I am curious how a woman convicted of child endangerment and contributing to the delinquency of a minor who was witnessed giving alcohol to minors at her home a couple of years ago, could be allowed to run for government office

I do not think so!!!!!!!!!!
This so called person wants to run for office, NO WAY!!!!!!!!!!
Being the most loving or not, This woman might or might not be honest about her personal background.
I am a tax paying person... I would demand a lie dector test and a drug test for this person before I would even let her run for office.
Our childrem are a reflection of us [ being the parents of tomorrow's adults] wouldn't you the TAX payers want our City Officers be honest about things. So let us the tax payers demand a lie dector test and a drug test for our city officals!!!!!!!!!

This is so far fetched. whomever you are living in another county passing judgment without the facts. If she is so honest ask her to take a lie detector test....knowing her and her family and all the chidren she mentored she would pass.(both) What have you done lately for your community

It all boils down to he said she said. That girl has more gutts than the rest of them. Do you have any idea why she was running for that position. If so lets see if you have the facts

This is so great! Deborah Cole-Easley (as noted on her business card) stated she was in the witness protection program to me. Why on earth would she be running for office. Don't you want to be rather low key for that? It was nice finding the article on her. It indeed gave me reassurance as to my own suspicions about this woman. I would say they were correct. A wolf in sheep's clothing.

You all sound like a bunch of southern fried hicks. Grow up people. Who in the hell would even think suggesting taking a lie detector test to run for public office would remotely look intelligent? And people wonder why the south gets talked down so badly

Who even cares? A lie detector test isn't going to tell anyone anything anyway. They are not admissible in court for a reason. They are unreliable. Who in the hell would want this woman running for any public office. Read the article.

"She was arrested in January and April after her fianc's death, once for driving under the influence and another time for contributing to the delinquency of minors."

Not to mention the fact she doesn't even have her facts straight. She's naming names and people haven't even spoken to her. I can't image what kind of reputation the company she is supposed to be running has.

"But the coroner's office records show it was not Smedley, a former paramedic, who handled the case. "I don't even know what she's talking about," he said."

"Cole didn't mention her arrests until asked by the Voice. The police report said she drove her Honda SUV through the stop sign at DeSoto and Calella and was stopped at the Townhouse Center. "Mrs. Cole had slurred speech and impaired motor control," the report said.

"I had two glasses of wine with a chicken salad," she said. But a breath test at the Garland County Sheriff's Office indicated a blood alcohol level of 0.230, well above the .08 level considered to be driving under the influence.

"But Cole, who told officers she was an employee of the Property Owner's Association, was charged with eight counts of contributing to the delinquency of minors for supplying them with liquor. She pleaded no contest."

Read it. It's all I need to see to know how I would vote and I don't need a lie dectector test. Opportunist!

Serioiusly, read the article.

"When police continued to keep her under observation, said Cole, she complained to other law-enforcement agencies but was told they had no jurisdiction in the matter. She named Saline County Sheriff Phil Mask as one of those she had talked to. "She is mistaken. She has not spoken to me. I've never heard of Deborah Cole," Mask told the Voice."

She sounds like a real winner!!

It's very simple. As long as she's not a felon she can run for office. If she has a past you don't like then don't vote for her.

I personally know her and her daughter and anyone else that does too knows that ABSOLUTELY, UNEQUIVOCALLY, NO QUESTIONS ASKED, NO DOUBTS both those bitches are CRAZY. And if you haven't known them that long, just wait, they'll show you. According to her shes been in the witness protection, lived with a major kingpin in a drug cartel, John Cooper hired people to inject her fiancee with enough drugs to od and then they made it look like he did it to himself and thats just the tip of the iceburg. I was one of those minors and yes she smoked pot WITH us, gave us alcohol and pain pills, and let teens have sex in her DAUGHTERS bed as long as we washed the sheets afterword. Sounds like such a good "mentor" right? So y'all can act like you know her all you want but you don't know shit. I was there, I lived it. So there's your truth for you.
