Was Patsy deliberately "pumped and ventilated" until after the election deadline?[edit]

Is there proof that Patsy Mink was maintained "alive" until after the deadline passed to have her name removed from the ballot? What do the medical records show? AllVowelTown 21:51, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

The medical records were never released. The time and date of death was never released. There are published reports that describe "misinformation" and "manipulation" in the month leading up to the announcement of her death.

Patsy's funeral was very large and very public, and occurred before the election. Around 5000 people were there. The vote for her in the election was considered to be a tribute by most people, who were aware of her death and did not want a Republican to be elected in this resoundingly Democratic district. AllVowelTown, maybe you should keep your pajamas on and got back to what I assume is your right-wing blog where you can spread more rumors.

I happened to be looking for title IX info and saw the reference to Patsy Mink, and read her bio here. What a great role model for women. And for her contribution to equal rights for women she ought to be on a us coin, I think. As the father of 2 daughters who have had unfettered access to university education and scholarships for their achievements, I truly appreciate her commitment to equal access to higher education. I guess george w isn't all bad.

Early career discrimination?[edit]

I just saw a documentary by PBS Hawaii in the SF Women's Film Festival, and it stated, I believe, that when Patsy received her law degree, she was unable to find work in the continental U.S. because she was a woman. She was quoted on video as saying that one of the reasons she was given was that she was "a woman, and this job is demanding and means you'd have to work late at night, and women shouldn't be out at night."

Should this be mentioned? Egthegreat (talk) 22:11, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
