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?
