What Do YOU Think She Said? In Florida, This Latina Legislative Aide Is Under Fire For Cursing At A Chairman

A legislative aide in Tampa, Florida is under investigation for maybe, possibly calling the city council chairman an “asshole” during a meeting.

Last Thursday, Carrie Henriquez was caught on camera walking behind Chairman Luis Viera, who is her boss’s rival on the council, either coughing or whispering expletives before leaving the room.

In the clip, Viera, stunned, turns around to look at Guido Maniscalco, Henriquez’s boss.

“Did she just say something,” Viera asks Maniscalco.

At first, Maniscalco believed his aide might have indeed bad-mouthed his colleague. He confronted her after the meeting, where Henriquez denied any cursing.

“She looked at me like I was crazy,” Maniscalco told the Daily Mail.

Maniscalco now believes his staffer, saying that it’s common to mishear people. An example: musical lyrics.

“’Hold me closer, Tony Danza.’ I’ve heard that song hundreds of times and I still misunderstood it,” he said. “There’s several Beatles songs like that, too. I believe her. Sometimes we hear a song and we think we know the lyrics.”

For her part, Henriquez has also publicly denied Viera’s claims.

‘I can be salty sometimes, but I would never do anything to jeopardize the council member’s (Maniscalco’s) reputation or my husband’s good name,’ Henriquez, who is married to Hillsborough County Property Appraiser Bob Henriquez, said.

According to the staffer, she didn’t say any word at all. Instead, she just erupted in a series of coughs and sneezes and walked out of the meeting room to avoid causing a distraction.

Viera, however, remains unconvinced. There are rumors Henriquez is under investigation, but it’s still unclear.

“If the City were investigating such a matter, we would not comment nor would there be any public records to release during an active investigation,” the city’s Human Resources director said.

AOC Gets Under Ted Cruz’s Skin With Crack About His Mexican Getaway After He Accuses Her Of Pushing For ‘open borders’

AOC Gets Under Ted Cruz’s Skin With Crack About His Mexican Getaway After He Accuses Her Of Pushing For ‘open borders’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ted Cruz are at it again on Twitter. This time it’s about immigration policy. After recently traveling to the US-Mexican border to underline the recent rise in immigration, Cruz accused AOC of pushing for a “full open borders” policy.

And of course, AOC got him with some solid zingers.

AOC in turn hit back at Cruz for recently fleeing his home state of Texas during its power grid collapse to vacation in Cancún.

In response to Cruz’s attack, AOC suggested Mexico avoid allowing Cruz in the next time he attempts to vacation there. She also called on him to resign from office for his attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“Ted, this is pretty rich coming from someone who fled their own home (and responsibilities) during an environmental crisis to cross the border and seek refuge in Mexico,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “Also you funded cages, expanded cages, and yet you’re complaining about cages. You have no policy, just puff.”

Ocasio-Cortez accused Republicans of hypocritically attacking the current administration’s detention of migrant children at the border after they supported President Donald Trump’s policy of separating migrant parents from their children.

Currently, Democrats like AOC are calling on Biden to impliment more liberal immigration policies.

Republicans have strongly expressed their dislike for the recent rise in migrants which has come as a result of Biden’s reversal of Trump’s most rigid border policies.

AOC is currently a co-sponsor of the Roadmap to Freedom resolution. The resolution calls on the Federal Government to develop and implement a Roadmap to Freedom “in order to overhaul the outdated immigration system in the United States that has gone without significant reform for decades, and to relieve the great human impact an unjust system bears on communities around the country.”

Naked Woman Is Stuck In Storm Drain For Weeks But How She Got There Is Even More Strange

Naked Woman Is Stuck In Storm Drain For Weeks But How She Got There Is Even More Strange

Rescuers are still scratching their heads after helping a woman out of a storm drain, where she had allegedly been trapped for weeks. Although her family is glad that the woman has been rescued, they have more questions than answers about the woman’s past few weeks.

Woman is rescued from storm drain after being missing for three weeks.

A 43-year-old woman who had been missing for three weeks was rescued Tuesday after she was found trapped inside a storm drain just a few feet away from a busy street in the Florida city of Delray Beach. She was naked and unable to stand on her own.

The bizarre rescue began when a good Samaritan heard yelling coming from a drain and called 911, according to Delray Beach Fire Rescue. How she ended up in the drain is even more unusual:

The woman told officers she went for a swim in a canal near her boyfriend’s home in West Delray Beach on March 3, according to Delray Beach police.

“While she was swimming, she came across a doorway near a shallow part of the canal. She stated she entered the doorway and noticed a tunnel,” reads the March 23 incident report. According to the report, she became curious and began walking down the tunnel, which led to another tunnel and so on until she became lost.

Thanks to the good Samaritan, the woman is now recovering.

If it weren’t for the compassion of one bystander, the woman could still be trapped. “There’s a lady stuck in a sewer, yes ma’am, she cannot get out. She’s screaming for help … she don’t have no clothes,” a woman told the 911 operator, according to a recording of the call the Miami Herald obtained through a public record request. The woman told the operator she was in her car, with her windows down, when she heard the screams.

The woman will now undergo a mental assessment. Her mother told police she has a history of mental illness and is known for “doing odd things and making bad decisions when she is high on drugs,” according to the report. Police said she is a Methadone patient and that her last dose was the day prior to her disappearance.

Her boyfriend had reported her missing three weeks before her rescue.

The woman had been reported missing by her boyfriend on March 3, after 9 p.m., when he spoke to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.

Police say they don’t know how long the woman was in the tunnels. The woman claims she was walking in the tunnels, lost, for about three weeks until she “saw some light” and decided to sit there because she saw people walking by, according to the report. It’s unclear how long it took for someone to notice her.
