Woman Who Ran Over and Killed Mother of Four Mulling Run Against Mitch McConnell

Frankly, the Kentucky Democrats would probably fare better if they fielded no candidate at all. Really, they’re considering someone who ran over and killed a mother of four? Are they serious?

Heather French Henry, a 2000 Miss America titleholder and wife of former Kentucky Lt. Gov. Steve Henry (D), is contemplating launching a challenge to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and has been contacted by officeholders in the state urging her to run.

“I’m not saying no yet, but I’m not saying yes,” she told The Hill on Tuesday.

French Henry said that she is interested in a run for office, but hasn’t yet decided if 2014 is the right race.”I certainly see myself, in the future, in some sort of political office,” she said. But French Henry said she is being “urged” to consider the race “by people in higher political positions” in the state, and added that “there’s not a day that goes by that someone doesn’t mention it.”

Really deep bench they’ve got there. Just a few minor problems with Henry’s possible candidacy:

In 2003, French Henry struck and killed a mother of four in a 2003 car accident as the woman was crossing the street on a bicycle. She later went on to discuss the emotional toll the accident took on her, including an appearance on the Oprah Winfrey show. There were no charges laid.

Her husband faced numerous controversies that could be used against French Henry if she decides to run.

Steve Henry was accused of violating state campaign laws during his gubernatorial campaign and ultimately made an Alford plea, in which a defendant maintains their innocence but admits there’s enough evidence to convict, and paid multiple fines.

French Henry said, however, that she had discussed her interest with her husband, and “he’s neither here nor there” on the run.

Looking forward, she said that she had no timeline on a decision. Asked what could convince her to run, French Henry balked.

“Other than someone to clean my house for me?” she joked. “I don’t know — God would have to make it very evident to me, like a frying pan to the head, and say, ‘Heather, you need to run.'”

Time for a second look at Ashley Judd?

    “I don’t know — God would have to make it very evident to me, like a frying pan to the head, and say, ‘Heather, you need to run.’”

    Or like a car running over you while you’re out for a bike ride, and say, “Heather, you need to run – get out of the street!”?

    Until she married the corrupt former Lt. Governor, she told whoever would listen how proud she was to be a Republican. She claimed she switched parties because, get this, Democrats care more about veterans. Hahahaha, yeah, sure they do Heather, sure they do.

    Was she married to the Lt. Gov. when she ran over the woman? Could that possibly be why no charges were filed?

    Why is it with Libidiots they are always are so concerned for their own emotional stability, not the dead lady… Conservatives should take heed. These freaks have no morals which makes fighting a War using morals as the weapon makes NO sense…
