Suzi Schmidt (R-IL) – ‘GOP Moron of the Day’

Via: Daily Herald

Editor’s note: The 911 audio tapes have been edited to remove personal  identification information.

State Sen. Suzi Schmidt mentioned being a former Lake County Board chairman  and her “connections” on a December call asking a 911 dispatcher to ignore her  husband if he summoned help, according to a recording released Wednesday.


Monday’s call was the THIRD sheriff’s response to the couple’s Lake Villa  Township house since Dec. 25, 2010. Authorities also didn’t seek criminal  charges based on the domestic violence complaints from last December or Aug.  16.

Robert Schmidt declined to comment. Suzi Schmidt didn’t return calls, but  issued a statement late Wednesday afternoon that, in part, addressed the use of  her political status on the 911 recordings.

“On the 911 call, I identified myself — but I NEVER intended to  inappropriately use my title. However, I apologize if any of my comments during  this very emotional time seem inappropriate,” she said.

Suzi Schmidt, elected to a 2-year state senate term in 2010, called a 911  dispatcher at 9:55 a.m. Dec. 25 because she believed her husband soon would be  doing the same.

“Hi Allison, this is Suzi Schmidt. {Did I mention?}, I was the Lake County Board chairman for  10 years,” she said on the 911 recording obtained through a Freedom of  Information Act request. “Listen, I’m having a little problem with my husband  right now.”

“Like a domestic-type problem?” the dispatcher inquired.

Suzi Schmidt said all was fine at the home (outside the front door, not  so good), then provided some detail on what  she wanted from the 911 dispatcher.

“If he calls, Bob Schmidt, you can ignore him.

Of COURSE, I just caught him with another woman, so that’s why I’m a little upset,” she said.

Suzi Schmidt, 60, said she locked out her husband on that frigid Christmas Day and that’s why he might try to seek help from police.

“He might (call), except he’s kind of afraid of me because he knows I have connections,” she told the emergency dispatcher.
