WASHINGTON - The latest accusations of abuse aimed at the president's nominee to be America's ambassador to the United Nations come from a self-described "liberal Democrat" who in 2004 helped organize the Dallas chapter of "Mothers Opposing Bush."
The woman, Melody Townsel, alleged that John Bolton chased her through the halls of a Moscow hotel throwing objects and screaming threats at her in August 1994, according to a letter circulated Saturday by the spokesman for the ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Senator Biden of Delaware.
The committee is scheduled to vote tomorrow on Mr. Bolton's nomination. Until this week, the panel's vote appeared likely to be split along party lines, assuring that the nomination would be forwarded to the Senate floor by a 10-to-8 margin.
But over the weekend, the support of one key Republican who was in Mr. Bolton's camp last week appeared to be wavering. On CNN yesterday, Senator Hagel, a Republican of Nebraska, said at this point he would vote for Mr. Bolton but added, "I have been troubled with more and more allegations, revelations, coming about his style, his method of operation." In the interview, Mr. Hagel, a member of the Senate committee, referred to the letter from Ms. Townsel as one of those recent allegations.
In an interview yesterday, Ms. Townsel said she sent a letter on April 8 to all 18 members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee through the panel's Web site, detailing an incident more than 10 years earlier when she was working as a subcontractor for USAID through a contract in Kyrgyzstan. At the time, Mr. Bolton was a lawyer representing Black, Manafort, Stone & Kelly, the firm that hired Ms. Townsel's company to publicize privatization projects in the Central Asian country.

All the more reason to think he's the man for the job!
WOW .. the Dems are really scrapping for anything aren't they?
bet she's just another "Anita Hill" sent up to make a fool of herself in order to gain ink for the dems.
Another hysterical democrat liar!
I once tripped in a hotel hallway. Bolton missed his elevator because he rushed to help me up.
Liberals make up bad stories. I make up good stories.
You beat me to it.
HOW DAMN CONVENIENT - THERE ARE NO WITNESSES TO HIS ACTIONS.
JUST HOW LOW WILL THESE PEOPLE GO.
LOOKS LIKE THE DONATIONS FROM GEORGE SOROS - WHO HAS BEEN "CONVICTED" OF INSIDER TRADING - TO MEMBERS OF THIS UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT COMMITTEE - ARE WORKING!!
The Secretary-General, Kofi Annan, alleged that John Bolton chased him through the halls of a Moscow hotel throwing objects and screaming threats at him in August 2005, according to a letter circulated Saturday by the spokesman for the ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Senator Biden of Delaware.in the future. Big deal...
Uh huh...and the po-leece report is where? And Black, Manafort, Stone & Kelly have a copy of your official letter of complaint in their files, right? And you retained a copy for your own records, correct? And since this all happened in a Moscow motel, the KGB will be producing secretly recorded audiotapes as well, I'm to presume...
When I was in the cycle accident that crippled me, John Bolton appeared before me bathed in white light. he saved my life and healed me on the spot.
I can make up better stories.
No, I missed watching "Cowleen's" testimony
but I recall reading about it. :)
LOL. Just what I wuz thinking. If Melodious' allegations are true, then it serves to prove that Bolton is The Man for a UN job.
