‘She Swears She’s Not Romantically Involved With Her New Friend’

Posted on | October 22, 2011 | 30 Comments

Not the kind of sentence a Florida banker wants to read in a story about his wife’s trip to New York:

A married mother of four from Florida ditched her family to become part of the raggedy mob in Zuccotti Park — keeping the park clean by day and keeping herself warm at night with the help of a young waiter from Brooklyn.
“I’m not planning on going home,” an unapologetic Stacey Hessler, 38, told The Post yesterday.
“I have no idea what the future holds, but I’m here indefinitely. Forever,” said Hessler, whose home in DeLand sits 911 miles from the tarp she’s been sleeping under.
Hessler — who ironically is married to a banker — arrived 12 days ago and planned to stay for a week, but changed her plans after cozying up to some like-minded radicals, including Rami Shamir, 30, a waiter at a French bistro in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn.
She swears she’s not romantically involved with her new friend.

I say we take her word for it. Because bankers’ wives who display a personal hatred of capitalism are completely trustworthy.

    Yeah, right, the operative weasel phrase here is “not ROMANTICALLY linked”, and it wouldn’t surprise me if this bitch hasn’t been passed around at least three or four times. She also has either 3 or 4 teenage children, one boy the rest girls.

    This is right up there with the eleven year old boy drunk and puking on the courthouse yard in Missoula Montana.

    We think of this as a bad thing, but her family might be enjoying the time spent away from mom.

    It is charitable to call rutting in a tent (after a week of no showers) romantic.

    1. This woman is a nutbag. JammieWearing fool has more on her via her neighbors.
    2. She’s obviously using OWS as an excuse for a mid-life crisis.
    3. Why not occupy more locally? She has to go to NYC to where her lover is of course!
    4. GO HOME HIPPIES. We’re so tired of you.

    This broad strikes me as the sort that was poorly miseducated and never questioned the nonsense taught in schools and then she accepted every bit of garbage the mainstream media sent her way and she rounded out her political viewpoint by watching the View.  Likely she nodded her head every time Cindy Sheehan was quoted during the Bush admin.

    I usually think divorce is a bad idea. However, her husband needs to strongly consider that option. Beyond that, he needs to freeze all accounts that she has access to before her new “friends” convince her that it is only fair for her to share their riches. Won’t be long before some in that crowd realize she (and her husband’s credit) is target worthy.

    At least she could have had the courtesy of changing her name to something new-ageish like Moonshine or Peacefist or some other inane name that does not immediately identify her as being connected to real people.

    Being a banker with at least three teenage children to raise, I’m sure he’s already taken steps to protect his account, although if they have a joint account, it might be a little bit more complicated and might even require a court hearing. It depends on how the account is set up. As for him divorcing him, I would certainly do that, but you never can tell what people will do when they are in that situation. There might be some mental or medical issues at work here.

    With joint accounts either party has the ability to drain it, I’m thinking the banker got there furstist, leaving with the mostest.
    There is no way for us to know, but I doubt this woman suddenly had an attack of “social consciousness” without any prior indications of discontent.

    The banker is very lucky.

    1) Obviously the woman is a slut.
    2) Hre open behaviour demands divorce reguardless of the banker love.
    3) He will be awarded the kids & her visits may be severely limited.
    4) Probably no alimony or very limited

    Some destasterous events are real blessings.

    I predict she’ll last until she passes by a department store window and sees the shoes.  Then it’ll dawn on her she can’t have any of that anymore…..

    In other news: Leon at RedState has completely reversed his previous position and is now convinced that Herman Cain is solidly pro-life.  Amusingly there’s still a number of commenters there grousing about Cain’s interview, still saying that Cain’s not pro-life enough for them, when Leon is the most committed pro-life person I know and he’s fine with Herman Cain on that subject now.

    I think her kids are probably devastated by this.

    I know a woman who ran away with a cop, who pulled her over for speeding, a week after she met him.  Fifteen years later, she says she’s happy, but the family she abandoned is still in shambles.   

    It’s a horrible thing to do to your children.

    With four kids and a husband, Daddy’s Little Princess was no longer the Center of the Universe and she finally snapped.

    Having read the details, watched the tapes, etc, I can agree that this was manufactured as a wedge. Cain is one of the top choices.

    But what does that have to do with a chipee from FL with round-heels? At 38 the possibility she’ll require an abortion is statistically small.

    Silmarillion, huh?

    Point of perspective:

    Her loopy tendencies have probably been apparent for a very long time–this kind of insanity does not just suddenly appear overnight.    Who marries this kind of  woman?  Probably a fellow leftist.  Furthermore, if her husband is a banker, statistically there’s a good chance he’s an Obama supporter.  If so, there is some real schadenfreude here. 

    A pity about the kids.  This will probably screw them up irreparably.  That is, if Patchouli-Mom hasn’t already screwed them up beyond redemption by herself.  One suspects they’ve been getting indoctrinated for years, already.  Some of them may even try to join dear ol’ mom.

    And if my assumptions are wrong, her husband and kids are probably not so much devastated as relieved that Mommy Wack-Job is gone.

    Given the comments of her neighbors I wonder how she goes back. Even if her husband is cool with this and would take her back (love is blind but it doesn’t have to be stupid) he’s got to be extremely embarrassed already and reuniting with her would certainly make him a complete laughing stock.
