What Fresh Hell Is This?

Missy Hart In The Tribune-Review

Remember this?

The OPJ posted a link (with a photo) to an online article detailing how it looks as if Melissa Hart abandoned her car in DC. In the House parking lot. For going on three years.

Well, Richard Mellon Scaife's Tribune-Review has picked up the story:
Having apparently left her car unattended for more than three years, you'd think Melissa Hart would have received a parking ticket by now.

Hasn't happened yet. But that doesn't mean the Republican and former U.S. representative from Bradford Woods will be able to leave her Volkswagen Jetta parked indefinitely in the Longworth House Office Building garage in Washington, D.C.

You would think Hart would have gotten the vehicle out of the garage after returning to Pittsburgh in the wake of her defeat by Democrat Jason Altmire of McCandless in 2006, when she sought re-election. But former House members are allowed to park there as long as they are not registered lobbyists, the Daily Caller Web site reported.

Therein lies the problem. As head of the Pittsburgh-based law firm Keevican Weiss Bauerle & Hirsch's government relations practice, Hart is now registered in the Senate's lobbyist database.
When something like this is reported about a conservative politician (now lobbyist) in a conservative newspaper, you know something's up.

It's time, Missy. It's time to move the car or prove that it ain't yers.

Did anyone else have a mental image of Bill Clinton sneaking in there to scrawl the "I wish my wife was this dirty" on Missy's car?

Um, no, can't say my fantasies run towards Bill Clinton getting textual with a car, but if it works for you, don't let me bring you down.

I love that Missy got all "middle class" with her Brabender-produced TV commercials and print (Dad or grand dad was a coal miner or some such crap...) but apparently has the ability to just abandon a pretty decent car in a parking lot.... Could you or I do that? What a maroon.
