Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

The Knucklehead of the Day award

Today's winner is Laura Lee Medley. She gets today's award for the following-

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A wheelchair-bound Los Angeles woman, who has
repeatedly filed lawsuits over access for the disabled, got up and ran after
police arrested her for fraud, authorities said on Thursday.

Laura Lee Medley, 35, had sued in at least four California cities over injuries she
claimed she sustained while trying to navigate her wheelchair before she was
suspected of fraud.

Medley, who claimed to be paralyzed from a drunk driving accident, was tracked to Las Vegas where police there took her into custody and then, when she complained of medical issues, to a local hospital, Long Beach prosecutor Belinda Mayes said.

"She gets to the hospital and while she's waiting for an examination, she gets up from the chair and runs," Mayes said. "Somebody remarked, 'That's where the great miracle occurred.'"

Medley sprinted through the hospital corridors but was quickly
apprehended by police and booked pending extradition to San Bernardino, southern California, where she is facing charges of filing false documents, attempted grand theft and insurance fraud.

Medley has sued the cities of Long Beach and South Pasadena and counties of San Bernardino and Riverside over various injuries she claimed she sustained in her wheelchair. She was also being sought on arrest warrants by the states of Oregon and Washington, Mayes said.

OMG, this woman is creepy. Knucklehead doesn't do her justice. Bullwinkle says Ms. Medley has cheapened the suffering the handicapped go through on a daily basis. I agree and she's done a great deal more harm also. For that, Laura Lee Medley is today's Knucklehead of the day.
