To the dismay of many individuals, including Senator Geraldine Doe Sherif of Montserrado County, who had gathered in the cafeteria of the Liberian Senate either for cups of coffee and lunch, Senator Jewel Howard-Taylor of Bong County created a lousy scene of disorderliness when she openly rained insults and used invectives on the Management of the NewDawn Newspaper in reaction to a Thursday, October 30, 2014 frontpage headline captioned: Senator Taylor Twists Tongue.
The paper’s article was in response to a falsehood expressed by the Bong Senior Senator in a release she issued on Wednesday, October 29, 2014 against a front page lead story on October 28, 2014 on the L72m she received from the Central Bank of Liberia to fund her campaign activities in Bong County.
Senator Taylor’s Press Statement denied the New Dawn’s Tuesday publication, but in its October 30, 2013 story the attention of its readers were drawn to the fact that the senator was threading on a wrong footing as far as truth telling was concerned, even though a copy of her recording was available.
Apparently realizing the presence of this paper’s correspondent at the Capitol Building on Thursday, October 30, Sen. Taylor made her way to the cafeteria of the Liberian Senate and began using invectives on the entire management team of the New Dawn with no regards to decent Liberian womanhood and the senate she currently serves despite presence of other colleagues, including Geraldine Doe Sherif of Montserrado County and other bystanders, in total disregard to the Code of Conduct Law which prohibits public officials from engaging in the use of abusive languages.
“We all write that bullshit; that completely ass-stray , and I too will dam shit to deal with f–cking shit,” were a bid of what the Senior Senator of Bong County displayed in the Senate’s Cafeteria Thursday at the Capitol. Sen. Taylor, whose current rating is completely discouraging among the people of Bong County, is seeking re-election in the county.
She secured L$72m from the Central Bank of Liberia or CBL, through Executive Governor J. Mills Jones, as micro loan for Bong County, but was now using the money for her campaign activities-one of which she made the recent revelation published on Tuesday, October 28, 2014 by this paper. Constant reports from Bong County speak of her inability to point at any tangible achievement for more than eight years in the Liberian Senate to justify her re-election by the people of Bong County.
Credible reports also received by this paper also revealed that Senator Taylor’s main obstacle in her re-election bid is her inability to own or build a house in the county since her incumbency. She currently leases an apartment building from the Proprietor of the Crystal Hotel in Gbarnga, Mr. Emmanuel Gibson. She has, for the past years, always slept in the Crystal Hotel, now located in the Rubber Factory Community in Gbarnga.
Senator Jewel Howard Taylor served as Deputy Governor of the National Bank of Liberia, now CBL prior to the presidency of her former husband Charles G. Taylor. As First Lady of Liberia, she served as Chairman of Board of Directors John F. Kennedy Medical Center where it was alleged that she could not account for the Taiwanese Funds for the revitalization of the hospital. Though she is strongly considered a failed politician to the people of Bong County, Senator Taylor is begging on knees for a second chance.
