Warrant issued for former Bill Clinton chief of staff
CNN ^ | 8/12/2009 | Cnn.com

Posted on 08/12/2009 10:00:14 PM PDT by dragnet2

Bill Clinton's chief of staff when he was governor of Arkansas is expected to turn herself in after authorities issued a bench warrant for her arrest for allegedly smuggling contraband into a state prison, her attorney told CNN Wednesday.

Betsey Wright served Clinton as chief of staff for 7 years in Arkansas and ran 3 successful campaigns for governor.

Betsey Wright allegedly smuggled a red Doritos bag containing 48 tattoo needles, a pen with tweezers and a needle inside, a Swiss Army knife and a box cutter into the Varner Unit, a high-security state prison in Grady, Arkansas, according to the bench warrant.

Wright served Clinton as chief of staff for seven years in Arkansas and ran his successful campaigns for governor in 1982, 1984 and 1986.

She may be in serious trouble here.

Don't Doritos contain trans-fat?

Wouldn’t it be something if she narced on Billy C for something he did as Governor in exchange for a reduced sentence? I’m ready for a good Clinton scandal right about now...

Will Clinton fly in for the prison rescue?

The Clintons and all their cronies are sweating because they’re not in charge anymore and I have a feeling the ones in charge don’t care much for them. And we KNOW the media has turned on them.

I have to wonder if this was done to get her to talk. Obama will not feel safe until the Clintons are gone.

"We have no choice but to seek vindication in court."

Well of course, these are just simple rehabilitation and learning tools for inmates in high-security prison.

I wanna see a pic this attorney, Jeff Rosenzweig.

She will turn herself in next week, Jeff Rosenzweig, Wright's attorney, said.

Next week? I hope she isn't inconvenienced or has to cut short a vacation.

Police said Wright, passionate defender of capital crime prisoners, claimed she found the bag of chips lying at the bottom of a vending machine.

She should know! I’m sure she was one of the ‘nutz & slutz’. Clinton didn’t keep her around for her brains that’s for sure.

Prosecutors allege that while Wright was on a visit to a prison in Grady, Ark. in May, guards X-raying her belongings found a bag of Nacho Cheese Doritos containing approximately 48 tattoo needles, a needle and tweezers hidden in a pen, a box-cutter and a Swiss Army knife. She allegedly said she'd found the bag of chips with the special surprises inside in a vending machine at the prison.

The cracker jack defense!

I read it. This nut cake tells prison officials, “I thought I was getting a free bag of chips.”

I recall that her former boss was in prison, for drug trafficking. The boss had employed Bill's drug-dealing half brother, who did inhale. Betsy ran the bond trading company while boss was in prison, and probably handled the drug dealing as well until she was recruited to run the house for Bill. Bill pardoned the boss. So who was she going to visit? Is her attorney from the Rose Law firm?

“trying to sneak items into death row inmates.”

Now that’s sneaky, bringing in items inside inmates.
Or was that trying to put the items into them without being noticed..?
Sounds painful.

No you are thinking of Maggie Williams who took files home and told the Senate Hearing that she had to go and do laundry. This is why she had Vince Foster's files in her car at home.

Yep, you’re right. But regardless, I’m sure that Betsey partipated in her share of shananigans during that Administration. You couldn’t work for those crooks without being one yourself.

On initial read, I swear this is how the last sentence of the article began for me: "Wright serviced Clinton as chief of staff for seven years in Arkansas and..."

Come to think of it, that's probably every bit as accurate as was published.
