While social media, and new age journalism provide many "new" avenues of expressing one's displeasure with life's rotten deals, sometimes people go loopy.
And so is the sad case of Lilly Collette.
Lilly is a regular poster on the Charleston Post and Courier on-line edition, who spends most of her time ranting about how she and her husband were wronged during a child support hearing 20 years ago.
A case that due to South Carolina's child support laws continues to cause considerable hardship to Lilly and her family.
While I don't doubt Lilly's claims her methods leave little doubt that she is several fries short of a happy meal.
In Lilly's own words:
"I have been speaking out against issues of public corruption in the Charleston County family court for years now. I have focused on a case involving my husband as a victim of that corruption—because I am qualified to testify on those facts through first-hand personal experience.
I have not had to use or rely on exaggerated personal opinions—because my stand is firmly based on documented evidence and facts found in public records.
I have not had to re-interpret or re-argue established law—because every shred of law pertinent to the case issues stands in favor of my husband and me.
I do not owe or offer any apologies that the ‘evidence’, ‘facts’ and ‘law’ stand in our favor.
The people that have profited from the crimes against my husband and me and their minion’s have mocked and ridiculed me for defending my husband and daring to speak out against this criminal enterprise. While that was the risk I took when I stood up and fought back, no public official has had the courage to stand with me—not a single one.
I offer thanks to God alone that as a disabled old woman I still have the strength through his grace to stand up for what is right.
Where others stand is not my burden to bear. "
I know you hear the Twilight Zone theme music.
But there's more if you care to wade through this nonsense you'll find that Lilly's husband was married years ago to Susan, they divorced and somehow, its not clear but Richard was deemed a non custodial parent and required to pay child support.
He didn't and years later the courts caught up with him. He was jailed and his social security wages garnished.
Hummmmm or something like that.
Below is more crazyness from Lilly. Read if you dare, and maybe you can help this poor woman before her brain explodes? My sincerest hope is that someone in the legal community will read this and say "hey she just needs _________" and file whatever motion needs to be filled to fix this mess.
For more oddness read the court brief Lilly tried to file here.
After months of crazy comments, Cedar has tired of Lilly's multiple personalities and so I have closed the comments. It's my show and I'll do what I want. But you can always find Ms. Lilly over at the Post and Courier waving her arms and ranting about whatever.
