She Kept Her Mouth Shut Award

El Paso County Commissioner Betty Beedy

Betty, we hardly knew ya this year. Last year was so fun, with you calling divorced women with boyfriends sluts whose ex-husbands shouldn't have to pay child support for the children they fathered. Remember, too, how you made a national spectacle of yourself (and us) by going on national television and implying only white people are normal? You've been so quiet this year, choosing only to cut your razorsharp tongue on your colleagues who dared to approve a responsible zoning plan. Could it be that you've learned your lesson and amended your bizarre beliefs? Or is your silence due to the fact you're up for re-election next year and you need the $50,000 a year job (plus hefty expense accounts and cushy perks) that you get from the taxpayers? (CD)
