Bill O'Reilly is no fan of the ACLU. Not only does he think they're terrorists and traitors; but he once stated that Hitler would have been a member of the ACLU. As the saying goes, you ain't seen nothing yet. Now that the NY ACLU has requested documents pertaining to the Nassau County Police Department's alleged assistance in what appears to be some serious "cockblocking" on the part of family values paragon, Bill O'Reilly, expect even more attacks on the ACLU. In the mood for more delicious dish, read on.
As Gawker reported last summer, Bill O'Reilly attempted to pull strings with the Nassau County Police Department in order to investigate a police officer thought to be having an affair with Bill's wife who is no longer residing with Bill who is no longer wearing that band of gold on his left hand. According to Gawker's sources, a Nassau County detective was ordered to investigate the alleged cuckolder and order him to stop seeing Bill's lady - in a nutshell, some rather nasty cockblocking on the part of Fox's traditionalist, Catholic arbiter of all that is good and noble. According to Gawker's source, the investigation was ordered by a former police commissioner who founded a not for profit foundation to which O'Reilly was considering giving a "major donation."
The web gets even more tangled. When a Long Island Press reporter was investigating, early in 2011, favors done by Nassau County cops for the foundation's donors, the paper's editor-in-chief was contacted by an O'Reilly staff person who asserted that Bill never got any preferential treatment. What makes this interesting is that the reporter never mentioned O'Reilly. What's that quote about "protesteth too much?"
John Cook, the Gawker reporter, subsequently requested that the Nassau County Police hand over all documentation pertaining to what could be inappropriate at best and illegal at worst actions to assist Bill O'Reilly in intimidating his wife's alleged lover. They refused, claiming that the documents were exempt from public scrutiny. On Monday, (1/08) the ACLU, on behalf of Cook, filed suit against the Nassau County Police Department for "unlawful censorship of public records." And while Bill O'Reilly complains about how Media Matters and Planned Parenthood shouldn't receive tax dollars, NY ACLU attorney Corey Stoughton states that “The public has a right to know how government agencies use taxpayer dollars."
We know that when Bill O'Reilly gets mad, he tries to get even. He vowed revenge against his then critic, now Senator Al Franken: "Look at Al Franken, one day he’s going to get a knock on his door and life as he’s known it will change forever. That day will happen, trust me." He told Andrea Mackris, who sued him for sexual harassment, that if any woman spoke out about his naughty behavior, "I’ll make her pay so dearly that she’ll wish she’d never been born. I’ll rake her through the mud, bring up things in her life and make her so miserable that she’ll be destroyed." Now, it appears that rather than just the usual blustering braggadocio, he might have involved a taxpayer funded entity in his revenge fantasies.
The plot sickens. Stay tuned.
Oh wait. Republicans. Ethics. Never mind.
But don’t forget that the leader of the harpie pack is an accomplished *Renaissance man who, as a published author (obscure music reviews) and a former ASSistant public prosecutor, is just so much better than those of us who are mere mortals. The Dos Equis “most interesting man in the world” has nothing on this raconteur and bon vivant who does have his sweet lips (metaphorically speaking) firmly affixed to Bill O’Reilly’s buttocks. (Wonder how much he’s paid for his – ah – service?)
*And “on air broadcasting and production?” We talking a Wayne’s World thing on local cable, LOL!
My two million dollar phone bill and a wife with her own home leads me to suspect that the average white male millionaire is under attack by Evil Lubruls. Time to hide behind the Peabody I didn’t get.
