Patty Mahany, part of a majority voting 3--2 to reject Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee's resignation, goes on a rant Monday against those who attacked the city over it's handling of the Trayvon Martin case.
I feel this city was invaded... Somebody's got to stand up for our city, somebody's got to say 'we are not a racist city, we are a great city, and we have a great police department.'

Good for Patty Mahany!
Too bad she’’s not a hottie! Regardless she should be the next Mayor. She has courage.
Megyn Kelly played this today on her show and that video even had more. Patty Mahany told the people there that the police chief has only been there for 10 months and is taking heat for past police chiefs and this one would take a bullet for any one of these people in the room. SHE WAS ON FIRE!!!!
Also reported today on FNC is that George Zimmerman is out of state and that he is relying on donated private protection services. He has no official police protection.

A Courageous Commissioner !
From the very beginning of the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case I’ve felt Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee got a raw deal. He was essentially run out of his job for deciding there was no probable cause for arresting Zimmerman. Zimmerman claimed he shot Martin in self-defense, and under Florda’s “stand your ground” law, he seemed to Lee to be on pretty firm ground. Then the charges of racism started flying, Al Sharpton and company got involved, tensions in Sanford rose to the boiling point, and to placate the angry protesters, Lee was removed from his post and placed on paid administrative leave.
Monday, Sanford city commissioners met to vote on whether to accept the letter of resignation Bill Lee had offered earlier in the day. It looked like a done deal when Commissioner Patty Mahany, as you’ll see in this report from WKMG, Channel 6, took up for the embattled chief and asked a simple question:
We need the whole video where Patty Mahany praised Chief Lee for being awarded the Medal of Valor for going in to drag out a wounded Deputy amid a fire fight and I believe she said he had been Chief for something like seven years.
It did not sound like a rant to me. It sounded like someone staking out her position. So I do not get the wow either.
Also, she really did not make the point that to me is the best defense of the Sanford police actions. When the DA says he is not going to file charges, there is nothing to investigate and thus no investigation beyond the initial investigation.
I don’t understand why any heat from those unhappy with the lack of charges was directed at the SPD rather than the States Attorney that made the call. I guess I do understand that the police make a better target for race baiters than a states attorney, but the SPD did not make the charge/no-charge decision.
Patty Mahany For Governor!
Toward duplication, please do not alter the published headline. Thanks.
Megyn Kelly showed that part today. Let’s hope it appears on her show website soon. The media is only showing bits and pieces of this. Bud Hedinger on 540 am said it is interesting this was not shown much on the local news.
Will do! Thanks!
Thanks for your understanding.
After hearing what she said, she's a 10 in my book.
“...we are not a racist city...”
Please don’t play DEFENSE Ms. Mahany.
Particularly against ignorant, aboriginal thugs whose entire existence is viewed through the lens of their thieving, violence-fomenting “racism” squeals.
To hell with megan kelly, but BROVO for Patty Mahany.
THAT woman is being courageous.
How many ways will Obama and his filthy tribe screw with her life?
And Pat Mahaney says they have a "great police force"??? Here we have an innocent white man, (until PROVEN guilty), George Zimmerman, whose head was smashed open by this Treyvon thug before before Zimmerman shot him in what looks very much like self defense according to photographs and witnesses, and the local police won't protect him? They won't bring in the State Police to help protect him? He has to pay for his own protection just to stay alive.......IN AMERICA?
I know that Treyvon is a look-a-like son for the son Obama doesn't have, (in his own words), so Zimmerman will get no federal protection from the Black Panthers' vigilantism because of Obama's racist outlook at white men. BUT THE LOCAL POLICE, DISTRICT ATTORNEY, MAYOR AND GOVERNOR SHOULD BE DEMANDING FEDERAL PROTECTION FOR ZIMMERMAN AFTER HAVING A BOUNTY PUT ON HIS HEAD BY A NATION-WIDE RACIST ORGANIZATION.
And why does everyone seem to be unaware that it was OBAMA'S racist remarks about Treyvon looking like the son he never had that sparked this whole "kill Zimmerman" craze in the so-called "black community"? That was the most divisive, rabble rousing, trouble making statement I've ever heard any US President say in my life.
What gives in America anyway? This country is so far removed from the America I grew up in that I barely, if at all, recognize it anymore as "America". I can only pray that people wake up from their delusional, collective snooze and vote the scum in Washington and their State Houses out of office, and replace them with God fearing leaders of morals, courage, backbone, virtue, leadership ability, wisdom and love of country. But something tells me, sadly, that this just isn't going to happen.
Obama didn't just fall into the Oval Office from the sky; ... he was ELECTED by Americans. And Mitt Romney, the man who designed the prototype of OBAMACARE and FORCED it down the throats of all Massachusetts residents under the power andd authority of hefty fines and jail time, is the best alternative we can come up with? That's all I need to know about who and what the majority of Americans have become. They are far too immersed in "self" to be interested in "country". The 'Dark Side' knows this very well, their time has come.
There will never be another America like the one I lived in when I was young. Back then we weren't just told we were free, we WERE free. Not perfect, not utopia; but united, hopeful, prosperous, safe, and FREE.
Good for her!
Why don’t the rrace-baiters not look at the evidence? Why do they still refer to Zimmerman’s words on the 911 tape as racial profiling?
Answer: Because race-baiters are honey badgers.
Anyone that would like to send Patty Mahany a message of support, here is her email.
Thanks Gator. I will definitely send her an email.

YES!!! Good news. Hope the Chief stays now!
As she kicks A$$ on the likes of Rev. Al and her limp wrist fellow city commissioners, I applaud her.
I’m in Seminole but not in her city but if I was she would get my vote.
If Al comes back with his Klan I’ll go stand with her.
When you ox is in the ditch, I would rather have a 4x4 pick-up than Ferrai.
Looks do not “Gitter Done”.
Her looks(?), I would be proud to escort her to the finest restaurant in Florida!
More guts than Ricky Scott who, I hate to admit, I voted for.
I have to cool down, seems i’m getting all wee-wee’d-up!
Thanks Gator. I just sent her a thank you note.
Sanford City Manager Bonaparte on why fire Lee now:
“What has become more apparent to me is that it may take 3-plus more months for an outside federal agency to come in,” Bonaparte said in the meeting.”
An “outside federal agency” is needed? Why, to see whether the SPD did anything Ben Crump and TM’s family can sue them over? Bonaparte is “Haitian-American” fwiw.
People who call themselves "African-Americans" give both continents a bad name.
