Is this what mothers need?
As a member of NOW, I was ready to jump in and help out a sister in her quest for political office and make calls on her behalf this weekend, until I did a little investigative work. Wow, am I glad I saw this! If this would have been a mom that took off with the children, her butt would have been in prison for a while…not this dad though. Why did Coakley let this kidnapper, with the children for many, many years, get away with it? Is the lesser of the three evils (which includes Joe Kennedy) Scott Brown? I don’t know about that one, this just coming out from F&F tonight:
Senator Brown has been a co-sponsor of Fathers & Families’ Shared Parenting Bill, has met with F & F Board Chairman Ned Holstein, MD, and has spoken at a F & F meeting.
I tell you, I think people in this country are getting awful darned tired voting for someone just to kept the other bad people out of office.
Is there a NONE OF THE ABOVE choice in Massachusetts?

Mass. Dem Senate candidate Coakley figured in Palm Beach kidnap case
by George Bennett | January 16th, 2010
Martha Coakley — who could become the first Democrat to lose a Massachusetts Senate race since 1972 — might be a familiar name to some Palm Beachers.
Coakley is the Democratic nominee in Tuesday’s surprisingly tight Bay State special election to replace late liberal icon Ted Kennedy.
Back in 1999, Coakley was district attorney for Middlesex County near Boston. She approved a plea deal that allowed Palm Beach socialite Stephen Fagan to avoid prison after kidnapping his daughters in a 1979 custody fight and hiding them from their mother until 1998.
Fagan, who reinvented himself in Palm Beach as Dr. William Martin, said he took the girls from Massachusetts to Florida to protect them from an alcoholic mother who was endangering their lives — a claim the mother disputed. The girls were raised believing their mother had been killed in a car crash.
Fagan pleaded guilty in a Massachusetts court in 1999 and paid a $100,000 fine, served five years probation and performed 2,000 hours community service at the VA Medical Center in Riviera Beach.Technorati Tags: Massachusetts,Senate,Candidate,Martha,Coakley,Father,Easy,Children,Activism,Child,custody,Corrupt,Democrats,Legal,Mother,Relationship,Speak,member,office,prison,kidnapper,evils,Kennedy,Scott,Brown,Senator,Bill,Board,Chairman,Holstein,ABOVE,Post,Politics,Mass,Palm,Beach,George,Bennett,January,Clinton,Dems,Democrat,Beachers,Democratic,nominee,State,election,icon,Back,district,attorney,Middlesex,Boston,plea,Stephen,Fagan,William,Martin,Florida,probation,Medical,Center,Riviera,fathers,Lawyers,politicians,girlsNote: Cross posted from [wp angelfury] Battered Mothers Rights - A Human Rights Issue.
