Some of you have taken issue with my recent posts about Rep. Kerry Burt and Courtney Greene. For the record, I have not once said that the two are having an affair, I have only questioned the coziness of the relationship and wondered why he wouldn’t call the woman who he and his kids live with instead of an old college friend. I don’t know many wives or significant others who would be cool with their man calling some other chick when arrested at 2 a.m. on a Tuesday morning.
Anyway, since some of you are disturbed by all of that, I’ll focus my attention somewhere else today.
Governor Culver is working overtime to distance himself from Rep. Burt. Culver said he attended the reception and had dinner with Burt and other legislators that night but was home by 9 p.m. that night. I believe Culver, and if I were him I would be extremely pissed off about Burt’s actions that night.
This is why you have to understand that Rep. Burt is used to special treatment. I imagine that if the All-American football star got into a little trouble in Iowa City during the late 80’s and early 90’s, he just needed to drop Hayden Fry’s name, and law enforcement would look the other way. That’s all Burt was doing when he got busted in February.
However there is something that I want to know that nobody is talking about. I want to know who he was drinking with from 9 p.m. that night till when he got busted. I also would like to know if all of his drinking activity took place at the Embassy Suites or if he visited another establishment.
I ask these questions because I think it’s safe to say that other legislators were with him for most of the night. Now, I’m not trying to insinuate that they are to blame for what happened with Rep. Burt that night, but how do you let someone that drunk get behind the wheel. So, who was with Rep. Burt that night? It’s not like the freshman legislator was out on the town all by himself.
On another Burt related topic…
Am I the only one who thinks that Rep. Burt’s attorney spends more time defending Governor Culver than defending his client. Weird.
