Special “Mean Jean’s Ethics Case Update” E-dition


Trump’s 519th Day In Office

And No Jail Time Too (Just Like Hillary)


At this morning’s meeting of the Conservative Agenda, Political Insiders were asking Beloved Whistleblower Publisher Charles Foster Kane about that time our Feckless Fishwrappers reported some “really current news” when they said “Former Congresswoman Jean Schmidt was listed among the history and political science faculty at Chatfield College, a small, two-year Catholic school that has campuses in Over-the-Rhine and Brown County. Neither Schmidt nor a college spokeswoman returned messages seeking more details.

On November 25, 2014 in our “Real E-mails From Real Subscribers” Edition, The Blower had long ago published: “This Thanksgiving, I’m thankful I’ve found a job teaching politics at Chatfield College, wherever the hell that is. —“Mean Jean” Schmidt, Shown Above Cavorting With Her Favorite Dancing Partner, Beloved Whistleblower Publisher Charles Foster Kane  

Curiously, today when we checked the Chatfield College faculty web page, Mean Jean’s name or picture didn’t seem to be included, although her name was last on the list of members of the “History and Political Science Faculty.”

Maybe our Fishwrappers should have updated Jeremy Fugleberg’s old story about Southwest Ohio’s Most Embarrassing Elected Official in History (Including Jerry Springer) who faced a $2,500 fine for not reporting legal assistance provided by a pro-Turkish group [READ MORE HERE], but The Blower still wonders why that so-called House Ethics Committee didn’t make “Mean Jean” re-pay the rest of that $500,000+ in legal fees to her Turkish attorneys.


Also not mentioned in our Forgetful Fishwrappery is whatever happened to “Mean Jean’s” Chief-of-Staff/Campaign manager who helped get her in all that trouble. The Blower pointed out “Bad News Barry” was also the former campaign manager for one of the 2016 unsuccessful Republican Presidential Candidates and after he quit that job, he was actually reported to be an “adviser” to the Trump campaign, probably something akin to Eric “Call Me Crazy” Deters’ Non-Attorney NoKY Spokesman position. 

These days Clermont Cronies are wondering if any of those totally unsubstantiated rumors about “Mean Jean” could be true, especially the one that has “Her Meanness” angling to replace long-time Whistleblower Person of Consequence John Becker in the Ohio statehouse when he’s term limited. The Blower’s Clermont County Snitch (probably not Chris Hicks) says many members of the Clermont County Republican Party never thought it would be possible to trade down from John Becker!

Now for your Weekend Reading Assignment, The Blower has some actual FEC documents:
