WNCNN lands exclusive must-see interview with Liddy Dole

WNCNN's Johnny Joe Rockslide is back with an exclusive interview at the home of North Carolina's own senior senator, Elizabeth Dole.

For background on Johnny Joe's questions, you might want to check out this BlueNC post by Blue South, Where does Elizabeth Dole Live? He's done extensive research in to Dole's residency. Here's a relevant exerpt:

In fact, as of today, Elizabeth Dole’s mailing address on official Rowan County documents is still listed as the Watergate hotel. Why is that important? Because from everything I can see Elizabeth Dole still lives in the same place she has lived for 40 years. Washington DC.

Here's more from Blue South:

I started with OpenSecrets.org, where I discovered that she and Bob own property in many states. She owns 118.91 acres in Johnson City Kansas, valued at over a million dollars. She owns a condo with her brother in Florida. In Salisbury the only thing she owns is a “28.47% ownership interest” in a real estate development. This “ownership interest” has a value of between 250 and 500 thousand dollars. She receives rent from this property.

I then checked on her voter registration, discovering her voting address is 712 S Fulton St, Salisbury, NC. What is interesting about this is that Bob Dole is not registered to vote in the state of North Carolina. He is however, registered to vote in Kansas. In fact, the same day that Elizabeth was voting in person in North Carolina in an effort to become a Senator, her husband was in Kansas, voting in person there. How many married couples do you know that are not divorced, not separated, and yet live in different houses?

My next stop was the Rowan County Register of Deeds. Elizabeth Dole apparently owns the home where she is registered to vote. The home has a value for tax assessment purposes of just under $321,000. I am glad that she managed to actually buy a home in North Carolina. But I wonder about how much time she spends there.

In doing a little more searching, I found this article from 2005. It turns out that said home in Salisbury was bought after Christmas in 2001. Why does that matter? Well it turns out she voted in November of 2001. You see, this house was actually the home of her mother since 1937. In fact, Mrs. Hanford was still living in the house up until her untimely death, in 2004, at the age of 102.

. . .

The claim by her campaign in 2001 was that the home was owned by Elizabeth Dole. Apparently, though, the home was sold to her only after she decided to run for Senate. The home was sold to her by her mother, who continued to live in the home, it being her residence after all.

Comments

So, Blue South . . .

IT took a little while but all I have to say is "Ask and ye shall receive."
 
“All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players.”
So enjoy the drama.

I especially loved the comment

about her taking care of our troops. As in moving them along to their final resting places so they don't have to live in the miserable world she and the Child King are creating through their criminally insane passion for war.

Best Interview

...Liddy has given in a while. Can't wait to see what she shares with us next.

Oops, forgot to put where it's

Hey, do we need a LiddyGoByeBye?

Maybe I need to rethink the name. Just did some interviews and had to say I write for a blog. A few too many Rs around me..

That is fantastic.

When is this going up on dailykos?
And, stay tuned for something later this week or next that delves further into the voter registration question.

I still say Johnny Joe is the sexiest man alive

Katie is laughing so hard she can't finish Im'ing her friend.

Classic.....absolutely classic. Dole looks better than she's ever looked, which is a bit scary.

Have you noticed she has no wrinkles?

I mean it. That woman has NO WRINKLES. Pretty soon her skin is going to start to split.

Senator Dole,

More like Senator on the Dole!

You just about nailed it DQ, except for one thing she does that annoys the hell out of me; when she talks -ah she seems to end her lines - ah with ah. I see her in different women and I avoid them by association. The makeup was PERFECT! You guys are great, hope we see Mr. Rockslide ask the good Senator what she thinks about the proposed Diesel Fueled Power Plant in Woodfin. I bet she has visited the area often in her many trips back "home".

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.

Thanks for the tip, Momo.

Of course, that interview is in the 'can' but there will be more, ah.

And I know I talk too slow but I can't figure out how she says all that stuff so fast without raising her pitch . . . I literally almost can't talk as low as she does.

PLEASE ooo please

ask our senator dole what she thinks about placing the people of NE NC over a barrel with regards to the OLF? You can get years of enjoyment with this!

IM lmao...

We the dedicated reporters of WNCNN,

can ask the questions. That doesn't mean she'll answer them!

Mah Home....

...maybe she can give 'accent' lessons to the other Senators.

/snark/

You Got It!

Damn that's annoying. ;)

Liddy continues to amaze

She failed to vote on the new provisions surrounding the protection of our country from terrorists.

She was too much of a hypocrite to vote for safety and too much of a pansy to vote against workers rights.

Loved

the lipstick!

That was lipstick?

I thought someone smacked her in the mouth with an axe.

Ouch.

It was kind of funny. Whoever said "The Joker" got it right.

Be prepared for blowback.

This one is going to fly around the tubes and lots of people are going to get upset because you're making fun of an old, helpless lady.

Just remind them that this old, helpless lady is selling North Carolina down the river. The OLF. The troops getting screwed. The budget deficit. The moralizing. She's using our state for her own power trip. Which would be okay if she were using her power wisely.

It's one thing to screw us over if you live here. It's a whole nother thing to be screwed over by an out-of-towner.

There's also footage of a rare

press conference on the OLF but "someone" at WNCNN is having a bit of a learning curve situation with her new video software. More to come, folks, more to come. Should I find a secure location to store the footage? Is my computer gonna get raided?

Yep.

You're gonna get bus-ted.

I think your fine.

In order for liddy to come after you, it would actually mean she is doing any kind of action in NC! So you could place your computer outside your house and give her the address, and your computer would still be there 4 years from now as liddy wont come get it. Even if you lived next door to her.

... old, helpless lady?

Heh. That depends on who you ask.

If you're asking the Republican Senators who were sent home in January ... yep, Liddy is pretty darn helpless.

If you're asking Sen. Warner (R-Va) and the Navy brass, Liddy Dole ain't bad. She's got plenty enough power in Washington, D.C. to roll over and play dead for all the mini-deciders she hangs out with up there.

"They took all the trees and put them in a tree museum Then they charged the people a dollar 'n a half just to see 'em. Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got till it's gone? They paved paradise and put up a parking lot."

"Mah Home"

That's got to be the title of that clip. You're amazing, DQ. When the Lids sees it, she'll think she's looking into a funhouse mirror.

And where is our Democratic challenger?

And, yes,

When the Dolemites begin their twitchy whining, it'll be too late for the failed Senator.

All it takes is an announcement from a strong candidate, and Dole will likely make like a roadmap and fold.

Thanks, BlueNC for your encouragement and for making sure this and subsequent WNCNN productions find their way around the Tubes.
