Southampton Town Supervisor Kabot, attorney give first interview on DWI arrest

Sam, the tube ISN'T a moot point - if she were sober she could have blown into it, as thousands of people have done, and resolved everything right there.

Oh, I forgot - the democrats spiked her drink at the party... and paid the cops to follow her... Cause cops love the democrats so much." Sep 23, 09 2:04 PM


The cops in Westampton are indeed obsessed: with coffee and donuts. Even if we believe in your "oppressive cop" theory, the fact remains that if Kabot REALLY was sober, she could have put this entire matter to rest by taking the test. That so-called "inane test" would have proved conclusively that there was no alcohol in her system.

Or wait. Maybe she was secretly injected with rubbing alcohol at her little party... or maybe she used Anbesol on a toothache, like that woman who killed 8 people driving the wrong way on the Taconic!

All of Kabot's excuses and explanations require huge leaps of faith and wild conspiracy theories... while the simplest explanation is painfully obvious to all but you.

Maybe you wouldn't see this as "police oppression" if your family were run over by a drunk driver.

" Sep 23, 09 4:00 PM

hatred? What is hateful about asking why a public official - a supposed role model - is out driving drunk? And what is so evil about questioning why that public official who claims total innocence refused to take a simple test to clear her name right there on the spot.

wake up. Drunk driving is serious. it's not about politics it's about a leader possibly endangering the very community she is supposed to protect." Sep 24, 09 9:48 AM

of course! Thats it! The cops had it in for her and are editing the video as we speak! Why stop there? Maybe cops followed her to her party and slipped her drugs! And maybe they painted those yellow lines improperly so Linda would swerve over them?

It's all a conspiracy! Sure, that's it!" Sep 24, 09 9:52 AM

ah yes... now it's the breathalyzer's fault! a test that has been given millions of times around the country... proven valid in thousands of cases... but no, we all have it wrong and you know more about the test than the entire world.

Definitely another drunk driver who got caught." Sep 24, 09 9:57 AM

Wow. If it's true - that Linda Kabot actually had a family member killed by a drunk driver - then this takes her arrogance to incredible levels." Sep 24, 09 11:36 AM

Southampton Town Supervisor Kabot, attorney give first interview on DWI arrest

treewoman: the police DO stop innocent people all the time. And in this and every DWI case, the accused had a chance to prove her innocence right there on the spot: she could have taken a breathalyzer. She chose not to - and now blames everyone and their mother for the mess she made for herself.

She didn't lose my vote because of DWI, she lost it because she has a pathological problem with EVER admitting even the slightest mistake or error... as in our budget mess, which she was a part of for years." Sep 25, 09 9:57 PM

tree woman, of course no one has an obligation prove their innocence. But in DWI cases there's a rare opportunity to do so quickly and easily - the breathalyzer - which she chose not to take.

Reasonable people who haven't been drinking would take this test in a heartbeat. I've done it once and never felt like my rights were violated. In fact I was grateful for the chance to save time and money fighting a DWI charge when I knew I wasn't drinking.

Instead of a reasonable explanation for the events in question, you and others look for the most outlandish one: that the police have ATH's phone number on speed dial, called her at midnight, and got some kind of "order" to proceed.

Inhale!" Sep 26, 09 7:03 AM

Fire crews respond to natural gas leak in Westhampton Beach

it was all part of a police conspiracy to frame Kabot." Sep 28, 09 12:49 PM

Attorney: Linda Kabot will be vindicated

totally agree! Elected officials who spend years in government and end up "losing" millions of our dollars on their watch should step down! so should so-called "leaders" who get popped for DWI and then blame everyone under the sun... except herself!" Sep 30, 09 11:31 AM

you're right! Clinton's "diversion" was doing things like passing laws... running the country... and leaving office with a massive surplus. Of course, a few little wars and billions of tax cuts have pissed it all away. but hey we have a black socialist president now, he's good for diversions!" Sep 30, 09 11:32 AM

why do you even waste time trying to get these nimrods to understand this?" Sep 30, 09 11:40 AM

um, excuse me, but wouldn't anonymous letters alleging criminal conspiracy also be considered libelous? You can't have it both ways.

Kabot didn't have to take the test... but it was a fast, free, simple way to prove innocence beyond a reasonable doubt. and she didn't do it. Now her lawyer is breaking every ethical rule in the book (see rules posted above) in an effort to (surprise!) taint the jury pool and blame others.

Meanwhile our missing money is nowhere close to being found." Sep 30, 09 11:46 AM

Linda Kabot's DWI case expected to be moved to Riverhead Town Court

Oh... well if Rip Torn wasn't guilty than neither is Linda!" Oct 1, 09 12:10 PM

I saw Professor Mustard, in the cloak room, with a candlestick in his hand! he did it!

the so-called "damning pics" of Kabot were supplied by her attorney - who broke every ethical rule in the book by raising his baseless conspiracy theories." Oct 1, 09 12:12 PM

Well, if ATH needs to answer a question then maybe Linda does too: such as, why didn't you take a breathalyzer test if you were sober?


Those are some real questions. deal with it" Oct 1, 09 12:15 PM

Linda Kabot's DWI case expected to be moved to Riverhead Town Court

tell that one to the parents of the boy who was run over in hampton bays.

Amazing how everyone wants to get "tough on crime".. until that means inconveniently charging their favorite politician with DWI." Oct 1, 09 8:50 PM

Are you people insane? A guy on here points out how wrong it is for a newspaper to print an anonymous letter, with completely unsubstantiated, third-hand allegations, admittedly without any idea of who the source is, or whether there's any legitimacy to it. And the best you can do is accuse HIM of being a disgruntled former employee with an axe to grind?

And what do you base that on? His memory and knowledge of Kabot's multiple failings? Enjoy yourselves why you pay more taxes thanks to her incredible bungling of the budget." Oct 1, 09 9:02 PM

Southampton Town deputy supervisor confronts, shoves PBA president over comments about budget

OK people put politics and conspiracy theories aside for a minute and look at the facts:

* huge budget gap with Keystone Kop accountants and no resolution in sight
* DWI bust for the elected town leader who is supposed to be a role model
* Physical altercation involving the supervisor's appointed deputy
* Etc etc.

Regardless of whether you think the whole thing was a setup, you have to admit that there's a disturbing pattern of really poor behavior, lack of integrity, and flat-out mismanagement.

Why in the world would anyone want this kind of leadership?" Oct 3, 09 12:35 PM

talking points? You watch a little too much Fox News. I suppose you consider "real comments" to be you and a bunch of other people arguing over trivial details of this altercation - but you can't deny that it happened.

I honestly have no idea who's telling the truth on this one and I don't care The fact is that our leaders and their chosen deputies are doing things like driving drunk and then having physical confrontations (perceived or real) with their opponents.

I think most of us would find that a little disturbing. If you don't then I feel sorry for you. Has nothing to do with politics. " Oct 3, 09 2:33 PM

McGintee resigns as East Hampton supervisor

dont you people see this was all a setup? it was the cops! And Anna Throne Hearst! I know because someone sent an anonymous letter that they heard someone whispering about it!" Oct 5, 09 5:00 PM

Kabaot should run!" Oct 6, 09 9:00 AM

Kabot! Kabot! Kabot! At least when she loses the money she doesn't try to hide it! Well, maybe just a little." Oct 6, 09 4:26 PM

Kabot DWI case moved to Riverhead Town Justice Court

Of course you've never heard of cops falsifying breathalyzers... they also falsify media reports to control and manipulate you. Thank god for fair and balanced Fox News to free us of this oppression!
" Oct 6, 09 8:22 PM

yes! totally agree... In fact I just got an anonymous letter from someone... A hard working father of 4 whose wife died, so you know you can trust him... anyway, he heard someone talking in line at waldbaums... they said the town's missing 5 million dollars was actually STOLEN by the police so they could hire all these secret operatives to tail Linda and frame her!

I'm so glad we've solved this case and exposed all the dirty cops. I am sending my letter to the today! I can't wait for them to print it!" Oct 7, 09 9:27 AM

Kabot's proposed $78 million budget will eliminate 48 town jobs next year

What? No altercations with any audience members? Disappointing. Maybe she can pick another fight with that dog in town hall." Oct 7, 09 1:05 PM

People, we need that 4th Judge... to handle all the criminal cases from Kabot and her staff!

She is personally keeping all the lawyers in town in business... and then some.

Are we sure who's paying the bill?" Oct 8, 09 3:14 PM

so let me get this straight... Sam WONT vote for Anna because of "those obnoxious life-size poster boards"... but he WILL vote for a public servant who drives drunk, shirks personal responsibility, and has spent 13 years helping to run our government into the ground.

What's wrong with this picture?" Oct 9, 09 10:38 AM

wait... so tookatz is a gossiper or liar for talking about a 10K rug... but an anonymous, third-hand letter is proof that the cops framed Linda? What are you people smoking?" Oct 9, 09 10:45 AM

keep drinking the kool aid dude. you're delusional" Oct 9, 09 10:47 AM

Um, excuse me but wasn't Anna the one who demanded the audit that uncovered all the missing $... which is still not accounted for?

And last time I checked, the Supervisor proposes the budget, not the council.

I'm not even an Anna supporter. I think all of them should step aside. But you can't blame people on a council for 9 months when Kabot has been involved for 13 years." Oct 9, 09 1:52 PM

Southampton Town board gets details of forensic audit report, creates audit advisory committee

Throne-Holst missed campaign finance filing deadline

ATH has already done one thing Kabot has yet to do in 15 years on the job: apologize and own up to a mistake - even though it's a miniscule one compared to things like DWI and gross fiscal mismanagement.

But hey - Kabot "is under public scrutinty now" - as one genius posted - so you know she'll do a great job!" Oct 23, 09 12:20 PM

Southampton Town candidates debate town finances, services

maybe, just maybe, we wouldn't have gotten into this budget mess if Linda and her pals had been "working tirelessly and around the clock" (her words, not mine) for the past 6 years instead of the past 6 weeks.

It would be so refreshing to have her say once - just ONCE - that mistakes were made on her watch." Oct 28, 09 7:58 PM

Judge orders DA's office to investigate alleged call made following Linda Kabot's DWI arrest

yeah... we don't any speculation in our court system - such as Judges (politically appointed) ordering investigations into anonymous letters with third-hand conspiracy claims in them. You're right, i am so glad there's no speculation like that going on here." Oct 28, 09 8:00 PM

you're right. it was southampton publick house! " Oct 28, 09 8:01 PM

why not? thats exactly what Kabot's supporters did with the anonymous letter. What's to stop anyone from just claiming they heard something from someone somewhere.

the point she's making is that none of it is OK - and that real issues exist like our $11 million missing money that she still wont or cant account for." Oct 28, 09 8:04 PM

of course we pay for it... she's taking her time with the budget so she can find a place to hide the $... maybe put some of it back into the animal shelter. she can drive the dog catcher truck" Oct 28, 09 8:07 PM

Kabot's court date is pushed back to December

remember when this story broke and Kehon swore kabot would be vindicated and cried how unfair it would be to postpone until after the election? Now he's the one asking for the postponement!

What a farce." Oct 29, 09 1:00 PM

well said. NO ONE made this an issue except her. This has nothing to do with what any other politician says or does... she got busted for DWI. Her lawyer pretty much demanded an expedited trial... and then backtracked. facts is facts, has nothing to do with others." Oct 29, 09 2:31 PM

if she was innocent she would have taken the breath test right there on the spot and put an end to all this nonsense. she didn't take the test, and now her defense team is just playing games - Keystone Kops. So utterly transparent and clumsy - just like her management of our town." Oct 29, 09 2:38 PM

Actually, i HAVE been in her position. I took the breath test, passed at .03, shook hands with the officers and went about my business. You have no idea what my political beliefs are - whether you're democrat or republican the act of driving drunk, as a leader of a community, is abhorrent. If she'd only own up to her mistake and show a little humility - instead of blaming everyone from cops to the press - then maybe we could move forward and deal with the real issues here - namely, her gross and possibly criminal mismanagement of town finances." Oct 29, 09 3:53 PM

Of course. It's perfectly OK to circulate conspiracy theories about anonymous letters claiming the police and ATH framedd Kabot - but god forbid anyone should even raise the issue of whether an elected and paid employee is using town money to pay for drivers, sick days etc. Sacrilege!" Oct 30, 09 9:31 AM

No sir - the point is that standard levels do NOT fluctuate. You're the one assuming that someone critical of Kabot has to be a Clinton supporter, by definition. Facts are facts. Getting sex in the White House was naughty and immoral, and Clinton paid a price for it. DWI is a criminal act, and it's totally legit to point that out. there's no double standard at all." Oct 30, 09 2:01 PM

dont you understand that the supervisor, NOT the council, is the one who manages the town finances? What difference does a political contribution make? Kabot was in charge during much of this mess. No one else. That's a fact. Deal with it." Oct 31, 09 8:46 PM

its like trying to reason with a 3-year-old. there is no logic or honesty at all." Oct 31, 09 8:47 PM

who cares about endorsements. Where's our missing money? Why isn't there a criminal investigation into those who "lost" it? Why won't Kabot or whoever controls the audit release it for the people to see? " Nov 1, 09 11:33 AM
