Is Alabama GOP insider Jessica Medeiros Garrison positioning herself to ride on the Donald Trump train, even though she was a Jeb Bush gal not long ago?

Jessica Garrison and son: "Go, Jeb"
(From facebook.com)
A recent post on her Facebook page suggests Alabama GOP operative Jessica Medeiros Garrison is trying to jump on the Donald Trump train, now that it seems to be a winning proposition. That's odd because photos elsewhere on the page indicate Garrison has been a Jeb Bush supporter for some time.

Does that mean our gal Jessica -- best known for her extramarital affair with Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange -- is a political "two-timer," especially when it seems to her benefit?

The Facebook post in question does not amount to much; it simply is a photo of Garrison in a lovey-dovey pose with U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) and U.S. Circuit Judge Bill Pryor. She has worked for both men in Alabama and has called Pryor her "mentor."

What was the purpose of the post? Well, I can't read Garrison's mind (and I sure would not want to try), but the post was dated November 20, which is two days after President-Elect Trump announced that Sessions would be his nominee as U.S. attorney general. One day after the Garrison post, on November 21, a "content warning" began to appear at Legal Schnauzer following our report about an explosion of interest on the Web about reporting here on Pryor's connections to 1990s gay-pornography via badpuppy.com. We also reported that a second nude photo of Pryor had surfaced, just in time for a possible confirmation hearing if he is nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court.

For several weeks we predicted that, because of his ties to Sessions, Pryor would be a top candidate as Trump's choice to fill the vacant seat left by the late Antonin Scalia. Sure enough, on December 16, CNN and al.com reported that Pryor was one of two top candidates for the appointment, along with Diane Sykes from the Seventh Circuit.

So Garrison just happened to run a photo of herself with one Trump nominee and a likely Trump nominee. Gee, could Jessica be angling for a job in Washington, D.C., with the Trump administration -- even though she's under a child-custody order not to move more than 60 miles from her ex husband's home in Tuscaloosa? Could Jessica be looking for ways around that order, perhaps working for Sessions or Pryor from her home in Mountain Brook?

We will save that question for another day, but Garrison's post seems to have had the desired effect among her Facebook sycophants. Consider these comments from "friends" and responses from Garrison:

Peggy Harris Hollis: Girl, you really get around with the greatest people!

Jessica: I just choose to work for people I respect. Lucky to have had the opportunity to work for both of these great Americans.

Does that mean she respects Donald Trump, who is set to become "Pussy Grabber in Chief" on January 20. Bejeebus!! Here's another comment and response:

Neecie Tarrant: If you don't go to D.C., Jessica, please consider public service in Sessions' seat. Is that possible?

Jessica (blushing): Not in the cards for me at this point in my life. But I am certainly willing to help good people that want to serve. (Notice that Garrison doesn't say: "Holy crap, Batman! how could anyone think I'm remotely qualified to be a U.S. Senator? Does this "friend" have foam rubber for brains?" Nope Garrison gives the impression that she has the bona fides to be a U.S. Senator, but it's just not a convenient time for her now -- as in, "I have a kid, dammit!")

Speaking of kids, notice the photo above of Garrison and her little sprout, Michael. Note the head gear they are toting -- it says "Jeb" as in "Bush." Looks like Jess was all in for "Jeb," until he put the nation asleep during the GOP primaries and got crushed, run over by the Trump Train. Now, it looks like Jess might be angling for some kind of job with the world's most powerful "Pussy Grabber." After all, he's a man she can respect, and Jess has a long history of standing up for the rights of women.

I guess that includes the right for women to have their genitalia grabbed by some clown with a quick stiffy, especially if he's rich, and famous, and has the coloring of a Cheeto.

Is Jessica a loyal gal? Well last time I checked, Donald Trump and Jeb Bush weren't too fond of each other. From a recent Los Angeles Times article about the two GOP "giants":

As Donald Trump softens his harsh rhetoric on immigration, Jeb Bush has issued his own critique: The GOP nominee is “morphing” and Bush doesn’t like it.

"All the things that Donald Trump railed against, he seems to be morphing into — it’s kind of disturbing," Bush, who was trounced by Trump in the Republican primaries this year, said Thursday on WABC Radio.

Trump repeatedly castigated the former governor of Florida last spring for his call for a path to legal status for the estimated 11 million people in the country illegally.

In rallies and debates, Trump relentlessly called Bush “weak” and slammed his immigration plan as amnesty. He vowed instead to round up and deport everyone in the country illegally.

Would Jessica roll on Jeb Bush, without even a sloppy kiss goodbye? And what about Luther Strange, to whom she has pledged her everlasting fidelity?

Garrison has acknowledged, under oath, in court documents that reports about her affair with Strange likely have caused some in the GOP firmament to view her as "damaged goods." She and Strange both have said under oath that he had to take extraordinary steps to sweep the story under the bedspread and help save her job with the Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA) -- a job she no longer has, by the way.

More on that inside story coming soon.

You can bet Jessica G will be trying to use her Sessions and Pryor connections somehow.

Jessica Garrison must have the worst taste in men ever -- Strange, Sessions, Pryor, Bush.

Of course, all she cares about is whether they can advance her career.

If Garrison jumps on the Trump Train, she probably will want to jump off in a few months when all the sh-t starts coming home to roost.

I think Jessica Garrison is a Republican for the same reason Clarence Thomas is a Republican. If you are a minority of any kind -- female, black, gay, what have you -- there is much less competition on the GOP side. As a Dem, Garrison would have to compete against a whole lot of smart, capable women, and she would have a tough hill to climb. Going GOP probably was a good career move for someone of her limited abilities.

I seem to recall in a recent post you reported that Ms. Garrison's only apparent job these days is "of counsel" at Balch & Bingham -- that she had given up positions with RAGA, etc. I wonder how many cases she has handled at Balch. Does she do any real legal work?

That's a darned good question, Henri. The answer could be found on alacourt.

Ruh Roh, you ran a picture of Garrison's kid. Someone surely will be whining about that soon.

JMG has an impressive history with loyalty. Just ask her ex husband.
