Just Talked With the Judge About Miss Mae


RE: Mea Magouirk


Case WAS settled Monday--

ALL parties agreed on the following.

Three doctors were picked and approved by BOTH PARTIES!

If 2 of the 3 found that Miss Mae could be moved to Emory or Birmingham with a DECENT chance of surivival then this would happen- and that the grandaughter would remain as guardian.

The Doctors had a phone conference Monday night at about 6:00 pm.

What was decided- the judge does not know--

SO please do NOT bug the judge!

NOw- I am still working on finding out what DID HAPPEN!

I will keep you posted!!!


  • Sherri, when you know more, could you please post a comment on my entry on Blogs For Terri (the one that links to the media outlets' emails), so those readers can stay updated. I posted it, but am not able to keep up with the story as well as I would like today. Names and numbers of people to call, any sort of potentially effective action we can take, that will be much appreciated. Thanks for staying on top of it.

  • Sherri,

    I am trying to move this issue out of the existing arena and create a new arena, and you can see why now, I think. But I need help to get people moving on it. It would be a different form from shelters for battered women and children, but with the same objective. See my comment under this article in Blogs.

  • Good work Sherri. Something doesn't add up with this.
    To anonymous - wouldn't it help if you just let people know what you are saying here. I'm sitting on this right now because the info is conflicting.
    I'll wait for updates.

  • Here is the story by WorldNetDaily. Not as quick as Sherri, but it does confirm the story.

  • Something doesn't add up with this...

    Here is a part of the story I would like to hear more about - who is this nephew, Ken Mullinax?

    That is not a common name. However, there is a Ken Mullinax who did press relations for a Dem Congressman (Hilliard), and then was press spokesperson for Dem challenger Bill Fuller in the 2004 Congressional race (Fuller fought Rogers, but Rogers won).

    The district fits, geographically - Fuller lives near Birmingham, and LaGrange, GA.

    And Fuller's address is relevant because, a week before the election, his home (which doubled as campaign HQ) caught fire. I can not find a follow-up report, and the police did not see anything immediately suspicious, but local Dems suspected foul play and used the phrase "hate crime".

    So, my questions for Mr. Mullinax -

    (1) Are you the same fellow? (I have been advised that, if I listen to the 16 minute Glen Beck interview, Mullinax will identify himself as an aide who works in Washington).

    (2) If yes, then you have a broad press relations background. What national or state reporters have you contacted on this story? What Democratic leaders (Washington or Alabama) have you contacted? What legislators (state or national) have put our press releases calling attention to this on your behalf?

    (3) Was there any resolution to the home fire last October involving Bill Fuller? Did you then, and do you now suspect foul play involving Republicans or right wing fringe groups? Was there anything in the campaign or your candidate's positions that might have made him a target of extreme groups?

    On the off chance that my point is *not* obvious, let's just say that, if he really is a Dem press relations guy who thinks he was the victim of a potentially lethal dirty trick by right wing wackos, it seems odd that he is now relying on right wing groups to put his story out.

    The fact that this episode began over April Fool's weekend is just a bonus.

    Anyway, this should be easy to check by anyone in contact with him. And he may be a Dem who loves his aunt, and is worried about her, just as he says.

    Trust, but verify.

  • Notwithstanding, our responsibility as moral agents to seek the truth, trust and verify before acting is fine if you are about to disarm. But when it comes to fighting to save a life, err on the side of life proves a better battle standard.

    After all, the victim may well be dead before you've been able to verify the crime. I'd rather be embarassed on occasion than fatally negligent.

    Call it a corollary to: It is easier to apologize than to ask permission, if you will.

    Pray and act for Mae!
