Fabled Donut Eater to Hyde Smith Campaign

Been busy as heck folks but I could not let June roll by without sharing that I too love donuts and commenting on this:

There’s been an unexpected staffing shakeup at DMR ~ Paul Hampton

Then there’s Melissa Scallan, the public affairs director who is leaving the agency, perhaps only temporarily. Neither Spraggins nor Scallan would say much.

“Not sure if I can make the announcement as to where Melissa is going,” Spraggins wrote in an email. “Probably can very soon.”

It is at this point that I’ll disclose Slabbed has been leaked some crazy sounding tips about Palazzo’s private life which I’ll describe as a kernel of truth buried within a larger lie. For instance it took me less than two hours a few years ago to debunk a tip which maintained Palazzo and his wife were divorcing in Jefferson Parish Louisiana with the reason for the divorce being that the Fluffer was confused about his sexuality. This brings me to yesterday’s Huff Po article about the Congressman which is a must read:

One such example of Palazzo’s lack of transparency is with his family life. The Congressman has been ambiguous, perhaps ingenious, about his marital status. While Facebook pages and official websites indicate he is still married to Lisa Palazzo, court records indicate the two were divorced over a year ago. Palazzo’s official bio at House.gov still reads, “Steven lives in Biloxi, Mississippi, with his wife, Lisa, and their three children.” The LinkedIn page of Lisa describes her as still being the wife of Steven Palazzo.
