areas. God bless you, and thanks again.
Would I loved to have been her bookee —
Remember the campaign treasurer, female Democrat, who got in trouble for embezzling last year? Now this. The Feds needs to look at money laundering going on in the CA Democrat party.
