Well here is a fine how-do-ye-do, and it involves a couple in their 80s; an email about any possible openings on the Norwalk, Connecticut, board of ed; a 38-year-old “belligerent” head of the local Democratic party wrapping her fist around her car keys to deck an 84-year-old man; and nobody pressing charges because hell, when you’re a jet you’re a jet all the way, presumably.
Let us start in the middle, since that is where NancyonNorwalk put the sexplainer of why these people in their 80s got a beatdown from the late-30s female head of the local Democrats, in a parking lot. (And really, go read Nancy’s entire post of beauty and light.) First, Regina Krummel, 82, had left a voicemail for the Democratic Town Committee Chairwoman, Amanda Brown, 38, because Krummel wanted to talk to Brown about why Brown had left Krummel off a list of people interested in running for the Board of Ed. And cut to:
Mrs. Krummel said she started to get out of the car and [Democratic Town Committee Chairwoman Amanda] Brown ran up, waving a printout of an email Mrs. Krummel had sent in April.
“She was waving it in my face as I got out of the car and screaming at me,” Mrs. Krummel said.
That email referred to Mrs. Krummel’s desire to run for the BOE. According to Mrs. Krummel, the email said, “If there is an opening for an At-Large Board of Education candidate I’d like to throw my hat in the ring.”
Brown had highlighted segments of the email, and was saying, “You said ‘if,’” the Krummels said.
SHE SAID “IF.” OK, got it? TIME FOR PARKING LOT BEATDOWN!!!
