Ma’am Talks Regularly with Woman Who Killed her Husband?!?!
UPDATED: Boxer’s Office Says Woman Has Not Spoken With Her

Welcome Instapundit Readers!!

Wonder how many media outlets in the Golden State will investigate this story.

In the latest video taken by James O’Keefe, the freelance investigative reporter posting as a pimp as he seeks housing assistance at various ACORN offices, he talks with Tresa Kaelke in the organization’s San Bernardino, California office.  Ms. Kaelke not only boasts of killing her husband, but also of talking regularly to our state’s junior Senator, Ma’am Barbara Boxer.

Look, I doubt this Ms. Kaelke actually talks with Ma’am on a regular basis (indeed wonder if she ever has).  She is likely just boasting of her access to enhance her statute.

That said, you can bet if the official of a corrupt right-wing organization with extensive ties to the GOP and to a Republican President had made such a claim, various media oulets would immediately launch an investigation.  So, I ask our Golden State readers who follow local media to alert me should they see any followups to this exposé.

(NB Edited post since initially publication to improve flow.)

UPDATE:  I just spoke with someone in Ma’am’s Los Angeles office who was unaware of the story.  He also said there is “no record” of California’s junior Senator holding any townhall meetings.  He suggested I call Mrs. Boxer’s Washington press office where I asked them if Ms. Kaelke’s contention (of regular contact with Ma’am) was accurate.  They promised to get back to me.  I’ll let you know as soon as I get a response.

FROM THE COMMENTS: Leah, who called Ma’am’s LA office after I did, got a response I didn’t get:

Initially I was told by the very nice guy who answered the phone that they have no comment on this. But I should know that ma’am Boxer voted against funding Acorn in the senate.

Seems our calls are having an effect.

FROM THE COMMENTS #2: Seems Ms. Kaelke wasn’t boasting about her ties with California State Senator Gloria Negrete McLeod .  So, perhaps I was too hasty in questioning her credibility.

UP-UPDATE:  Just received this from Natalie Ravitz, Senior Advisor to Mrs. Boxer:

I got your message regarding this tape of the ACORN worker “Teresa”:   Not only has this woman never talked to Senator Boxer, but we’ve checked with our staff here in Washington and in each of our California offices, and no one has ever heard of her or spoken to her.

  1. Just called ma’am Boxers’ LA office. Initially I was told by the very nice guy who answered the phone that they have no comment on this. But I should know that ma’am Boxer voted against funding Acorn in the senate.

    I also told him I am very upset that a murderer who is a tax cheat can get through to the senator, but us tax paying citizens can’t even get a town hall meeting. (you need to see the video, the acorn worker admits to murdering her ex and is busy helping this young couple set up a brothel where the girls will be abused if it means more money)

    Poor guy, but I do hope he gets many phone calls like this. This will shake them up.

  2. keep checking, she DID meet with the state rep according to an ACORN blog report of the meeting:
    see here http://wp.me/pnjeY-3vU

    Friday July 10, 2009

    Members Michael and Dennis of the San Bernardino ACORN along with Tresa Kaelke (San Bernardino ACORN Community Organizer) and Christina Spach (California Field Corrdinator); attended the schedule meeting with California State Senator Gloria Negrete McLeod of District 32.

    The topics of discussion:

    AB377 (prevent pay day loan increases). Currently pay day loan companies are trying to increase the lending rate in the state of California from $300.00 to $500.00 per pay day loan. At this time the interest rate paid is $15.00 per $100.00 borrowed. Michael discussed the dangers of such increases. The Senator believes the bill would die before it even gets to get desk for consideration.

    AB260 (prevent predatory mortgage lending). This bill is designed to add stiffer consequences to bad mortgage lending. Dennis discussed this bill with the Senator. The Senator was moved by the personal story that Dennis shared. The Senator requested more information on this bill.

    Michael brought to the discussion floor SB 1137 which has been in law for almost 1 year. SB 1137 requires the lenders/bank to carry out certain procedures before a foreclosure could move forward. Michael informed the Senator that one major problem with this bill is that the mediation is not being carried out in the benefit of the homeowner. Michael shared experiences from attorney’s who could not receive a ruling in court from SB 1137. The problem is that the judges have stated that mediation is not defined clearly and thus the steps the lender/banks are taking are sufficient and that SB 1137 lacks teeth to enforce steeper mediation requirements. The Senator asked the ACORN attendees to help her focus on that issue brought up by Michael and move quickly to draft a bill to for mediation and the mandated steps that should be taken to give SB 1137 teeth.

    In conclusion, the meeting was success and we are looking forward in working with Senator McLeod in enhancing SB 1137. Thanks to Dennis, Michael, Tresa and Christina we are making steps in protecting homeowners.

  5. How about this link http://biggovernment.com/2009/09/15/charlie-gibson-on-acorn-scandal-i-dont-even-know-about-it/ Charlie Gibson says he don’t know about the scandal. My my my, another example of so called MSM not knowing nothing.

    Charlie Gibson: “(laugh) I don’t even know about it. Uh, so you got me at a loss, I don’t know. Uh, uh, but, but My goodness if it’s got everything including sleaziness in it we should talk about it this morning.”

  7. Tano will be along as soon as he gets his talking points on this.

    If he’s smart, he’ll wait for the check to clear.

  9. The story about her shooting her husband is the one I want to know more about. Did it really happen? Was it investigated by the police? What did they do about it?

  10. Funny, I still can’t get a straight answer from Ma’am regarding her last visit to her San Diego offices. They claimed it has been 2 years. 4 letters & e-mails, direct calls placed to her Chief of Staff & no-one can say when Ma’am last went to her publicly funded offices. Funny, I can tell you that she was on a book signing tour instead of holding any public forums on Healthcare reform. Can’t wait until someone sets up to run against her. I will volunteer time & money!

  16. “access to enhance her statute” should read >>access to enhance her stature<<

    Stature not statute.

  22. The excuse offered by Ms. Kaelke is that she knew what was up and decided to play silly.

  23. I love this video! So few people believe that she was just playing the filmmakers for fools and the truth is she was! It’s obvious when you watch the video already knowing that she is messing with them, particularly towards the end when she talks about wads of cash – she was always willing to stretch their credulity another step – and yet nobody believes it. it’s nice to see satire isn’t dead =)

    thanks for the link to the video!
