Pirro Web Site Has No Photos of Husband
Jeanine Pirro's campaign Web site announcing her bid to challenge Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton features more than 100 photos -- none of which include her husband.
There's Pirro with singer Tony Bennett and the late actor Ossie Davis; with Republican Govs. George Pataki of New York and Arnold Schwarzenegger of California; and with Democrats including Bobby Kennedy Jr. and the Rev. Al Sharpton. There's even one of Pirro with a monkey.
But none shows the Westchester County district attorney with her husband, Albert, a lawyer-lobbyist who spent 11 months in federal prison on a tax fraud conviction....
Albert Pirro also isn't mentioned in his wife's biography posted on the Web site....
Clinton's campaign Web site, http://www.hillaryclinton.com, offers an album of 15 slides, nine of them with her husband, former President Bill Clinton....
Pirro was re-elected district attorney in 2001 while her husband was in prison on the tax fraud conviction, and he has been an issue in most of her campaigns.
In 1997, he was fighting a paternity suit, which was ultimately successful. In 1986, he refused to release information about his law practice and she had to withdraw as the GOP candidate for lieutenant governor....
Oddly, the New York Post's version of this story is even nastier (read it here via Yahoo News.) Back in May I posted some of the juicy stuff that's been written about Al over the years; that post is here.
UPDATE: Lucianne.com feeds the haters by responding to the headline "Clinton challenger Pirro's Web site has no photos of husband" with
Big deal...neither does Hillary's
Which is a lie. Here's Hillary's. Click on "Photo Album" and see the Bill photos for yourself.
