Florida banker's wife left family to join Wall Street protesters
NEW YORK POST ^ | October 21, 2011 | KEVIN FASICK and BOB FREDERICKS

Posted on 10/21/2011 10:56:04 AM PDT by george76

A married mother of four from Florida ditched her family to become part of the raggedy mob in Zuccotti Park -- keeping the park clean by day and keeping herself warm at night with the help of a young waiter from Brooklyn.

“I’m not planning on going home,” an unapologetic Stacey Hessler, 38, told The Post yesterday.

“I have no idea what the future holds, but I’m here indefinitely. Forever,” said Hessler, whose home in DeLand sits 911 miles from the tarp she’s been sleeping under.

Hessler -- who ironically is married to a banker -- arrived 12 days ago and planned to stay for a week, but changed her plans after cozying up to some like-minded radicals, including Rami Shamir, 30, a waiter at a French bistro in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn.

...

The unemployed Long Island native compared her decision to abandon her family to Americans serving in the armed forces.

Must be a song, or two, perhaps a movie title, that relate to this story.

under Jeb Bush, Florida did pass a cohabitation rule for alimony. You just have to prove permanence. IOW random irresponsibile sex could be her hobby.

Florida is equitable distribution. She will probably get “something” as a flat settlement but the child custody is a totally seperate issue.

The fact she ran off to OWS is indicative of her refusal to have a job.

And we DID get married and the honeymoon is over 13 years and counting. :-)

Wow, good story. Congratulations on your new life. You seem as though you have learned a lot and brought a lot of good stuff to your second marriage. Good job.

“no I am familiar with sole custody cases based on the best interests of the children”

Maybe so...... but not in Florida.

There is no such thing as “sole-custody” in Florida. Sorry, there’s not.

Trust me, I am living proof. Could not strip my ex’s parental rights for the protection of my child. Even though I had restraining orders and child neglect judgments in hand.

Never marry a liberal. No matter how normal a liberal might seem, liberal illness is progressive, and it will turn him or her into a kook.

This woman ain’t playing with a full deck, and we’re not hearing the whole story. I’d put money on her already being diagnosed with “issues” and maybe even prescribed medication. Her eyes have that same helter-skelter runaway bride look we’ve seen numerous times before.

As a banker’s wife she probably felt like she was sleeping with the enemy. After a few weeks at the Rally Against Reality she will crawl home hungry, filthy and cold, begging to be taken back. Hope he slams the door in her face.

Mayor: Occupy Wall Street Crackdown Coming

BY Celeste Katz

Mayor Bloomberg said today that he’s going to start turning the screws on the Occupy Wall Streeters.

Our Einhorn and Siemaszko report:

The city is planning to take a harder line on demonstrators camping out in Zuccotti Park - and insist on permits every time they want to march through Lower Manhattan, he said.

“We will start enforcing that more,” Bloomberg said on his weekly radio show.

The protesters have a Constitutional right to demonstrate and have mostly been “peaceful,” the mayor added.

“There’s not been any of the kind of craziness you see elsewhere,” he said. “You may not like it, but these people have generally obeyed the law.

Still, the month-long occupation has taken a toll on local businesses and residents and the city needs to come up with “ways to let people protest without infringing those who don’t want to protest,” he said.

“I’m not trying to duck it,” Bloomberg said. “But, you know, it’s just not so easy. You can’t just walk in and say ‘Hey, you’re out of here’.”

“Zuccotti Park is not a public park,” he said. “It’s a private piece of property. They have to have it open 24/7 to anybody that wants to go in there by their agreement with the city.”

Part of the difficulty for the city is that OWS is made of a number of different groups and nobody speaks for them all.

“It’s a little bit complicated by there’s nobody to work it out with,” he said. “There just is not any one group, one idealogy, one objective, one person to negotiate with.”

“I’d be drawing up papers and serving her..” I posted this earlier today about someone in Florida doing something wacky and the financial results in a divorce here. His best hope is she does not return:

“One dingbat in Jacksonville has a better idea. She went out and had a fling with some dirtbag and then they tried to extort 50K from her hubby in a fake kidnapping caper. Found guilty and sentenced to probabtion for many years she is now free as a bird with a 10K a month divorce settlement.

I actually had to reread the article yesterday to make sure I got it right, yup, tried to steal money from her husband, who is pretty well off, and then files for divorce and gets a 10K a month settlement. I told my wife, I now see why some guys go the 9mm route rather than going to a rigged against them court system.”

She’s either mentally ill or in a sexual relationship with the waiter. Or both. Probably both.

She’s very foolish to announce that she has no intention of returning home. That’s clear evidence of abandonment, though I don’t know if you need grounds for divorce in sunny florida.

I’d have legal papers (and a new girlfriend) waiting for her back home, if she ever bothered to wander by.

I don’t know- if I were the husband I think I’d be willing to pay to be rid of her.

But her abandonment should cost her any hope of getting custody of the children.

If the roles were reversed (and it was her husband doing this) I wonder if HE’D get custody of them

Yep. Abandonment.

She won’t get anything in the divorce either. She’ll be left with the clothes on her back. Nothing more.

the kids are “with friends”

THEN she left.

she probably plans on retrieving them.

The father can show up and take them home and she can do anything. He would be smart to stay out of the media, do the legal work and do what he has to do.

Did this *itch lost her mind??? She thinks OWS is the same as the military??

Lady if you wanted -- you could've gone to the Occupy Orlando or the occupy Tampa event. (There was a sign - at the Tampa rally - reading: 'Tofu is Murder'). I'm going to an 'Occupy Theme Parks' event this weekend. (taking the kids to Sea World and Universal).

Did she say that the kids are with friends, or that they are being taken care of by friends? I thought it was the latter, which doesn’t necessarily mean that the kids are staying at the home(s) of friends.

You would be amazed how well she could come out of this in Florida. First of all, she will get some kind of joint custody. Next up will come the distribution of the assets, no matter what she did, divorce here is no fault. The hubby may even end up having to pay a support stipend.

He needs to pray she never returns and in fact, just disappears.

Ah . . she reminds me of the woman who left her husband and kids, went off on a lark, took up with another man, then fell while ice skating and broke BOTH wrists.

She was on the phone crying to good old dependable hubby toot sweet. The boyfriend had disappeared.

He came and got her, carried her home and took care of her. - A bit gullible, but I guess he loved her.

***I have a plea for my friends. I need your help and support. I want to stay occupying wall st. I feel my presence is very important in the support of non-violent communication and sanitation(keeping the park clean) I am willing to work tirelessly on these efforts. I need help with getting my kids to activities and stepping up with the things I help lead, such as one small village, jr roller derby, bee-attitudes, 4H, for his glory co-op. Please respond if you are willing to help my kids so I can stay here and help this movement. I have a train ticket for tomorrow that I want to change but I need to know I have support from my community back home for my family in order to change the ticket. *****

Narcissist/exhibitionist - counted 13 I’s and 6 MYs in that plea.

As an OWSer she will get media attention that she was obtaining thru her children. They are now fungible
