While we're waiting for Paul Stanley's resignation, we're scratching our heads over the latest revelations about McKensie Morrison. Here's a high school student body president, Latin club officer, and National Honor Society member who, in only a matter of months, is doing crack , living like a homeless person in central Florida, and watching her young husband attack a 75-year-old man with a hammer.
Then with her husband doing prison time, she moves to Tennessee, where her father lives, and starts making straight A's at Austin Peay. Her life is back on track. But her psyche remains fragile and she is susceptible to temptation, right? Hello Paul Stanley, the lech.
That's one way to look at it. The other way doubtlessly will appear shortly on conservative blogs across the state. McKensie Morrison's low-down past proves what some Republicans have been suggesting from the beginning: She's a Mata Hari who used her feminine wiles to lure the innocent senator into sin and ruination. Maybe Stanley should consider himself lucky. At least he wasn't whacked upside the head with a hammer.
Which is it? Who knows? We report, you decide. Here in the Legislative Plaza this morning, observers can't make up their minds who to blame anymore. How about both of them? It could have been a case of two pirate ships passing in the night. One thing is certain (as the TV reporters are fond of saying when they can't come up with a catchy way to end their reports) Stanley is toast either way. Where's that resignation letter anyway?
In case you were wondering, Morrison isn't under TBI investigation in the Stanley blackmailing. "No, she is not under investigation at this time unless new information comes to light. During the course of the investigation, she was questioned and not charged," TBI spokeswoman Kristin Helm says.
