She can blame the media until she turns blue — but Rachel Noerdlinger is responsible for thrusting her own teenage son into the spotlight.
How did we, the media, learn her son’s name? It wasn’t during some anti-progressive witch hunt. It was when the duplicitous Noerdlinger named him in an application for a residency waiver, spinning a tale about how the teen — so strapping and healthy that he was playing high-school football at the time — was hobbled by a pair of car accidents and needed to be near his doctors.
Before that, not a clue about the kid.
And when it comes to putting children in the cross hairs, the mayor is far from blameless. He prostituted his own family in campaign TV commercials.
