...And the Winner

Of the coveted White Trash Republic "Mother of the Year" award goes to:

Wendy Cook of Saratoga, New York.

Here is the heartwarming story that won over our judges in this very competitive competition :

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. — A woman had her 5-year-old daughter and 2-month-old son with her as she took drugs and performed sex for money, New York police said.

Wendy Cook, 37, of Saratoga was arrested along with four other women during a prostitution sweep early Monday, according to Schenectady Police Lt. Brian Kilcullen.

Cook was arrested when she offered to perform a sex act on an undercover officer for money, Kilcullen said.

While Cook's children were in the car with her, she performed sex acts on at least two men for money, smoked crack cocaine in the car and even snorted cocaine off the infant's stomach while she was breastfeeding, Kilcullen said.

Cook is in Schenectady County Jail without bail on charges of prostitution and child endangerment, pending a court appearance Tuesday. Her children were turned over to family members.

For me, it was the breastfeeding part that really slam dunked it. That told me that despite her tough life, trying to eak out a living for her and the kids, the health and well being of her children always came first!

UPDATE! Stop the presses! This story just gets better and better...maybe we'll make her Mother of the Decade!

Apparently Miz Cook is the daughter of a prominent family there in Sarasota, of the horse racing kind. The owners of "Funny Cide", Kentucky Derby winner of '03. We'll let the New York Daily News pick it up from here:

The Thoroughbred missed his shot to become the 12th Triple Crown winner when he finished third in the Belmont Stakes.

Sources said Knowlton and his wife recently reported their daughter missing.

Cops said Cook performed oral sex on men in the front seat of their cars while her kids sat in the back.

At her arraignment on prostitution and child endangerment charges, Schenectady City Judge Vince Versaci told her, "I've never come across such an atrocity in my life, and that's saying a lot."

"Congratulations," he sarcastically told the sobbing mother, whose kids were placed with relatives.

He set bail at $15,000 cash or $30,000 bond.

Cook was one of five alleged prostitutes netted in a crackdown this week in the upstate town. She used to run a Saratoga bookshop featuring Funny Cide memorabilia.

I was being sarcastic, dear, but thank you for pointing out that juicey fun fact that was omitted in the earlier news report. And since I don't follow the ponies, her name did not ring a bell. That makes the award even more appropriate.

I'm not sure about making her the mother of the year. After all there has to be a woman out there who would have had the 4-year-old daughter go down on the john while she sat in the back seat and snorted coke off her infant's stomach.

Yes, Lem, kinda makes ya pine for the good ol' days, when crack-addled mothers would pack up the tots in the car for an evening of armed robberies. Gosh, how long ago was that?...2 weeks? My, how time flies!
