Okay, the public forgave Bill Clinton and his oval office meetings with a notorious intern. It was “private”, “consenting Adult” behavior.
But how about a presidential contender who is a child molester? Surely the public wouldn’t tolerate such a thing, yes?
Only the public does tolerate such behavior in the presidential candidates especially when powerful parties use all their resources to cover up the truth, branding the accuser as the perpetrator.
Georgette Robinson is a middle-aged woman in the grips of an unthinkable dilemma. She has witnessed a candidate for the highest office in the land in the act of molesting a child. A candidate for whom she herself was his personal publicist. If anyone should have believed in her candidate, it is Georgette Robinson.
Of course the candidate had to be, first and foremost, removed from running for office. Or so Georgette Robinson thought.
No one would believe her.
Or if they believed her, they didn’t care. It was too close to the election to find and train another viable candidate. Though Georgette had tangible proof that the Republican party’s candidate was a child molester, too many important folks had their hopes and money riding on the candidate. It would not do to remove the candidate so close to the election.
Better to demonize the accuser.
In her desperation to be believed, Georgette ascertains that the only way she could break the barrier of Manny Roberts’ personal protectors was to find a way, any way no matter how outrageous, to get the country’s attention so she could make her claim.
Throughout the book, Georgette demonstrates how she came to her decision to hijack a small but very important airplane: through studied observation of the wildlife in her very own garden!
It’s funny, kind of sad, wild, outrageous and most important, it really CAN happen.
Who’s to say Georgette Robinson wouldn’t make a great President her own self?
